You don’t have to buy into those schemes that make you shell out hundreds of dollars before you actually make any money. There are ways to make extra money on the side that are free to start! They are not going to get you rich quick, they probably wont make you rich at all, but they can score you some much needed extra dough, enough to pay for a babysitter and a night out, or help pay some bills. If you haven’t read my first edition of these kinds of jobs look here . Below are an additional 7 to help you make extra money!
1.Nanny in your own home.
You won’t believe how many people need help with affordable childcare. I know I listed care.com and sittercity.com last time, but I have now experienced MORE ways to get connected with people who need childcare. I recently found people on nextdoor.com and local Facebook groups who needed part-time, flexible care for their children, who are around the same ages as my own kids. I offer affordable rates and provide food, whole milk and wipes for diaper changes. They bring diapers, one-two changes of clothing and cups for milk and water. DONE. I appreciate some extra income and the parents like having an affordable and flexible option. You could even offer something especially for the holidays if you are around then. (Kids will be out of school and parents might still be working or might need a little kid-free time for shopping.)
2. Uber Eats
Like the idea of uber but not crazy about driving around a bunch or strangers? Uber Eats is for you! This is all about picking up food someone has ordered and already paid for, and you deliver it to their home. You don’t even get out of the car.. they come out and get it. PERFECTION.
