On top of being extra frugal next month, I’m going to try and make money in July as well. My money making juices had run dry for the last several months but they are back in full force and ready to go! Most of these things aren’t quick, big money makers, but they will help and every little bit adds up. Some of the money/gift cards that I earn I’ll be setting aside for Christmas gifts. I have one in particular I really want to get for my husband for Christmas (which will remain unmentioned just in case he reads this) but it’s going to take a focused effort to be able to pull it off by Christmas.
Making Money in July:
Sell on Craigslist.
We have our old dryer that we need to get rid of. Our washer went out and we ended up buying a newer set and now have an extra dryer in our garage. Since it didn’t sell at our garage sale it’s going on craigslist. I also have a few other items left over from the garage sale that I think I’ll throw up and see what happens.
Swagbucks, Jingit, and Mypoints oh my!
I want to spend time everyday checking in and a crewing the bucks/change/points that I can. Everything adds up!

This may not directly be money, but it does equal money I don’t have to spend on gifts. Which can be a BIG help around Christmas and birthdays. I can also resell anything I may win that doesn’t end up working as a gift for anyone in the near future.
Create an Etsy shop.
This is going to happen, I’m just not sure I will get to it this month. It depends how quickly I need to start harvesting the produce from our garden. I have been collecting vintage kitchenware and dishes at garage sales and rummage sales for very cheap and am going to start selling them on Etsy to make some extra income. Pray this is successful, because the money would be a big help and I love finding vintage stuff and an Etsy store would give me a reason to buy it and help it find a good home.
I’ll be keeping my eyes open for other ways to add to our bottom line throughout the month, but these are what came from my quick brainstorming.
What are some things you are doing to bring in some extra money?

I too am guilty of having an appliance in my basement that needs to be sold. Our washer is out there, but I’m leaving on vacation this week and didn’t want to post, and then be gone!
I’d love for you to share your post at Homemade Mondays:
We were the same way. We had a garage sale the weekend before we went on vacation and were hoping it would sell then. When it didn’t I didn’t want to deal with posting it on Craigslist when we were getting ready to leave. That was a month ago. Here’s hoping it sells soon so I can quit thinking about it!
Thanks for the invite I will check it out!
