Looking for ways to earn money? Are you a stay at home Mom that needs a part-time job? Maybe you're disabled, and need to work-at-home? Or simply retired and just need to earn some extra cash? There are many reasons that we need or want to earn extra money, so I've put together a list of possible options for that include work-at-home jobs, ways to sell your stuff, SwagBucks and donating your stuff.
Okay, so you’ve tried to sell it online, you’ve held Yard Sales, and you’ve still got that thingamajig sitting in your basement, attic or closet. You haven’t used it in years, and probably will never use it. As long as you're certain it's not an antique worth thousands or millions of dollars, stop storing it indefinitely. There are folks out there that will use it, so donate it. There are many organizations out there that will either sell your goods for a minimal amount, or give them away for free to the very needy. Many of these organizations will also provide a charitable tax deduction for your donated goods, and it’s important that you look for and/or ask about this for tax purposes before donating. Of course, the money won't come later until you write off these donations on your tax returns.
Here are the main organizations that many choose to donate to. Please visit their websites for locations, hours, and the types of goods they will accept.
