It is no secret that traveling with kids can be an expensive pastime but it doesn’t need to break the bank. There are a few side hustles you can easily do from home that can help you cover the extra expenses that traveling with the family brings! So pack your bags and check out these three easy side hustles you can do to make extra money now!
Selling your unwanted items online is a very easy little side hustle to set up and make a profit from! You can sell all sorts of things like Christmas ornaments, clothing, accessories, or even furniture! After you have sold all your unwanted items you can ask your friends and family for more items that they don’t want to sell or go out looking around thrift stores or yard sales for more items. In fact, by the time that you have cleared out all of your unwanted items, you will have a good idea of the sort of things that sell well and make you the most money! There are many different websites that you can use to sell your unwanted items like Mercari or Facebook Marketplace but eBay is usually the best way to go!
Delivery driving is another way of making a bit of money in your spare time and you do not necessarily have to own a van or a truck in order to do this, though you may need additional insurance. It is not so difficult to find jobs either, as you may think, by using such a facility as a load board. A load board is the best place to search for shipping jobs. It will have jobs that are available so that you can choose which are the ones you can do due to your location and time. Once you have selected the job you are interested in, you will have to enter the price you will be happy to complete the work for and wait to see if the customer is happy with your price for that particular delivery job. You can also look into food delivery jobs like Door Dash or Uber Eats!
Dog walking is another very easy little side hustle to make extra money although you will definitely need some insurance to cover such things as dog bites, theft and injury and other things that might come up. You will also need to be confident around dogs as they can act up around those who are nervous or scared of them, and it would probably be beneficial to you if you have a level of background with dogs in general. Dog owners can be very protective of their furry friends, some even more so than of family members. If you are unsure of the dog you are walking, it is wise not to let it off of the lead and instead invest in an extending lead instead for these particular dogs. You will also have to look into your particular state’s regulations and legislation when it comes to walking dogs, where they are allowed to be walked when they can be off of the lead, as well as clearing up after them when they have pooped.
