Set Up an eBay Store

If you have a lot of junk in your home, now is the time to start selling it. You will be surprised about the amount that people will pay for some of your items. Take some time to look through everything that you have, including old clothes and vintage ornaments. EBay and other online sites are a great way to get rid of your items and there is a lot of protection through the sites against fake bidders.

Take your time to build up a reputation first with the smaller and cheaper items and then start looking at your larger ones. As you build up a positive reputation, people are more likely to want to buy from you because they can trust you to send the items. You will then be able to set up a shop and then start selling much more.

Once you are out of the items in your home then you will need to start looking at buying items to sell. Remember to do your research into the items for the extra income ideas to work. Take your time to buy low to be able to sell higher – there are chances that you will get 100 percent more on items, if not more.

Become a Packer

While it may not be fun, this is one of the extra income ideas that really does work. You can start packing items that are shipped to you and then you ship them off. The benefit of this is that you get paid for the work that you do and the work is done through trusted companies. However, there are some scams out there so you will need to do your research into the companies first.

This will not be life fulfilling work but it will be extra income, which is something that you are after now. This is a great way to clear off your debt and start to live afresh.

Data Entry for Extra Money

When it comes to extra income ideas, one of the best and most common is data entry. Like being a packer, this is not the most exciting job that you will ever do but it is extra money and it will help to pay off the debts. You can do this in your own time and will also be able to do it as a full time job if you are currently unemployed.

There are a variety of options out there when it comes to extra income ideas and it all depends on what you want to do. You may be able to look into your hobbies and start doing that for money or you may want to keep your hobbies separate. Take some time and look through all of your options to help clear your debts.
