LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — According to the Department of Employment, Nevada holds the highest unemployment rate in the country.

The coronavirus wreaked havoc on health and the economy. As our city starts to bounce back, people are hoping their bank accounts do too.

You can start by putting that spring cleaning to use.

TopCashBack's personal finance expert Rebecca Gramuglia suggests trying to turn that pile of clothes you don't need into money.

"Revisit that pile right now and see if you can sell it online, whether it be eBay, Poshmark, Depop… have a virtual garage sale instead," Gramuglia said.

Don't have anything to sell? That's okay. As an online tutor for Vipkid, you can help teach English to students in China. You'll need a bachelor's degree and a stable internet connection.

Once you make a little money, you can save a little money too.

On sites like TopCashBack, you can get paid to shop online.

You can pick one of the listed retail stores and receive up to 15 percent of your money back.

"It's free to use, free to sign up, free to cash out. There's no catch," Gramuglia said.

If you want to ditch the couch and get active, apps like Sweatcoin reward you for working out.

DELIVERY FEES EAT INTO RESTAURANT PROFITS

"It runs in the background, and it collects your data, and you can convert your outdoor steps into currency. Sweatcoin is partnered with different products and services, and you can use that currency towards those items," Gramuglia said.

As always, you'll want to do your research and read the fine print on these apps and websites before signing up.
