Making Money Not Just Saving It

Most of the tips I've written about have been on saving money or stretching your dollars and cents further. Here are a couple of tips on making some extra money:
  • Do some babysitting - if you have kids you can offer to baby sit children of a similar age
  • Deliver leaflets for local businesses - have a chat to your local pizza parlor next time and offer to distribute to the local area, friends and family
  • Sell extra or unwanted items online such as eBay or other auction sites
  • Have a yard sale
  • Complete some online surveys for cash and prizes. PickaSurvey.com has a free application that downloads surveys which you can click on the survey of choice. There are surveys for cash, prizes and points. It save me looking around the internet for legitimate surveys and they're free to take.
