I made $230 for about 10 minutes of work from home! - Reventals Event Rentals
  • 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,
