50 Legit Ways to Make Money Before Christmas from Home
With Christmas coming just around the corner, everyone is battening down the hatches, tightening the old purse strings and cutting back to save money so they can buy their loved ones Christmas presents. And if you're trying to save money, or looking for ways to make some extra money for Christmas. I'm going to post 50 Legit Ways to Make Money Before Christmas, from Home! I'll do 50 different posts and then link them all together. And each method is a tried and tested way and confirmed working way to make money.
So with that said, here's money making method #1.
1. Hold a Yard Sale.
Every year, we have more and more junk just piling up in our home or garages. We get given electronic goods or something else altogether that eventually gets consigned to the back of the closet or wardrobe or stuffed in the attic to be long lost and forgotten about. And many people have old DVD's, CD's, bikes, power tools or even kitchen appliances that they don't use or even want or have a purpose for anymore.
So how about holding a Yard Sale?
There are several people on my street that do this. So once or twice a year, usually leading up to Christmas, they'll put everything they want to sell out on their front yard and sit out there with a flask of coffee in some deck chairs and stick price labels on everything that they want to sell. Then as people walk past, they can mosey and browse through it all and see if there's anything they like.
They don't usually sell all their stuff. But what they don't sell they just pack away again and then put it out during another Yard Sale at another time of the year.
The best times to hold a Yard Sale are coming up to Christmas in December. But the warmer months can be good as well as there are more people walking about.
However as the purpose of doing this it to make some extra cash for Christmas, now is a good time to go through all your old stuff and see what you no longer want or need. And start listing it all down along with how much you'll take for each item.
You could put a sign up in your front yard to say there's a sale on. Although people will be able to see that. But you could also advertise it in your local shop windows. Whether it's the local corner store or some high street shop windows. And you may even be able to place a small ad in some local newspapers or magazines to drum up more business too.
Got a gazebo? Due to it mostly being wet and rainy this time of year, it might be good for you to put a gazebo up and place everything you want to sell under it.
It's not essential, but it can create a better focal point. You could even create a large banner to let people know that there is a Yard Sell on. Just in case they wondered why on earth you've decided to display all of your unwanted obsessions on the front lawn lol.
So that's Christmas money making method #1!
Have you ever held a yard or garage sell?
What tips can you give people that want to do it?
