3 Creative Ways to Make Money Without Leaving Your House

With the COVID-19 crisis leaving many of us furloughed, fired, or with shorter working hours, many of us could use some extra money right now. But making extra cash safely in the middle of a pandemic isn't easy. Even essential workers, who represent 34% of the country's 162 million workers, will soon be losing their hazard pay.
No one knows how long it'll be before the economy can safely reopen. Many countries who have reopened in the past week have just as quickly shut their doors again. But there are still ways you can make money through distanced work.
Here are a few creative ways you can make money from the safety of your home during the coronavirus outbreak.

Sell your stuff with contactless shipping

Believe it or not, many people are still selling things online during the COVID-19 crisis. This can be done safely if you're mailing items, wiping them down with effective disinfecting wipes, or spraying them with disinfectant. If you're buying clothing, make sure to wash the clothes immediately and wash your hands after handling them.
If you have unused tech items, consider selling them on a site like Decluttr, which has contactless shipping. While you could sell a Macbook Pro to a pawn shop for $248 on average, it's not recommended to visit stores in person even when they reopen.

Write for content marketing teams

E-commerce is thriving right now as more Americans are online shopping than ever before. Traditionally, marketing efforts relied on four different channels to connect with customers: print, mail, TV, and phone. But now that digital marketing is king, a greater number of businesses are working hard to get their content marketing and SEO in shape to drive traffic to their websites.
That's where you come in. With companies focusing their efforts on content marketing, you can offer them your writing skills to meet those needs. Look for contract writing gigs or online magazines that take submissions from writers (with payment, of course).

Teach a skill online

With more people spending time indoors and looking to take on new hobbies to pass the time, you have the opportunity to make money by sharing your skills in an online class on websites like Skillshare.
First-time teachers make an average of $200 in their first month on Skillshare. But it's worth noting that, to receive a payment for the month, you need to get a minimum total of 30 Premium minutes-watched across all of your classes that month.

Know your options for aid

It's challenging to hustle right now to make extra money. If you're in dire straits, make sure that you know what your aid options are. The U.S. government recently instituted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. The CARES Act is meant to provide 100% federal funding to states to provide 13 weeks of Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation to those who need it.
Check to see if you qualify for these benefits. If you do, apply through your state program and indicate on the form that you've been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!


While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities. If you are shifting to a freshly build house, you do not need to make a lot of renovation, though you can add a little personal touch to it. When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
