75+ Ways To Make Extra Money

Extra MoneyHere on Making Sense of Cents, I talk a lot about making extra money. I do this because I truly believe that making extra money can change a person’s life.

After all, making extra money changed my life.

Around five years ago, I was fresh out of college and stressing out about my student loans. I was also not too happy about how much money I was spending and I was not too happy about how much money I was not saving.

Then, a few years ago everything changed when I learned all about side jobs and the different things a person can do to make extra money.

I have taken part in many different ways to make extra money and you can read about some of them in my post 10 Ways I’ve Made Extra Money.

Making extra money can change your life in ways such as:

  • It may help you pay off your debt;
  • It may help you save for things such as a vacation;
  • It may help you stop living paycheck to paycheck;
  • It may help you reach retirement sooner;
  • It may help you not feel as stuck at your job;
  • It may help you to become more diversified.

Whether you have just one free hour each day or if you are willing to work 40 to 50 hours a week on top of your full-time job, there are many options for you.

Below are 77 different ways to make extra money. [Read more…]

How to Turn Your Side Job into Your Main Job #FiverrFreelance

How to Turn Your Side Job into Your Main Job #FiverrFreelance Hello! If you are new here, I recommend you read my latest income report – $32,474 in April – My Monthly Online Income Report.

In October of 2013, I happily started freelancing full-time.

Technically, I have been freelancing full-time for several years, but it wasn’t until October of 2013 that I left the full-time day job I was juggling as well.

Turning my side jobs into my main job was hard work though.

I look back and I still cannot believe that I gathered the courage to do it. However, life is incredibly better so I am glad I made the preparations that I did because I was able to transition into full-time freelancing rather smoothly.

Below are my tips so that you can do the same. [Read more…]

A Complete Guide To Renting A Room For Extra Money

Renting Out A Room In Your House For Extra MoneyIn one week, my sister will be moving back in with us.

She’s joining us in Colorado so that she can do a little more traveling while having a safe place to store her stuff. She won’t be with us full-time, as she mainly plans on using our home as a home base so that she can travel more. However, she will be with us some of the time and she will be paying rent for when she is actually with us.

I’m excited to have her move back in. We’ve missed her, it will be nice to have our dog sitter back (I’m not going to lie, this will be amazing), and the little extra money will be nice.

While renting a room in your house most likely will not make you rich, it may earn you a good amount of side income. I know of a few people who rent out many rooms in their home and have been able to pay off their home completely due to this. [Read more…]

Beginner’s Guide To Earning Passive Income

What Is Passive Income 5 Passive Income IdeasPassive income has been an interest of mine for the past few years. However, up until recently, I never really did anything about this goal.

Dreaming is nice, but nothing happens unless you actually start making some changes. And, that is just what I plan on doing over the next few years.

Currently, passive income is a big interest of mine because I want to continue to bring in an income while being able to focus on other goals of mine (which may not generate income now or ever). I also want to diversify my income streams so that I am not too reliant on one area.

This way I can focus on what I want to do while not having to worry about how much money I am bringing in.

Below are different passive income-related questions you may be wondering. We will discuss what passive income is, the positives of earning passive income, passive income ideas, and the hard work that goes along with it.

4 Reasons To Make Extra Money – It Changed My Life And It Can Change Yours Too!

4 Reasons To Make Extra MoneyHere on Making Sense of Cents, we talk a lot about making extra money.

While I am all about a person cutting their expenses (this is one of our main goals this year), there is a lot to be said about using your extra time to make extra money.

Due to my past side hustles (most of which now comprise my full-time business), I was able to pay off my student loans completely, travel, quit my job, start my own business, and more.

Side hustles have completely changed my life for the better, and this is why I think more people need to look into making extra money on their own.

Even if you think you don’t have enough time to make extra money, I’m sure you have at least a few hours each week. Dedicating something as little as a few hours each week can still mean enough time to make extra money each week.

If you are wondering what you can do to make extra money, check out the related posts below:
