If you're looking for tips on how to make money fast, you're fortunate because selling scrap metal is one of the easiest ways to get some fast cash. Simply collect metal items, and take them to the scrap yard where an attendant will weigh them and pay you according the load's weight. If you're wondering where or how to find scrap metal, you have multiple options.

1. Make money fast with unwanted metal items you already have at home. Take inventory of what you have in and around your home. For instance, look for unwanted iron furniture or decorating items, such as wall décor, picture frames or candle holders. In the kitchen you might find unwanted skillets or aluminum pots and pans. Instead of throwing them away, turn them into some fast cash.

2. Clean out your garage. Look for rims/wheels, aluminum siding, pieces of aluminum tubing, barb wire, fence or window frames that you can sell to get fast cash.

3. Take note of unwanted lawn furniture, swing sets or patio sets. If you have an old clunker taking up space in your back yard, turn it into fast cash. Don't forget that broken appliances, such as refrigerators, freezers, washers/dryers and stoves can also help you make money fast.

4. Call your friends and family members. Let them know that you need to make money fast and you're looking for unwanted metal items that you can turn into fast cash.

5. Separate your items according to the type of metal. Metal prices vary according metal type. You might find it more advantageous to sell all your aluminum items separately from your iron pieces, for instance. However, if you find that separating the items according to the type of metal is too overwhelming for you, find out from the scrap yard whether you can throw all the items in one load.

6. Load your items onto your truck, trailer or van. You can even take a few items at time to the scrap yard in the trunk of a car. Take them to a local scrap yard and get fast cash for your scrap metal.

7.Take advantage of opportunities to make money fast. For example, look for scrap metal pieces as you drive around in your neighborhood. In most cities you can pickup any items placed by the curbside for heavy trash pick up. Make sure it's legal in your city before you decide to pick up any curbside items. Take note of dumpsters at apartment buildings. Tenants often place unwanted items by the dumpster, particularly on weekends after they go shopping or do their cleaning. Check at the end of the month when tenants are moving out and throw out unwanted items. Turn other people's unwanted treasures into fast cash.

People are often surprised at the many opportunities to make money fast. When you're in a bind, you don't have to resort to get-rich-quick schemes that take away your hard earned money. Look for creative ways to earn real money and get the fast cash you need.
