Creative Ways to Earn Extra Money

7 of 13
Slide 6

Turn Your Hobby into Income


Many hobbies provide opportunities to earn extra money. One mom posted that her husband raised aquarium fish and sold them. Other ideas include selling handmade jewelry, pottery, and art at craft fairs or on websites such as Etsy. If you love to bake, you can sell your baked goods at a bake sale, and homemade preserves can turn a tidy profit, either by themselves or in a goodie basket. If sewing is your forte, handmade quilts and curtains are always a favorite and people will be more than happy to buy them. No matter what your interest, you're bound to find a way to make some money doing something you love.
