Getting Started Making Extra Money

Making some extra money is always nice. No, actually, making extra money, is great! As everyone knows, right now the economy is struggling big time and people are hurting from all kinds of financial pressures. Unemployment, rising prices, wage cuts, tax hikes, and benefit cuts are all hitting people's wallets right now. Thinking about ways to make extra money and then executing on your ideas, can help people stay afloat during some rough times. Even if you haven't been hurt by the recession, making extra money can help you to meat financial goals and maybe get ahead a little quicker than you would have.

27 Great Ideas To Make Extra Money!

1. Shovel Driveways - This is a no brainer right now with all of the snow some places are getting. Put up some flyers around town or put a classified ad on Craigslist or the local newspaper to get the word out. If you own or have access to a good snow blower you may even be able to turn this idea into a seasonal business to make extra money every winter.

2. Mow Lawns - Similar to idea #1, but still worth mentioning as a way to earn extra money in the summer. Also could be another seasonal business idea too.

3. Do Topical Research for People Who Don't Have The Time - Those who are fast and diligent at doing high quality, accurate research could benefit from this money making idea. It Could be a valuable service to students, small business owners, bloggers, writers, and others. Just put an ad out on Craigslist or other classifieds, specifying the topics you will research and how much you charge, to see if there is any interest.

4. Sell Your Plasma - Look for places around your area that offer extra money for your plasma if you aren't too squeamish.

5. Tutor High School or College Students - If you have expertise or higher education in areas like science, math, history, or economics you could offer to tutor students for extra money.

6. Iron People's Clothes - Many people are too busy to keep up with daily chores like ironing their dress shirts. You could offer to come pick up, iron, and bring back people's clothes to make some extra money. Also don't forget, that you should be able to deduct any mileage and gas expenses on your taxes, but consult with a qualified tax advisor first.

7. Clean Houses - If you don't mind rolling up your sleeves and doing dirty work, cleaning houses in your spare time can be a lucrative way to make extra money.

8. Teach A Second Language - Even if you only know English there is still an opportunity to make extra money teaching those who don't speak it. If you do know a foreign language like Chinese or Spanish, then you probably have even greater odds to bring in some extra cash.

9. Cut Hair In Your Home - If you know how to cut hair well enough to not make people scream when you're done then you might think about out pricing your local salons and barbers by providing cheaper cuts in your basement or living room. Of course most states require a license to cut hair, but the probability of getting caught is likely to be low enough to risk any fines in order to make some extra money.

10. Write Cover Letters and Resumes For Jobseekers - With the horrendous job market there is sure to be demand for this service as jobseekers need to get their names out to as many prospective employers as possible. Plus if the economy bounces back there will always be people looking to change jobs.

11. Do Ghost Writing Assignments - This may be perfect for some of the really strong writers on Hubpages. Ghost writing can be done for blogs, magazine columns, or school assignments. Craigslist or both on and offline networking could help you to get ghost writing gigs, but sites like and can also help you to start taking on projects.

12. Do People's Grocery Shopping - You could charge a fee to go out and get peoples grocery's for them. It could even be possible to make even more money by proposing to save your customers as much money as you can when you do their shopping through coupons and shopping sales, if you get a cut of the savings.

13. Sell Your Hair - I have read that human hair can sell for hundreds of dollars or even thousands if long and nice enough. Though that type of pricing would most likely be at the high end. . It also has to be virgin (never colored or permed) and more than 10 inches long. You can sell it at Ebay or there is a site called that you can place $20.00 add on for 3 months to try to sell your hair. The Online Hair Affair also looks like a viable option for selling hair.

14. Sign Up For A Paid Clinical Trial - Companies like Quintiles frequently run studies testing different drugs and pharmaceutical products out before they go to market. Here is their clinical research information page. There is also a site called that can direct you towards a clinical trial.

15. Run Errands For People - Busy people may have all kinds of daily errands that they would love to pay someone to take care of for them. If your flexible enough and have enough room in your schedule this may be the way for you to make some extra money.

16. Enter A Viral Video Contest And Win! - Bloggers, websites, corporations, and other types of sponsors offer up viral video contests every so often. For example James Altucher recently held this one on his blog ending Feb. 1, 2011 were $1,000 was up for grabs.

