Earn Extra Cash This Winter

January 25, 2017

Use the winter season to your advantage and make some money with these eight tips.

Traditionally, winter is thought of as a time for staying indoors, curling up by the fire, and sipping some cocoa. Here at Cash4Books, we’re ready to mix things up! Instead of staying in, go out and make some cash. Summer’s not the only time of year you can use the seasonal weather to your advantage. These winter-themed tips will pad your wallet for the whole season!

1. Clear snow in your neighborhood

One simple way to earn cash in the winter is to use the weather to your benefit. Offer to shovel your neighbors’ walkways for a few dollars. Get your workout in, and aim to do the whole block! Post about your services in an app like Nextdoor, or try Craigslist to get the word out.

2. Run errands for your neighbors

When the winter weather hits, homebound individuals and those with mobility issues need more help. Offer to run errands and go grocery shopping for your neighbors who can’t get outside. If someone is lacking transportation, that’s another way to add value. Charge them a few bucks and drive them to the store, or consider joining Uber or Lyft as a driver.

3. Help out with yard work

No one wants to do yard work when it’s cold outside. This leaves an opening for you to provide a service. In wet climates, make major cash by cleaning gutters and storm drains. The winter is also an ideal time to prune your trees and roses, so read up on the correct methods and advertise your skills.

4. Sell your wares at a craft fair

Craft fairs happen all the time in the winter! Check out your local community center or city events calendar to find one near you. Channel your crafty, artsy side and make something to sell. Borrow some ideas from our holiday DIY gift-giving guide, and get started!

5. Teach someone to ski or snowboard

If you’re talented on the slopes, you can turn those skills into cash! Give a lesson and teach others how to ski or snowboard. Whether it’s with kids who’ve never ventured onto the mountain or adults trying it for the first time, if you’re patient and helpful you can make some extra money!

6. Help people achieve their New Year’s resolution

The winter is ripe with people working towards their New Year’s resolutions. Try creating a blog to help them achieve their dreams. If you’re great in the kitchen, blog about your favorite healthy recipes. If working out in the gym is your forte, craft workouts with different goals in mind. This is all about using your skills to benefit others. If your blog gets traffic, you can easily monetize it with online ads and rake in the cash. The more influence you garner, the more cash you can make.

7. Take care of people’s pets

Pet care is another way to take advantage of the winter. When people go on vacation, they need someone to watch their furry family member. If the weather is wet and cold, they may need someone to walk their dog. Start by volunteering your services to people you know, and work out from there. There’s definitely money to be made in dog walking!

8. Sell your old stuff

Last but not least, get a jump on spring cleaning and sell your old stuff. Start with your used textbooks and head over to our homepage to get a price quote. If your closet has winter clothes you haven’t worn this season, take them to your local thrift shop, or sell them in an app like Poshmark. Your old trash is another person’s treasure after all!

The winter doesn’t have to be a season of simply sitting around inside! Put your skills and talents to use and find the right money-making venture for you. Now, get out there and start raking in the cash!
