THE SHARING ECONOMY
Nobody has to buy the same stuff over and over again.
Have a neighborhood you can always count on.
It is a common misconception that the person who “has it all” actually owns everything. Nobody has everything they need and there really is no need to buy everything in life that you need. To illustrate this I’m going to take it to the extreme and ask you a question: Do you need to own a parachute? Even though you may be one of the estimated 350,000 people who go skydiving every year chances are that you do not own your own parachute. When you are falling out of an airplane, do you think that a parachute is a “need”? Absolutely!! So why don’t you own one?
If you are like 99% of people then you do not own a parachute, but to a few people it is worth it to own one for themselves. Even if a person has the means to purchase a parachute and feels like jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, they can rent a parachute while they need it and return it when they are done. This is beneficial for numerous reasons and you could probably guess what most of them are:
- Skydiving gear can cost thousands of dollars to purchase. Unless you are going to be jumping out of an airplane on a regular basis it makes no sense to pay that much money for something you are going to only use every great once in a while.
- Seeing that your life will literally be hanging on the line of the parachute you don’t want to purchase it and let it sit inside your garage collecting dust 364 days a year. It needs to be taken out, used, and inspected on a regular basis.
- If you are only using it every once in a while, during the time you are not using it, it is just taking up valuable space inside your house/garage/car or wherever you decide to store it.
- The person/company who does purchase it and rent it out/shares it spends the time, money, and space to take care of the parachute. They do this because over time they end up making more money than they spent to purchase it.
That is an extreme example and we do not suggest if you own a parachute you rent it out, but the same idea can go for most things that we use on a semi-regular basis in life. There are countless times in everyone’s life where we purchase something and only use it a few times (or in the worst cases only once). Think about that specialty tool you bought for that project you worked on two years ago. Whether it was a carpentry tool, a sewing tool, automotive tool, or kitchen tool I would bank on it that you have some of those items sitting around. They are probably sitting inside your garage or closet collecting dust.
What if you could go back and borrow that tool from a friend for the one time you used it. It might depend on the price point of it, but chances are, you would. This is the sharing economy. We have all done it at some point and time. Some people more than others.
This is the reason MyGarageRentals.com exists, it gives us the opportunity to share with those around us. It expands our “friend” base who we can share with. We can now find those people around us who have the things we are only going to use one time. Now we don’t have to store it for the next 5 years until we finally decide that we realistically are never going to use it again and give it to Goodwill…

Save and Earn Money
Spend less if you’re considering doing these plans, most of the tools listed here are available for rent right here at My Garage Rentals. Renting the tools you don’t have instead of buying them will save you both money and space in your toolbox or your garage.
But, if you already have the tools you need, consider listing your excess tools for rent and earn extra cash from them. Take advantage of our services here at My Garage Rentals and you might just start a second stream of income for very little work. Avail of our services now, registration is very easy!
My Garage Rentals is a rent-anything peer-to-peer rental platform. Our services at My Garage Rentals allow you to rent almost anything you can find useful around your home, especially those things lying around your garage.
We’ve created a list to help you utilize our services to your full advantage, stuff you can rent out to make the most of while using My Garage Rentals:
Cameras and Camera Lenses
Cameras are everywhere and the majority of consumers are camera owners, whether that’s a camera from a smartphone or a digital camera. At some point, a person will be interested in a DSLR or mirrorless camera, it will eventually be one of the things your children will ask for when they hit high school or college.
If you’re an owner of a camera and camera lens, you should consider renting out to those just starting out in photography and to those that only need them temporarily. Your camera just might be what inspires them to push their photography dream forward and in the process, you enjoy some monetary gain.
This is especially true if you live in a place that lots of tourists visit. If they can rent a nice camera or even just a nice lens then they don’t have to haul a big camera bag onto the plane to travel with.
Do you still have that old home theater speaker set lying around? Or perhaps that Bluetooth speaker you don’t use anymore?
You’d be surprised, people would definitely rent those and they could be renting them from you. This is especially true if you have a setup that could be used for parties or large get-togethers and is semi-portable. Grab your Bluetooth speaker and list them up for rent today!
DIY and Gardening Tools
If you’re into DIY projects or maybe consider yourself a handyman, renting out your entire toolbox may just fund your next DIY project.
If it’s gardening you’re into, you’re probably an owner of a set of gardening tools. Consider renting your set of tools to earn money for your next yard project.
You have no idea how many times I needed a certain tool for just one specific project then wished I could give that tool returned at the store. Think about those specialty tools that you bought and don’t use very often. Is it an aerator, or a 36-inch rake, or even a plumbing tool to get into that one hard-to-reach spot in the house?
Lawn Mowers, Leaf Blowers and Snow Blowers
Yard maintenance can be hard work, but more than that, it can be expensive work due to the machinery you will need to get your yard the best look it can get.
This is why, when it’s Fall and time to blow away those leaves, rent it out; if it’s Winter, rent out a snowblower. When would you need a lawnmower anyway? Not every day, so rent yours out while it’s sitting in the shack.
