If you're reading this, I'm earning money in some way. I was compensated with money and/or product. Thanks for helping to feed my family. I also may have a financial interest in companies named.

Are you looking for ways to make some extra cash or ways to get rich quick? You might have excess bills to pay or you might just like having some extra cash laying around. Whatever the reason we have you covered with a few ways you can make some extra cash in no time at all. 

It is also important to remember that if you have side hustles you will usually be classed as being self-employed so you will need to sort out your own taxes. 


If you have experience of working with children then why not think about becoming a tutor. Tutors get to help children with their homework and any extracurricular work that the parents would like their child to do. The most common tutoring for children is exam prep, this is to prepare children for any exams they have coming up at school, either in primary school or secondary school. 

You could also get some childcare work if you have the experience. There are always families calling out for help with looking after their children, either during the day or in the evenings. 

You can charge whatever you like for both these services although there will be an average cost available for that kind of work in your area. 

Cleaning Services 

If you have a flair for cleaning and ironing why not use this to your advantage and make money off it. You could offer a house cleaning and ironing service in your local area. There will always be people who are too busy to clean their homes so if you are good at cleaning and have an eye for detail then this could be the side hustle for you. 

You could run your ironing service as a drop-off and collect if you don’t fancy traveling to lots of different houses. So your clients will drop off their washing and then a couple of days later they come back to collect it. 


Freelancing is one of those side hustles where work will always be available. If you have found your niche then set up a profile detailing your experiences and what you can help with and you will hopefully have work flooding your inbox. You might enjoy writing and typing so why not become a freelance writer, you can get lots of gigs doing this especially from people who own blogs and want their content written by someone else. 

There are lots of websites out there where you can find freelance work rather quickly and easily, you just need to make sure your rates are fair but you don’t overcharge or undercharge. If you don’t charge enough you will be doing a lot of work for not a lot of money and if you overcharge you won’t get as much work as you had hoped for. 

Selling Homemade Items

If you like to get creative in your spare time then you could sell some of the items you make. You might be good at making personalized items such as t-shirts, this will have a steady flow of orders once people hear about the services you offer. People are so very fond of homemade items as they are very special and unique. They make great gifts as well, either for special occasions or as Christmas presents. 

We hope this gives you an idea of how to make some extra money. Go make it, and most of all enjoy it.
