Do you stay close to a beach? Collect sea glass or driftwood and sell it just as is, or make some things with the sea glass or driftwood pieces and sell those. We do this for some extra income.
If you don’t stay close to a beach, but have a garden or can visit the gardens of friends – collect sticks, tree bark, greenery, plants, flowers, dry flower seeds or plant seeds and make those work for you – make things and sell them, or plant seeds in just about any container and once you have some seedlings, sell those.
Collect discarded items (like tin cans or beer bottles), turn them into something crafty, and sell them.
Can you cook and bake? Start with just the ingredients you already have in the house.
You can do some things that others can’t. Yes you can! Some kids can’t do what you can do, right? Offer lessons.
Look after houses or pets while people are away.
Upcycle things already in the house – make something and sell it.
Make money online from blogging or from writing online – even on other sites, or on a free Blogger (blogspot.com) blog – learn a little more about blogging and SEO first, perhaps.
If you do need a little income to get started on something – like you want your own site rather than a free site, or you want to sell some things you’ve made at a flea market or craft market but don’t have the stall fee money or the petrol (gas) money for the car to get there – go through your house and see what you don’t need anymore – have a garage sale or advertise your things for free in the local paper that has a free ads section once a week, or advertise the things for sale online on a popular free classifieds site or popular free advertising site. Then use the money you make from the sales of your items for something that will ultimately make you more money.
