Make Extra Money Selling Legos?

May 17, 2010

Making extra money is something that all of us have probably felt the need to do at one point or another in our lives. There are many different ways to bring in some extra cash, the trick is to find work you can do or something you can sell that fits into your current life situation.

For example if you already have a full time job, you could get a part-time job in the evenings. Of course you have to consider things like how far away you’d have to travel, how much money you’d be making, any related child card expenses, etc

It’s not always easy to find the “perfect” side job that earns you a nice amount of money compared to the work you have to put in and is something that you enjoy. Fortunately for our family, my wife found a part-time job that worked really well for us after she left her full time position a few years ago. However, it’s looking more and more like she might be losing that job due to budget cuts.

This has us thinking lately of ways we can make extra money and reminded me of a video I made a while ago for everyone on the Money Smart Life newsletter. The video talks about a former co-worker of mine who makes enough money in his side job to pay his mortgage each month by selling Legos. I remember hearing him talk excitedly about the idea when he first started his venture and each year he started making more and more money.

I have to warn you, it’s one of my first videos so it’s a little long and I use a monotone voice so it’s not very exciting, but I think the information is good so it might be worth a few minutes of your time to check it out the link below if you’re looking to make some extra side money.

    Well, at least he isn’t the jerk that buys all of the stuff on sale and then re-sells it on ebay without doing anything to it.