Instruments and Amplifiers
The best instruments will most likely cost you a whole lot, and not to mention the equipment that goes along with it, i.e. amplifiers and speakers, will cost you just the same. The problem is it can be such a waste when a person buys an instrument out of excitement only to be tired of it and tosses it aside to collect dust.
This is why it would be more beneficial for a beginner to borrow an instrument first before investing in one. If you own an instrument you no longer regularly use, consider having it rented, and not only will you be earning money, but you’d also be helping out a beginner in need.
Laptops and Computers
Have you ever experienced working on something so important when suddenly your laptop’s screen goes blue and dies? The worst part is, that work is due to be completed the next day. Good thing the document is saved in the cloud. All your problem now is to get your laptop to work.
Maybe you haven’t experienced that, but someone in this world may have and you would be a lifesaver if you had a laptop you barely used lying around your home you could lend out. Your laptop would be a moneymaker and a lifesaver, how about that?
Let’s be honest, the majority of people after they’ve finished reading their books, most likely end up stacking them on top of their shelves, never again to be read; or dump them in the trash, to be later destroyed forever.
But your books don’t have to be wasted space or wasted in the trash. It will save someone a whole lot if you rented out some of the books you have lying around. Bestsellers usually cost a whole lot, so if you own one you could earn from renting it out to others.
You may argue that libraries do this for free, so why should you bother. Well believe it or not even libraries have their limitations. Some are poorly stocked. Some don’t have very good hours for a busy person. And some are just not located within a reasonable distance.
Outdoor Sports Equipment
If you asked me how much a snowboard or a surfboard costs, I would guess it is most likely expensive and that’s because it is. If you’re an owner of a snowboard, surfboard, or any other outdoor sports gear then you know they cost you a ton.
Why not earn back what you spent from all of those expenditures from your outdoor sports gear? I suggest renting out those that you no longer use regularly.
Think again about those people who may not be from the area. They are traveling and may not want to travel with the big and bulky equipment for the one single week they will be in your town on vacation. You could easily service them. They save money compared to renting the equipment from a brick and mortar rental shop and you make some money with almost no work.
Video Game Consoles and Discs
Not everyone can afford the next-gen consoles, as they can be rather expensive these days; therefore, most people would rather borrow a console from their friends or neighbors instead.
Your friend or neighbor might want to borrow your next-gen console, but if you could use the cash, implore them to rent it from you instead. Utilize My Garage Rentals’ services to rent out your gadgets and games.
Kitchen appliances such as microwave ovens, blenders, food processors, portable toasters, portable grills, and even portable stoves are a great idea to rent out.
For this category, your customers may consist mostly of college students. But, if you know anyone in your neighborhood in temporary need of a kitchen appliance, take the opportunity to have them rent yours. Believe it or not, there are entire businesses that revolve around this. Why not join in on some of their profits?
According to an article by GOBankingRates (How Much Do Americans Spend on Halloween?) Americans spent $3.2 billion on costumes in 2019, or around $31 per person, as per the NRF.
These statistics can be overwhelming and it might even make you think twice before buying a new costume for Halloween or for a party. But with the help of My Garage Rentals, you don’t have to feel bad about the old costumes you had to buy and now only have to lie around.
Rent your old costumes to make money or on the other side of the coin, if you’re looking to buying a new costume, you can make the right choice to rent one instead from your neighbor.
Record Player and Vinyls
Record players and vinyl aren’t as popular as they used to be back in the old days but are still widely used especially for music fanatics.
Not everyone will have access to vinyl and record players, but if you have them, you might be doing some of them a favor by renting yours out, and in the process, you’ll be making money.
Lights (Laser Lights, Studio Lights, Fairy Lights, Christmas Lights, etc.)
Everyone needs good light, whether that’s for a photo shoot, a video shoot, or just for decoration, a good light will improve and beautify a place’s ambiance.
Depending on the light, a person may decide to rent them over buying them, this may be true for those that are just looking for temporary use for their photo or film productions, parties, gatherings, and the like.
If you own any type of light you believe could be useful and rentable, by all means, grab them and have them rented today.
Portable Back-up Generator
Portable backup generators can be hard to come by and they can, like most on this list, be rather pricey. So if you just so happen to own one, then this is your ticket to making a few more bucks today!
There are several reasons people rent generators. The most common is parties and events. But then there are the events that require a generator such as longer-term power outages. If you happen to have a spare generator it will be a hot ticket item for anyone who wants to keep power to part of their house.
Projector and Projector Screen
Projectors are a great idea to have rented out since you probably don’t even use them regularly. It will definitely do you more good to list it for rent than to have it sit idly by when you or your family don’t use it.
Projectors are very useful and I can think of a ton of ideas why people would want to rent them, so hesitate no more and get that projector of yours listed right away!
Got stuff for your pets you no longer use but are afraid to throw in the trash? Why don’t you give those out for rent? Here are some examples of pet things your neighbors will find useful to rent for their pets:
- Pet toys
- Cat or dog houses
- Easy-clean litter box
- Food bowls
At this point you would probably be asking, why would anyone want to rent out gym equipment and not just go to the gym? Firstly, not everyone’s confident enough to go to the gym on their first try. So a beginner would preferably want to try things out at home first where they will not be worried.
