4. Create a course! If you have a skill that you can share with people, you can turn it into an online course!
5. Uber or Lyft driving. This is one of the more popular ways to make extra money these days, but it can’t hurt to include! Keep in mind the exchange of wear and tear on your vehicle to see if it’s really worth it, though.
7. Open an Etsy shop. If you love crafting and are skilled in handmaking items, Etsy is the place for you!
8. Invest with Stash! Stash is a great app because you can start investing (and earning) for as little as a $5 initial investment and $1 a month (though the first month is FREE)!
9. Become a virtual assistant. If you have skills that would be beneficial to a business or website owner (or if you decide to learn those skills), you can become a VA!
10. Mystery shopping. Mystery shopping is a tactic most companies use to get honest feedback on how their businesses are being run since they likely can’t be there to monitor all the time. This is a one of the most fun ways to make extra money and you can frequently get free meals out of it too!
11. Sell photos! You can sell pictures you’ve taken on stock photo sites or, if they’re high quality enough, you might be able to sell them as art prints!
12. Sell your clothes to Plato’s Closet or ThredUp. Selling your close to a consignment clothing store is one of the easiet ways to make extra money. After all, we all need new clothes eventually!
13. “Flip” something! If you like to refinish things or breathe new life into old things – this is one of the best ways to make extra money for you! You can find some pretty great treasures at flea markets or thrift stores and flip them to sell.
14. Sell your plasma! If you’re qualified to donate plasma and you don’t mind needles too much, this is a solid option for making some quick cash during your spare time.
15. Write content online. Many blogs, online magazines, and news sites are looking for writers to contribute content all the time. Some sites will pay $100 or more per post!
16. Lose weight! With apps like DietBet, you can place a bet against other people about how much weight you want to or expect to lose in a month. If you hit your goal, you get your money back and a portion of any money the people who did not reach their goal put in! It’s a great motivation and way to earn some cash.
17. Earn On Pinterest. If you’re a pinaddict like lots of us, you could sign up for an affiliate program and if you pin their product and someone buys, you earn a comission.
18. Start a blog! This definitely isn’t the easiest way to make money on the side, but it can be fun and rewarding! Not sure if you’ve been reading us at HTSFF for a while, this blog has supported many over the years with a lot of hard work and even more fun!
