Growing up it always seemed like there was something you just had to have. Most of the time, Mom or Dad just told you that you didn’t need it or they couldn’t afford it. However, if you wanted it really bad then you did everything you could to get your hands on whatever it was that you wanted. For me, it was a remote control hover craft! I just had to have that thing the minute I laid my eyes on it at Toys R’ Us.
The feeling you have inside that drives you to do “whatever it takes” is remarkable. As a 12 year old boy, I did anything and everything I could to save up the money to buy this remote control hovercraft. After about 4 weeks of doing my brother’s chores and spending hours helping the neighbors clean their yard (they had some dogs that constantly were getting into the trash etc.) I finally had the money!
My point of this story is that when you want or need to make easy money fast there are always methods to getting doing it. In this article you will hear from me as I discuss 5 of the best ways to make money fast and easy in my opinion. These things can be done by almost anyone so keep reading!
1) Rob Peter To Pay Paul
If you have an income already then you’re more than likely spending all or a portion of that money somewhere else. Make a budget and determine what you could live without and cut those expenses. It’s all about priorities. If you are desperate for the money to make a mortgage or car payment then maybe you could cancel your cable T.V. or XM satellite radio service. Making these small adjustments may be difficult at first but are definitely worth it in most situations. Look at where all your money is going and see if you can cut back anywhere.
2) Get Some Sleep
When I was in college a few of my buddies made some serious cash doing a sleep study program. Initially, it was hard to find a research company in our area but once they did it was pretty simple and fast. Basically, the way it works is you fill out a bunch of paperwork and then go into a doctor’s office and sleep. They will hook up some wires and monitor your brain activity and breathing etc. but it’s all harmless research. Normally they will ask you to come back for a second session a day or two later. In most cases they pay more if you come back and second or third time. You can expect to spend about 1 hour filling out paperwork and 6-8 hours of sleeping per day. In 2-3 days you could have up to $800 in your pocket!
3) Get Rid of Stuff
Most people have a house or garage full of crap that they don’t use anymore. The internet is a great tool to use to sell all of this unwanted stuff. This is one of the quickest ways to make money fast and easy. I would suggest going through your house and garage and making a pile of things you no longer want or need. Keep in mind that you are trying to sell these things so don’t pile up a bunch of junk that no one would want. Everyone has at least $500 worth of things in their house they could part with. Take pictures with your cell phone or camera and post them to craigslist. If you don’t know how to use craigslist just go to their website and there is a help section. The main things to remember are to put pictures of your items you are selling and keep your posting description simple. Do not write 3 paragraphs about your pool table or 42″ big screen. Pictures and a small description work the best. If you feel comfortable put a call back number in the post. A phone number will generate the best results.
4) Make a Donation
Guys know what I mean when I say donation. I’m referring to a sperm bank facility. This may be humiliating for most guys but it pays well. Ladies can ask their husbands or boyfriends to do this for them. Research where your local sperm bank donation facility is and call ahead to make sure they are accepting donors. This is for sure one of the best ways to make money fast and easy. You just don’t want to make it a habit!
5) Get To Work
This may sound stupid but getting a job may just do the trick. If you don’t have a job, go get one. If you have one go get another one! There is nothing wrong with working. My suggestion to you is to think about what skills you have and then think about where you could use those skills. Grocery stores are always looking for people and they have several positions that you can choose from. The pay may not be the greatest but if it’s a second job it could be the difference between you being able to pay for your mortgage or not. Just go do it and have fun. Working a second job can be temporary. Remember my remote control hovercraft story. As soon as I got that thing I stopped doing my brothers chores and helping the neighbors.
If you need to make money fast and easy then determine how much you need and go out and make it. Most of the process is mental but it does require physical effort. Once you get a game plan just go implement it. Hopefully these 5 things will help you.
