September Side Hustle

use sept

I started using Ebay as a way to make additional income and clear out my closet,  I don’t know why it has taken me this long to get on board but I’m glad I did! Using Ebay has helped me add additional income to help out with bills and gas money. Even better are the new adventures it has unlocked for me, I enjoy organizing my closet, taking inventory and shipping out the items. I started using the service last month and I have found myself spending more time in the Thrift Store as well, donating items from my closet and finding new ones to sell. If you are looking for a new way to add money to your wallet try using Ebay or a similar service. Ebay is what I am currently using and I like the level of security it provides, I would like to try out other sites too please comment any you use below!

Creativity Can

IMG_0252 (1)

This summer I was introduced to the Creativity Can, they are cool activities conveniently packed into a can, I love using them at work and having some around the house for downtime activities whenever I babysit.

 

Each Can has a different theme and comes with a specific number of pieces ( any where from 30-100), the possibilities are endless for kids, but each can does include instructions. This is a great way to re-direct children’s attention and get them to focus and reduce anxiety. I purchased this Art Creativity Can from the Cleveland Museum of Art, to see all the cans that are available check out their website here!

Bamboo Charcoal Foot Inserts

I spend a lot of time on my feet and I sweat a lot! I used to swear  by foot powders, but I hate the effects it has in my socks, carpet and insides of shoes. I came across Bamboo Charcoal Foot Inserts and I have been in love ever since. After coming home I take my shoes off and insert the foot pads to help remove odors. These $10 pads are reusable can be recharged by placing them in the sun.

DIY Drinks

Cheesecake Factory Georgia Peach Cocktail D.I.Y.

If you have ever been to the Cheesecake Factory and tried the Georgia Peach Cocktail you have probably fallen in love as well, since I always crave this I decided to make my own. This recipe can be tailored to create visually appealing cocktails! This drink idea is perfect for anyone that is on a budget and can cost anywhere from $20-$30 depending on the brand of alcohol you buy. This recipe allowed for me to make the drinks for myself and friends and was a cheaper option than buying them all the same drink at the restaurant.
