11. Get paid to surf the web
You can get paid to fill out surveys or review products online. You can monetize a blog or become a virtual assistant. Here are some more options to consider. You can also set up a gig on Fiverr and do tasks on Mturk.
12. Medical research and donations
If you are willing to use your body, you can always get paid to donate plasma, breast milk, or sperm. You can also participate in paid medical studies and research. This is not for the faint of heart, and I would weigh any potential risks to your health thoroughly as well as go with a reputable company.
13. Use your phone to earn money
Admit it, you are on your phone all the time anyway. Certainly you can spend a few minutes interacting with some of these apps to earn a little extra pocket money. Maybe you can earn enough to pay for your cell phone bill.
14. Collect scrap metal
You may have to do some dumpster diving to collect scrap metal, but you can certainly get a pretty penny when you sell it. Another thing you can do is collect soda and beer cans. There is a guy in my apartment complex who goes through the dumpsters several times a week and earns about $50-60 a week just from collecting cans, glass, and scrap metal!
15. Cook for cash
Are you a good cook? What about making cupcakes or cakes to sell? Catering private parties could be very lucrative. Cooking up a week’s worth of frozen meals for a busy professional who wants home cooking without the mess may be your claim to fame. When you are dealing with food, please check your local laws and statutes to obtain the necessary licenses or permits.
16. Work sporting or concert events
Now this would be a fun way to earn some extra cash and there are a variety of positions available. You can work as many or as few events as possible. I know if you get a few minor security clearances, you are easily able to use them at other events.
17. Freelance writing
Are your writing skills excellent? You can find all kind of writing gigs online, freelance writer, copy writer, guest articles, ghost posts etc.
Tutors can make a lot of money helping students in potentially all subjects, so if you are really good at English, Math or Science, etc., start helping students pass their classes and charge for your time.
19. Take in ironing
Ironing is a great skill to have and can be utilized to make money from home. Your clients will drop off and pick up their clothes at your house.
20. Repair things
Do you have handyman skills or can you repair computers? Why not put your skills to good use and charge for your services? Often people do not know how or do not want to take the time to make needed repairs.
