2) Sell Your Trash
One man's poison is another man's cure.
Things lying around at home that you no longer use or have replacements already, could be worth a few dollars to even a few thousand dollars.
A general rule of thumb would be to ask yourself 1 question. "Will I be using or is there a chance that I may use this item in the next 12 months? If the answer is 'Yes', do nothing. If the answer is 'No', get rid of that thing!
You could set up an account at Carousell or Facebook marketplace and start selling those items.
3) Sell Yourself

Why not use that skill and make some money on Fiverr? Everything starts from $5

4) Keep Track and reduce your expenses
If you don't have the money to invest in some bitcoin or shares trading. Start with yourself. Keep track of your own expenses. Because, 'you don't know what you don't know'. Without keeping track of expenses, 1 or 2 fancy lunches or dinners may just be the cause of that big hole in your wallet! I use Monefy to keep track of my spending due to its 'idiot proof' functions and pleasing layouts. You can try that too.
If you are just too lazy to keep track of your expenses, another way is to do a money challenge. With the Automated challenge, just set a sum with your bank via online banking and close your eyes. At the end of the year, you will find yourself a little bit 'richer'.
