How to Raise Money Fast

If you're in need of money quickly, whether to pay emergency bills or start a small home business, here are several ways to get started.

Whatever the reason, we all find ourselves in a situation where we need money FAST! There are many ways to get the money you need quickly and fairly easily. The best way to get started is to sell anything that you have and really don't need. We all have clothing, knick-knacks, toys, etc., laying around that we no longer need.

OPTION 1: ONLINE AUCTIONS - Auction sites such as eBay allow you to sell almost anything under the sun. Any items you have laying around that are in fairly good condition can be sold this way. Just be sure to factor in all of your costs and add it into your starting price. You will need to consider the fees to list your items and your shipping fees (which the seller pays). If the items you are selling will fit in a large envelope, and you use priority shipping, you can ship almost anywhere in the U.S. for less than $5. Larger items vary, but you can get postage prices at USPS.com. *For More Information On Using eBay, Visit Link In Resources Box Below Article.

OPTION 2: Consign - There is also the option of your local consignment shops, these are especially useful if you have large items (like furniture) that aren't easy to ship (through an Ebay sale). Here you will find that you can sell almost anything in these locations as well. The beauty of this option is you don't have to mess with anything, no watching auctions, printing shipping labels or mailing packages. Just go drop off your bag of clothing, box of knick-knacks or furniture and check in with them in a few days to see what you've sold.

OPTION 3: Garage/Yard Sale - You could also hold your own garage sale, or if your location is not the best for this, go in with a friend. Offer to hold the sale at her home and in exchange, you will manage the sale and track their items that are sold.
