If you live in a small neighbourhood, you can always offer to conduct some chores for your neighbours for a bit of extra money. These types of jobs can be conducted on weekends so they will not interrupt your current job, and they will keep you active while you are not at work. You can offer to wash your neighbour’s cars or cut their grass. Establish a price beforehand and set up a routine to conduct these jobs either once a week or once every two weeks. Not only does this bring in extra money for you, but it will also help to build a sense of community in your local area.

You can also take advantage of the digital age we live in and set up a small online store. If you are able to create an item yourself that you think would be worth selling, you can sell this online. Alternatively, you can drop ship items to people and promote them yourself. If you want a simple method to do this, you can sell your items on already established sites such as Etsy or eBay. Or if you want to look more professional, you can create your own website and sell your items on there. If you are not confident in building your own website, you can contact a Shopify Website Design company that can build your site for you.

Finally, renting out spaces is a quick and easy way to make some extra income. If you have a spare property or storage space, you can rent this out to people at a monthly cost. Alternatively, if you only have one property, you can choose to just rent out one of your rooms. If you live in a busy town, then you may also be able to rent out your driveway as a parking space to people.
