Keep your changeI know this sounds like common sense, but whoever invented the piggy bank is a true genius. Putting money in a container and not touching it is a great way to save for something. You need an extra $100 bucks for an event next month? Start putting away your spare change now and by the time that day arrives, you’ll be ready to go. The best part is, you find the money without having to budget it.2. Take some surveysI know we’ve all probably heard this idea before, but most of us have never done it. Taking surveys online or down at the mall may not seem like the best way to spend an hour or two, but it can put a few extra bucks in your pocket. Check out http://www.makemoneytakingsurveys.com/ to find some easy ways to make $25-$50 bucks a day.3. Sell some stuffPeople love yard sales. It’s a great way to get something you need at a great price. That being said, you probably won’t get rich from having one, but you can definitely make $50-$100, depending on what you’re ready and willing to sell. Willing to part with something expensive? Put it on Craig’s List and see what happens.4. Mow some grassIf you have neighbors that don’t enjoy doing yard work, this one could really pay off. All you need is a push mower and some gas. Spend part of your Saturday mowing lawns and you could easily raise an extra hundred bucks every weekend. Nobody likes getting out in the heat of the summer, so take advantage.5.
