I asked a lot of friends online what they can do to save money before Christmas. Most of them have extra jobs online but not earning enough. So I asked them again if they have a hobby that earns money while they are at home.
Christmas is just around the corner and it will bug me again to think that I needed to earn extra money so that I can give something to my loved ones this coming season and at the same time, to buy something for myself or for my hubby and baby.
So as I surveyed people, most of them gave me the same answer and this is what I wanted to share here so that if you were also like me, who’s going to save money before this festive season, you might as well try especially if you really have the skills or talent to do that certain hobby.
1. Baking- Christmas is a season of giving, so whether you bake your favorite cake, pastries and cookies, you will surely be earning something when you bake. It’s becoming a trend now that cupcakes are also offered as an alternative to wedding cakes and favors. So if you know how to bake and you have an oven, tools for baking and such, then this opportunity is for you to try. You can start a sampler by giving your sample treat to friends, family and office colleagues. If they like it, then there goes your green signal to start a simple home business.
2. Sewing, Knitting and other Crafts work- You can have a great or simple design for those used clothes and sew them into useful things which may interest others to buy. Like for example an old pants turned into a tote bag or a spaghetti strap tank top to become a beautiful purse. The possibilities are endless as long as you know to use your imagination or being artistic. Knitting is also a great way to sell, not only on your friends and neighbors but you can try to sell it online.
3. Gardening- Do you have green thumbs? This hobby is for you because you can earn money by gardening. You don’t need a big space to try; just a small pot will do to grow those herbs and veggies which may save yourself from buying in the market. You can also sell it to people and what a joy to experience a great harvest isn’t it?
4. Photography- Believe it or not but photography is one hot hobby that sells like hot potato online. Why? It’s because when you have those good snap shots of pictures that are rare and seldom wanted by publishers and advertisers, you will reap a good income from photography. All it takes is a good knowledge and practice in photography, a very good camera of course, and an inspiration to start your way to make money. You can also offer your service to wedding events, birthdays and other important occasion. So what are you waiting for? Do you have a good camera? Try to improve your skills on photography and start earning online and offline.
5. Jewelry Making- Keep those beads, gems, charms and wires aside and place those pliers and cutters handy dandy. If you have the talent to compose a good necklace, bracelet, earrings and other stuffs then this is for you. Items for jewelry making are just around the corner. You may even browse an online tutorial if you wanted to learn more for the design. Of course, such hobby needs an investment, but not too much since you can start from small.
