Making Money at 40+,

It’s all about turning nothings into somethings, turning trash into cash. Making money at 40+ won’t talk numbers as such, just opportunities. Have a look around yourselves, and see how, either you can be productive, or what you can cash-in. It could be anything from CD’s or DVD’s to furniture, and even clothes. If you’re a heavy eBayer like I am, you’ll be well aware of the stuff people sell on eBay, so ask yourself, can you do the same? Have a look at the things, (clutter, yeah I said it), and see what they are selling for on eBay. That gives you a starting point, and before you know it.

If you own your home, consider renting out your unused space. For example, rent out your garage for storage, rent out a spare room, you can even rent out your driveway or parking space. As a daily user of JustPark, I have to recommend that service highly. The convenience is unmatched.

Again, have a look online as a customer and see what people are charging and then equate that to what you have available, and finally, work out how much of a goldmine you could be sitting on.

There are other things you can do to bring in a little more cash, like switching bank accounts, being a film extra, market research and surveys, it all adds up. You could even do things like gardening, dog walking, pet-sitting, house-cleaning and DIY, things like this aren’t too hard to set up, and you won’t be working too far from home.

If you’re debt-free and disciplined, a cashback credit card is a fantastic way to save money. Spending and saving at the same time – amazing. The best cards offer 5% cashback for the first three months and 1% thereafter. Treat it like a debit card by using it for everyday purchases, but remember to pay the full balance every month by direct debit or you’ll get stung for interest.
