I need a $10 idea (yep, thats it)

17 replies
Looking for your best ideas to raise ten bucks from scratch in less than 24 hours.

Yep, just ten bucks.

Why that amount? Because struggling with a small amount is embarrassing, this is an exercise in money muscles.

Ten bucks can put gas in someones car to go prospecting or to a job (that they like).

Shoot!

    The best thing you can do is put yourself out there.

  • Go To Fiverr and sell two gig sales.

    Sell anything cheap to a business owner

    Or mow the lawn of a local business. It's that easy.

    Go to iWriter and make $10. They payout on Tuesdays to PayPal automatically.

    All kinds of manual labor.
    Mow a lawn
    Rake Leaves
    Trim Bushes
    Wash a car
    Clean Gutters

    Not into manual labor? Sell something you own. Find something around the house you don't use any more and sell it.

    The parameters on this are pretty loose. There are a ton of things you can do to get $10.

    $10? Dude just go to Walmart, the Mall, or another place with a parking lot and tell people you are low on gas and can they spare a dollar. Most will give you $1 or more and then you are set.

    All good ideas from the posters.

    Aaron's will definitely work in a pinch. I've been hit up like that
    in a parking lot. Gave the guy a couple of bucks. So, from experience
    it works. Have also given money to a guy selling pens and a women selling
    flowers. So, those work, too

    Someone could also offer to clean headlights or clean auto interiors.
    You'll make more than $10 though, so I guess they don't qualify.

    I have other quick money ideas but they all make more than $10.

    Since this is the offline section of an IM forum, I suppose you could sell
    websites or related services for $10.

    I wouldn't offer an installment plan, though.

    I'm sure we've all heard this one before. Go buy a case of bottled water. It's hot now in most places in the northern hemisphere...go to high traffic areas and sell them for $1 apiece. They cost what, $5 a case of 24? Got a cooler and ice cubes from the freezer? I'll bet you don't even have to say a word; just have a sign that says "Cold Bottled Water - $1" and smile.

  • Lets say you can't afford the water.

    Put a sign around your neck saying something like -

    "I'm sorry to have to ask, but I am dead broke, could you spare me a dollar?"

    Or

    "I'm sorry to have to ask, but I am dead broke, could you spare me a dollar

    Honestly, if you were standing here wearing this sign I would give you a buck"

    (This should get the money much faster, but for goodness sake be careful how you spell "buck")


    Then go and do Jason's idea.

    Or if you can stand it - just keep wearing the sign.

      Neither of these ideas are good ideas. In Texas, both are considered pandering and can get you arrested in which case you'll need more than $10 for bail money and could get jail time.

    Offer to wash someones car.. I have a cousin when he was young he would do this and he would actually make good money doing it (alot more than $10 bucks in a day).. He would call up friends and family and say I need to raise some money and ask to wash their cars.

  • ...I didn't think or say mine was a good idea (it was more of a desperate shot at getting a tenner).

    Obviously don't do it in Texas or any other state which objects.

    Well there was challenge somewhere here on the forum that asked people to make money by hiring two fiverr gigs. Haven't done it yet myself, but you might try it out and tell me how it goes
