Cool Ways to Supplement Your Income

The economic downturn has really turned American creativity into high gear. So many people have been fired, but many of them equally know it is difficult to find a job in the existing environment. Many of these people have therefore started to find creative ways to make money to support their families. Below we will help provide you with a few cool tricks so that you can make some money on the side. Once you start to get the hang of it, you will be able to do it on your own and hopefully make the money you need to survive.

Ways to Make Money

There are a lot of different cool ways to make money, but for families who are trying to feed many hungry mouths, the coolest ways are the easiest ones. Sometimes the things within your body are worth the most. You can go to a blood bank and give blood for a quick buck and they usually offer food at the same time. For men, there is also a sperm bank that offers quite a hefty sum of money in order to help infertile mothers.

If you have a little more time to make money or you need to support a whole family off of your earnings, then you are probably going to want to figure something out that is a little more lucrative. One cool thing to do is make something that you like (such as arts and crafts) and then sell them on eBay. Many people look on eBay for different collectable items and you can do this in your spare time or whenever you get the chance. You can always write an ebook on a topic you are good at that might teach others a skill. If you are good at writing you can go on fivver and offer to write articles for other people. Article writing is a great money maker for people too. There really is a plethora of ways you can make money either online or offline.

Keeping Good Finances

A lot of people who really need more money aren’t suffering for a lack of money. They are actually suffering because they are spending too much. Many of them have already spent too much and they’re now paying so much interest on their debt that they might as well be siphoning off money. If you fall in this category then there are a few things you need to do immediately.

The first thing you need to do is to find a company who can teach you how to manage your money or get a company who can help you with your credit card debt or even payday loan debt relief help if you have payday loans. There are specialists that can help you to get a real payday loan settlement that will make the payments much easier. Once you get out of your debts, you will be able to survive on a lot less money.

Nice article; I like your point that it's not a problem of lack of money that people have, but rather its spending too much out of the money that they do have. That is so true!

Thank you Cynthia! I write to get the word out that there is help for those who really need it. So many people have no idea a service like mine exists and they don't have to be without food and no money for essential bills.

Nice little article, with some crafty ways to make money, I even have one to add! When I was around 6 or 7 years old, my mother was in a spot where she needed money and fast! She didn't want to get on welfare so she decided to take a can of green spray paint and some cheap plastic stencils and go around offering to repaint peoples house numbers on the curb where they had worn off $5 a pop and it didn't take long before she had enough money to pay the bills and buy some food.

That is a very smart idea. I see a lot of people doing that now. I used to sell greeting cards door to door when I was about 7 or 8.
