Would you like a little boost in your monthly income but feel that you don’t have the chance to because of work, family or other commitments? Well, there are ways to make money without you even having to lift a finger (well, you might have to lift at least one), meaning that they can be easily worked around your other commitments. A few ways to make money relatively easily, and legally, can be found below.
And what better, and easier, place to start in than your own home? You probably have the capabilities to make extra wonga right under your nose as there are always money making methods in your home, one of which includes finding and selling old items that you no longer need or have any particular attachment to, particularly items like jewellery as they always have been and always will be highly sought after. But you don’t just have to sell your jewellery (if you can’t bare to part yourself from it) as there are a call for a whole host of second hand items and contraptions in the modern day. And the best thing of all is that, in this day and age, you don’t necessarily have to traipse down to your local pawn broker to sell your jewellery or get up at the crack of dawn to sell your worldly belongings at a car boot or yard sale: you can sell (and buy, for that matter) everything you want to via the online world of the Internet. By using sites such as Ebay, Amazon, Craigslist or Gumtree you are able to access the world’s biggest, most active and most frequently used marketplaces by merely clicking a few buttons. Building an online marketplace has never been easier as well, so what’s stopping you from hosting your very own online junk sale in your very own safe and secure place?
But why limit yourself to making money from the things only in your home: why not make money off of investments made on other ones? By this, it is meant that you can become a landlord, but not a landlord in the traditional sense. In recent years there has been a rise in what is known as the part time landlord; basically the name ‘part time landlord’ speaks for itself: it is when a property owner takes to letting out their premises, or buying-to-let another premises, on the side to make a bit of extra income. Unlike the traditional role of being a landlord, those that do it part time don’t have to be bogged down with too much work and don’t have to submit themselves to extensive workloads: they merely buy a property to let (if they don’t already have one to do so); make sure it meets the standards demanded when it comes to letting; find an individual, a family or a party to rent it; hand over the keys to them; and check back everything now and again to make sure everything is as it should be. All the while, as soon as those keys are handed over to the renters, the part time landlord fills their pockets with a bit of extra cash without making the venture a full-time plight; sounds good, doesn’t it? Similarly, if you have a motorhome then why not allow it to be up for and made available for motorhome rental? By renting out of any sort of motorhome, campervan, caravan or holiday home that you own you are basically making use of the space that you pay for even when you are not physically using the space, thus meaning that the investment of taking such a venture isn’t singled only to you making use of it yourself as it also extends itself to the boosting of your profits even when you don’t use it. Furthermore, the act of renting out a motorhome, or that of the like, is even easier than being a part time landlord as the sheer size of these types of homes means that less problems are likely to occur within them which means you won’t be called out to make fixes, or spend money on fixes, quite as often.
However, if selling your worldly belongings or renting out doesn’t take your fancy then fear not as there are a whole host of other ways to make money without even trying. You could do so, for instance, by buying things that you know are going to rise in price. An example of such a venture can be found in the man that made thousands just from buying Lego! If you have a working knowledge of a certain item and its financial trends, or are willing to do homework on the subject, then why not put your money making efforts to the test in this sort of manner?
