Ways to earn extra cash before Christmas Tip 10: Sell your service Pet Sitting #12daysOfChristmas

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is fast approaching, I hope everyone is having a great time getting ready for Christmas. For the past few weeks I have been sharing ways to earn cash for the holidays, in a series of blog posts. In this series I promise to share some ways you can earn some extra cash before the big day.


Today is day 10 and the tips is:

Sell your service: Pet sitting





Yesterday the tip was babysitting, today's tip is similar: Pet Sitting

Again with the holidays also come a lot of traveling and families with pets are left scrambling trying to find a safe place to leave their fury buddies.

if this is your kinda thing, you can start offering your pet sitting services to friends, families, and neighbors.

To a pet owner it is such a relief to know that your fury friend is in a warm environment
with someone they know instead of some expensive boarding house.


I have a lady at church who does that. She's watch my dog and several other friend in multiple occasion when we had to be out of town.

she charge half of what the boarding house would charge and the level of care she provides is so much better.

So if you are a pet lover who doesn't mind having a few fury friends around you can certainly cash out on it during the holidays.

Win-win

My mom does that and she is certainly pocketing a few coins for the holidays.

This is certainly not for everyone. You definitely have to have a knack for it. My mom is a retired teacher, she crave children around her, so for her it's a win-win.

Ways to earn extra cash before Christmas Tip 8: Start a small MLM business #12daysOfChristmas

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is fast approaching, I hope everyone is having a great time getting ready.
For the past few weeks I have been sharing ways to earn cash for the holidays (and even year round), in a series of blog posts. In this series I promise to share some ways you can earn some extra cash before the big day.



Today is day 8 and the tips is:

Start a small MLM/direct selling business



One quick way to earn some cash is to start a small MLM or direct selling business. Why? they are usually low investment with quick turn around, with very little work. They are great way to supplement your income.

There are so many out there, with some research you can easily figure out which one will fit your needs and lifestyle better.

The very popular ones : Mary Kay, Avon, JuicePlus, Amway, BeachBody etc...

I have a friend who sells Mary Kay, over the holidays she make pretty baskets with her Mary Kay products and distribute them at offices and local business.

Pretty clever way to move some products and earn 50% of the gross. NOT BAD!

I suppose the same could be done with Avon.

I myself is a direct distributor for JuicePlus, I found it a great way to help people lead a healthy lifestyle and also earn a supplemental income all year round but especially around the Holidays. I lost my job back in May and JuicePlus and eBay has been my main source of income. 
Just to say IT WORKS!

There are plenty of direct selling companies out there with great compensation to choose from. It all depends on your needs, lifestyle and how much time you want to invest.

Have you ever try direct selling, MLM business?

Ways to earn extra cash before Christmas Tip 7: Selling on craigslist and consignment stores #12daysOfChristmas

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is fast approaching, I hope everyone is having a great time getting ready for Christmas. For the past few weeks I have been sharing ways to earn cash for the holidays, in a series of blog posts. In this series I promise to share some ways you can earn some extra cash before the big day.



Today is day 7 and the tips is 2 for 1:

Sell items on craigslist or consignment stores


Just like selling on Facebook, craigslist work the same way, like virtual yard sale.
Find all the stuff you want to sell, kids clothing and toys, electronics and whatnot

Take pictures of everything and write a good description, with clothing be sure to list measurements, condition, color and name you prices.

You can go from there and start receiving offers. Just like Facebook sales, craigslist transaction does require you to meet with your customers. 
BE CAREFUL!!!
Meet in public places, if your spidey senses are tingling about an individual, you have to right to not do business with them. Use wisdom in dealing with folks online. Otherwise, selling used items on craigslist can help you earn some quick cash for Christmas.

Now for consignment selling, there are several local consignment shop that will buy good gently use clothing, shoes and handbag from local consumers.

Kids clothing are a big hit, because most of the times, children outgrew their clothes before they get full wear out of them. Places like Plato's closet will buy them from you at a discounted prices.
Do some research for your neighborhood and earn yourself some cash to cover the new clothes you have to buy. :)

Have you ever sell on Craigslist or Consignment?

This Christmas

Hi Guys!
How's the Christmas preparations coming along? I know I've been talking about making money a lot this pass week, so I think I'd take a money break this week end to actually ENJOY the season.

So I took the kids downtown to see the Christmas light and fake snow. We had a blast! I was the biggest kid, we ride the trolley around town and saw the 600 tons Christmas sand tree. It was the coolest things I've seen in a while.


Schedule snowfall, tree light show and water fountains dancing to the sound of music. It is truly magical. Our South Florida weather doesn't give us snow but we manage LOL 




Who knows I could get this excited over fake snow? 

I hope you are stopping and smelling the hot cocoa and not giving too much into the stress of the season.

Spend time with friends and family this is what they will truly remember.

How's your Christmas season coming along?

Ways to earn extra cash before Christmas Tip 6: Selling handcrafted items on Etsy #12daysOfChristmas

Hi guys!
I hope everyone is having a great time getting ready for Christmas. In this series I promise to share some ways you can earn some extra cash before the big day.



So far I've share 5 ways you can earn cash from things you already have. I mention having a garage sale, trade used items on the Amazon trading program, Selling on eBay, Selling on Amazon, Selling on Facebook, well today is day 6 of our series. earn cash by selling handcrafted items on Etsy




Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect to buy and sell unique goods. If you make things, or you're crafty and artsy Esty is for you. Esty is also huge on handmade, vintage items, art and supplies. You can earn some cash selling things like handmade jewelry, custom clothing, costumes etc...
I'm a huge Etsy consumer, I have gotten Tutus for my girls, custom labels, even design work for my blog. 
So it's a matter of thinking outside the box. For example, this woman has taken her own stock photography, created a store on Etsy that opened in April. She has sold over 2,200 stock images since opening. At $15 an image she has earned 33k in 6 months with little to no work because I'm sure they are probably digital downloads. https://www.etsy.com/shop/KateMaxShop.
It is absolutely doable.

Have you ever sold or buy anything on Etsy?

Ways to earn extra cash before Christmas Tip 5: Selling on Facebook #12daysOfChristmas

Hi guys!
I hope everyone is having a great time getting ready for Christmas. In this series I promise to share some ways you can earn some extra cash before the big day. 

Today is day 5, earn cash by selling used items on Facebook


On day 1 I share a tip on hosting  a garage sale to earn extra cash, but as it turn out, for some folks in the cold part of the world this may not be the best idea. in which case this one is for you!

Selling on Facebook. Facebook  is great for catching up with friends and family, but it is also a wonderful way to make money by selling items around the house you no longer need.

Facebook have local buying and trading groups, that works like virtual yard sale. There are several of them in my area, chances are you have one or several of these groups in your area too. Find a group, by searching for your city in the search box and then ask to join any of the groups that look interesting to you. If you cannot find a group, you can always start one yourself!

Find all the stuff you want to sell, kids clothing and toys, electronics and whatnot
(sometimes people would post things they would want to buy, if you have it.. JACKPOT!)

Take pictures of everything and write a good description, with clothing be sure to list measurements, condition, color and name you prices.

You can go from there and start receiving offers.

Be mindful that Facebook groups are public forums anyone can join, by anyone I mean sweet mom looking for kids items and creepys too.

Exercise caution! Always private message important info like phone number and location to interested parties. use public places for meets and exchange.

if your spidey senses are tingle about an individual, you have to right to not do business with them. BE CAREFUL!

Have you sold anything on Facebook before?
