Due to disabilities, many of us are not able to have a job outside of our homes. Some find ways to be self-employed by running a business out of our homes, but others can not fit in with that type of job and having the ability to leave their house to work would be a hardship whether your wheelchair bound or not.
I am one of those people, and it has been hard trying to explain why I am unable to work outside my home. Fibromyalgia steals your strength and your life. While I am not wheelchair bound yet, I am weaker then I care to be, and this has been a problem with family and friends who can not see my disability. But this is not about me. It is about making some money to buy the things that our small disability incomes do not cover.
I found such ways and I will share them with you. The first way is something I discovered by accident-- selling books or dvd's or computer games you no longer need. Check out Amazon or Cash4books.
Next, doing surveys online. Here you need to be careful, for there are many places that say you will be paid, but lots of them are not worth the effort and will drag out your ability to earn enough money to cash out or even refuse payment or cancel your account without warning just to avoid paying you for your efforts.
My personal favorites are opinionoutpost.com and pineconeresearch.com They provide you with real surveys and pay you well for your efforts. Though them you will often be referred to other good survey sites.
Then there are fun sites to belong to that you will build friendships with other members. These sites add fun to your day to chase away the lonely hours. Swagbucks is one of my favorites. You watch video's and do other small tasks to earn giftcards. Another such site is MyPoints.com. Remember you do not need to purchase anything on or through these sites to earn points or credits. Just do all the free things like reading emails and watching ad video's or signing up for newsletters which you can cancel if they become a problem.
Joining these sites will give you a feeling of independence and a chance to make some cash and lift your spirits knowing that your opinion is worth a few cents.
