3 Super Simple Ways to Make Money at Home

I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

This article isn’t going to give you a get rich quick scheme or a work from home salary. However, if you’re interested in simple ways to make money at home without having to do much of anything, you are in the right spot.

1. Poshmark

Once upon a time, I worked in an “upscale-resale” store. We would buy clothes/shoes/accessories/designer handbags from folks and then resell them. They would get about 1/3 to 1/4 of what we priced it at.
Poshmark is so much better and easier than going to a resale or consignment store. The only drawback is that you may have to wait a few days for your items to sell in order to get paid.

Another option for selling clothes is ThredUp. I haven’t personally had much luck with them, but I know people who have!

To date, I’ve made roughly $256 on Poshmark.

I’ve sold jewelry, clothes, shoes, men’s clothes & shoes, as well as toddler clothes.

Making a little extra cash + getting rid of things we aren’t wearing = win-win! 

All you have to do is download the Poshmark app, create your account (free), upload photos of items you want to sell, and set your price. Once it sells Poshmark will email you your shipping label. Package up your item(s), tape on your label, and stick it in your mailbox for your Postman/woman to pick up! Easy peasy. This is definitely the easiest way I’ve found to make money at home.

2. Sell household items you aren’t using. 

We’ve been doing this to declutter, and have been able to make around $500.

If it’s something you aren’t using daily and it isn’t a family heirloom, why keep it around? We have sold in our community Facebook sale groups, but I’ve also had great results from eBay.

3. Sell Old Electronics on Gazelle

If you have old electronics lying around, like cell phones or laptops, try selling them on Gazelle. We sold one of my husband’s older iPhones on Gazelle and got around $70 back. (Of course, that’s nowhere near what you’d pay for an iPhone but we’d rather have the $70 then an old phone taking up room in the junk drawer.) I’ve also heard great things about Swappa!

I know, I know. No groundbreaking answers to getting rich overnight. Sorry, Charlie!

Let’s be honest, we all probably have too many clothes and clutter filling our homes. You might as well turn that clutter into cash.
