I am going to outline 10 easy ways to make some extra money around your home town. This will be ways to make money with your labor, not online.
Check this post out for ways to make money online.
If you have the extra time, why not trade it for extra money!
1. Sell Unwanted Stuff
This one is a pretty obvious way to make extra money, I’m sure most of us already use this method. Most household have up to $1000 worth of unused or unwanted stuff. There are plenty of places to sell stuff online, but since this is ment for making money offline, we will look at those options.
The easiest way to get rid of stuff and make money would likely be holding a yard sale. This works great in the summer, but if you live in a part of the world where we get snow it’s a bit more difficult. I have seen garage sales throughout winter months.
Another way to make extra money by selling your stuff is pawn shops, I’m sure there is one close to you, in the small town I live in there is two. I’ve sold things like antiques, expensive winter wear, video games and consoles, old cell phones and jewelry just to name a few.
2. Delivery service
This one is pretty simple. There are all kinds of things that you could offer to deliver to make extra money. You could offer food delivery services for restaurants, grocery stores, or newspapers. You could also offer delivery services for furnature stores if you have a big vehicle. Some delivery services could be done on foot to save fuel cost, and you’ll get some exercise. The possibilities are endless, and if you have enough time you can turn a decent profit.
3. Washing Cars
Washing cars is a simple way to make some extra money. There is a low upfront cost to this as well, soap, bucket and sponges. You can offer this service out of your own driveway, or even ask a store owner to use their parking lot.
Depending on how much time you have, you could easily get yourself and extra $100 a day. In the small town I live in, there are a couple of retired people that offer this out of their homes, and they are washing cars everyday.
4. Cutting Grass
This is a good one for young teenagers, not only because it’s simple but alot of elderly would be happy to give a teenager some cash for the service.
Odds are you or your parents already be a lawn mower so the only real expense is the fuel you need to put in it. This is a service I provided in my teenage years, it was easy to make $50 to $100 a day on weekends.
5. Shoveling Drivways and Walkways
Much like cutting grass, this is another great one for teenagers. Again, elderly love helping teenagers, out if their asked, they would more than likely give you some cash for shovelling. This also have a low upfront cost, but can be more physically demanding if a snow storm just came through.
Be sure to continue providing your service to the same people when it’s required, it will show your dedicated and they will appriciate it way more.
Driving for Uber (or any other) is a decent way to make extra money. Not only can you turn a profit but you can also meet decent people. Win win! If you own a car, your ready to go.
7. Rent you car out
If driving people around for cash is t up your alley, how about renting out you car? This might sound scetchy to some people but it’s a decent source of income and there are trackers available these days to monitor people’s driving habits so you can charge accordingly!
Obviously, you will need a family reliable car, but it’s simple to advertise this online of offline. Post a bullion in your local grocery store, or a ad in your local newspaper. If you live in a city you can easily make money doing this. While on renting out your stuff,
8. Rent out a room
This method made me some decent cash when I bought my house. It’s accually pretty amazing what people will pay for a room. As with renting out your car, post bullitons online or offline anywhere you want and they will call.
Best to meet these potential renters ahead of time and lay out ground rules before hand because it can cause headaches down the road if you don’t.
9. Dog Walking or Dog Sitting
This is another excelent source of income. If you looking for extra money, there is always someone looking for dog sitters or dog walkers.
In my small hometown, we have quite a few retired people that do this through the day to make extra money. Some people love their dogs like they love their children, and will pay you for your service. In fact, my grandmother made more money walking dogs than my wife made babysitting.
10. Washing windows
I know, washing windows? Right..?
Well, where I live, main street is all stores, and these store owners have no problem paying $10 to wash their windows. I know, $10 bucks, woohoo! But it literally takes 10 minutes to wash their windows, then you walk next door and offer to the next store owner.
Low upfront cost as well, squeegee, bucket, and a cleaning product like bleach, Windex, or vinegar. A friend of mine did this through high school, and still does it 15 years later (Runs a business now).
Windows need cleaned every couple of weeks and $10 to a business owner twice a month is nothing. My friend makes really good money doing this, and if your ambitious enough, you don’t have to stop at stores, small apartment buildings, and home owners would love this service as well.
Well, there is obviously infinite ways to make extra money, but these are the top 10 ways to gain the best profit in my opinion. Thanks for reading and comment on your money making ideas.
