Fast and easy ways to make free money

Have you ever heard the phrases: " a penny saved is a penny earned" or " every little penny counts?"

It can be hard to make money and saving money doesn't take a backseat. I personally know a gentleman that dislikes, actually despises pennies. On more than one occasion, I've witnessed literally throw handfuls of pennies into a parking lot. I've also seen my child pick up and save the very same pennies. Believe me, had she not, I sure would have.

Money and savings are hard to come by. There just never seems to be enough. I'd like to share a list of ways for you to make extra and often free money.

Here are a few ways to find and earn extra money!

Sell your unwanted household items and clothing on a Facebook yard sale group.

Sell unwanted items on eBay or Amazon.