17. Set Up A Car Wash - You could place a classified ad locally and have people schedule appointments at your house or you could also try to pitch a local business in your area to use their parking lot space to hold an all day car wash.

18. Contract to Clean Office Buildings - Network with local business owners to find possible side work tidying up and cleaning office buildings. This could probably bring in as much as $100-$200 extra per month just from fairly easy weekend work.

19. Make Meals For Specific Diet Plans - If you are good at preparing and cooking foods and are able to do so, while meeting certain ingredient and health criteria for those that require a specific diet, this could be a great way to make extra money. You could make and prepare the meals at your own home or show up at your customer's home and cook them.

20. Watch And Care For Pets (Pet Sitting) - Animal lovers can make money on the side by checking in on pets while their owners are away. All they have to do is show up every day and fill up their food and water bowls, clean up after them, and probably take them outside. Those not comfortable with big animals could specify a size limit or only care for small animals like rodents, reptiles, fish, or maybe snakes if they don't find them to scary.

21. Dress Up Like It's Halloween When It's Not - Standing outside of some retail store with an obnoxious outfit may not be the most glamorous thing you could do, but If you can make some extra money why not. Plus no one will actually know it's you!

22. Make A Fool Of Yourself In Public - In my hub about getting free books and free cable TV I mentioned how billionaire, Alki David reportedly paid a man $ 1 million to streak in front of President Obama with the name of his website plastered on his chest. My father had a friend who streaked through a wedding for a lot less. For those who won't allow public embarrassment to stand in the way of making some extra money, there are all kinds of humiliating dares that your friends and enemy's alike would surely pay to see. Of course if you do something that could get you arrested, like streaking, be sure the financial reward is great enough to more than cover fines and court costs.

23. Rent Out A Room - Renting out a room in your house can bring in an extra $200-$600 or even more a month, depending on how nice the house is and what area you live in. Of course you would want to put all of the living arrangements in paper and review the landlord laws that apply to your state.

24. Rent Out Storage Space - Do you have extra storage space that's not being used for anything? Maybe your home has lots of room in the attic or basement that could be monetized. Or maybe the business you own has parking lot space and visibility that people trying to sell boats or cars would be willing to pay to utilize. Again you would want to document everything and do some research on how to protect yourself legally, but this could be a nice way to make some extra money.

25. Make Bets That You Already Know The Answer To - This one is kind of a mean way to make some extra cash, but I bring it up mainly because of a personal anecdote that I remembered while starting to write this hub. One of my parent's friends used to make bets like this with his daughter. She was a know it all teenager at the time and thought she had all the answers. Her and her dad would get into arguments about trivia and she would be so convinced that she was right that she would put money on it. He of course would make sure to check the facts out and then bet. He ended up winning his daughter's allowance back more times than I can remember. So If you have a lot of no it all acquaintances who are willing to put their money where their mouth is, you can make extra cash and teach them a lesson.

26. Make $5 Per Task - Basically Fiverr is a site that allows people to propose simple tasks that they will do for $5. Or people can make requests that they are willing to pay $5 for. Tasks can include making short 2 or 3 minute videos, writing a birthday card to someone's loved one, building a basic website, etc. It's not a lot, but if you can find something quick & easy that you are good at and can do over and over again, then you can make some easy extra money.

27. Maybe Just Ask? - Of course everyone is familiar with panhandling, so yes people can get money just by asking. What about using the internet? Say for example, could a site like Youtube be used as a way to simply ask and receive money? Well it was recently reported that a Brooklyn comedian named Craig Rowin had successfully become a millionaire by simply asking through You Tube. Check out his video below.

Meet The Guy Who Asked For $1 Million And Got It! Well Wait... Not Exactly?

It Didn't Exactly Happen Like That

As I first wrote in this hub, Craig did ask for $1 million and he did announce on Youtube that there was a wealthy individual who would be writing him a check for the money. This didn't end up being true though. It was actually a clever and well executed hoax. Craig was actually just pulling everyone's leg. He didn't get $1 million just from asking, but he did get allot of attention and hits on his Youtube videos which is probably worth some money.

