Make Money

New to PH.com, but love it already. Broke my leg 2 months ago. Had surgery and have been recovering ever since. I was planning to get a CDL license before the accident happened. I am currently unemployed and I MUST start earning income somehow. I was thinking of getting a PT job until I can get the CDL, but my leg/foot/knee swell up when I stand on it too long. Yes, I can kind of stand on it for balance, but I do need to use one crutch. I do not qualify for disability. I am a senior lady...Read More...

It’s official; the iPod is dead. Apple has officially discontinued the last iPod in its lineup, the iPod touch, bringing it all to a close in 2022. We recently published an article on how much money some iPods are still selling for on eBay, so be sure to check in your drawers and your closets to see if you might have a few hundred dollars lying around (that’s always fun to find). On the flip side, I’d love to hear any stories anyone has about their iPod back in the day. It indeed was a...Read More...

What's the best job or side gig you've ever had and why?

Maryann
I'm curious: what's a job you held that you just loved and why? For me, it was actually my first job as a teenager. I was a librarian's assistant. I basically spent every day near books. As a certified bookworm, it was a dream role and the additional pocket money was the cherry on the top, especially as a teen. I have a career in marketing now that I absolutely love, but when I think back, working at the library was definitely an amazing gig I'll always remember.Read More...

6 Easy Ways To Make Money with Micro Jobs in the Gig Economy

Making money from home has become increasingly easy thanks to the growing sensation of the Gig Economy. Not only has remote work, and work-from-home jobs given people more flexibility in their schedules, it’s also opened the floodgates of new work opportunities we couldn't previously imagine. As many employees find freelance work more opportunistic, and lucrative, many are now stifled by the number of choices they have when it comes to small, or micro-jobs they can easily complete from home.Read More...

Easiest Way I Make Money Blogging

Carrie Kay
I am not your typical run of the mill blogger. I don't follow the rules. I write how I want, about what I want and don't miss a single view of someone who doesn't like what I say. I don't write the stupid long posts about how I found a certain recipe. I read one and after 5 lines I scrolled to the recipe. My finger stopped the scrolling at a point where the writer stated after he had sent his family and friends on a scavenger hunt throughout the house looking for this recipe, I had to stop...Read More...

Is burnout inevitable when you work multiple jobs?

Tiffany Connors
Hi Penny Hoarders! Hope everyone’s having a good Thursday. I've been going through a money situation for the past year, and I was wondering how the rest of you handle this kind of thing. Early last summer, my husband and I realized we needed to replace our bathroom tub/shower and window — they were in really bad shape. The contractor gave us an estimate that was within our budget, but of course nothing ever goes as planned with home renos. The total cost ended up being 50% more than the...Read More...

Bad money ideas

BeckAtsila
Hi guys! Hope you're staying safe. I'm working on an e-book, and it got me remembering trying to make money as a kid. My parents never encouraged me, not even with a lemonade stand, so I went to my friends with advice to make money. Sometimes this resulted in good ideas, and other times--well, some kids really need therapy. There was a rumor in my hometown (a small suburb of Indianapolis) that Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis had a $10,000 reward for catching grave robbers. To a...Read More...

Selling old dishes/china?

Will S.
I just read this Penny Hoarder article on selling old dishes and china . From those I've talked to, having an old set of china lying around is more common than I realized. I have a couple hundred pieces of china my grandparents procured from postwar Germany. Even though it's beautiful stuff, I'm all for finding a new home for it. But I can't just give it away or donate it to a thrift store. So, it's currently sitting boxed up in a storage unit after dragged it across the country during a...Read More...