So if you’ve got a little bit of gym equipment, more preferably for beginners, you’ll be doing novices a great favor by renting those out to them. It’ll save them the fear of a beginner’s embarrassment and benefit your wallet at the same time.
Cooler or Ice Chest
I can’t tell you how many times I went on an outing with the family and suddenly realized we needed a cooler or an ice chest but did not bring one because we didn’t think we would need one.
Some people might just be like me, too stingy to even buy a cooler or ice chest for themselves. Also, think of those who live in a small apartment and don’t have room to store such a bulky item. They still use them when they go to the park or the beach or on vacation. So, it would also be a great idea to throw in your Coleman cooler or whatever branded cooler you have up for rent.
You might not need your bike anymore, but someone might just be looking to use one right now. Bikes are an amazing tool for travel.
The best thing about bikes is you exercise as you use them. But, not only do you promote good health by having them rented out, but you also save the earth a tiny bit from producing any more gas emissions since it doesn’t run on gasoline.
There is a lot more you can rent out, you just have to be creative and look around your home. You might be surprised how many items, tools, and appliances people would rather rent than buy.

zBoth money and time are very valuable resources. The main difference between the two is that you cannot get back time, making time a much more important asset.
While there aren’t any shortcuts to long-term success, there are still ways you can quickly make a buck or two without having to spend too much of your precious time.
Here are some ways you can make money fast with just a little time:
Sell Something You Already Have
One way you can make money instantly is by selling your old stuff to your neighbors or to people you know nearby.
Is your closet filled with old clothes and old shoes? Perhaps you have video games, old sports equipment, old musical instruments you don’t need anymore? Have your shelves been cluttered with old books you will most probably no longer get back to?
Look around your room, look around your garage, check your entire house. Grab those old items that you have had for so long, just sitting collecting dust, and turn them instead to cash.
How does that old saying go? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Rent Things You Have Lying Around Your House
Now, if you have tools, equipment, appliances, and other items you don’t use daily but couldn’t find it in you to sell them, perhaps consider renting them out.
Using My Garage Rentals is one of the fastest ways to rent out your items. It is simple and easy to use. My Garage Rentals also provides a secure way to rent out your item since it requires a security deposit for every rental. Moreover, it ensures its users a $1000 guarantee for lost or broken items.
My Garage Rentals is a peer-to-peer rental platform that aims to keep you connected with your local community, make renting faster, and allows you to make money almost instantly.
Offer to do Chores for Price
You can make some instant cash in the comfort of your own home without having to go through job applications and interviews.
Just look around for any household chores you can do, then ask the people you’re living with for a fee for doing them. You can go so far as to do even your neighbor’s chores, with just a little convincing, they will surely agree.
For quick and easy money, doing household chores shouldn’t come as a challenge to you since you’ve been doing it most of your life, especially in your childhood.
Use Uber or Lyft
Nothing says, “make money fast with little time” like Uber or Lyft. It doesn’t take too long to set up an account, register your vehicle, and get passengers to pay you.
These apps may as well be one of the fastest ways to make a quick buck these days and all you have to do is drive.
What’s more, despite the pandemic, Uber and Lyft are still widely used. There are, of course, safety protocols that must be followed to ensure health measures; but, knowing these two corporate giants, security is assured.
So what are you waiting for? Buckle up and get going already!
If you have the patience, the skills, and the knowledge to teach someone in an area you excel at; whether that’s in Math, Science, playing musical instruments, or speaking a foreign language, that could be used to your advantage.
Take the opportunity of excelling at something in tutoring a student in your neighborhood to make money fast with the little time you have.
Use social media by messaging your neighborhood group pages and market your services to them there to get started quickly.
Wash or Repair Someone’s Car or Appliances
Are you knowledgeable about car parts and how they work? Do you know anyone like me who knows squat about them? Well then, another way you can make money instantly is to offer what you know as services to those car illiterates nearby.
Or maybe you’re more into electronics such as appliances like television or washing machines. You can save your neighbors the hassle of going to the repair shop and paying more than they should by offering your services to them.
Or if you’re anything like me who knows nothing about repairing electronics, you can offer to wash your neighbor’s and friend’s cars for a quick and easy fee.
Help Elders with their Phones
Let’s face it. Most elders aren’t simply good with their smartphones. It can be challenging for them and could oftentimes just send them into a spiral of confusion.
You can use what you know to update their smartphone’s firmware, install apps for them, set up accounts for their socials or emails, and if your knowledge is capable, even repair their phones for profit.
You don’t even have to limit yourself to the elderly; as long as the person is smartphone illiterate, you can apply what you know and generate some income from it.
Bake or Cook Something to Sell
Do you consider yourself a good cook or even a decent baker? Get your work out there and sell them to your friends and neighbors nearby!
Take advantage of every social media you’re on and market your masterpiece there to sell. Because of the pandemic, a lot of people have done this and have succeeded more in selling their goods online than when they tried otherwise.
The more social media accounts you have, the better your chances, that’s depending on how many followers you have of course. Include mouthwatering photos of your food and pastries to keep your followers curious and wanting more.
Setup a Video Game Tournament
This next way to make money fast with little time can be a lot of fun and competitive, and it’s to set up a video game tourney with a cash prize and everything.
