What Would it be Like to Have Money Leftover at the end of the Month?



Are you like me and the money runs out before pay day?  It seems that there’s just never enough money. Somehow you find a way to pay thebills but some extra cash each month would help so much! I’ve been looking at different ways to make some extra income but nothing seems to be working.  Here are a few things that I’ve tried:

  •  I started selling Stella & Dot jewelry.  I figured since I love the latest fashion, especially jewelry that this would be the perfect thing for me.  It turns out; I’m not a very good salesperson.  I’m just not aggressive enough.  I found that after I had ‘trunk shows’ for all my family and friends, I was done.


  • I’ve tried to sell various things on eBay but nothing specific.  Just odd things here and there.  Does anyone have any tips or good experiences they’ve had with selling on eBay?


  • I signed up on Freelancer.com.  I thought this was another sure thing as I had a lot of experience in the various categories they had for job postings.  I’m sure that some people out there have had good experiences with this website, or it wouldn’t be running anyone, but I tried five different jobs and was scammed every time.  I didn’t get paid for any of them which was disappointing as I put a lot of time in effort into the work.


  • One sure thing to make money on is doing surveys.  There are so many different survey websites out now.  The problem I found with this is that it’s quite time consuming for what you get in return. I understand that it’s not hard work or anything though.  A few years ago when survey website weren’t as common, it seemed that most of them rewarded you with money.  Now, a lot is different types of merchandise that either you would never use or it would take years and years to accumulate enough points.


  • To save money, I’m constantly checking flyers, budgeting, ordering and using coupons, and all that jazz but this also can be very time consuming and with having a day job, I find that my the time I get home at night from work, all of these opportunities have already been requested.


  • I know what some of you are probably thinking that the answer is right in front of me and go get a job.  I do have a full-time day job but the thought of having to leave work to go to another part-time job brings me back to my college days which I don’t want to do again.

I’m really curious to hear your thoughts and suggestions on ways that you’ve been able to make some extra income or have heard of ways where others have been successful.

About Dino
There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
