7 Ways For Job Seekers To Pick Up Extra Cash This Holiday Season
Most people could use some extra cash during the holidays, and if you're a job seeker, you may find yourself stressed about the prospect of holiday expenses. Here are some ways to get some cash into your pocket quickly.
Sell T-Shirts Online
If you have basic graphic design skills (or even if you don't), you can make quick cash selling t-shirts and other print items on platforms like Teespring. Upload a design or use their built-in design tool to create simple text t-shirts.
Once you have a sale, have it printed. You'll receive your cash via Paypal within a few days.
Holiday Helper for Hire
Put a post in Facebook groups or Craigslist offering your services as a "holiday helper for hire." Most people need extra help during the holidays, whether it's wrapping gifts, decorating their homes, cleaning their houses for the holidays, or babysitting children so the parents can shop.
Another service you can offer is personal gift shopping. People tend to have a long list of people to buy for, but don't always have ideas about what to buy. If you're savvy, you can take their list and come back with gifts for all of the extended family members. Hint: everyone loves gift cards.
Re-sell Items on eBay or Etsy
It will take you a few hours to set up a profile, but if you have even a little cash, you can go to thrift stores and find vintage items to sell on Etsy or eBay. Hot items include silver trays and pitchers and vintage collectibles. You get the cash as soon as the sale is made.
