Earn extra money

Posted: Updated:

You may have a full time job, but having supplemental income is always a big help. There are plenty ways you can make extra cash in your spare time. Reddit suggests…

  • Flipping at yard sales. This is when you go digging for items, then turn around and sell them on eBay for a profit.
  • Take to the roads and be an Uber driver. Consider driving right after work or during the weekends. That is when prices surge and you make more.
  • Rent out part of your house. One Redditor rents out the top section of his home and from that rent, 80 percent of the mortgage is covered.
  • Make up to $200 an hour with market research. You sign up with a market research company and give feedback on products and your spending habits.
  • Create an app. Of course, you will need to know how to code; but that is a good skill to have considering a lot of tech jobs on the market expect you to have coding knowledge.
  • Work as a transcriber. Transcribing videos, conference calls, and sound files can earn up to $20 an hour.
  • Tutoring students can also reel in $20 an hour. Proctoring the ACT and SAT at high schools can put $100 in your pocket per session.
  • Get out and be active by coaching or refereeing. You will get a couple hundred dollars over the weekend, and up to $40 per match.
  • Hit up Google Helpouts. This is where you get to be the expert on a topic and charge a fee to help someone else; and it is all done via webcam, with your live how-to videos.
  • Donate plasma. Earn money and save a life at the same time. ADMA Biocenters, in Atlanta, says you can earn up to $250 a month by donating.
