1. Start a blog or online business

Online business is how I’ve made a living since 2003 and what has helped me retire early.  I make over $20,000 a month through my blog. You can create your own blog here with my easy 15-minute step-by-step tutorial.  You can start a blog for as little as $2.95 a month (less than a cup of coffee!).  Create a blog and leverage it into affiliate sales or product endorsement deals. Consider topics like:

  • Travel
  • Cooking
  • Health
  • Technology
  • Personal finance
  • Just about anything else

Be a caregiver

29. Pet sitting

Do you adore pets? Go for pet sitting at your place. Make sure your house can accommodate numerous pets.

Websites like Care.com brings together pet sitters and people looking for pet care. Remember to quote your rates wisely.

30. At-home daycare

If you are home with your children, why not start an at home daycare.

They are highly sought out in our area of Dallas because people like that they are close and that there are much fewer children involved that a more corporate daycare.

You will need to get a certification from your state, but you can make big bucks caring for children while getting to spend the day with your children as well.

Get Creative

31. Calligraphy

Do hand lettering for invitation cards, wedding cards, and other stationery. Use your favorite font combinations and start off with your calligraphy adventure. Look at the Etsy Calligraphy section.

32. Transcriptionist

Even if you don’t like your writing skills or have a programming talent, you can still do freelance transcription. Transcribing is detailed work, but luckily you can do it any time of night or day. Check the same sites listed above.

33. Cook

A college friend makes the most beautiful cookies and finds events to sell them all year long – birthdays, holidays, football parties, the list is endless.

Some people love to cook and bake. If this is you, consider running a catering business from your kitchen. Bake cakes or cookies for birthday parties, dinners, or other events.

Make sure to abide by the food safety laws and have fun.

There are many moms who don’t have time to make homemade food for bake sales and parties and families who want a holiday feast without the trouble.


34. Start a side business

Become an online personal stylist or the many other options to start something on the side. It will take effort, but there are many different routes you can go.

You can work with an existing company, like Avon, Jamberry, and Stitch Fix, which will help you get started. Or find a need in your community that might need addressing. Do local companies need your accounting skills?

Rent your things

35. Rent your parking space

If you don’t use your parking spot during your working hours, consider renting it out on Craigslist.

36. Rent your automobile

Not using your car while on a trip or weekend? Rent it out. RelayRides and GetAround will assist you in this while paying you on a per hour basis.

37. Rent your clothes online

If you have a closet full of clothes that you haven’t worn in a long time, rent them out. Sites like RentNotBuy and Loanables make this possible.

If they don’t fit anymore or not fitting your current lifestyle include them in the garage sale or selling online mentioned above.

38. Rent your bike, cycle, snowsports, or any other gear

When not in use, rent out your favorite equipment. You can use Spinlister to rent your sports gear.

39. Rent out your studio space, music instruments

Make money from stuff you already own

Making money is a hobby that will complement any other hobbies you have, beautifully. – Scott Alexander

40. Tidy up

You probably have much more stuff than you realize. According to The National Association of Homebuilders, the average house size in 1973 was 1,644 square feet. That grew to 2,624 square feet in 2014. Clean the dust, sort out your storage closet, and put up a garage sale.

If you are overwhelmed with “stuff” in your house, check out a great book called, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. The book is about changing your perceptions of your things so you can keep what is really important and get rid of what is not.


41. Sell your antiques

Did you collect things when you were younger or have items that fit your last home but don’t fit your new one? Get out all your collectibles and sell them off. If some are antiques or collectibles, make sure to get them appraised. Otherwise, you may sell some rare items at low prices.

Sadly my long kept collection of Star Wars and X-Files trading cards were only selling for a few cents on eBay, so I decided just to keep them for the memories.


42. Flea market tossing or flipping

If you have a crafty side, put it to good use. Visit the nearest flea market, Craigslist, or Freecycle.org and buy some interesting items, restore them, add your special touch, and resell them for a profit.

Think about refinishing tables or converting old plates into art. Turn trash into treasure.

If you need ideas, check out Pinterest. It has a world of ideas, and you’d be surprised how much people will pay for a custom baby nursery lamp or a re-stained bar from the 70s.

If you enjoy this type of work, consider starting an Etsy store. One of my wife’s friends felt staying home with her two boys was great, but she missed having an artistic outlet. She researched what was popular on Etsy and started making artistic versions of people’s photos. It only took a few months for her shop to become as busy.

 43. Sell your cell phone

Whether a new model or an old one, you can sell your cell phone. You can go for Amazon that gives gift cards for working iPhones, or websites like Gazelle that give you cash for that old phone.

44. Return printer cartridges

Hand in your empty printer cartridges to office supply stores like Office Depot, Staples, etc. for free credits.

45. Sell your old snapshots

Do you have some random pictures lying somewhere or taking computer space? Sell them on stock photo sites like Shutterstock.

Such websites purchase photos from anyone. Even if you feel that the images are not worth selling, just give it a try. Very often, the most neglected pictures of everyday objects do the trick, like a simple pen and paper.

46. Bed and breakfast or AirBnB

You already have a place to live. If you live near a college campus with visiting parents or near music or sports venues, consider starting a little bed and breakfast.

If that seems too hard, check out sites like AirBnB, which help you rent safely and ensure you get paid. I used this service when traveling in Switzerland with a friend and can confirm it is a great service.

Sign up with my link and you’ll get $35 off your first booking!


