How to make 50$ fast and why you should have your eyes open for this one.
We all have in our life a situation that will force us to be creative and find ways to make this money super fast. You are in a weird situation, your car broke down at the last minute and you look in your bank account and you only have 560$ left and your repair bill is up to 610$ and you have two days before picking up your car, what a luck!
What are the best ways to make it happen super fast.
Selling some Stuffs
One of the best ways to generate some quick cash is by selling your stuffs online. It is not a complicated task,even easier than you may think. You could go to any of the below sites to start your online mini selling store if you may!
- eBay: If you have any clothes, electronics,watches, you are at the right place. One of the best articles to sell on Eaby that should not take to long to be sold is electronics, if you have any Apple product per example this should be gone in a instant. You will have to look around the site, to validate what is the proper price to list your item.List it at a fair price so you could have a quick sale.
- Example: Apple Watch Serie 1 listed at 175$ in general for a fast sale, for you to be listed at 160$ with a tittle looking like this: Apple Watch Serie 1 in excellent condition for only 160$ Today.
- Craiglist: Another big monster in the online field, you could list any items you may have and the good part is: You could list your product and have someone in your city coming to look at your TV and buy it right away. Always be careful when having someone coming over your house to see any items, be neutral… Don’t show your house only the item, if you have a garage tell your potential buyer…”Let me open my garage door the item is there”. You don’t want to have peoples coming to your house when your not around!
- Kijiji: Is another popular site own by ebay but at a lower scale but really good and efficient, you list your article and peoples will then contact you to know if your price is negociable, where to meet etc… Ask those general questions or give directions, so you know you will not lose your time.Are you a serious buyer?
- Contact me in advance to make sure you will be there
- Only accept cash, no paypal or credit union payment
- There is no refund, it is a used item
- Test the item before your purchase so we know we are clear
When those situations occur, we have to act fast and no time to feel sorry for ourself. We just need to focus on the solution so why not work extra hours at your work place, if this is a possible option.When receiving your pay check you could refund-replace the missing money that occur for the extra expense.
You could also look on Craiglist for Gigs asking for manual laybor…Ex: Help someone paint the deck of the house for a fee, or cut the grass or any other manual labor intensive work but again use your own judgment when doing those tasks, you want to make sure you will get paid, this is not a long term solution and this is something you are physicaly capable of doing. No point putting yourself in a bad situation.
Let’s be creative when we are in a bad situation, we have the habit of saying ohhh boy, i don’t have any money left what should i do to generate some money before the end of this week.
Look around your house, to see what you are abble to sell fast. Are you in a situation you could borrow some money at a really low interest rate for a week or two max. Is there any money left in a saving account somewhere, a 401k account or stocks investment… Maybe try the Uber thing for a week and see if this could help in your situation. Always do your due diligence. Offer your professional service online for a fee, never know who will need some help and this is your expertise so why not.
One 50$ at a time.
The moral of the story is: trust yourself more than you believe in yourself! We are more powerful than we think and we are capable of big things but once confronted with the unknown or put in a difficult situtation , our brain goes in a shut down mode instead of going in survival mode and attack the problem. We are not use by nature to be confronted, we have a issue we go to the bank, get a credit, get a loan but never we take advantage of our own capabilities to generate some money on our own.
We are great and powerful, let’s do it…One 50$ at a time.