As long as you have a video game console to use (more preferably the latest next-generation consoles), the willingness to organize a tournament with pot money, a scoring system, and a proper set of rules, you are more than ready to start.
It shouldn’t be at all too hard to find participants to join your tournament. Everyone loves a little video game competition. Posting on social media to promote your tournament will also help big time in getting people to be part of your tournament.
Baby Sit or Pet Sit
Ask around your neighborhood if they need any on-the-spot babysitting or pet sitting. Offer your services and get instant cash at the end of the day.
Like I’ve been mentioning over and over in this article, taking advantage of social media will come as a benefit in promoting your services, including your babysitting or pet sitting services.
If you’re an animal lover or good with kids, then this won’t even come off as work for you at all, go and give it a try. It might even be something you’ll enjoy.
Offer to Shave/Cut Family Member’s Hair
You could offer your family member or a neighbor a private haircut in their homes, convince them that it is easier than having to go all the way to town to get a haircut.
It shouldn’t be hard to learn how to shave or cut someone’s hair. All it takes is a quick research on YouTube to learn the basics.
It could post as a challenge to convince people to accept your services if you lack the experience; it’s their hair we’re talking about, after all. So, you may have to do some hard persuasion if you’re not too experienced yet with cutting hair, or instead, you may choose to start with your family members at home.
Set a Movie Night
Not everyone has the privilege to subscribe to live streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Disney+.
Hence, you can make money fast with little time by utilizing your subscription. Ask for donations from your friends or neighbors to “Netflix and Chill” with you.
You can also use the watch party feature of Facebook or screen share via Zoom to live stream movies with your friends and neighbors.
A short disclaimer: make sure you aren’t selling movies illegally in any way. We suggest you try this approach only once or twice, just enough to get the money you need. If done multiple times, it could lead to criminal charges due to piracy. We’re not promoting piracy. We are only suggesting that you ask for donations.
Livestream (Busking or Gaming)
Speaking of donations, another way to make money fast with little time is by live-streaming your video games or musical performances.
With the help of Facebook Gaming and Twitch, receiving donations for video game live streams is made simpler. And because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the same is now also true for street-performing or busking.
With the help of your colleagues, friends, and neighbors online, making money should be easy. Sending out invitations and sharing to social media will help tremendously bring traffic to your live stream.

If you’ve been following our blogs, you may have read our recent article about Getting Started on Your Own Second Stream of Income.
We mentioned in that article the value of time in this area and how starting up your second stream of income may cost you a lot of it.
You will be forced to make and sacrifice time for the benefit of your second source of cash flow. And because time is such a big deal when it comes to landing a second stream of income, we thought it deserved an entire article all to itself.
Read on, we hope that this article will help you with your endeavor for achieving multiple streams of income:
Write Down Your Daily Schedule
“Writing things down makes your mind more efficient by helping you focus on the truly important stuff” Mark Murphy, a New York Best Selling author, said in a 2018 article published by Forbes.
Writing down your schedule on a piece of paper gives you a visible and tangible picture of how your new routine will look.
This will also allow you to see, looking forward, which activities consume the most time and which ones are worth sacrificing for your new job.
Determine The Number Of Work Hours
It’s important to determine, based on your second stream of income, how many hours you will need to spend on it.
For instance, some type of work may really require you a whole 8 hours of work while others won’t necessarily require that long.
Determining the required work hours will help us know whether including your newfound work into your daily schedule is attainable.
“If you’re working with long-term goals, use the ABC’s to schedule [them]. A is for [it] has to be done today, B is for [it] would be nice and C is for if I were my most awesome version of myself. Update the goals before bed so you wake up ready to roll the next day,” says Lloyd from Bustle.com.
Cross Out Activities You’re Willing to Sacrifice
If your second job requires you to work more hours than you had hoped, you may need to sacrifice a few of your usual leisurely activities to make room for work.
Note that you don’t necessarily have to eliminate completely a certain activity off your routine, just lessening the time used is efficient enough.
One thing to look forward to as you scrape off unnecessary time is that in the long run, if you work hard enough, your streams may just turn into passive income, giving you the time scraped off back.
Choose Your Off-Limits Activities
Alright, so there are some activities you really can’t let go of. So, choose the activities that are off-limits to you.
Some activities that may be hard to let go of could be some of your hobbies and passions, and it’s perfectly understandable that you don’t scratch these out.
These are the hobbies that fuel your desire to keep working. Studies show that a large percentage of people lose interest in their work if it interferes with their own personal hobbies.
Other than your hobbies, it is important that you allow time for rest and family as well.
It will be difficult for you to keep up with dues and your own deadlines if your mind, body, and soul haven’t had that well-needed rest and time with the family.
Commit and Stay Consistent
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle
Really committing to your new schedule will require self-discipline. Success, after all, is built from consistency.
Tony Fahkry said in an article on Medium that, “Consistency builds character and sharpens the mind. Consistent people are triumphant, with an unyielding inner drive.”
According to Tony Fahkry, consistency and persistency are the two key ingredients to success, staying true to your word and sticking with your regimen will evidently produce progress.
