Here are some ways to create a $1,000 nest egg without doing anything illegal!

Drive for Lyft or Uber

Depending on where you live and how much availability you have, you can make a lot of money driving for Uber or Lyft to put towards your nest egg.

Teach Something

Have a unique skill or passion? Create and sell an online course. There are plenty of websites available that make getting started easy!

Selling them will get you some much-needed cash flow. If you can’t find a broker to buy them, you can pawn them or try to sell them on eBay.

Mow Lawns and Do Gardening Work

Knock on some doors, hang up some signs, or post on neighborhood groups that you are willing to cut back perennial plants, remove dead annual plants and weeds, rake, mulch, and get the garden ready for winter or summer for a flat fee.

Sell Your Clutter

There are many platforms to sell your used stuff, but if you need emergency cash quickly, try posting it on neighborhood chats and groups or craigslist- you will get some money in your hand faster.
