Christmas is over and the bank account is drained from the excess spending on food, drinks, Ubers, not to mention presents! How can you make a few extra dollars when you are on a fixed income? You could get a temporary second job over the festive season in retail or bars, but let’s be honest, who has the time? Why not pick up a side hustle instead! What kind of side hustle can you earn money from? There is always Uber and Airbnb but there are so many new ways to earn money. Here we take a look at ways to pick up a side hustle.
Renting out your clothes at The Volte
It’s the new year and you have a list of events to attend, not to mention Australia Day is just around the corner. You need fabulous outfits and you are not the only one! The Volte lets you list your items for free and rent it out to any of our thousands of users across the country. With postage and drycleaning all included in the price, what’s not to love? We think hiring clothes is a fantastic way to earn money, not to mention getting access to the latest trends for a fraction of the retail price.
Hiring out your pool
We’ve all heard of Airbnb, but what about hiring out your pool? Swimply is brand new service that just launched in Australia. On the app, you can hire out your pool by the hour with fees ranging from $25 to $50. You can specify how many guests use the pool and the age of guests. Each pool is inspected to make sure it meets local health and safety regulations so you know you’ll be safe. At the moment, this service is only available in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland so east coasters, lap it up!
Become a pet sitter
We all love our fur babies, so what happens when we go away? Well Mad Paws has the solution! It provides pet sitters of all different backgrounds and locations. As a pet sitter, you can look after the animal in your own house or the pet’s house. Easy right? We think this is a brilliant side hustle. You get paid to hang with animals. What’s not to love?
Hiring out your car
So most of us have cars. Often they sit idle in garages and streets not being used. So why not hire out your car and make some money when you otherwise wouldn’t be using it? Car Next Door is the service for doing just that. You can hire out your car for an hourly or daily rate to approved borrowers with clean driving records. When your car is borrowed, it is covered by fully comprehensive insurance and roadside assistance so you’ll be safe in knowing that your car is protected. With over 140,000 users across the country, this app is growing in popularity, and for good reason! An easy side hustle.
Hiring out a car space or garage
With parking at a premium in inner city hot spots, why not hire out a spare car space or garage on Spacer? The app puts you in touch with people looking for a space be it a car space, a garage or a storage space. It costs nothing to list your space and you are fully insured. I can’t think of an easier way to make money!
