Last week we talked about budgeting and getting $1000 into your emergency fund.
Here are some ideas on how to make a few extra bucks for that to happen:
Get a second job.
Babysit kids inside your home.
Work at a day care.
Sell things you don't need on craigslist or ebay
Have a garage sale.
Make money doing something you really love. (gardening, pet sitting, scrap booking, cooking, crafts, sewing)
Raise car/health/homeowners insurance deductibles and/or search cheaper plans
Plan meals to reduce grocery budget (go meatless some nights)
Stop buying junk food/pre packaged food
Turn your thermostat down a few degrees (we keep ours at 60 most of the time in the winter)
Shut lights off!
Take quicker showers to reduce water bills
Combine errands so you use less gas
Stay home more
Clip coupons, shop at discount stores like Aldi for as much as you can
Sell cars with high balances/payments and drive a cheap car - (take out a small loan if you're upside down)
There are just a few. Get creative!!
