PLEASANT TO WRAP UP THE REST OF THE WEEK, AND WE WILL DESERVE IT. CINDY AND ANDREA, OVER TO YOU. THANK YOU. SPRING IS A TIME OF RENEWAL, AND THAT GOES FOR FINANCES AS WELL. HERE WITH SOME TIPS ON HOW TO SPRING CLEAN YOUR FINANCES, IT’S CONSUMER AND MONEY SAVING EXPERT ANDREA WARICK. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. IS IT TRUE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE NO SAVINGS? 40% OF AMERICANS HAVE LESS THAN A THOUSAND DOLLARS IN SAVINGS. THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS IF AN UNEXPECTED LIFE MOMENT HAPPENS, YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM OR YOUR CAR BREAKS DOWN, YOU DON’T HAVE THE CASH TO COVER IT, AND THEN THAT’S WHEN YOU RELY ON HIGH INTEREST CREDIT CARDS AND GET INTO DEBT. IT’S IMPORTANT TO BOOST THAT BUDGET AND BUILD A SAVINGS ACCOUNT. WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE — WHAT ARE A FEW TIPS THAT PEOPLE SHOULD BE DOING TO KIND OF CLEAN UP THEIR FINANCES? EXACTLY. OR START SAVING. WHILE YOU’RE AT HOME AND SPRING CLEANING, THINK ABOUT HOW YOU CAN MAKE SOME MONEY FROM YOUR ITEMS AT HOME THAT YOU NO LONGER NEED OR USE. YOU COULD SELL THEM ONLINE. YOU MAY BE SITTING ON HUNDREDS OR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU HAVE TO SELL WHETHER IT’S CLOTHING, TECH, TOYS OR BABY ITEMS, AND SITES LIKE eBAY I REALLY LOVE. THEY HAVE A GLOBAL MARKETPLACE OF 170 MILLION BUYERS. THAT MEANS THERE’S GOING TO BE SOMEBODY, MORE SHOPPERS LOOKING FOR YOUR SPECIFIC ITEM. YOU’RE GOING TO SELL IT FASTER AND COMPARED TO OTHER SITES MAKE MORE MONEY. THEY LAUNCHED A NEW FEATURE WHERE THEY USE AUGMENTED REALITY TO HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT SHIPPING BOX, AND I’VE LOST MONEY WHEN I’M SHIPPING BECAUSE I CALCULATE IT INCORRECTLY. IF YOU HAVE AN ANDROID ENABLED MOBILE DEVICE, USE THE eBAY APP AND PRAISE YOUR ITEM IN VIRTUAL BOXES. IT MAKES IT HASSLE FREE TO SELL YOUR ITEMS ONLINE. HOW ABOUT GIVING YOUR OPINION, HOW DO WE DO THAT? MARKETING COMPANIES, BUSINESSES, RETAILERS, THEY’RE LOOKING FOR YOUR OPINION. THEY WILL PAY YOU FOR IT. SO YOU COULD GO TO FINDFOCUSGROUPS.COM AND PARTICIPATE IN DIFFERENT STUDIES. IN NEW YORK CITY THEY’RE LOOKING FOR MOMS. THEY WILL PAY UP TO $175. OR COUPLES TO DISCUSS DIFFERENT TOPICS, THEY’RE LOOKING TO PAY $400. THERE’S ALSO SITES YOU CAN GO LIKE SWAG BUCKS OR SLICE OF PIE TO TAKE SURVEYS AND RATE MUSIC, JUST EASY WAYS TO MAKE SOME EXTRA CASH ON THE SIDE. ANOTHER ONE IS GO MYSTERY SHOPPING. THERE ARE COMPANIES THAT WILL PAY YOU TO, YOU KNOW, SPEAK WITH A SALESPERSON TO SEE HOW WELL THEY’RE SELLING A PRODUCT, TO TEST DRIVE A NEW CAR AND TO ALSO TRY A NEW RESTAURANT WITH A FRIEND. SO COMPANIES LIKE BEST MARK AND MARKET FORCE, YOU CAN FIND LEGITIMATE MYSTERY SHOPPING OPPORTUNITIES. NOW JUST BEWARE IF A COMPANY’S ASKING YOU TO PAY UP FRONT TO PARTICIPATE, IT COULD BE A SCAM SO JUST STICK WITH THOSE COMPANIES AND YOU KNOW, LOOK FOR REVIEWS ONLINE. THAT’S GOOD ADVICE. HOW ABOUT RUNNING ERRANDS? A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR SOME HELP ON THE SIDE. YOU DON’T HAVE TO COMMIT TO A NIGHTTIME JOB OR A WEEKEND JOB IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HAVE THAT SET SCHEDULE. YOU COULD DO SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS GO GROCERY SHOPPING OR IF YOU’RE HANDY HELP SOMEONE BUILD FURNITURE OR REPAIR SOMETHING AT HOME. THERE ARE SITES CALLED TASK RABBITS.COM. IF YOU’RE A PET LOVER YOU COULD GO DOG WALKING OR DOG SITTING THROUGH ROVER.COM, AND I WAS READING ONLINE THAT IF YOU TAKE TWO TO THREE DIFFERENT DOGS UP TO TWO WEEKS A MONTH, YOU COULD MAKE A THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH. EVEN IF YOU DON’T WANT TO COMMIT THAT MUCH TIME, MAYBE MAKE $500, THAT COULD PAY A GOOD CHUNK OF YOUR RENT OR BOOST YOUR SAVINGS QUICKLY. THE LAST ONE RECYCLE YOUR THINGS. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE YOU CAN RECYCLE YOUR ITEMS, AT THE AUTO BODY SHOP, THEY WILL ACTUALLY PAY YOU FOR YOUR OLD BATTERY. YOU’LL GET A $10 GIFT CARD. THERE ARE ALSO DIFFERENT JUNK YARD TYPE PLACES THAT WILL PAY YOU CASH FOR OLD SCRAP METAL. AT STAPLES AND OFFICE DEPOT THEY WILL PAY YOU $2 FOR INK CARTRIDGES. REALLY EASY WAYS TO MAKE SOME EXTRA MONEY, A LOT OF THINGS YOU ALREADY HAVE AROUND YOUR HOME OR SPEND A FEW MINUTES IF YOU’RE READY GOING SHOPPING TO TEST A NEW PRODUCT. EVERYONE’S ALWAYS COMPLAINING ABOUT LACK OF MONEY AND THAT’S SOMETHING EVERYONE CAN DO. SELLING YOUR ITEMS, THAT’S HOW MANY OF US HAVE THINGS WE DON’T USE THAT ARE SITTING IN OUR CLOSET. HOW MANY OLD GADGETS DO WE HAVE IN THE KITCHEN DRAWER. SPEND ONE DAY COLLECTING THE ITEMS, YOUR SECOND DAY IS A GOOD TIME TO TAKE THE PHOTOS AND THE THIRD DAY IS POSTING IT. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.