Craig's Hoax Revealed!

Making Extra Money Isn't Always Easy, But Can Be Done If You Find Something Right For You


I hope those who read this will find some of the ideas on my list, to make some extra cash useful. Obviously not all of these would be right for everyone, but it's always good to have to have a long list of money making ideas, in order to start your planning to gain some extra income. Hopefully something on my money making list actually helps you, but even if nothing I've mentioned will work for your situation, hopefully some of these things may spark your initiative and get you thinking about things that may actually work for you. Be sure to let me know what you think or give me any feedback regarding some other ideas.

      That is a very interesting bit on Youtube with the guy who asked for a million dollars and it was a hoax. I guess he just had a good idea for making a video that's all. So I guess the moral of the story is its good to make Youtube videos! Thank you for this detailed list of ways and article.

      A very nice list to get anyone started making extra money on the side.

      Sometime it's the most simplest things that can make you money. From being a pet sitter to running errands for people (especially elderly people).

      Another way to make the bigger checks is to start a home business on the side. Of course that takes time, but it's worth it if you want to make more than a few bucks here and there.

      Whatever you've decided to make extra money on, the key to your success is promotion. Use youtube to promote your product or service.

      Youtube is the 3rd top

      site in the world, with over 1 billion unique visitors every month. Over 6 billion hours of video are watched every month. Youtube is localized in 56 countries across 61 languages.

Youtube is available on hundreds of millions of devices. Over 700 videos are shared on Twitter each minute; 100 million people take social action like sharing, comments, etc.

      However, not all internet marketers or businesses know how to maximize the potential of this FREE yet EFFECTIVE marketing tool. You need to learn this and generate HUGE CASH online while working from home.

      T.Y. Hudson,

      Another interesting tale. I'm sad to hear that about your sister. I hope she gets on a better track and you guys can re-connect. No doubt about lazy people scamming their way into easy money. Of course there is allot of suckers out there too.

    • T.Y._Hudson profile image

      T.Y._Hudson 7 years ago from Pennsylvania

      Oh I could tell plenty of stories like that, just from the people I know. My sister for instance, will sit outside of gas stations anytime she gets a facial bruise. (which, she gets plenty of, being an alcoholic) She will sit on the curb around the side of the store and sob. She can be pretty darn attractive when she cleans up, and of coarse men will rush to an attractive, sobbing lady. She will tell anyone who asks, that she got in a fight with her boyfriend, he punched her in the face, and then threw her out of the car. They offer her help and she tells them that her wallet was in the car, and she could use some money to get a bite to eat, and to call her mom to come pick her up.

      She can net $20 or more a shot from doing this!

      Another thing she is famous for doing, is stealing small things from stores that cost a decent amount of money. Like a set of highly priced sink knobs from Lowe's. Then she will return them to a different Lowe's and get store credit for them since she doesn't have a receipt. After that, she will head out into the parking lot and find someone who works construction, and offer them the gift card at half price.

      She has staged walk-a-thons, marathons, and all sorts of "thons" to get people to donate to her fictional causes. When I heard that she started buying up candy bars from the dollar store for 50 cents, and went door to door selling them for $2 a piece, claiming they were for a fundraiser, I heard it all.

      She is pushing 30 and has worked less than 6 months combined, between 4 actual jobs, her whole life. The majority of her money goes towards booze, but needless to say, the girl is living pretty well off of all her scams and constant town hopping.

      I haven't seen or heard from her in about 5 years. That's probably a good thing. But whatever the case, the laziest people out there can usually find some of the easiest ways possible, to make a ton of money in no time.

      T.Y. Hudson,

      Thanks for stopping by and reading. Your story if true is pretty amazing. It's amazing what you can learn while on the toilet! LOL! I have heard stories like that before maybe not quite as detailed and intriquing as the one you have shared. The ones I read were from local news reports were pan handlers were outed when they got caught getting into a Mercedes to go home after a day of begging. Pretty sleazy, but what can you say human nature is what it is.

      Thanks again for reading, I always look forward to hearing your interesting commentary!