Get Side-Tracked Once In A While
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” – Maya Angelou
People will always tell you that it’s okay to get side-tracked, and they’re absolutely right.
Setbacks are bound to arise but your journey to success shouldn’t end there. Setbacks are there to help you learn and grow, they aren’t there to keep you down.
You will find yourself recommitting to your new schedule again and again, more often than not. Do not let this discourage you but rather see it as an opportunity to be persistent and a sign of progress.
Use Our Platform As a Stream of Income
My Garage Rentals can be a great addition to your streams of income and it won’t even require much of your time!
Scan your household for things that you believe could be rented by others and have them rented out yourself.
Think of us as your own personal rental store. My Garage Rentals can be a stream of passive income. Just rent your item out and wait for the cash to come flowing in.
And because it’s so simple and easy, you wouldn’t have to worry about sacrificing your schedule or any of your valuable leisurely time to make way for this.
Having more than one stream of income holds a whole lot of benefits.
If there’s one lesson this pandemic has taught us, it’s that jobs and businesses can be fragile.
The response of almost every government around the world to COVID-19 has surely taken its toll on our businesses and while our economy is gradually getting back up on its feet, this doesn’t ensure us our jobs and businesses complete protection in the case of another recession such as this.
So, it is best to be prepared with multiple streams of income to keep you backed up in case one of them crashes down, God forbid.
But before you go jumping into figuring out how to start-up your next stream of income, it is only practical that you consider these three overriding points:
This is a common thing to neglect to keep in mind when looking to set up a new stream of income.
Do you have time to dedicate to your new supply of income? What are some things that take up most of your time? Do you think you can give up some of those activities that are less important to make room for your secondary source of income?
A lot of people jump right in head first, not recognizing that all of this will come at the cost of time, no matter the type of income source you’re looking to set up.
Some sources of income will cost less time while others will cost more. Some will have a better ROT (Return On Your Time) whereas others may have less.
Are you willing to add another 8 hours a day for your secondary source of income, doubling your current work time? It may seem hard to think about it now, but in the long run, it might turn out to actually be quite worth it.
So take some time to pause and think about it. Discern within yourself how much time you have to sacrifice. Do you have 8 hours a day? Or 4? Or only 1 hour a day? Write it down. It is important to know and keep at the front of your mind while making your decisions. This leads us to our next point:
Every successful stream of income comes with some sacrifice. There will come a time where you will have to make a decision, whether you will give something up like your own comfort, a personal hobby, time (which we’ve mentioned above), money, or even pride.
Yes, there will be times you will have to lower your pride, which is something we humans have a hard time letting go of. You will come across a situation where you will have to set aside your ego and ask help from others, whether that’s monetary support, physical labor, or asking “stupid” questions to “smart” people to try and solve a problem, or anything in between.
What are some things you think are worth sacrificing for your second stream of income? Think about it and prepare to build up the strength to let it go.
On the other hand, it’s also important that you think about what you would absolutely not be willing to sacrifice. Write it down and keep it somewhere close. This way when the day comes that you are asked to sacrifice that thing you can remember what is most important.
Passive or Active
One other thing to ask yourself as you seek a second stream of income is, what kind are you looking for? Are you looking for a passive or active stream of income?
Active income pertains to income obtained by actively performing services. It typically takes up your time and energy. Passive income pertains to earnings received from work that doesn’t require any physical involvement. It is income that is created whether you are actively participating or not.
Most people dream of having their second stream of income to be passive, not realizing there are still some things to look out for when dabbling into this type of income.
The thing is, each type of income comes with its own expense. Seeking a passive stream of income may require you a different set of objectives as compared to that of the active income, which may or may not be suitable for what you hoped.
Passive income will often take time to grow. It won’t happen overnight as compared to active income where you put in 8 extra hours of work and you are immediately paid for those 8 hours.
Bottom line is that it’s always good to think ahead, it prepares you for what you will possibly have to face. It will make it easier to make decisions on where you want to come up with your second stream of income.
With all that said, here are just a few ways you can add to your current stream of income:
Getting a Job
Getting multiple jobs at a time can be difficult, but for some, it can be easy. This, of course, depends on numerous factors. There are certain things to consider and questions you need to ask yourself before you go and pursue a second line of work such as, “do you have this certain skill set?” or “what is your educational background?”
Often a second job will be during odd hours and may not be as well paying as a “professional” job, but may provide that extra boost you are looking for.
This is obviously a more active way to earn money and will come at the cost and sacrifice of your time. But as we mentioned above this is a simpler and quicker way to earn money for the effort you put in.
Investing is a great way to prepare you for the long-run. Investing is typically thought of as a much more passive way to create income, but this will depend on what you are investing in. For the sake of this article we will narrow the categories to the big and well known ones: real estate, insurance, dividends and stocks.
Before you invest in something, definitely do a lot of research on where you plan to invest. There are countless companies worth investing in, it just takes a little bit of hard-looking to find the right ones. But if you don’t get the proper education and do the proper research you could end up losing what you have invested in.
Investing will usually start out as an active way to earn as you are learning, but will transition into a much more passive way to earn as time passes. It will come with the cost of sacrificing your time and money up front. You won’t be able to spend that money on the newest gadget you have had your eye on. Instead you are going to have to wait for your money to grow. As time passes, investing will require less from you and will be a more passive form of income.
