Never a day goes by when we feel that we have enough money. It’s always a scramble when it comes to paying bills, boosting savings or even finance a vacation. However, there is no dearth of legitimate money making opportunities when it comes to earning a little extra cash. The good part? Earn it at your convenience and without a long term commitment. No matter what your skill set is, or how much time you have, you should be able to find something on this list that you can do to make some extra money. So, instead of lamenting and sighing, get ready to hustle and earn your way out!
1. Sell Unwanted Items Online
A number of online platforms like Quikr or OLX have emerged as a platform for selling/purchasing/exchange of new and used goods. You can easily cash in on your unwanted electronics like smartphones, tablets, laptops or even damaged items by selling them online.
If you have a special skill, whether it’s the ability to play an instrument well, paint beautifully, know a second language or explain math in a way anyone can understand, you may be able to make money by sharing it with others.
Modelling is another great way to earn money. If you’re comfortable posing in front of cameras and love the idea of being clicked, consider modelling. If you’re interested in becoming a model, send us a DM on Instagram.

4. Redeem Reward Points
You could be sitting on an untapped source of cash if you haven’t bothered to redeem your credit card rewards points lately. Not only credit cards, everything from airline miles to cash back vouchers can make your day a little sunnier.
5. Dog Walking And Pet Sitting
Get a little exercise and earn some cash while strolling around with your furry friends. You can also consider pet sitting for pet owners when they have to leave town for a couple of days.
Plenty of media, corporate and nonprofit websites have opportunities for freelancers to write, edit or design content. Web sites such as Freelancer or People Per Hour offer a wide variety of freelancing jobs in multiple categories such as design, media and architecture or writing and content. Budding photographers can earn extra cash by selling their photos to websites such as iStock and Shutterstock.
7. Rent Out The Extra Space That You Are Not Using
If you have room to spare you can get an apartment mate to share living costs and/or rent. You can also make a listing on websites like Airbnb to rent out a spare room if you do not want a long-term house guest.
8. Become A Tour Guide
If you know a lot about the city where you live, you may be able to profit from your knowledge by becoming a tour guide. Also, it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet new people!
