Retired? Here Are 17 No-Cost Ways to Make Money on the Side. Retirees travel a lot, touring the world or seeing their children and friends. Those who live in big cities heavy in tourism or vacation destinations can rent out their houses, extra rooms or guest houses to travelers on Airbnb or a vacation rental site such as HomeAway. Joseph Carbone, a financial planner at Focus Planning Group based in Bayport, N.Y., said some of his retired clients “rent out their home for the whole summer.

Studies by researchers in the United Kingdom and Turkey illustrate that clothing has a massive impact in how we are judged. For instance, in a study where subjects examined images of a man in an off-the-rack suit and the same man in a made-to-measure suit, subjects rated the made-to-measure version of the man significantly higher in confidence, success, flexibility and income than the off-the-rack version. Clothing matters, and while you may not be able to afford tailor-made or high end attire, you may be able to have the clothes you already possess tailored and hemmed so that they fit your frame and appear sharp.
