If you need a bit of extra money, or are between full-time jobs, a side job is one way to reach your goal.
Many people have a side job or activity to help them pay bills. Here are some ideas for a part-time job or side hustle that could help you get the money you need.
Make money online
Survey companies want your opinion and many of them will pay you to fill out their questionnaires online. You won’t make a ton of money, but if you were going to watch Netflix all night anyway, it’s a great way to make a few bucks at home.
Help people finish their to-do lists
Put an ad on Craigslist and Facebook, and let friends and family know that you’ll help them with tasks around the house in exchange for a bit of cash. Mowing, trash pickup and removal, minor household repairs, cleaning, and organization work are always in demand.
Clean out your closets and garage
If you have things you no longer use or want that are in good condition, consider a yard sell or selling them online. It’s easy to list items on your local Craiglist site or Facebook Marketplace.
Bet on your ability to lose weight
If you’ve wanted to drop a few pounds but haven’t found the motivation, look into HealthyWage. This company helps you bet on yourself and your ability to reach your weight loss goals. If you do what you say you’ll do, they’ll pay you.
It’s always a good idea to try to make extra money to support your financial goals. Another way to help give yourself a boost is to reduce your spending. If you don’t already work with a simple budget, put one together to find out where you could save money.
