Are you looking for a way to make extra money? I think it’s safe to say that we can all use a little extra cash in our wallets. That’s why some of us freelance outside of our day jobs, why others start a side hustle and some others work two or three jobs. Having extra cash in our pockets can help make our lives easier from paying off debt to building up an emergency savings fund and saving for retirement.
If you want to increase your cash flow, here are some ways to make extra money:
Drive with Uber
If you have a car, like being on the road and want to meet new people, becoming an Uber driver is a good way to make extra money. I don’t like driving and being in traffic makes me angry so this isn’t one of the ways I make extra money. However, I do know a few people who drive with Uber part time and they love it.
Working part-time lets you control your hours and your earning potential is unlimited. When you set the price and terms of each ride you can make as much money as you want, depending on how often you want to work.
Freelance your skills
A passion can be a real cash cow, that’s how the world of blogging exploded into a multi-million-dollar business. Nowadays bloggers are influencers and often partner with national brands to sell everything from soda to shampoo in traditional media and print ads.
If you have a marketable skill, why not turn it into an additional income stream. If you have a passion such as baking, creative design, writing or fixing cars – whatever it may be, if you love doing it then it won’t seem like work and you’ll make extra money at the same time.
Apply for a cash back credit card
This is one of the easiest ways to make extra money part time. If you have a credit card and you’re using it, why not get something in return – other than a bill at the end of the month.
A credit card should always offer a form of rewards from travel perks to cash back. It’s a simple way to make extra money because you’re just being rewarded for something you’re already doing i.e. swiping your credit card.
Sell your unused stuff
Why keep a closet, attic or basement full of unused items? I don’t’ want to say unwanted because if you didn’t want them then you wouldn’t still have them. If you haven’t used an item in six months (two seasons) then it’s time to get rid of it.
If listing items on Craigslist and inviting people into your home isn’t your style and dragging all of your stuff out to the driveway for a garage sale doesn’t seem like you, there are other ways to sell your stuff. You can post ads in local Facebook groups and Facebook Garage Sale groups – yes that’s a real thing, I promise. You can also use aps such as Letgo to list your unused items for sale.
