Unless you live in a cave, you’ve figured out by now that everyday living expenses can really add up. If you think you’re safe because you’ve got your rent or mortgage all paid off, think again. Transit, insurance, and utilities can add up quickly, and that’s not even including money for going out and enjoying being alive.
Wouldn’t it all be easier if you had a ton of money? If you’ve ever had that thought, read this list to check out a few ways you can bring in some extra cash to finance that luxurious lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.
Win the lottery
This is the first on everyone’s list, and the success stories that you hear plastered all over the morning news make it really appealing. The return on investment is huge — usually you’ll spend $5 tops on a lottery ticket, and with some of the lotteries you can win up to $1.6 billion dollars.
If you take the lump sum prize, you can invest that money safely and live off the interest for the rest of your life. Just beware of distant relatives who come out of the woodwork to offer their “congratulations.”
