If you needed extra money, you came to the right place.

Here is a list of creative ways in which this month you can fatten your bank account. There is something here, of course, that fits your needs.

Earn up to $22/Hour Picking up Milk For Your Neighbors

You may have heard that you can make money by delivering groceries to other people. But it is stressful enough to do your own shopping. You’ve just learned where all is — now you’re supposed to learn a different store’s aisles?

But an app called Shipt will pay you up to $22 an hour to pick up some extra groceries while you’re picking up your own.

Just sign up online (it’s quite simple to apply). Once approved, choose which jobs you want to take, and Shipt will send you a prepaid card to purchase the grocery store and deliver it to customers.

Earn up to $60/Hour as a Part-Time Bookkeeper

Can you work on a spreadsheet? How does $60 an hour sound? How about the remote freedom to work while helping others to succeed?

To be successful in this business, you don’t have to be an accountant or even good at math. In fact, all you need is decent computer skills and a passion to help business owners deal with problems in the real world.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, median pay is around $19 per hour. It’s a great opportunity for parents who want a part-time job, recent grades from college and anyone who wants to bring real money from home to work.

Get Paid up to $600/Week to Drop off Starbucks

Who hasn’t had a cup of Starbucks?

When you are out on your caffeine fix, an app called Doordash will charge you to offer an additional latte. And it’s not Starbucks alone. You can deliver hundreds of other restaurants in your area from Pizza hut, Taco Bell, McDonald’s, etc.

You set your own hours with Doordash and work as much or as little as you want, which means how much you do.

For each delivery, you will earn money, plus tips. 

You can get your first paycheck this week if you sign up for Doordash now.

Use This Method to Get Checks Totaling $426

Rakuten has the connection with just about every internet store you shop, which implies that every moment you purchase bathroom paper on Amazon, it can offer you a bonus — even book that Thanksgiving trip back.

Use Rakuten to buy things like rental cars and flights that you already have to buy.

Creating an account and starting shopping requires less than 60 seconds. All you need is an email address, so you can start shopping through the site immediately for your go-to stores.

Moreover, if you use them to earn cashback within the first 90 days of signing up, the first check it gives you will offer you an additional $10.

Get Paid For Delivering Food This Weekend

Need a trustworthy side gig? Try to supply Postmates with fresh produce, takeout, and even retail purchases.

The amount you can earn varies, but at a 2015 TechCrunch event, CEO Bastian Lehmann said the median earnings per hour during peak times are $19.

Unlike other apps, when you deliver — no service fees, booking fees or transaction fees — you’ll take home 100 percent of your earnings.

You can deliver by car, bicycle or foot via Postmates. Simply create an account, then within a week you will receive a welcome kit in the mail (a free delivery bag and a prepaid card to make your purchases). Link the card to the Postmates Fleet app and earn extra money.

Depending on a number of factors, the actual amount earned will vary. After each installment, you will see how much you gained and precisely how your income was calculated.

Trade-In Grocery Receipts for Cash

On our groceries, we all want to save money. It’s a ton of work we don’t want to do.

If it sounds like you — someone who just wants to get in and out of the store and save money without thinking a lot — we recommend an app.

It’s called Ibotta, and for purchasing certain products at the grocery store it charges you cash-back.

Search for products on your shopping list in the Ibotta app before shopping. Snap a photo of your receipt when you get home and scan the barcodes of the items.

Ibotta can be downloaded for free. You will also receive a $20 sign-up bonus. How to get it here:

  1. Download the Ibotta app.
  2. Create an account.
  3. Shop and take a picture of the receipt of your goods.
  4. Within 14 days, Redeem 10 offers, and you’ll get that $20 bonus.

You will earn cashback each time you scan a receipt that includes a participating brand.

Go ahead and start by downloading Ibotta to earn cash.

Make Money While Running Errands

We understand the first thing that likely goes through your head when we say riding for Lyft: drunken people piling in your vehicle, loudly reminding you, “This is the best night in my career!” —and maybe in your back seat coughing.

Creepy and weird. Yes, we know. 

But we spoke to several drivers from Lyft who told us another story. Lyft is the ideal way to create some additional cash for them— on their own terms.

For example, Simona Petrescu, who has been driving full-time with Lyft for over a year, earning as a driver over $750 a week.

Best of all, on his own moment, he could do it. It’s up to you to operate days, evenings or weekends!

Earn up to $450/Month To Hang Out With Furry Friends

If you’re looking for a flexible, independent way to make money — and you love to hang out with dogs — maybe Rover is your perfect gig.

Through its 4.9-star-rated app, the online network connects dog walkers and sitters to local dog owners, so you don’t have to staple flyers across the city on every utility pole.

Rover says top sitters earn $450 a month on average.

Here’s how it works: You create an online sitter profile to answer questions about your puppet experience and the availability of your schedule.

You can choose to offer a wide range of services, including dog walking, overnight boarding at home or theirs, and daycare. Boarding is the most popular service of the app, so you can have more gigs by offering it. You’re setting your own rates. (Rover keeps as a service fee a small percentage.)

The way it works is, dog owners will reach out. You have the option to accept the jobs you want, and then begin snuggling the puppies. You will be paid within two days after you complete the service.

Sell Thrift Store Finds on eBay

Selling your belongings on eBay is one way of quickly pocketing some money.

You can also create cash by purchasing inexpensive designer clothes, then selling them to the largest bidder on the web. You can track inventory at local thrift stores if you have an eye for fashion — or at least the most popular labels.

Create listings for your items, make sure to include well-written descriptions of items and photographs of quality to give professional polish to your listings (and get top dollars). Check out similar items to get a sense of where to place your starting bid, and be sure to include shipping costs and seller fees for eBay in your price.

How much money are you able to make? Your profitability depends on what you sell, but Tretina earned $500 to $800 to work 10 to 15 hours a month.
