Hold a Garage sale:

A garage sale is what you can do in front of your house without spending money. Garage sales are often held on weekends to take advantage of weekend shoppers.

In most garage sales, people sell what they have in-house which they are no longer using.

But since we are talking about starting with no money at all, I will advise that you drive around your neighborhood and check for stuff that people have thrown away especially from apartment buildings.

You will find a great throve of items that are still usable and in good condition. Which you can sell during your garage sales.

The good thing about garage sales is that you get paid instantly so you have cash on hand.

If you finish your garage sale and you still have leftover products.

You can refinish and refurbish them, list them on eBay or Etsy and sell it.

Sell at Flea market

The second way of generating income right now is to look for a nearby flea market or county fair where you can participate and sell your goods.

The good thing about flea markets is that you don’t have to look for customers, it’s the problem of the organizers to do that.

Once you are able to pay for space, you can then appear on the market day and sell your goods.

Offer a trending seasonal service.

For example, we are currently in the winter season, a lot of people will need a snow removal service. You can go around your neighborhood and offer to help them with such services for a fee.

If it’s during spring, then it’s time to tend the garden or mow the lawn. Capitalize on the season and make money out of it.

Offer a home based kid care:

For instance, within that radius where you live, there must be someone who wants emergency nanny care. Go round and drop your contacts asking people to book you now in case their nannies ever quit on them at the last minute.

You already care for your kids, so including an additional playmate should not be so hard. Because your service is an emergency service, you can also charge a premium.

Offer to do their delivery at a cost that will usually be borne by their customers.
