I made $230 for about 10 minutes of work from home!
I’m from Louisiana, and my husband from Indiana makes the best crawfish I have ever had. That’s why I married him! I mean really how can a farm boy from Indiana know how to boil crawfish better than the cajuns I grew up with?!? He’s paradoxical, and I love him. But I’m not writing a love story…
So naturally we own a crawfish boil set up (huge pot with strainer, gas burner, big ice chest, etc,). It all sits in our garage 364 days per year unused. I decided to post it and a few other things on Loanables.
Last month, I rented it out 3 times! I’ve already rented it more than that this month, too, but that’s not included in my $230! (April is actually more but I’ll save that for another post). Here’s what I rented out in March:
Crawfish boil stuff at 40/night. I rented it twice for 2 nights, and once for one night = $200
Table at $10
2 pop up canopies/tents at $20.
The day of, I texted the person renting and said it’d be outside my garage. They could leave money under my doormat (until someone pointed out I don’t have one), via PayPal, Venmo or the Square Cash. They sent money, picked it up and dropped it off. I never even saw them, though I did enjoy the occasional picture/video of them using it. It made me feel good, plus I got money for something that has literally been sitting in my garage for over 10 years doing nothing but collecting dust.
If you have a set-up that someone can pick up and easily have a party, it will rent frequently. Comment or email me if you want help!
I’m on a rental high,