Start an Online Business
It’s all the rage these days. Since the pandemic, a lot of physical stores and restaurants had to shut down and we had to suffer a lockdown. Thankfully this all happened during the era of the internet, making the process of selling through an online store as easy as 1-2-3.
There are two ways to get your business going online, that’s either to set up your own personal website or to sell your products out on e-commerce platforms.
You can set-up your own personal website through online platforms like WordPress, Squarespace, and GoDaddy. The advantage of making your own website includes controlling your own design and layout, and widening the variety of your inventory.
You can also choose to sell on e-commerce websites such as Amazon, Etsy, Facebook Marketplace, and more. There are a lot of benefits to utilizing e-commerce websites to sell your products like you wouldn’t have to worry about coding and designing your own website anymore.
Making income from an online shop will take some patience as it will require a huge portion of your time and effort, just as you would with a physical shop.
Stream or Upload Content
Thanks to media sites like Youtube, Twitch, and Tiktok, you can make money out of your own hobbies and interests.
We all know by now that people have become celebrities and millionaires only through Youtube and Twitch.
And all it really takes to get started is a desire to create and the motivation to keep pushing through.
Making money out of websites like Youtube won’t promise instant success, in fact, it will take you a whole lot of time and effort before you can really start making money off of these platforms.
Whether you’re a writer, a graphic designer, or a voice actor; finding a freelance part-time job is easy and we highly recommend you give it a try to include it as your second source of income.
Websites like Upwork, LinkedIn, and VoiceBunny are great platforms when it comes to freelancing.
Side-line freelancing will come at the cost of your skills, ideas, and efforts. The amount of pay will also depend on the type of work you’re in.
Rent Your Properties
Suffering from a cluttered garage? Is your car just sitting idly by? Renting out your personal property is another great way to add to your income.
Renting out your belongings is an example of a passive income, not having to actively perform in any way but to just passively allowing the cash to flow in. The great thing about this is it does not take the upfront cost of your money. Instead you can do it with just the things you already own. While you are out there spending your time working your belongings that normally sit in the garage are now spending their time working for your sake.
Consider renting your things with us at My Garage Rentals, we allow you to rent out almost anything, just make sure that others will find it useful to rent. Whether that’s your appliance, tools, camera gear, or even your clothing, you can list it for rent at My Garage Rentals.

Accumulating material possessions has always been an issue of the human heart since the beginning of time.
It has come to a point where we’ve accumulated too much stuff that we no longer know what to do with our things.
And then renting came into the picture. People found a way to make use of the many things they already have at home, with the benefit of earning and saving money in the process.
The first known rental happened in the 1930s when a truck seller rented his truck to a customer who only needed it for a day.
And thus, rental shops emerged and gradually spread around the globe and even evolved to the online rental shops we use today.
If your question is, “Why should I rent? Why don’t I just buy?” We’ve written down 20 reasons that might just convince you to rent.
Why Should I Rent?
1. It’s cheaper to rent than to buy something brand new.
2. And because it is cheaper, renting can help with financial deficiency. For example, if an individual could not afford to buy a house, they should consider renting.
3. Additionally, it gives you the opportunity to experience using expensive and luxurious products that may be difficult to afford.
4. Moreso, renting allows you to save money and can help with your budget planning. Thus, it is considered a frugal practice to rent.
5. When you need something only temporarily, like a tool, a car, a commercial space, and more, we recommend renting.
6. Renting will save you space around the house since the item isn’t yours and will be returned, you wouldn’t have to worry about where to pack it when it is not in use.
7. Less waste is dumped if you choose to rent. About 1,980,262,621 of waste and counting are being dumped worldwide this year.
8. Renting gives you the freedom to try out different hobbies before you truly pursue them. You can rent musical instruments, photography equipment, sports gear, and much more, most of which can be quite costly investments.
9. Maintenance and repairs are not going to be an issue.
10. You don’t have to worry about durability and lifespan either.
11. Renting out your own items will allow for extra income and keep your things from remaining idle at home.
12. It doesn’t just allow for extra income, it will also eventually pay you back and cross over the original value of the product, making it as if you got the item for free, to begin with.
13. Thanks to online rental shops, you can rent at the comfort of your own home and with just the tapping of buttons.
14. Online rental is a big contributor to the sharing economy, which is an important factor to keep in mind since almost everything revolves around the sharing economy these days.
15. If you’re looking to buy something brand new, you might want to review the item first, and renting that item can help you with that. Renting will assist you in deciding whether that particular product is worth purchasing at full price or not.
16. Renting provides you access to a wide collection of media such as books, comics, music, and movies. You can finally read the whole Harry Potter series or watch the whole Matrix trilogy without having to buy them at their standard price.
17. Did you know that renting dogs is a thing? By doing so, you can gauge whether owning one is really for you or if it’s companionship is just something you need occasionally.
18. Thanks to peer-to-peer rentals like Airbnb and VRBO, traveling out of town and finding accommodation elsewhere is made easier.
19. Renting promotes sharing.
20. 43 Million Americans rent, according to a study by Harvard.

