Do you want more income streams? Who wouldn’t anyway? More money means more fun time. Believe me, if you don’t need to worry about spending the last dollar bills, then “one of the life worries is not your worries.”
But, you can’t just sleep and hope for some loads of cash to land on your pillows. No, it doesn’t work that way. To make more money, you need more side hustles.
Check out 5 side hustles you can start right now and make money weekly.
1. Become a Mystery Shopper
Do you love shopping? If your answer is “yes,” then you are probably living money on the table if you are not getting paid to shop with Instacart. So how does it work?
Simply easy. An Instacart user searches for a nearby store on the app and orders for items. The app then sends the orders to an Instacart shopper.
Once done, the shopper visits the store physically to shop for the items – and then he goes to deliver them to the customer. Yes, you can think of it as one of those apps that pay you to walk, and also meet new people.
As an Instacart shopper, you can make money in two ways: The first is the money Instacart pays you for the delivery, and the second is called Instacart tipping, which is compensation from the user.
2. Deliver Food
A food delivery job is one of the excellent side hustles you can start to make money right away. The good thing about this job is that you can start it even with a bicycle or a motorbike.
There are three common food delivery jobs you can start with, and they are Doordash and Ubereats.
Two important things to note is that you must be at least 18 years old to apply for this job. Also, you will need a driving license to deliver customer orders by a car or a bike.
3. Sell Your Old Scrap Metals
You don’t need to look too hard to find some scrap metals around your home. Okay, let’s think of the store, your garage, or even the backyard?
Funny enough, these old metal scraps are no longer used, but we still keep them around all the same. So, the question is, how can we turn these scraps into cash?
It is easy. All you need to do to make money is to gather your old metal scraps together and sell them to metal scrap dealers.
Moreover, you can easily locate a scrap dealer close to your area by simply searching for a scrap yard near me. You will see scrap centers close to your area and their address.
4. Become a Freelancer
Online jig sites have opened the door for so many online jobs right now. You can open your laptop and work and make money from home from any part of the world.
The good thing is that you can now do most of the jobs our old grandpas used to do on the paper right from your phone with online jig sites. Some of those jobs are writing, editing and proofreading, and even logo and banner designs.
Fortunately, starting a freelancing career is not difficult. Once you sign up and complete your profile, you are ready to bid for jobs.
Some of the top online jig sites where you can find jig jobs are freelancers, Upwork, Fiver, Peopleperhour, and Flexjobs.
5. Make Money by Walking Dogs
Do you love dogs and you don’t mind pet sitting other people’s pets for money, then you need to try a pet sitting job.
The good thing is that you can quickly start this job as a side hustle even in your area by letting your friends and neighbors know about it.
Also, you can sign up on Rover, a side that connects pet owners to pet sitters. Doing that will expose your job to more people and earn more with this side hustle.
Rent out Your Spare Room
Do you have a spare room in your home, and you don’t mind putting it up for short stay visitors? Then you can make some money on the side doing almost nothing by putting it on Airbnb.
Some room owners on Airbnb charge up to $50 or more per night while others cost less. It all depends on the state of your room and your location.
To list your room on Airbnb is not tricky. You need to sign up and upload the pictures of your room.
You can make money on the side even if you work a full job. But you need to find the right side hustles and manage your time well.
