Saving money for a house can be, not only intimidating, but slow. Once you’ve opened
your piggy bank to find twenty dollars worth of nickels and dimes, you should start thinking
about earning some extra cash. There are plenty of ways to earn money the old fashioned
way, like pet sitting or having a yard sale, but surprisingly, there are a lot of unique
ways to make money if you just look around you. Here are five of our favorites:
Look into selling your jewelry. WP Diamonds will buy jewelry and diamonds and wire you cash for it immediately. Aunt Edna’s diamond bracelets can be put towards a practical purchase, instead of collecting dust. 2. Are you opinionated? Fantastic! There are plenty of websites out there that will pay you for your opinions, but Slice the Pie is a website that pays for consumer feedback on almost anything, including music. Yes, you can get paid to listen to a music clip and write a review of the various elements like rhythm and vocals. Slice the Pie has numerous review categories from fashion to mobile phone accessories, all paid. 3. Rather than wait for New Years to make an annual workout and diet resolution, get fitness motivation in the form of cash. AchieveMint is an app that rewards you points for doing “healthy things,” like working out or even checking in at a health food store. Over time, these points add up to earn various rewards in the form of cash or gift cards. The app can be synched up to fitness trackers like FitBit, so any workouts will automatically be logged. 4. In the US, every person has the wonderful responsibility to serve jury duty. Now everyone wishes there was some way to ease the pain, and thankfully there is. Online Verdict is a website that will pay you to look at cases in your county. You simply review the case facts, give your opinion on any issues, and send it in. So not only are you serving your duty as a US citizen, you are getting paid for it. 5. On sites like Ebay, you can pretty much sell anything in your house, but what about the outside? Sell Your Trees will pay you for the unwanted trees on your property. Not only will you they pay for the trees, but they take care of all the removal and clean up without an extra cost. Why pay someone to remove trees, when this site will pay you for them? Just think of how many times you complained about raking up all those leaves in the fall.
