Doing Things Around the House
Doing things around the house sucks. Whether it’s mowing the lawn, or doing the dishes – it’s never enjoyable. I always try to make money when I do something, regardless of what it is.
As I talked about in my previous blog post, Spending Money to Save Money, this is on another level. I call this…
Spending Money to Make Money!
Here’s how I did it!
First off, because I’m located in Connecticut there is a big deal here with how your landscape looks. It’s almost like a fashion statement. You’re popular if you have a great looking backyard.
I needed to get some tree work done. I decided to get a tree removed by a local CT tree service company. After they removed it, and we’re about to haul it all off I said I wanted to keep the tree for firewood.
I told them that’d give everyone a $25 tip if they cut it up for me quick!
Sure enough the tree guys obliged, and then I just negotiated the bill down what I had spent on the tips.
After that I sold all the firewood on craigslist. I made 90% of my money back!
That’s what I call making money while spending money!
