Strapped For Cash? Quick And Easy Ways To Make Some Extra Money

cash strapping
We've all been there. Everything seems fine, and suddenly you find yourself in urgent need of some extra money. Whether you're dealing with car troubles, health problems or anything else, it can be easy for money problems to appear out of nowhere. It can be pretty scary, especially when you find yourself behind on mortgage or rent payments or unable to meet the day to day cost of living. But don't worry, because there are more ways to earn some extra money than you might think. And a lot of them are surprisingly quick and easy.

1. Sell your stuff

Now don't worry. No one's going to tell you to sell all your most prized possessions. But let's face it, we've all got plenty of things cluttering up our homes that we neither need nor use. Old CDs you never listen to or clothes you never wear. Getting onto sites like eBay to sell things that you no longer need can be a great way to put some extra cash in your back pocket.

2. Sell your home

This one is a little more drastic but can be an excellent way to get you back into the black, financially. Have you ever thought, I need to sell my house fast, but haven't been able to find a buyer or assumed that the time and costs would be too much to deal with? There are plenty of services out there that allow you to sell your house surprisingly quickly.

3. Make money online

There are a lot of apps available now that allow you to do small jobs for extra cash. Now you're probably not going to make enormous amounts of money from these jobs, but they are perfect for adding some extra padding to your wallet. The jobs you'll be doing are probably going to be pretty simple and won't eat up massive amounts of your time either.

4. Donate plasma

This one often makes people feel a bit uncomfortable, but it really can help provide you with a decent amount of money. Plus it's really not as scary as it sounds! When you donate plasma, your blood is drawn, the plasma is removed and then the red blood cells are returned to your body. You usually can't technically sell your plasma, but you are often compensated for your time with cash or a pre- gift card.

5. Borrowing money

Many people would consider themselves too proud to ask for money, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with needing a little help. You can reach out to friends and family for financial support. It's always a good idea to keep a record of exactly what they've given you so that you can pay them back in full when you're back on your feet. There are also the options of a payday loan but be careful, the interest rates on these are very high. This can put you in a difficult position if you're not able to repay the loan in time.
