If you’re like most people, you probably feel a financial squeeze from time to time. After all, no matter who you are, more money is usually better. Whatever you might do for a living, it always helpful if you can dig up a little side hustle to put in the bank or have a little fun. If getting another job isn’t possible for you, there are still ways you can bring in some extra bucks and make money! Here are a few things to try.
Decluttr is a service that helps you sell stuff when you’re decluttering your home. We could all stand to get rid of some stuff, and you never know when someone else might be looking for just what you’re clearing out. When someone buys your stuff, you get paid the next day.
2. Sell Your “Body Parts”
No, we aren’t talking about selling kidneys or doing anything else illegal here. But you can get paid to give plasma, hair, or reproductive “necessities” like sperm and eggs.
3. Take Up a Collection
And by a collection, we mean things like glass or plastic bottles, scrap metal, and aluminum cans. One women actually made $73,000 this way.
4. Focus Groups
Market research firms commonly ask everyday people to spend an hour or two of their time answering questions, trying samples of products, and discussing what they’re looking for in these products for money. You can make $75 to $300 per hour as a participant. Check your local paper or google for focus groups in your area. Do these a lot, and you’ll be able to save up for that Caribbean vacation.
5. Take Surveys
These won’t pay you as much as actual focus groups, but if you just want to sit at home and take surveys or test products, you can make some extra cash. There are actually a slew of reputable companies that reward you for participating.
