In our quest to help you discover a way to make a grand per month, the writers of this blog have shared a number of different posts about buying things and selling them for a profit.

Or, like Brian Patrick, you could buy items and sell them on Amazon.

Sometimes we struggle to find an idea to make a grand per month, when really all we have to do is look at our own lives. If you’d like to make some money on the side, consider what you do all day, every day. Think what you do isn’t important enough to make extra money? Think again.
In the last few months, I’ve been carefully considering ways to make extra money, and I’ve noticed the clever ways people “create” their own jobs based on what they know and love.

Do you ever scout out great deals at the supermarket? Perhaps you’re a master couponer and you’re able to find 2 for 1 deals and then still take $1.00 of that already reduced price of spaghetti. Where else have you noticed that you can find a savings?
A few years ago, I used to work for one of the big office supply stores. I was stationed at the headquarters and it was my job to proof-read the catalog pricing before the prints went out to our prospective customers. One of my areas of focus was on any item that was selling in bulk – I had to make sure that the each price for a bulk purchase was less than the each price for buying a single.

Of course, there is a learning curve as you grow to understand what items are more profitable, but within a few months, you should develop a knack for knowing what sells well. (If you have a smart phone, you can always access eBay and other websites to look in real-time to see what items are selling for before you buy them.)

I have already mentioned that my daughter has started an Etsy shop and is selling jewelry. Well, she has started to get some orders and actually had a few while she was sleeping the other night, so I was asking her how cool it was to be making money while sleeping.

So what are some ways that you could actually make an extra grand per month while sleeping?
Start an Etsy store: Creating some craft or item for sale allows you to post the items on the site and enable individuals to shop at any time even while you are sleeping. Your store is always available for people to find.
Selling on Ebay: The same principles apply to selling stuff on Ebay. Simply list the items that you have to sell and the
