Top 4 Holiday Job Ideas
Have you been sitting there planning your holiday season and realizing that your current income isn’t going to be enough to cover your expenses? Instead of taking out a quick cash loan from one of those paystub lenders who rip you off with interest fees, consider one of these options instead.
#1 – Securing a local retail job
This one is the most popular (and overused) option you could pursue. The economy is flooded each year with everyone from teens to retired senior citizens clamoring for a seasonal retail job.
Opportunities involve working as a clerk, working in the gift wrapping department, delivering packages, serving people in restaurants, and more. The opportunities are there, but will you be the one chosen – and if so, will you be able to handle the extra hours on top of your already busy life?
#2 – Starting a service business offline for seasonal opportunities
There are many homeowners who like to hire a handyman (or woman) at this time of year. Personal shoppers see an increase in demand – as do pet sitters, house sitters, and more.
You could create a business hanging Christmas lights for people who can’t (or don’t want to) do it. You could also offer to set up their outdoor lawn dÈcor. People pay top dollar for this service, and all you need is time and a little elbow grease.
#3 – Holding a garage sale – on or offline
Craigslist and eBay are brimming with items to sell (and buyers to snap them up) at this time of the year. Now is the time to empty out your closets (did you know that jeans sell very quickly on eBay?).
Check out what’s selling and then declutter your house for some extra holiday cash for items you sell online. You can also take the traditional route is selling online makes you nervous – just schedule your day, advertise it, and stay outside greeting your walk-up customers!
#4 – Working as an online entrepreneur for some quick cash
You’re already online reading this article – why not turn your Internet time into some cold, hard cash for the holidays? It’s very easy! There’s a course called Extra Holiday Cash that teaches you four different methods you can choose from. You can try one – or all – and do it for as little or as long as you need to for the financial peace of mind you’re after.
