How to make extra cash if you don’t work full-time
Working part-time can be frustrating when you’re trying to balance your studies or to make more money on the side. It can lead to becoming too stressed out to figure out where the next rent payment is coming from. Today we will cover briefly about how to make extra cash if you don’t work full-time.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways of making money on the side if you’re only working part-time. It certainly won’t be as stressful as having two part-time jobs! Read on to get some fresh ideas about getting your finances back into gear.
Sell your old stuff
This shouldn’t be a time-consuming enterprise. All you have to do is take a few hours from a weekend morning and have a good once-over all your stuff, setting all the things that you could plausibly sell aside. These may include items that you bought but don’t really use, or things that you just don’t want or need anymore.
After you’ve organized your stuff into a ‘no longer needed’ pile, make a list and call up your friends to find out if anyone you know would like any of it; that way, they can come and pick it up too. If your friends are broke, though, you can always pawn and flog your stuff online at a site.
Use your skills
If you’ve got time to spare and you’re in need of a cash injection, you should think about what you’re good at and how you can make money out of it. For instance, if you’ve got a keen eye, get your portfolio into gear online and start advertising your services as an event- or wedding-photographer. Once you build a bigger back-catalogue of your work, you’ll be more likely to begin fielding inquiries.
On the other hand, if you’re not really the creative type, utilize your other skills. If you’re good with kids, advertise yourself as a babysitter after you’ve got a reference from a friend whose kids you took care of for an evening or two.
Offer your assistance to the elderly
There are probably more than just a handful of elderly people in your neighborhood who would love some assistance from someone young, to help them get their groceries and run other errands. This is a good way of making cash, as you can always benefit from tips, too.
Rent your garage space out
If your apartment or house has a garage or parking space outside, you’re sitting on a goldmine. Parking is expensive in cities, and drivers are always looking for alternatives. Go online and find a website that allows you to advertise your parking space. If you live in a central area, you can certainly make quite a lot of cash for no work at all.
