Now that Christmas season is upon us, I’m sure a lot of mothers, those who have full time day jobs and those who stay at home to care for the kids, are in the look out for prospective income generating activities. Searching not only to help augment the family income, but also to have something extra to spend during the holidays, may that be to buy the kids some nice presents or to save some money to spend for a great holiday vacation with the entire family in the future.
It does not really take rocket science to think of ways on how you can earn a little extra this Christmas, and no, you don’t have to take on any automotive finance jobs, either! Simply play on your strengths and lean on your favorites and interests and you will be sure to earn those extra moolahs just in time to catch up on your last minute holiday shopping.
Here are a few suggestions:
- Bake some homemade goodies. If you are a mommy who loves to cook, why not use your kitchen prowess to make some brownies or cakes and sell it to your friends and neighbors. You can also give these goodies as Christmas presents to your family and friends for the holidays. Who knows, this might be the start of something big for you!
- Garage sale. Why not set up some tables in your yard and sell items that you no longer use? A surefire way to earn a little minus the capital. You can sell used clothes and bags, especially those that do not fit or not your type anymore. You can also sell used baby items and baby toys that are no longer appropriate for your little one. This way you can find a much better use for your old stuff instead of leaving to gather dust in your cabinets.
- Offer gift-wrapping services. If you are a creative mom and good in crafts, you can probably offer gift-wrapping services to your family and friends who are way too busy and do not have enough time to wrap all their Christmas presents. You can vary your charge depending on the type of wrappings a person might want.
These are just some of the things you can do to earn extra money. As I have said above, if your “little business” greatly help other people and they are looking for more, then this might be the ticket to your new career.
Overall, you need to be creative and focused on what you really wanna do, because, if you love doing it, then sooner or later, rewards are not far behind 🙂
