We will be talking about doing odd jobs around the house, Talking to your boss for ideas, working from home, and like I said I will give you internet sites with legit sites where you can check for legit jobs.
So let’s jump into our first category of odd jobs that can be found around the house.
Odd Jobs Around The House
There are many different kinds of ways you can earn money just around the house.
Let me give you a brief list here and then I will go into detail below
- Garage Sale
#1 Dog-sitting- Your not going to become rich doing this, but if you love animals then this is a good choice for you. Just put the word out to your neighbors and you can become the neighborhood dog walker. Not only will the seniors thank you but the people who are busy working will also thank you. Many just don’t have the time with their work to give their animals proper time outdoors, so you are helping both the owners and the animals.
You can also register with local agencies as professional dog walkers and caretakers. This could bring in even more money because your licensed and registered.
#2 Babysitting- I personally did this one when I was younger to help myself earn extra spending money. You can do this in many ways.
One way, would be to just stay within your local neighborhood. This again would be done thought word of mouth. Once you get a good reference from a person then that gets passed around from neighbor to neighbor. Soon you will start getting requests for places outside of your neighborhood.
The second opinion, would be to branch out of your neighborhood with referrals from other people. Of course, this would require transportation of some kind.
The third opinion, is to advertise on the internet with a reputable company such as care.com which is available in many countries worldwide. They are free to join plus they do have an internet site that can be checked out.
#3 Garage Sales- Now this is something that I will do at least 2 times a year. I have my fall cleaning and my spring cleaning. Since, my place is small I have all my out-of-date clothes in boxes. So in the fall I will switch out my summer clothes for my winter clothes. Since, I live in Texas where the weather changes on a dime I always have some long sleeve shirt out all year. My point being, at this time I also decide what clothes don’t fit, I don’t like, I can sell for a reason at a garage sale. Also, at this time I will go though cabinets, cupboards, closets, and the entire place. Since, I do this so often I’m having to look at the next opinion.
#4 eBay- This is how I get some of my extra spending. By selling my gently used belongings on eBay from my fall and spring cleanings. Sometimes I have kept some stuff back to give as reuse as DIY Christmas presents. You can make some pretty good money doing this.
I have known people that can make quite a bit, almost a full time income on this alone.
Next, our topic to discuss will have to do with taking to your boss. They might have ideas about where you can find legit jobs.
Talk To Your Boss
One idea is to talk to your boss to see if your company already has an existing telecommuting programming. When you talk to your boss be sure to mention all the different ways that this would benefit the company. Telecommuting or working from home or remote work all mean about the same thing. Basically, you would be working away from the office, either on a part-time basis or full time.

Start Your Own Business
Working from home can have advantages and challenges as you will read in detail in those articles.
One good and safe opinion I would highly recommend is Wealthy Affiliate. I have written an article about that titled Costly and Free/Types Of Affiliate Programs. Here is a wonderful affiliate program that is free to join. Once you join just follow the training step by step, it will show you so much. For instance, you will learn all about creating a website so this can be ranked on the internet. The nice thing about this program is that they don’t expect you to be all “techy” to join, you can have little to no knowledge at all. This was my level when I joined, no knowledge but I have been with them for almost six months and my knowledge isn’t superior but it has improved.
