Money Hacks That Actually Work

Yes. The title is not clickbait, and yes, I do put about $300 every month into my pocket just by doing this simple technique that costs me in most cases, less than $10, and anyone can do it. It’s just that simple. In fact. I recommend that you give this money-making technique a try. You will be amazed at the results

I was inspired to create this article after watching several Make Money Now videos on YouTube. Quite honestly, every time I see these headlines and read the articles or watch the YouTube video. They come across as being very scammy, and the content creator loses all credibility, at least in my eyes. These are just clickbait to gain views and drive traffic. The articles and videos just lack substance and any real useful information. They have no real purpose other than putting money into the creator’s pocket.

How To Make Money With Starbucks

This method, I will go into detail about, came to me while I was waiting in the queue at Starbucks of all places. Before I told anyone about my simple technique. I wanted to test it out fully over a three-month timeframe and verify that, yes, this system does work upon the conclusion of my testing period. I can now say that each month I averaged $300 in my pocket at the end of the month, and my cost was around $10 to get these funds. I was able to do this courtesy of Starbucks. You can use this simple technique in many different ways. However please note that individual results will vary.

While standing in the lineup. Upon entry into my local Starbucks establishment. I figured I had about 10 minutes in total from the time I entered the queue to order until I walked out the door with my Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew. This is a ritual that I usually partake in twice a day, Once going to work, the other coming home. Now my weekend ritual is unpredictable.

It was during this, oh, I have some time to kill, that I decided to log into YouTube and start searching for random things. I figured since I was already at Starbucks. I would use that as my search term.

I Discovered A Financial Life Hack That Nobody Mentions

Seconds into viewing the results. I came across a video that was titled How To Make A Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew that’s Better Than Starbucks. I quickly did some calculations on my phone, which consisted of taking the total cost of the Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew at $5.65 and multiplying it by the quantity that I would purchase per week. I then multiplied that number by 4, which represented the total amount per month. The calculations look like this

14(quantity per week) x 5.65(the cost per unit) x 4(weeks) = 316.40

That's right. I was spending $316.40 just on Starbucks every month after watching this video during my lunch break at work. I decided instead of heading to Starbucks on my way home. I would visit the grocery store instead. The video and the corresponding website provided me with an ingredient list and a full recipe to follow. For less than $10, I could purchase all of the ingredients to start making my favorite beverage. It took me no time at all to make my very first Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew, and I can honestly say that I preferred my version over the other. I liked it so much more; I decided to enjoy a second one. Before my little experiment. I used to visit Starbucks twice a day because 1- I thought I was saving myself some time, and 2- I felt like I deserved it.

If you find yourself in a situation where money is tight, and you find there are never enough hours in the day. Take a step back and re-evaluate your life habits. Using this article as an example. Just switching things around, such as making something at home that you used to stand in line for, can possibly put an extra $300 in your pocket and free up close to 10 hours per month, for example, that is if you consider the amount of time you are standing in line waiting for your order just because money and time are tight. This Doesn’t mean you have to go without. Sometimes, even when it comes to finances. You have to think outside the box and get creative.

What could you do if you had an extra $300 and 10 more hours available per month? You could then turn around and

  • Pay off debts sooner

  • Invest for the future

  • Invest in yourself by taking courses

  • Start a side hustle to earn more cash and to help you escape the situation you're in

  • Improve your life quality

The internet is just full of information. Especially when it comes to life hacks such as what this article contains. You just have to go looking for it. If you want to put money in your pocket. Before trying any of these make-money-now schemes. Try just simply googling various life hacks such as secret recipes or how to make… You could be amazed at how just a simple search could change your life
