Need extra money? Sell clothing on Poshmark I made $806 last month

So I made $806 last month selling my stuff on Poshmark.

To be honest I let most of my stuff go super cheap but I needed the space and the money so it was a win win for me.  I am now selling for other people and using the money to help me get abroad to teach and yes volunteer on some environmental projects.   Poshmark has been very lucrative for me and YOU CAN clean out your closet and make money.

It is very simple.  You download the free app, snap a photo of that shirt you haven’t worn in years.  Set a price and BAM  you are set.

Here are a few tips:

Share, Share, Share-  The more you share the more of your stuff that will get shared and get out to potential buyers.

Engage in the community.  Posh is a very social app.  Ask questions, read profiles and comment.  Tell people the item is awesome even if it is not your size.   Be friendly.

Ship quickly-  Posh makes it easy, they email you a label.  You slap it on a box and ship it.

I have EIGHTEEN THOUSAND followers and my network grows every day.   That is because I am very active and talk to people.  I follow people, I share… I have fun on the app.

If you are curious you can use my referral code of CUBICLEESCAPEE and get $5.  I will also get $5 which is great because I have my eyes on a swimsuit.  So consider using my referral link 🙂  Also make sure you let me know you found me via this website so I can follow your Poshmark success 🙂

Need extra income & love animals? Consider dog sitting.

This post contains a referral link at no cost to you.  If you are truly interested in dog sitting I would appreciate if you use my referral link!

This is a post I have been meaning to write for a while.  I am all about the side hustles in life and one of my favorite side hustles is dog sitting & walking.  NOT only do I get to cuddle fur babies I get to earn a little extra cash too.   Since I am moving to China next year I am at the point that every dollar I can earn is going to help me out in the long run.

It is no secret I am an animal lover, so as far as I am concerned this is a major win win side hustle.  I just started taking dog walking clients again so I am just getting back into this business but last summer I cleared over $1000 dog sitting and walking.  It took a little of my time and it helped keep me in shape.  Dogs love walks/runs… so that is a major benefit too.

Enter Rover.

I recommend if you want to stay in people’s homes you do the background check.   It doesn’t cost much and I did earn a lot of money because of this.     Rover is trustworthy and a lot of people visit the site specifically looking for dog sitters.

I have found that posting on facebook sell groups and the Next door app is very beneficial as well!   It is a way to expand your business! Especially if you are available during the day (which obviously I am!)

This is a great way to earn as little or as much as you would like!  I have found it is easy to earn $10-15 for a thirty minute dog walk and people are willing to pay $40-75 a night for dog sitting!  I once earned $200 to drop in an feed cats for five days.  Seriously people LOVE their pets and want a reliable person to take care of them.  That person COULD be you!

Email me if you have any questions! Have you tried dog walking and sitting for a bit of extra money?

Week one of my savings challenge

So it is day 7 of my savings challenge and I have saved $23.10.

Ok I know that as a long way from $1000 but this week was more about streamlining and getting prepared for larger deposits that I am planning on making this week and next week.

Now I know what you are thinking and I know $23 is not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things… but considering that my savings account has been sitting at 0 for about 4 months now I am excited to say there is money in it.

So where did the $23.10 come from?

I made an initial $5 money transfer the day I started my challenge, I had a random 5 bucks and I decided it was time to get that into an account before I spent it.   The remainder $18.10 came from selling a damaged iPhone.   I dropped my phone in water a month ago and it was just laying around taking up space and I knew I was never going to use it again, so I sold it and got $18 bucks which I automatically transferred into the account.

This week things are going to be a bit different as I am selling a few items and I do have a bit of extra money coming in on Friday  (I have been working 50-70 hour weeks) so we should see a jump in money when the 14th rolls around.

Also, I want to share for the record I work 2 part time jobs making less than $13 a hour… so my income is not amazing and in fact it can force me to be pay check to pay check… which is why I am doing this challenge to show YOU that you can end the pay check to pay check cycle and live the life of your dreams!  Plus I really want an emergency fund before I start tackling my credit card next month (which will be July & August’s money challenge).

If you are taking part in the challenge… let me know how you did in the comments below, share what you did to save money.

The 30 Day Savings Challenge

So I have received a few emails that people like my money challenges and things I am doing to save money. While researching 30-day challenges I came across this challenge from SavingAdvice.com so while this is not an original challenge I do find it interesting & challenging.


The challenge reminds me of the 52-week challenge in a lot of ways, I know a lot of people that do that challenge and find it very easy for them to save extra money in small doses. This one is challenging because it is day by day. I figured this would be a fun money challenge for the month of July since I do not have any big spending coming up & it is hot outside so I find that often I prefer the cool AC of my home, so I am not out and about spending a lot of money.

I am really trying to find fun challenges to help me save the money I need in order to achieve my dream of RTW travel. It is a lot of work but I know the end result will be worth it. This challenge will make me that much closer to my goal!

Stay tuned for next month’s money/savings goal, and feel free to try your hand at this goal! Until next time XOXO
