Earning extra money is my go-to method for boosting any savings goal. Saving dough is one way to boost your nest egg, but earning extra cash can really put it into overdrive.
My husband and I are planning to move across the country during the summer, so we need extra money to put into our relocation fund. We’re both self-employed, so this allows us to have a flexible work schedule and take on extra part-time work. Below are some unusual and fun ideas I’m personally using to build up extra funds.
1. Get Paid for Your Skills
Depending on your skills, you can offer editing, designing, or writing work in exchange for pay. And the best part is, you can do it from the comfort of your own home and on your own time. You get to work with clients virtually and bring in money right now.
Freelance writing sites such as ODesk and micro-jobs sites such as Fiverr enable you to turn your talents into a viable second income stream. Who knows? In time, you might even be able to make your passion into your full-time gig.
