Here’s a great article about how to make money in your free time. I’ve tried nearly all of these myself and while some certainly work better than others, the idea is that you’re not limited to only one source of income and you get to dictate the amount of time you’re willing to put in.

Nobody likes an inbox full of junk mail. In fact, many of us have a second email account just for junk mail so it doesn’t clutter up our personal inbox (you do don’t you?). But sometimes junk mail isn’t so junky. It’s usually where all the restaurant coupons and fun Groupon adventures wind up that you forget about until they expire. But not all junk mail is created equal, in fact, mine just bought me lunch.
I’m not a big fan of the stock market but I do enjoy buying goods and reselling them for a profit. This can be done fairly easily with a bit of research and there usually isn’t much risk involved. This 2013 holiday season I enjoyed a nice Christmas bonus compliments of Sony and Microsoft when they released their new PS4 and XBOX One game consoles. By anticipating a large demand I was able to buy low and sell high which is usually how you want to do it. While these opportunities don’t come often, they usually carry big rewards.
Back in 2009, I was browsing through some classified ads and found one that stood out. It wasn’t something I had expected to see and it was definitely out-of-place, but I gave it a quick glance and quickly realized that a great opportunity was staring me in the eyes. Sometimes the best deals come when you aren’t looking for them, and such was the case in what has been the best money-making opportunity I’ve come across so far.
Sometimes the best deals are the ones you weren’t even looking for. These are also the most difficult to justify no matter how good. The fact is, we don’t want to buy something we don’t need, but being frugal isn’t just about saving money, It’s also about being able to recognize when a good deal is worth looking at just because it’s a good deal. When a deal is good enough, there will be plenty of opportunities to turn that into actual savings at some point down the road and that’s why it’s important to invest in your future.
