Quick Ways to Make 1000 Dollars
Dear The Millionaires Giving Money Blog, I am a single mother living on a very low income which is probably below the poverty line. Can you give me some quick ways to make 1000 dollars?
Make a 1000 Dollars Quick
1: Tighten Up Your Budget
2: Ask To Work Overtime and Weekends
I was able to make a quick 1000 dollars above my normal salary just by putting in more time at work. This might not seem like a get rich quick idea but every little helps and when your not making money you're spending money so this strategy helped to get me expenses under control. You should definitely meet with your line manager and ask if you could be given more overtime.
3: Ask For a Pay Rise
What you need to do is to understand your level of commitment to the job and increase it as much as possible. Once you've put in the hard work you can legitimately ask for more money. This is a great idea to make 1000 quickly because sometimes you can ask for twice what you are paid once you make a significant contribution as an indispensable employee.
4: Reduce Rent or Mortgage
5: Borrow Cheap Money
When I asked for money I created a loan agreement and the dates of when I would repay the money. I would even put down a security such as a laptop, phone or even my car. Your family and friends will help if they truly believe you have the intention to pay them back.
You can also look for interest free credit cards that allow you to deposit money into your account or credit cards that offer zero percent on purchases. Using a interest free credit card as a quick 1000 dollar loan is great because you don't have to pay interest, you'll only pay off what you borrows and improve your credit score in the process.
6: Sell All Your Unwanted Items
I have done this exercise a few times and I came very close to breaking the thousand dollar mark. I sold all the items that were surplus to my requirements on eBay and made $836.50 which is not bad. Not only was I laughing all the way to the bank but I felt a sense of clarity and simplicity in my life because I did not have so much rubbish to look after in my home.
7: Sell Products for Other People
A close friend of mine tried this strategy and it was a success and he continues to do this to this day collecting items and then maximizing the profit on eBay by posting excellent pictures and descriptions and making 50% in the process.
8: Rent Everything Out
At the moment I have rented a room out in my home which helps me to pay the mortgage. I have also rented out my space and storage space which pays for my energy bills and grocery expenses. Any money I make I keep saved in the bank which is invested for my future.
I charge a hundred dollars for the service which includes a year or servicing when required and I usually get about 5 to 10 jobs per month. If you like the idea of freelancing find something that pays well which is also something you enjoy doing. It might be creating logos or setting up sites. Whatever it is providing you offer exceptional service you can potentially make a thousand dollars quickly.
10: Invest in Yourself
