Learn How To Make Money Instead of Save Money

Aug 4, 2008
With the downturn in the economy and the high gas prices, many families are looking for ways to save money. Spending money wisely and trying to save is always a good thing but most people overlook one of the best ways to save money. Simply making more money is the same as saving it!

Learning how to make more money is infinitely better than just saving it because it is something you can continue to do even after the bad times are over. Rather than trying to find ways to save money, I suggest trying to find ways to make money. If you're gasoline bill is $50.00 more per month than it was 2 months ago, you would be in no worse shape if you learned how to make $50.00 more per month instead of save $50.00.

Making money is not easy but nothing in worthwhile in life is easy. If you never attempt it then you will never know if you can succeed. I started out by selling things on Ebay. I still know people who are aware of what Ebay is but are reluctant to try to start selling. If you are trying to think of ways to save money, why not start by cleaning out your closets, selling some of it on Ebay, and start making money. Things that sell well on Ebay are lots (groups) of childrens clothes, music cd's, and movie DVD's. These are things that most everyone has lying around. How many DVD movies do you have that you are never really going to watch again? Gather them all up and put them up on Ebay and you will have "saved" enough to buy that extra tank of gas.

In the end, this post is about putting the idea in your head to be proactive and start finding ways to make money instead of finding ways to save money. Finding how to make more money is a lot more fun and productive than always trying to cut back and save.

If you can learn how to make more money, that skill can benefit you the rest of your life and give you the ability to have more things. Learning how to save only allows you to have fewer things. If you make more money it will allow you to pay off those bills and it will serve the same purpose as saving to pay off those bills. After the bills are paid off and the good times return, however, you will have learned how to make that extra income that will bring a little extra joy into your life.
