Holiday cash

Last week I had the post What’s your side gig? Where I briefly went into some of my various “side gigs.”  Making a little extra on top of the money we make with full time employment.  I wanted to touch base a bit more and tell you about some other ideas I had this week.

I’m starting a small cleaning company to add on some extra cash for the holidays, I’m a Mother of 4 so I need all the cash I can get and Christmas is fast approaching. So I’ve decided to clean a couple homes a week for some extra cash, on top of a little Amazon Mturk link here. Don’t expect major income from MTurk but a little extra can go a long way.

I’ve compiled a list of thing you can do for some extra holiday cash

  • 1. Fiverr  is the go-to spot, thanks to its millions of users and brilliantly simple premise. “Rather than acting as a labor market, Fiverr works like an e-commerce platform, where services are offered as products,” says Aimy Ngo, Fiverr’s business development and marketing strategist. “This makes it easy to control what you will provide and how much to charge.”With more than 100 categories to choose from, there’s a market for nearly every skill, from graphic design and web development to songwriting and astrology reading. When posting a “gig” (Fiverr lingo for your service), include details about the scope of your offering, your availability and pricing.
  • Online tutoring sites such as TutorSkooliWyzAnt and Chegg are looking for patient, creative people willing to use their smarts in a particular academic area to help school kids, college students or adults master that subject. More on Forbes here
  • You can also sell your own stuff and make a good extra income, with sites like Shopify
  • I’m sure you’ve all heard of making money from surveys online, but just aren’t sure which are legit and I understand that completely so here are two that are verified through Money Talks News
  • Swagbucks
  • Point Club

I’ve not tried those but I’m signing up today to see how it goes and I’ll keep you posted on the survey websites.  I’m excited to try it.  I hope this helps you make a little extra cash before the holidays!


Let me know how these work for you!  If you have some success tell us!

Do you have anything to add to this list?  Is there a website that you love to earn extra cash?