    • T.Y._Hudson profile image

      T.Y._Hudson 7 years ago from Pennsylvania

      Tindle, I felt the need to give you some serious hub love. I simply don't have very much free time, and it's hard for me to get around to reading other people's articles. Heck, I barely have time to write my own.

      Well anyway, I read through this deal here, and I found some pretty interesting stuff. So I'd like to propose a #28.

      Many moons ago, I stumbled upon the most fascinating article in a porno. I know that Playboy isn't famous because of it's articles, but to be completely honest, the articles are the only reason that I ever pick one up.

      Anyhoo, there were tons and tons of them in this shop I used to work in, and I had to make a mad dash one day, and so off I went to the crapper. Once inside, I realized that it was gonna be a fighter, so I grabbed a magazine off the back of the toilet, brased myself, and spent the better part of an hour reading. (I know that my time in the jon has absolutely nothing to do with my comment. I just figured I'd throw it in for affect)

      Well I came across this article, that was about a blind man. It was an interview in fact. The reporter was telling this "un named" man's story. Apparently, this blind man has lost his sight due to a work related accident, and his settlement was thrown out of court. He had three children under the age of 12, and needed to pay someone to help him tend to his home. To top it all off, this guy's wife had been killed in a fatal automobile accident, just one year after he became blind, and she didn't have any life insurance. So this poor old man was sh#t out of luck, and couldn't get a job anywhere with his condition.

      He resorted to hitting the streets in an effort to make money. In doing this, he would stand on the sidewalk of a busy street in New York City, and basically beg for people's assistance. He sold little plastic key chains that were various colors and came with a neat little hook for your belt or whatever. Each key chain had a little tag on it that said, "thank you for your help, my children are blessed, that there are so many wonderful, caring, and giving people in this world", and each key chain was sold for $2.

      The guy would be out on the curb from sun up, until sun down, 5-6 days a week. Each day he stood on a different street, holding onto a walking stick, a small hand painted sign that said, "please help me keep my children, I'm blind, and I can't work", and he had a blind eye seeing dog as well, that sat beside him.

      The interviewer got this guy's entire horrible life story, and promised to publish it in a national magazine, then he said his farewells, after buying ten key chains, and went on his way.

      What the blind man didn't know however, was that the reporter never went home. Instead, he stayed in a nearby van, to get some pictures of people donating, for his article. When the sun was about halfway down, the blind man proceeded to walk down the street, lead by his dog. When he got to the end of it, he walked into an alley, where he was met by a limo.

      Once there, he opened the back door, and the dog jumped into the limo. Then the "blind man" walked back to the trunk, it popped open, and he tossed the walking stick, sunglasses, and box of key chains into it. He then proceeded to get into the limo, and it drove out of town slightly, and up a huge hill to a mansion.

      Upon further investigation by the reporter, this "blind guy", wasn't blind at all. He didn't have any children, and had never been married. He was perfectly normal and the whole thing was one big charade. As well, the guy makes an average of half a million dollars a year from doing this.

      The reporter mentioned the entire story story in the magazine, only he was kind enough to leave out the "blind" guy's name.

      Though the man was never arrested for scamming people, he did stop begging on the streets of New York. It was believed by the reporter, that he had simply overstayed his welcome, and had caught the attention of local law enforcement, thanks to the article, and decided to move to a new town.

      Another way I read about that involved making some easy money, was a story about kids who went around telling people that they wanted to become millionaires, and asked them for their pennies. The kids started when they were 12 and 13, and by the time they were 26 and 27, they had collected a million dollars in pennies.

      Nice tips Tindle. Keep up the quality, quality!

      Thanks for the update on Craig Rowin, you are right he did not actually receive the $1 million, it was actually a well orchestrated hoax. I believe it hadn't been revealed at the time I published this article. I will update my hub soon to include the full story. As you said though the attention and hits on Youtube can be monetized.

      Uh...that Craig Rowin thing was a scam. He never got a million dollars. He did get half a million hits though on youtube. Should be a way to make some money from that type of exposure.

      Jamie Brock,

      Hey thanks for the good feedback. I'm glad you found my ideas useful. Fiverr is kind of an interesting site. $5 isn't much, but if you found a niche that you could repeat over and over and not spend allot of time doing it, then it could be a money maker for some!
