Get Paid To Be a Food Demonstrator On the Weekends

Looking for weekend work? Getting a job as a food demonstrator might be the perfect part time job to compliment your 9-5 schedule. 

Free samples at the grocery store are our favorites.  (Aren’t they everybody’s??)  We sometimes drop by the store to kill time, and the kids look forward to seeing what samples will be available.

How often do you consider the person passing out the free samples?  I used to think they were store employees.  Then one day, a friend told me they were actually people brought in to specifically promote a product.

Being a food demonstrator is a flexible job that’s good for college kids, stay at home moms, and, yes, people trying to fill their contingency savings fund.

That was a pretty wild coincidence.  But no matter the topic, finding a focus group can be a fun way to make some extra cash.

The Best Way To Sell Your Broken Appliances For Cash

When the dryer finally dies, don’t worry about whether the trash man will take it. Here’s how to sell your broken appliances for cash…and take along all your other scrap metal, too!

I kicked the dryer in frustration and announced that it was time to start shopping for a “new” dryer.  (New as in new-to-us, since I nearly always buy secondhand.)

While Hubby and I were not excited about spending money on a dryer, our boys cheered.  A dead dryer is a chance for them to pull out their screwdrivers and do some exploring.  We let them tear old appliances apart so they can learn how they work and practice using tools.

There’s another goal in mind, too.  After they pull the dryer apart, we know we’ll get some cash for it.  And today I’ll show you how you can sell your broken appliances for cash, too.
