You’ve probably stumbled across ehow as you’re searching on google for searches like money saving tips or how to save money using coupons. I know I have and when I joined ehow I wanted to find friends that have a passion for saving money and making some extra income too. I’ve asked my ehow friends to send me interesting personal finance articles to help give us creative ideas to save money and make some too. Writing for ehow or another content website can create passive income for you. It does require time to create the article, but once written, you will have a source of passive income that can continue to pay each month. If you’ve never used ehow before, it only takes a few minutes to join and it’s free. Be sure to add me as a friend using the link found here. My ehow friends have sent me several personal finance articles and I’ve chosen a small sample of my favorites:
Dkrunner wrote How To Take A Cheap Vacation. Taking local backpacking day trips and picnic lunches with the family is a very frugal type of mini vacation.
Circusmama wrote How to Calculate Electricity Costs for Appliances. This ehow article is very helpful to calculate electricity usage and cut down on vampire power consumption. Figuring out if your old fridge consumes $20 or $50 a month can help your family conserve energy and stretch your utility budget. Most of my appliances are energy star rated, but does that mean they are still efficient? I’m going to run some of these calculations and hope you do as well.
Bella Casa wrote How to Make Extra Money Online and says she’s made $4-5 a week from YouData.com website. I’ve never heard of YouData, but apparently you get paid to watch ads and are paid weekly through paypal.
Cheap Cindy wrote How to Survive The Second Great Depression and shares tips on renting out a room to make extra income. Also, taking public transportation or selling a second vehicle. Selling a second or third car can save money on insurance, gas, registration and even maintenance. If you have a car sitting in the driveway or garage you’ll end up paying more to replace tires or a dead battery.
Moneydoc wrote How to Insure Your Investment Portfolio Value where cd’s are discussed to provide security to a portfolio.
If you write for ehow, be sure to add me as a friend as well.
