Are you one of the 78% of Americans who live paycheck to paycheck?
If so, even a minor expense can trigger a series of overdraft fees, digging you into a financial hole—fast. Surprise expenses are a part of life, but that doesn’t make them any easier. Fortunately, there are ways to make a little bit of dough if you’re in a pinch.
Host a yard sale. This requires a bit of planning and preparation, but the results are worth it. Go through your garage, basement, and storage, and pull out anything you no longer use or don’t plan to use in the future. Clothing, furniture, jewelry, books, kids’ toys, and exercise equipment are all fair game. Select a date (or two) and then advertise on Craigslist and Facebook or take out an ad in your local newspaper.
Start a side hustle. Thanks to the rise of the “gig economy” a growing number of Americans are participating in side hustles. Companies like DoorDash, GrubHub, Uber, and Lyft offer opportunities to make some extra cash on the side. Here’s a list of 20 platforms worth considering.
