I always believe that there is a world of abundance out there.
This means that while there are the popular and the usual ways to make money; there are also unique and uncommon ways to earn some extra income.
This is something you’ll discover if you consciously allow yourself to be open to opportunities.
Today, I’m sharing with you a contributed article by one of our readers, Laurence.
In his guest post below, he gives us a list of what he considers as unique ways to make money today. Let’s read what he has to say.
There’s a time when all of us are low on cash. We’re willing to work ourselves to death so we can get by. It’s important to stay calm and approach the issue with poise.
Everyone experiences this and whether it’s because we’re late on rent, need gas money, or can’t afford your credit card bill, there are ways that you may not have thought about that will get some money in your pocket.
Some of these ideas might not appeal to you but if you’re having a hard time finding work, there are unique ways that you can make money.
There’s always a way to make money. If you have a car, for example, auto title loans are a great short-term moneymaking option. You can get a loan with the worth of your car and pay back the loan when your next paycheck comes around.
It should be stressed that this is a short-term option because if you don’t pay it back you could find yourself without a car and owing even more money. If this doesn’t sound like a good option for you, consider biking.
It sounds obvious but gas is terribly expensive and you could save yourself hundreds every month by cutting down on how much you’re using your car.
If you own a house or apartment, consider renting out one of your rooms. It could be to a friend in need of a new pad. You can also post an ad in the classifieds, though this probably isn’t ideal.
If you are in real need of cash and you don’t mind sharing your space, you can kill two birds with one stone. You can cut down on your monthly bills and make money at the same time.
Craigslist is the perfect alternative to the yard sale. You can sell your stuff online through this site and it doesn’t cost you anything to use it.
It’s far better than a yard sale because your exposure is limited to your neighborhood. With Craigslist you can increase your exposure and get in touch with a much larger group of people that want to buy your possessions.
Perhaps you don’t feel that your things are worth enough to sell. Don’t feel this way. There’s someone out there that will buy it. The site gets tens of millions of users everyday. Check it out.
If you’re good with words and know your way around the page, consider going online and doing freelance writing. There’s a ton of sites that will pay you really good money for writing an article or review.
Sites need content and they can’t afford to hire staff writers so the hire out the work. It’s a win-win situation. Sites don’t have to hire full-time writers and you’re getting paid. It’s pretty easy to do so check out different places that you can do some freelance writing.
These are just a few of the options. There’s millions of ways to make money, some better than others.
Just know that if you’re broke, you don’t have to stay that way. It just takes a little effort and some creative thinking and you could be back in the green in no time.

Good stuff Fitz!!
Definitely rental space. Consistent flow of income, plus you only just have to maintain the place. I’m into online services at the moment, but I think papunta rin talaga sa rental yung gusto ko, since nakakapagod kapag startup na may daily operations.
This post was a good read so I posted it on my Facebook to hopefully give you more readers.
Simple and practical tips! Selling unused stuff is really a good advice. But I am more incline to the renting and freelancing advice that you gave. Thanks for the info!
Yeah. I’d prefer writing through blogging.
