How to Make Money at Home

Let’s get two critical points out of the way first. It is next to impossible to earn, even a penny, on most, if not all, work at home scams (the ones you get in your email) and it takes high energy to succeed in most business endeavors. This means if you are looking for an easy way to earn money you will not read about it here.

Keep your eye out for water leaks and drips, sniff for musty odors, and listen for sounds of running or dripping water.

If you find any issues, immediately repair them. A small investment now could save you thousands of dollars later. Depending on the nature of the problem, you may be able to solve the problem on your own. A quick trip to the hardware supply store and a little elbow grease may be all that’s needed. Even if you need to hire a plumber, fixing a pipe before it bursts is much less expensive and far less damaging than waiting for the pipe to spew gallon after gallon of water into your home.
