@Adam Work from home jobs can indeed sometimes be to good to be true. One need to be so careful these days. Quite a bit of hype going on, which is nothing but hot air and empty promises. Although I'm not quite familiar with the mentioned sites in your outstanding post. I have however worked with sites like Upwork, Guru and Freelancer. But job applications get approved based on your resume. Mostly online writing and social media jobs.

A lot of companies are making it possible to work from home. Especially with the the generational shift in our work force. I personally work for a company that was very traditional, but since I do digital marketing, I could do it from anywhere. I moved to be near my fiance for 6 months before we got married and since my job didn't want to lose me, they made it possible to work from home. Now there is someone else in the company who works part time from home. Sometimes, all you gotta do is ask.

@Carlos Ortega I personally do a lot more estimating. I do however have a scale which I use sometimes. I generally charge FREE shipping so I just try to estimate a number into the price. One thing you can also do is if you are selling a similar item that other people have listed, if you go to their item and click on the "sell one like this" link, it will copy the weight and dimensions that person has set. This is not always accurate but you can get a ballpark number. For the most accuracy I...

All of these are great ideas when trying to earn extra income. I agree that surveys, etc. can be a big waste of time and really are not worth it.

Thanks! estatesales.net can be really helpful for this. You can buy in as large or small a quantity that way. Additionally, writing to consignment stores in your area and asking if they would be interested in selling any items in bulk that haven't sold and the original donors/customers have surrendered, can be a wonderful way! Obviously, garage sales too.

That's great @Six on a Budget , and congratulations on your success. Thanks for pointing out the " ten years later ", because people must accept the fact that it takes time to build a Castle. What I have done to make money from home? Blogging with affiliate marketing is what fascinates me most. Along with publishing articles and eBooks. But must admit that SEO nearly got the better of me. Luckily there's nothing that research and persistence cannot remedy.

I have incorporated a "side hustle" mindset into my every day routine. If I am cleaning out my closet and ready to donate some clothes, I'll first take them to a consignment shop where I can get cash on the spot for them. If I a moving, I'll list my items on Facebook Marketplace before donating them or passing them along to a friend.

If you don't qualify for those positions, I also suggest looking at The Penny Hoarder's work-from-home jobs portal . We post a lot of part-time remote jobs there as well. Good luck on your job hunt!

I feel your pain--I'm on SSDI and SSI as well. I'm fortunate to live in an area that has one of the lowest costs of living in the country--Indianapolis, Indiana. I used to have a lucrative career as a freelance writer for a website--I made about $140 a month. I've found mystery shopping to be a good source of income--I got my start with Field Agent and have branched out. I'm fortunate enough to be able to work part-time in a restaurant, but that incurs the risk of losing SSI.

It's not just about the cash out amount. It's more of it takes for ever to make enough to cash out.

There's a group I've been doing it for and I've been with them for like 7 or more years and it takes forever to get anywhere with them. The amounts never go up either.

I used to do surveys too but they became too time consuming and the amount of points you get doesn't justify the time. But I use Ibotta when shopping and I've made about $250 over a year and a half. I also use Mypoints when shopping on line. Mypoints is great.
