It won’t be long before the holiday season’s here and you’re a little short. How can you come up with some fast money to ensure your budget covers your shopping list? We’ve got a few ideas:
1) Give up what you don’t need to give you what you do. That might sound confusing, but it couldn’t be more simple. Can you live without cable for a couple months and rent or stream instead? That’s a big chunk of change. How about brownbagging your lunch and setting aside the money you’d spend at the deli? That’ll add up fast.
2) Sell unwanted stuff. The Internet has made this easier than ever before with sites like Craig’s List and eBay (even Facebook!). And unlike having a work intensive garage sale, you list one item and get the power of millions of buyers who may want it—and one is all you need. Browse similar items first to see what sells, then list yours (if you don’t want to take the time to learn to list, find a local service who will do it for a cut).
3) Visit Loudoun Jewelry on Maple Avenue with your jewelry. If you just want fast cash, we’ll make you an offer on the spot. If it’s jewelry you want to get back, we’ll make a loan. Either way, you’ll walk out with the money you need now.
