Anybody up to a April challenge to bring in extra?

Our income has completely changed. My husband left his nearly six figure income due to health issues and is starting his own business. We managed to get all debt besides the house paid off, and six months of bills outside of our mortgage and electric paid in advance, but now we are getting creative to bring in enough income while my husband gets his business off the ground. So hoping there may be a couple people that want to join me in a challenge for April to help keep me motivated and encourages? I'll be doing a combination of selling unneeded items on fb, preparing for a consignment sale, and looking for odd jobs. May start doing swag bucks again if I can get any extra time, and would love other suggestions.

Sorry. I don't have any suggestions. But I'm interested as well. I'm interested in ideas that don't make me anxious 😄

I'm working on selling stuff we don't need too, so I'd join you. I've already got rid of a few things this month but the only one I remember was yesterday and it was just $6. Supposed to get rid of another $20 today.

I did get rid of that $20 off stuff today (kid toys) so that puts me at $26. I have some more stuff listed and need to get more up.

I took a bunch of kids' clothing to the consignment shop today. $28 right there. I have other things that need to be listed online, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Look under Gigs on Craigslist - I've found a number of jobs tutoring people how to use Photoshop, etc.

Thanks for the idea! I never think of Craigslist anymore.

Sold more mason jars today ($55) and a kids compound bow ($30). So at $115. I did end up listing two more things yesterday. Would like to find several more to list after I get my kids in bed.
