How to Earn Extra Money before the Holidays
- Sell Homemade Arts and Crafts
If you have a knack for arts and crafts, now is the perfect time to earn something out of your work. Say you’re a homemade crafter and you have accumulated some of your work within the past year, you can sell them now. The holiday season is the time when people are in the market for unique crafts for gifts. Holiday decors are especially in demand during this time so go and create holiday-themed crafts, sell them to people in your neighborhood or online, and earn extra cash.
- Offer to Decorate Houses for Upcoming Christmas
After selling your Christmas décor crafts, you can offer your assistance to help decorate other people’s houses if you are confident in your decorating skills. It is popular today – people hire decorators for the holidays – not only because most people don’t have time but also because they want a better, more professional job. To persuade your potential clients to hire you, make sure to prepare a stellar portfolio of your decorating work.
- Sell Un-Needed Gold or Silver to Nearest Local Specialty Shop
Sometimes, there is money lying around your house and you have no idea. If you look around, you can surely find something useful you can sell for cash to specialty shops or through the garage sale. One of the easiest items you can sell for cash is un-needed gold or silver. If you have gold or silver jewelry in your jewelry box you don’t need, go to the nearest specialty shop and exchange it for cash.
