Crazy Couponing Money Challenge — Day 12 Theme– Mystery Shopping

Mystery shopping has been talked about a LOT when talking about making money. Mystery shopping IS a legitimate way to earn money, but it is not as easy as it seems.

Sign up with a separate email address so you can receive all the last minute jobs and not miss them.Also, NEVER pay to sign up with a mystery shopping site. Some companies will ask that you make a purchase and they will reimburse you for it.

When doing mystery shopping, you should be prepared to work! You must complete the task you are assigned fully. When you are done, you have to write up a report and send it to the company. It’s not easy work, but it can be lucrative. Also, you will be an independent contractor, so be prepared to fill out 1099 forms and deal with taxes at the end of the year.

Below is a list of Mystery Shopping companies:

Crazy Couponing Money Challenge — Day 8 theme: Sell your stuff!

Selling your stuff for extra cash may seem like common sense, but do you know how to sell your stuff appropriately?

Sure, yard sales are a good idea if you have a large mish-mash of stuff lying around that you want to get rid of. But yard sales depend on foot traffic and advertising and standing outside all day hoping someone will buy your junk. In the colder months, it’s nearly impossible to have a yard sale.

Craigslist is a great site to sell unwanted items. You just pick the category you want to sell in and make a post! But price your items reasonably. No one wants to pay $400 for a broken iPhone. Look at the prices listed for similar items and price your stuff accordingly. I’ve always had better luck selling on Craigslist when I list my maximum price and write OBO (or best offer). It gives people room to negotiate!

Ebay is a great site for selling electronics! If you have a broken computer or iPhone, see if you can sell it on Ebay for parts!

Sell books to Amazon or to any other buy back programs. Be aware though, books aren’t nearly as popular, therefore you most likely won’t make much. Consider donating them to your local library!

Sell used electronics to Gazelle.

If you are interested in selling baby items, you should check your local neighborhood list serves and Facebook pages. My neighborhood has a classifieds Yahoo Groups page, specifically for locals to buy and sell stuff.  You can also post flyers near Mommy and Me classes and baby clothing stores.

Remember, no one is going to want to buy a broken item (Unless it’s electronics. Many people buy broken electronics, especially if they are current, for parts.) Don’t try to sell every piece of junk that is taking up room in your house.

When all else fails, and you can’t sell an item, consider why it isn’t selling. Is it in good condition? Maybe you should think about donating it! If it’s not great condition? Recycle! It’s good for the environment 🙂
