There are times in life when you need to make money somehow while something that you have always wanted to do does not bring you any money. But instead of waiting tables while looking for your big break, you can consider some employment possibilities that are lying on the surface and will help you to get through a difficult transition period in your life.
Organize Tag Sale
Go through your attic and closets and get out the things that are collecting dust. Slap price stickers on the things that you don’t need, post flyers in your neighborhood to advertise the sale and arrange a store in your driveway. It is possible that your neighbors will be interested in some of your things and will shell out some cash for it.
Get a Roommate
If you want to revive college memories and save some money, you might get a roommate. You will be able to split the rent and use the saved money for your needs. If you have a friend looking for a place, offer him your place. Or, if you are really adventurous, place an ad on Craigslist.
Rent out Your Driveway
If you have limited means, it is clear that you will rather ride the bus or take the train. So what do you need your driveway for? Put up posters or place an ad on the Internet to rent out the available asphalt in your driveway. The busier your neighborhood is, the higher your rate can be.
Earn Money on Your Childhood Toys
Rummage through your childhood toys and put your childhood memories aside. Chances are, you own the right action figure or doll and can sell it for a nice sum. If you are lucky, you will become a few thousand dollars richer.
Look for Sports Memorabilia and Sell Them
Sports memorabilia are always in demand. Look for jerseys, balls, autographs, jerseys and even jock straps or locks of hair. Some sports memorabilia have been known to sell for extremely large sums of money at auctions.
There is a chance that an old chair that you will buy at a yard sale is worth thousands of dollars. Go to yard sales and auctions to search for little treasures, study the history of art and never repaint or varnish anything.
