Holidays are around the corner and you need money!! We all know how expensive Thanksgiving and Christmas can be and it is no fun being broke during this time of the year.
It always helps to have some extra cash to get through the holiday season. Why not start a little side hustle?? The earlier you start, the more money you have to spend on the holidays.
Here are 5 Fall Season Side Hustles to consider:
1) Sell Your Summer Clothes
Take advantage of websites like eBay, Poshmark, and ThredUp that make it easy to post your clothes online for sale. All you need is some decent pics and good description of the items you’d like to sell. If you would like your cash a bit sooner and upfront check out a local Buffalo Exchange store where they give you cash upfront for your clothes or you can trade it in for store credit.
2) House or Pet Sit
Dog walking opportunities get slimmer as the weather gets cold so the next best thing to do would be to pet sit. SitterCity is a great site for anyone looking for baby sitters or pet sitters. Advertise your services on their site and those in need will come to you. You can make about $10 to $20 a day cat watching! Not bad pocket change!
3) Take On a Part-time Gig
Many employers (whether its a desk job, or work in retail) need extra hands around the holidays. For example UPS and FedEx are the busiest around this time with the amount of packages being shipped during this time. You can take on a part-time shift as a driver helper with delivering packages. Another option is seasonal Christmas stores that sell trees.
4) Work as a Tutor
Tutoring is a perfect way to earn extra money, especially if you’re a college student. As a tutor, you generally can work flexible hours, and charge a rate that is a bit higher than what you would get working at a traditional part-time job.
5) Household Duties / Lawn Care
Maybe you have an elderly neighbor who could need some help around the house such as change light bulbs, clean out gutters, or rake up some leaves. Most homeowners have an a long list of things on their to-do lists but don’t have the time. They could be willing to pay someone else to do it. It doesn’t hurt to ask!