What is the Sharing Economy?
Also known as the gig economy or collaborative consumption, the Sharing Economy is an economic structure that allows individuals to share resources with other fellow individuals with the help of an on-line platform.
The Sharing Economy has been around for over a decade now and we can find examples in the likes of Airbnb and Uber, to name a couple.
We will delve into where the sharing economy is now and how much it has grown throughout the years. In this article, we will learn how the sharing economy will look moving forward into the future.
The Sharing Economy’s Persecution: Criticism
Before the sharing economy got to where it is now, it had to go through a ton of skepticism and backlash. Airbnb and Uber, for example, both had to experience lawsuit after lawsuit from government sectors not just in the United States but in other countries as well.
For instance, in 2017, Uber was forced to terminate its services in the Philippines over the case of unregistered drivers.
Airbnb also experienced legal struggles of their own, such as in Australia in 2018 when NSW passed two laws against them.
The Sharing Economy’s Contribution: Benefits
A primary advantage that the sharing economy contributes to is that it allows its consumers to share their extra stuff, vehicles, space, time, services, and talents through peer-to-peer renting and outsourcing platforms.
Participants are thus given the opportunity to earn income their own way and on the other end, enjoy more affordable access to products and services with budget-friendly alternatives.
The sharing economy also allows more flexible options for consumers to choose from, no longer are they restricted to big brands and expensive hotels when they can rent products and rent homes overnight.
This system also opens up leverage for job seekers to be able to find work that is in-line with their skills and career choice and likewise, it helps business owners find employees easier than ever before.
More benefits include contributing to the battle against material waste and creating unity and trust in the communities.
One more idea to keep in mind is that the sharing economy has technically been around for centuries, it was when times were simpler and there weren’t yet any big brands that hindered people from trading and selling with one another their personal belongings and self-cultivated goods.
But, with the help of technology, the public is given yet again an ecosystem wherein independent trade is possible.
It Comes in Different Types
The sharing economy consists of an enterprise of two types; non-profit and commercial.
Platforms that offer free online courses and learning materials are examples of the non-profit side of the sharing economy.
The commercial types of platforms are where companies provide certain services and secondary products to consumers for affordable prices.
Here are a few examples of different kinds of commercial-type services and websites:
- Freelance and Outsourcing – These are platforms that offer freelancers easy access to job applications fitting their specific skills. These sites also allow businesses and companies seamless outsourcing. Upwork and LinkedIn are two of the big examples of freelancing and outsourcing websites. They have been around for a while now and have dominated the online job application industry.
- Peer to Peer Lending – Big names such as Uber and Airbnb fall under this category, but there are definitely others more. Peer-to-peer lending refers to platforms that offer rental services to those looking to make use of the belongings they have lying around their house. It’s a great way to make money and save money at the same time.
- Fashion – Rent the Runway, Dress for Less, and The Black Tux are fashion websites that offer clothing for rent. These places are specially made for those hoping to spend less on high priced clothing brands only for a certain duration.
What does The Sharing Economy look like moving forward?
The sharing economy has been growing exponentially over the years, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. According to an article by Brookings India, people in the sharing economy will possibly be spending $335 billion by 2025 in the United States alone.
Whether we like it or not, our economy is evolving, we could be seeing more services and categories emerge in the times ahead, providing the general consumers a more convenient, accessible, and affordable economic system.
Our platform, My Garage Rentals, also falls under the peer-to-peer category; but we prefer the term neighbor-to-neighbor, which boasts of our aim to build a trustworthy rental community, which allows a more secure and faster transaction for both the renter and the lender.

Thanksgiving is drawing near and most of us are already fixated on cooking our turkey the classic oven-baked way.
Your neighbors, on the other hand, may be interested in experimenting this year with different methods.
While there are indeed other ways of preparing Thanksgiving turkey, these creative ways will require certain kitchen appliances to make them possible to prep for.
We’ve listed said kitchen appliances and if you own any of these, you can earn a little extra this year by convincing your neighbors to rent them from you for Thanksgiving dinner.
The most unhealthy way, out of all the appliances, to cook a turkey; a deep fryer will give your Thanksgiving bird the crispiest texture and the juiciest taste that no other appliance can create. You may not be interested in giving your turkey an oil bath this year, but your neighbors might just want to give your deep fryer a try.
The air fryer is a great way to get your turkey crispy and moist but without the need for added oil. Its convection heating mechanism causes a circulation of heated air to surround your food, giving it that same result a deep-fryer would make but with less fat, making it a healthier alternative to deep-frying.
No other kitchen appliance will give you that smokey yet moist and flavorful turkey dinner than the griller. It also gives the fellas a chance to talk about football over some beers while allowing the missus to chit chat with the rest of the ladies in the kitchen.
To allow your turkey to come out nice and tender, we highly recommend you give the slow cooker a shot. It may just take some time to prepare as a down-side, but it will all be worth it in the end. Also, a great way to make the perfect turkey stew is through a slow cooker, just so you know.
