5 Ways to Make Extra Money From Home

It’s already 2021 but due to the pandemic, we’re still stuck at home. But while you’re there, why not use your time to make some extra cash? Here’s a list of five ways to make bank right from your bed. 

Become a Tutor

If you’ve already taken and done well in a course, consider marketing yourself as a tutor to students currently struggling. You can advertise yourself in class facebook pages or ask your former professors if they’ll suggest you to their students. You can also join a tutoring website like TutorMe to teach all different ages and subjects online from home. 

Sell Clothes

When you’ve outgrown your clothes or just don’t want them anymore, consider selling them! Depop and Poshmark are super easy to use and sell your clothing and accessories to people around the world. ThreadUp is another website that you can both buy and sell clothing on, and the sales are through their website rather than you having to set up your own shop. 

Make Something

While you have time to be artsy in quarantine, consider selling your creations online! Etsy is one way to do so, and you can have fun making things at the same time as you make extra money!

Sell Your Books

College bookstores often buy back your used textbooks for partial price and it’s a great way to get rid of books taking up space after your course is over! You can also sell them on Amazon, BookFinder, or BookScouter

Start a Blog or YouTube Channel

Blogging and making videos are great ways to be creative and keep track of your own interests or adventures while also potentially making money. As you reach more people, you can make money through ads, partnerships, or affiliate links. It may take time, but if blogging or making videos is something you think you’d enjoy, it’ll be worth it no matter the profits.

We hope you consider these tips. Good luck!
