Re: Work from home,extra income

Hi @Chuck , Pleasure making your acquaintance, and thanks for reaching out. Let's first look at the "tools" you have to work with. Because I have been working my way through the options (swamp), of making money online since 2012. And I must admit, the real pitfall is that not everything works for everyone. It is of utter importance you first find what works for you. Do you have some writing skill? What is your level of Computer skill? Online is the perfect place to turn your skill...

Hi Chuck! My suggestion is not so much a part time job as it is an easy way to bring in extra cash, but apps like OfferUp and LetGo help you sell used items of furniture, collectibles, etc. If you are on Facebook, Facebook Marketplace is a similar venue. Hope this helps!

Hi Chuck, I suggest looking into My Employment Options, a partner of the Ticket to Work government program that assists with employment opportunities for those on SSI/SSDI. They have a specific section for work-from-home jobs: https://www.myemploymentoption...inimum-requirements/ . 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!

Thanks Adam! Long story short I had a baby->moved->no longer had a 9-5->wanted to earn more money->found VIPKID through The Penny Hoarder! I heard good things about the company and loved the idea of work from home before my baby woke up. I'm almost a year in and I'm still loving it every day!

30 Ways to Earn Money - TPH Article

For those who came from the Facebook group, you may remember I was interviewed to be featured in an article by The Penny Hoarder about ways I have earned money from home. Unfortunately they weren’t able to link my website in the article, so if you want to contact me, it should be below my signature at the end of this post. I hope you guys check it out! It’s very well written and has many great ideas on how average (and unique) people can earn money from home. Here is the link to the article...

Re: Selling mid-grade jewelry

Moore Income ·
I don't have any experience selling jewelry but I do sell on several marketplaces that I would recommend. eBay is always a great go-to marketplace as there are quite a few people who buy on the platform and you have a greater chance of selling used items. Just make sure you describe the items condition correctly and provide lots of pictures. Mercari is an app that makes selling items such as jewelry fairly simple. Bonanza , is a site that caters more to that niche, I am just not sure how...

Sounds like you are doing a great job! I don't sell muchmuch clot but I have personally sold things on both eBay and Mercari. eBay is great because they have such a huge audience, but it does take a bit of a learning curve and the fees can be a lot. Mercari was a great place to sell until they suspended my account randomly will no explanation. I tried to get them to unsuspend me but they never would.

I have sold some on Mercari. I like Poshmark a little better and maybe because I’ve used it. I like that I don’t have to deal with the shipping cost part. Since I first posted, my sales are up to $525. $260 is from the box I bought for $300. I still have a few high priced items from my Amazon returns box and still am on track to at least triple my money.

I sold on eBay for year, and then the fees finally got me. I had to stop. I still have half a room of inventory here and then some. I've been given several different sites to sell these things on, but I've heard from some friends of several new sites. We thought of selling them through a fund-raiser for my sister for her bills in her fight against breast cancer. Her daughter knows many wealthy clients in their area, and they've said that some of the items I have they are looking for. Always...

That sounds like a winner to me! My wife and I are going to start going to the Goodwill Stores around here again and picking some things up and selling them. We've done that with flea markets, garage sales. We used to ship a lot and had the mailing program on our computer to print out not only invoices for the items, but also the postage, etc. It would also divide all the expenses into the right categories. My wife wants to make an extra $1,500 a month. I think that's possible. You've got...

Bonnie, you might be able to get free help from friends or family if you have any in the area. We have done this on several occasions in the past. Don't limit yourself to thinking all people would want to be paid. Many WANT to see you succeed in anything and everything you do.

I would check out WritersMarket.com as it covers this issue admirably. It also has leads on poetry contests and publishers. Checking the 2019 edition out at the library is free, but getting the leads on who is buying what and when has a small fee that you can easily recoup by writing.

Sounds like your husband has a great way to earn some extra money. I have written a few poems here and there in my life but have never thought about selling poems. As far as the pricing goes, it is going to depend on who you market to. Not everyone I know would be willing to pay for a poem but if you find the right market, you will be able to adjust your prices accordingly. Like I said, I am not experienced in writing poems, but when it comes to writing or providing any creative service, one...

I got branding stuff (stickers with logo) etc from Vistaprint. You can find cheaper ones out there it just depends on how much you are going to print.

I do food delivery on the side. I have recently started using an app called Everlance to track mileage.

For me, since I drive for multiple different companies, this is really helpful to be able to see how much money I am actually making from each company in relation to the money I spend on gas, etc. For...

I signed up for My Points a long time ago but then I must have forgot about it because I just checked back and apparently I didn't even confirm my email address to activate my account.

Because you mentioned this I went ahead and signed up again to try it out and see if it is worthwhile.

I use both Swagbucks and MyPoints. I like both of them and they are fairly easy to use. Swagbucks has more offers and each swagbuck is equal to a penny when you cash out. MyPoints payout is different as it is 3970 points for a $25 Paypal deposit so it is a bit deceptive when you are earning points until you calculate that each point with MyPoints is $.006.

I saw that you asked if anyone has used My Points. I have been a member for 20 years. For the first ten years I was more active. I earned gift cards for family members and also used gift cards to get fertilizer for my garden. I haven't used My Points as much in the last ten years. They have videos to watch and surveys to take and it really fun to watch your points grow. You can even donate points to different charities. I really have enjoyed using My Points over the years.