Water bathing your turkey is also another fantastic way to give your turkey that tender juicy flavor without having to incorporate any additional grease. The only con being that sous-vide machines are expensive, so not everyone will be privileged enough to experience sous-viding their turkey. If you won’t be sous-viding your turkey this year, consider renting yours to a neighbor who’s interested in trying out a fresh new style of cooked turkey.
My Garage Rentals is a neighbor-to-neighbor platform that allows you to easily have your personal belongings rented to those around you.
This coming Thanksgiving is an opportunity for you to make some money if you’re willing to lend out your appliances for rent. Our platform is the perfect tool to assist you in making smooth and secure transactions with your neighbors.
Sign up is absolutely free and we assure you security with our $1000 guarantee for any damaged or stolen item done while using My Garage Rentals! Click here now to visit My Garage Rentals to get started!
Money never comes easily, especially for college students, or any kind of student for that matter.
Usually only living off of minimum wage salaries or off of parent’s allowance, it can be quite the challenge for the average student to budget and save.
Nothing screams economical more than renting. In contrast to buying, renting is most certainly the cheaper approach.
Whether you’re a college student or a parent of one, this list might just be for you. As you read on, we hope that you find something useful to take away from this article.
1. Laptop and Tablet
An obvious essential for every student; and yes, laptops and tablets can be rented.
If you already own a laptop and/or a tablet, renting may not come to you as something useful yet at the moment.
But when the time comes and your device unfortunately breaks down, you may want to consider renting, just until you get your old one repaired or have enough to spend on a new one.
Every student will eventually have to read and study a book, whether that’s for reference or just for something to enjoy and pass the time.
While books can be conveniently read digitally nowadays, there are still plentiful benefits to reading them the old-fashioned way.
For instance, there is no UV lighting to expose your eyes to radiation; and then there’s the satisfyingly smooth feel of the ivory paper texture and the crisp sound of every page flip.
3. Musical Instruments
Whether your course revolves around music or not, it’s always a good idea to have a personal musical instrument within arm’s reach.
Learning to play a musical instrument exercises the brain by creating new neural pathways to help improve brain growth, which can result in creativity and motivation for productivity.
Playing the guitar and other musical instruments can also help calm the mind, alleviating stress, and depression.
4. DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras
DSLR and Mirrorless cameras are expensive and don’t even get me started on lenses and the vast variety of camera accessories.
Owning a camera is a real investment, it’s not something you just throw your money at willy-nilly. You have to make an extensive thought first before pursuing photography or film.
While you’re still saving up for a camera of your own, perhaps consider renting first and observe whether or not this field certainly captures your passion.
5. Gym, Sports and Athletic Gear
The expenses that come with buying sports gear might discourage a lot of students, especially those looking to get fit and try out sports for the first time.
You shouldn’t let this hindrance stop you from getting in shape and staying healthy. You can always opt to rent sports equipment first until you can finally afford to invest in your own gear.
6. Live-stream Gear
We’re living in an age of streaming. We stream our movies, concerts, music, and our favorite shows; students even now have to attend their classes through live-streaming.
With the help of platforms like Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook Gaming, students can stream their creative content online with the potential of earning.
Full live-stream equipment can be costly overall, but with the help of renting, students can begin their live-streaming dreams much sooner than they think.
7. Video Game Console
We can argue all we want on whether or not video games are a bad influence on the youth, but it won’t dismiss the fact that a ton of research shows there are great benefits in gaming.
Other than some of the mental and emotional benefits of playing video games, students can also profit from it by pursuing a career in E-sports and video game live-streaming.
8. Portable Fridge, AC, Microwave, Vacuum, and Other Appliances
Some dorms and apartments may already provide appliances like microwaves and refrigerators, but this is not true for others, those that don’t may encourage you to rent appliances.
If you’re one of those, already provided with these appliances, you may resort to renting when the time comes that these machines suddenly give in and break.
When this unfortunate event does occur, do not go and buy one brand-new right away. Having it sent to the repairman and renting one as you wait for it can help you save more.
Decorating is a great way for students to express their creativity in their own respective dorm rooms. Tell me, when was the last time you saw a dorm room without any decorations on it?
The only hassle in constantly decorating is that it’ll cost you, especially when there’s another holiday coming up in the succeeding month, or if you suddenly needed a new backdrop for a vlog you were recording.
Thankfully, there are websites like My Garage Rentals that offer neighbor to neighbor rentals, making it easy and affordable to switch from one holiday decoration to another.
10. Bike or Car for Transportation
Just because your friends have cars doesn’t mean you should go and spend all your savings on one in one fell swoop.
You have to consider your priorities first and if buying a car isn’t on the top of your list, you might want to re-think getting one right away.
Fortunately, you can still enjoy good and comfortable transportation without having to compromise your savings, and yes, that’s by renting.
My Garage Rentals is an online platform that offers neighbor to neighbor rentals, allowing its users to connect with a community of lenders within their local area, making finding the perfect item to rent easy.
Unlike the rest of the rental platforms mentioned in this article, My Garage Rentals offers its users the ability to rent almost anything, boasting not just one specific category but a wide variety to rent from.
You can also earn and start your own rental service with us by enlisting your items up for rent. You control the duration and the amount of security deposit, owners are eligible for a $1000 guarantee for damaged items, and sign up is absolutely free!
