Quick cash can be as close as a click on your computer, if you know what to look for.
If you have the time to browse Freecycle and the free section on Craigslist-- and can pick up high demand items when you see them pop up-- you can make some quick cash, by turning around and selling the goods.
At Freecycle.org, you have to join to become a member. But membership is free. Local volunteers moderate the site where members list items at no charge.
Craigslist has a free section, too, where you can find items to turn around and sell, but you have to be quick.
Time is money, so need to have time to browse the web and then pick up items at a moment's notice.
Stacey Ross, of SanDiegoBargainMama.com says there are people who earn a lot of money, by scouring the listings of free things they can turn into a profit.
"If you watch that stuff enough," Ross says, "you would be amazed the stuff you can find literally for free that's quality."
As always, use caution when dealing with online ads, and take reasonable measures to protect your safety and privacy.
