With summer quickly approaching, we all have big plans, don't we? We want to have grand summer adventures- whether its traveling on an exciting vacation or right in our own backyard. But so many of those plans require MONEY! When you're on an already tight budget, that can be hard to come by! Today, I am sharing 5 simple tips to help you earn a little extra fun money!

Have a Yard Sale.
Not only is a yard sale a great way to get rid of the clutter that threatens to take over your home,it's also a great way to get a little extra spending money too! Join in with some friends or neighbors for a multi family sale--- this can encourage more visitors to come for the greater variety!

Donate Plasma.
Did you know that you are PAID to donate plasma!? Now there are some health requirements that you must meet to be eligible, but if you are a healthy adult, you can donate a few times a week for extra money, and it helps other people too. Win/win! Many make several hundred dollars a month just by donating plasma! Awesome, right? Check with your local donation center for more details.

Try Out Dealspotr.
There are many websites out there that allow you to earn extra money---some through surveys, some through cash back offers, referring friends, etc... but my favorite (the one I've had most success from) is Dealspotr. You earn points by posting and validating deals from all your favorite stores. These points can then be redeemed for Amazon gift cards. If you are an Influencer, you can upgrade your account (no cost) and can then cash out via Paypal instead.

Sell on Ebay.
Like having a yard sale, selling online can be a great way to get rid of the clutter and make extra money. Generally speaking, if you have the right type of products, you can get more than you would at a yard sale, but does take a little bit more work--- taking photos, writing accurate, detailed descriptions, shipping, etc. Many people have found success in finding deals at thrift stores, yard sales and even clearance sales and reselling on eBay for profit as well.

Get Paid To Grocery Shop.
Do you enjoy grocery shopping? Why not get paid to do it? New grocery delivery services are popping up left and right, and shoppers are needed for these services. You can create your own schedule, so this can again be a great supplemental income. Personally I use Shipt (as a customer), but check your local area to see what's available.
