What if I told you that you can earn a substantial amount of EXTRA money each week? We could all use a few extra bucks in our pockets, right?!

While we were busting our butts to get out of debt, I often looked for things I could do on the side that didn’t interfere too much with my regular schedule. Between my part-time job, working on this blog and filming YouTube videos I was already feeling short on time and the last thing I wanted to do was add one more thing on my plate…If you’re in a similar situation, I want to share a few ideas you could do to make some extra cash each week with tasks you could likely fit into the margins of your day??

4 | MYSTERY SHOP WITH field agent
Field Agent is an app that conducts research for brands by having users complete gigs such as taking pictures of different brand displays or answering questions about in-store merchandising where you can apply to different jobs many of which pay around $5 but some more! It’s often not worth the time if you are in a very rural area since there will not be as many jobs available and you will spend a large portion of your profits driving varying distances to each job.
If you’re in an urban area it’s likely you could make a lot more money with a lot less effort. For example, if you’re already in town shopping or running errands, you could complete multiple gigs (theoretically) in the same area without wasting your gas or precious time traveling to each job! I got myself in the habit of doing a quick check on my phone when I was at or headed to a specific store to see if there were any jobs available. I had the most luck with Sam’s Clubs and Walmarts in my area! Check out jobs on Field Agent.
5 | DELIVER WITH ROADIE
Roadie is an app where you can sign up to deliver packages! You can also use them to send packages! You could deliver packages on your way to or from work or anywhere else that is already on your way so you can earn money without having it be too much of an inconvenience!
Plus, I’ve never shipped something using Roadie but I hear you can often get faster and/or less expensive shipping! Check out Roadie to earn some extra cash!
6 | CLEAN HOUSES + DO HANDYMAN TASKS WITH HANDY
Handy is an app that helps connect you with clients looking for housecleaning, handyman tasks or even home improvement jobs! The earning possibilities greatly vary since there are so many different jobs available but Handy offers a ton of flexibility and allows you to be your own boss!

You can list all types of “gigs” you want to offer and name your price! Users can hire to perform these tasks for as little as $5 (so make sure it’s something you’re efficient in). This is a great way to earn extra money while you’re just relaxing at home, at night after the kids go to bed or even when you’re home sick from work (I won’t tell your boss, promise)!
