If you’re in between jobs, or inflation has squeezed your budget to razor-thin margins, you may be looking for quick ways to make extra money and meet your financial goals. Luckily, there are a number of side hustles that require little experience that you can do whenever you have free time. You can use a car or bike and delivery food using an app, walk dogs, or even occasionally rent your home to travelers. These side hustles can help you meet your financial needs.
Food delivery apps
Finding the best food delivery app to work for will depend on several factors, including where you live and if you drive or bike. With most food delivery apps, previous delivery experience isn’t a requirement, and you may be able to start delivering after just a few days from when you apply (sometimes subject to a background check as well). And many food delivery apps are expanding their offerings. So, instead of simply delivering a takeout order to a customer, you may be able to also shop for groceries, alcohol, or household items and deliver the order to a customer, which can help you earn more money.
Another benefit of food delivery compared with other driving side hustles, like a ride share driver, is that there’s no need to chauffeur people around and no chit-chat. It’s just you, your delivery order, and your tunes.
Sometimes used on their own, and other times used in tandem with food delivery apps, ridesharing apps can be another way to use your vehicle as a side hustle. You can help passengers in your local market get around easier from one destination to the next.
Rent your house
This side hustle may not be feasible for everyone, but if you own your home, or have a second home, you may be able to rent out the space part time. This can be a worthwhile side hustle, especially if you live near a popular vacation spot or city. There are different online marketplaces and apps that can help manage short-term rentals.
Become a freelancer or tutor
Depending on your education, background, or professional experience, you may be able to consider freelancing, or even tutoring for your side hustle. Try to think outside the box: Sure, you may be able to tutor math, but if you’re proficient in Excel, you may be able to find freelance opportunities to utilize that skill. If your writing and grammar skills are excellent, you may be able to find side hustles for blogging or writing for product descriptions for an online retailer.
Dogwalker or pet sitter
If you love animals, then the most adorable side hustle would be dog walking or pet sitting. Dog walking provides a great opportunity to get out of the house for some physical activity, and pet sitting can allow you to make money from the comfort of your own home. There are a number of apps and online services that allow you to sign up and find jobs in your area. Like other apps and services, you may need to undergo a background check before you can accept your first job.
Take online surveys
Although the earning potential is much lower than standard side hustles, there are a number of companies that will pay you to answer questions in online surveys. The main benefit is that these can be done basically anywhere you can use your computer and connect to the internet. But the main drawback is you likely won’t make more than the amount to pay off one utility per month. If you’re the type to think that every little bit helps, then this could be a good option for you.
Side hustles can be a great way to meet your financial goals. No matter your current financial situation, there may be plenty of opportunities out there to help you earn more in your spare time.
