Earn More, Shop Smart
Whenever a financial guru is asked about how someone can get out of debt, or alter a stressful financial situation, the advice is always twofold: earn more, live frugal.
When it comes to the holiday season, frugal isn’t something you normally do – it’s a time of splurging in most cases. So you have to learn to shop smart for the things that you need.
How can you shop smart for the holidays and save money in the process?
* Buy store brands, not name brands
* Look for coupons and sales on food, electronics, and more
* Find extra deals like cash back incentives and free shipping
* Shop on specific big sale days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday
All of those tips are great in helping you save money, but it’s also important to note that if the holidays are causing a cash crunch for you, it might be time to start earning more so that you’re not panicked at a time when you should be relaxed and enjoying your family.
Is it time to ask your boss for a raise? The holidays might be a good time to do this. Some companies give bonuses around Christmastime, but others just give a turkey – or worse, nothing!
There’s another option for you – getting a supplemental job that provides more income for you quickly. Some people use the offline route to achieve this goal, but working in retail offline around the holidays can be physically and mentally exhausting.
Online, you have ample opportunity to earn money. There are four specific job paths you can pursue outlined in a course called Extra Holiday Cash. You can pick one or more to follow, but each one explains what the job is, how fast the pay is, and tips on taking it from part time dabbling to fulltime income if you want.
This isn’t the often-heard-about scam business online. There is no spamming or tricking people. You’ll just be creating content, working on tasks for others, or making recommendations based on some research you do online. It’s fast, it’s easy – and anyone can do it!
