USE EBATES TO EARN EXTRA MONEY
How it works: What Ebates does is give you free money for shopping at stores that you already shop at. All that is required of you is to shop online at your favorite stores through the links on the Ebates website.
It is super easy to use and takes minimal time on your part. When you sign up here you’ll get a FREE $10 Walmart gift card after your first purchase through the site.
The process sounds pretty confusing until you visit the website, then it makes sense 🙂
SELL THINGS AROUND THE HOUSE TO MAKE EXTRA MONEY
Go around your house and declutter, any items that you no longer need or use can be sold to make extra income. Here are a list of websites and apps you can use to sell your used items:
- Use the search term “your city” buy sell trade or “your city” garage sale on Facebook to find groups in your area that are used to sell items (example: “Dallas buy, sell, trade” or “Dallas garage sale”).
- Offer Up
- 5 Miles App
EARN EXTRA MONEY BY BECOMING AN UBER OR LYFT DRIVER
To become an Uber driver you must pass requirements and pass a background check, but after you are accepted you can set your own schedule and make extra money whenever you want. The funds are applied directly to your bank account whenever you want to be paid.
To become a Lyft driver you must past similar requirements as Uber and you can also set your own schedule. Using Lyft’s online calculator, if you drive for 10 hours in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area you can earn up to $200 per week!
If you’ve never used Lyft before and you want to try it out, use my referral link and receive $50 of Lyft credits!
SELL YOUR CLOTHES ON POSHMARK TO EARN EXTRA INCOME
Poshmark is an app you can use to buy and sell fashion. All you do is take photos of your clothing, upload them, and start selling! They handle all of the transactions and hold the money until the buyer receives the product to ensure a safe sale. Once you sell the item, Poshmark will send you a shipping label to place on the package before you send it to the buyer.
There are many companies on the internet that will pay people to write articles to publish on their sites. I have written freelance articles for $100 a piece before.
The best place I know of to find freelance writing work like this is on the “jobs” section of the ProBlogger website. This is a place where these companies can list their job postings and you can go apply for them.
You can also just take a chance and reach out to different bloggers with previous examples of your written work and see if they are looking for freelance writers to contribute to their sites.
START A BLOG
Making money blogging takes a lot of work, but you can do it! One of the best perks about starting a blog to make money is that it is very inexpensive to start up. So you don’t have to spend a lot of money on the business before you make any!
I know bloggers who make a little side money doing it and I know bloggers who have quit their jobs and retired their husbands because of the income that they have earned.

Care.com is a website where people looking for baby sitters, pet sitters, or house sitters can post their jobs and have people apply for them. If you are good at what you do and have experience, you are likely to get hired on for one of these jobs. In my experience they pay really well!
Sometimes people are just looking for someone to take their kids to practice after school or looking for someone to feed their dogs while they are out of town. There are also more extensive babysitting jobs or occasional date night babysitting jobs.
Do you have a special skill that you can offer the internet world? On Fiverr.com people can hire you to do tasks for their business. I hired someone from this site to create my logo and I have also hired someone to create a printable pdf for me.
Some of the job postings are for design work and some are for computer work (like data entry), or web design and coding! There are a TON more things that you can offer to do on this site so be sure to check it out.
Becoming a virtual assistant is relatively easy if you know where to look. A virtual assistant job consists of different things depending on who you are working for, but some of the things you may be doing are…
- Scheduling social media posts
- Writing content
- Administrating Facebook groups
That is only an example. The work can vary pretty greatly. If you want to learn more about becoming a virtual assistant and you have a little money to spend on education, I highly recommend checking out my friend Cynthia and Chrissy’s new course on becoming a virtual assistant! It contains all of the information that you need to know in order to make a full time income from being a virtual assistant.
If you are a crafty person one of the easiest ways you can earn money doing what you love is by selling your creations on Etsy. I am not a crafty person so I have ever sold anything on the site, but I have friends who do sell on Etsy and have created a full time income from it!
These are all real ways to double your income and make money from home. Some will take more work than others, but they will all bring income into your home!
