11 Ways You Can Grab Extra Money This Week

We can all agree that making more money is a great idea, but finding a second job is harder than it seems. Luckily, there are a ton of things you can do this weekend to supplement your income, especially if you don’t want to get another job.

Sell your stuff

Got old clothes at the back of your closet? Old laptops? Smartphones? Selling your stuff is a great way to make money fast. There have been cases where people can pay $15,000 in debt by simply selling their old things on eBay, Offer Up, and Poshmark.

Take stock of your inventory then look around the items that you can sell. Then create accounts for eBay, Poshmark, and Offer up.

eBay is a classic and can sell just about anything on eBay. You’ll need a PayPal account for this to get your money.

Poshmark is the best website to sell used clothing. It’s incredibly user-friendly, and you can buy, sell, and trade with other Poshers. They’ll also handle your shipping label for you.

OfferUp is a more traditional approach. It’s excellent for selling more significant items like Kayak, Old Bikes, etc. There’s no need for shipping because you’ll be selling items within your area. Just create an account and start selling!

Rent your stuff

If you have stuff lying around in your closet or garage like Halloween outfits, home improvement tools, garden tools that you can’t let go but don’t often use, then have it rented at Rentis.

Rentis is a trusted community of renters with people in areas in need of just about any items. All you have to do is list any item you’d like rented and wait for someone to rent it out.

Make money with your car

It’s about time your car starts paying back. If you live in a metropolitan city or area, you can use your vehicle for on-demand ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft. It’s easy to become a driver; all you have to do is sign up in these sites and get approved.

Delivering people, not your thing? You can deliver food and other items for delivery services like DoorDash, PostMates, Amazon Flex, GrabHub, and InstaCart and UberEats.

Don’t want to drive? Different apps provide the means to rent out your car. Hyrecar allows you to rent your car out to rideshare drivers and let them do the driving for you. Turo is like Airbnb but for cars. As long as your vehicle has a clean title and meets its requirements, your vehicle can get approved and listed on the platform.

Another way to make money with your car is to help people move stuff. If your vehicle is big enough to help people move out of their house, apartment, dorm, or moving items from a garage sale back home offering your car and services, and find prospective clients on Dolly and Craigslist.

If you’re driving anyway, why not make extra cash. Wrapify lets you earn money by allowing them to put a decal or wrap on your car. You could potentially earn $100 to $400 per month by simply driving.

Get Creative

Who would have thought that your hobby can turn into a lucrative side hustle. If you’re into crafting leather goods, clothes, pendants, creative hair clips, etc. then you can sell your crafts on Etsy, ArtFire, eBay, Zibbet, and Handmade at Amazon.

Build and Upcycle Furniture

Do you have old furniture you no longer use? You can upcycle dressers, old bed frames, or any old furniture, refinish and sell them. Even if you don’t have anything lying around, you can start building furniture from scratch and sell it.

Build a Website

Do you have a local business or planning on starting one? Do you have talent or service that you can offer to the world? In today’s competitive world, you need to have an online presence, and this is where building a website can help. Building websites are easy nowadays as all you have to do is create a free account on sites such as Wix. Wix offers ready-made templates that all you have to do is make changes according to your needs and run it. No coding knowledge is necessary.

Participate in Focus Groups

Participating in focus groups is a great way to earn some extra cash. You’ll not only get a fresh look at the upcoming trends in the market but also make a positive contribution to your chosen market. Companies want to know about your thoughts on cleaning products, body wash, gadgets, etc. before making it public, and that’s when focus groups come in. You’ll earn as much as $150 per product, plus you’ll get free stuff!

Participate in Clinical Trials

There’s an urgent and never-ending need for patients participating in clinical trials. There are a variety of studies and drugs that you can join in. The risk is low since most clinical trials are regulated if you’ve done due diligence before signing up. You can also feel free to opt-out anytime.

Get paid to donate sperm

Wait! Don’t waste that sperm. As it turns out, you can earn money by selling your sperm to sperm banks. The amount of money you can make will be based on the donation center, your age, and your health. You can earn $1,000 to $1,500 if you’re in good health and have met their requirements.

Donate plasma

If you’re in perfect health, then you can make use of your plasma to earn money. Plasma is the clear, liquid part of the blood that contains enzymes, antibodies, and essential proteins that help fight disease, produce blood clots, and prevent infections. Don’t worry about running out of plasma once you donated as it quicky regenerates in your body. Best of all, you’ll get to help the lives of people who need it.

Host “Experiences” in Airbnb

Airbnb, the popular marketplace for lodging, homestays, and tourism experiences, has recently introduced Online Experiences, which lets you offer unique activities from around the world through interactive video sessions. You can set up music, arts & crafts, health & wellness, athletics, and so much more right at the comfort of your home.
