That’s a great question.
They're several ways you can get some extra cash for your pocket. I bought a soda machine for about $700. Truck drivers are coming in and out frequently so I decided to just get it installed back there. I buy my sodas at a local Wal-Mart and sell the sodas for 75 cents. It’s all profit now; I've had the coke machine for a while. Now, I know you all may not have a warehouse where truck drivers are coming in and out but you don't necessarily need one to get a nice profit from a soda machine. Ask relatives or friends who have a business or anywhere where a lot of people tend to pass by. Oh and one other thing, make sure you get a multiple soda machine. One that accepts coins and dollar bills.
Great suggestion Alex! For a company I worked for I sold sodas, juice, water, energy drinks, candy bars, gum, and other various snacks. I made almost as much at the actual job as the drinks/snacks at one point! Walmart is a good start. Does your family have a Sam's Club or Cotsco membership? Might be cheaper to buy in bulk.
Another great way to get some extra money would be to collect cans. I collect cans when I have family or friends over at the house. Everyone knows now that the cans are important to me so no one throws them away lol! I also save the cans I profit from my soda machine. I have a separate dumpster where all cans are thrown. I’m not saying you'll end up with $100 in your pocket but I do get around $13 for 2 small bags. That’s a free haircut!
That’s a great idea to generate a little extra cash! Plus it helps with the environment
Last but not least, and personally my favorite, CRAIGSLIST. If you have old stuff that you have no use for, check out your local listings and post your items. That is a great way to sell any old stuff you have just laying around in your home. "BARTERING" is also a nice option to look at. And you can also find that on Craiglist.
Hope my ideas help!
Craigslist is a good idea. Or eBay as well. Thanks for sharing!