47. Sell online

A garage sale might not be your style, or maybe you only have a few really nice things you want to sell. Consider selling on Ebay, Craigslist, and Facebook groups.

My wife sold some Kate Spade purses that she no longer used and made much more by using Ebay than trying to sell locally. She started by asking a very low price for the purses and the bidding drove the price up much higher than she expected.

48. Open a bank account

A simple Google search for banks giving bonuses for opening accounts returns a list of current offers. Be careful to read the requirements, but if you have time, you can make a few hundred dollars.

49. Sell your books

Check out this recent story from frugal living expert Lauren Greutman:

My 10-year-old son brought home a book from our park’s free library box. It was a biology textbook – teachers edition. He said it looked interesting and hey, it was free (having no idea you could sell it). I scanned it in my Amazon seller app and realized it was worth around $150. He was so excited. We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!

My father-in-law did this with his old seminary books. I couldn’t believe that books 30 years old were still worth so much!

Even regular books can earn you money. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents to dollars for each of your current books. It saves space on your shelves for something new, and you earn a few bucks.

But if you want the most cash for your books, check out getting rid of your old books using BookScouter.

  1. Enter the ISBN of your book into BookScouter
  2. BookScouter searches their database for the highest paying book buyback companies.
  3. Once you find the company offering you the most money for your books, you fill out some information
  4. Ship off your book, and get paid! Most companies offer pre-paid shipping labels which saves you time from having to print shipping or go to the post office. It’s super easy!

50. Shop online and earn cash back

Sites like Fat Wallet pay you back when you shop at their store. This can mean discounts for you or simple cash back deals.

51. Buy groceries and get rebates

Many rebate apps like Ibotta offer cash rebates on grocery store purchases. You just have to take a picture of your grocery receipt with your phone, and you can even buy groceries from your regular grocery store.


52. Share what’s in your fridge

The Nielsen Consumer Panel offers gift points to look what’s in your fridge. You just have to scan barcodes of your fridge products and send it to them. Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, you scan all of your purchases and transmit the data. You may also be contacted from time to time about your opinions and to answer questions.
  2. Being a panelist takes about an hour a week.
  3. You accumulate points with each interaction and earn more points the longer you’re on the panel.
  4. When you’re ready, you cash these points in to get rewards.

53. Sell your junk mail

Do you love getting junk mail? If you’re like me, you probably don’t – that’s why we call it junk! Other than recycle, trash, or burn it in the winter what can you do with it?

The Small Business Knowledge Center is a market research company that will take your junk mail and email and give you a Visa prepaid card.

  • Shame on you Scott, you must be getting a paid to promote these scamming sites ie Swag Bucks. No company should ask you your current employer’s annual salary or how many employee and then ask for your company email and phone number. My advice is anyone thinking about using this site, please read the reviews of the apps and beware of downloading any software to your computer. There is a strong possibility your personnel information is being hacked.

    • Thanks for your comment Teresa. I’m not a SwagBucks affiliate and receive nothing from them. You can Google ‘Is SwagBucks legit’ and see that it is. Correct, if one of the rewards from the site is asking for too much personal info, simply don’t participate or put in bogus info. When I signed up and clicked on the WalMart coupons, I got directed to WalMart.com. There was no software no download and install. Like the article says, these sites are legit and have been vetted or they wouldn’t be on the list.

  • Hi i was interested in the rate pizzas one but i clicked on it but nothing comes up just says dose not exceist do you have any other lists of companies that do this? thanks

  • Attention! Attention!! Attention!!!

  • Good article =) I earn money by parting in surveys and playing online (I like online casino so I play sometimes on 777.spinslot.com). Also I want to try trading on Forex. Does somebody know smthg about this?

    • I briefly checked it out. It looks like $0.10 per quality lead, as defined by their algorithms. So you couldn’t click and ad 10 times and expect to make $1. In my opinion it’s harder than it sounds to make any real money at it. But if you can drive a qualified audience to their website it could work.

  • If you live in California, another quick and easy way you could make $20 is by signing up to save energy with OHM Connect! This program was designed to have residents turn off things like lights, AC, your computer for one hour a week in order to reduce energy from the major power plants that suck up so much! on top of it, OHM is giving $20 to each person who signs up. this is 100% free, legit and theres no credit card required. all you have to do is link your utility account and you’re in! you’ll also be able to cash out your $20 into your paypal account instantly! sign up here: http://ohm.co/8e9776

  • In Canada, Tangerine is offering a pretty good deal for opening up a no-fee bank account 🙂
    Simply go to Tangerine.ca and open up a Savings account with a $100 deposit (Type in Orange key code 30790282S1) before May 27. You get $50.
    After that date it’s $25.
    Then open a Checking account and either transfer your payroll or any Pre-authorized Withdrawal. Make sure it clears before May 27. You get another $100.
    They also have two other promotions totalling $50 on their website. Easy money and a great no-fee bank!

  • Don’t believe a thing on these online money milking scams……sssshhhh, I meant online “money making schemes”…..if you are seriously making money from an idea would you reveal that to the whole world so as to create competition for yourself or would you rather protect the barrier to entry?

  • I recommend “Medical Coding and Billing” as a wonderful work from home option. Yes, you will need training. You can’t just code medical records without having proper training. However, this is a real and promising career. I used to work for “Career Step” and they have an awesome Medical Coding and Billing course.


    Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. Their program is approved by the American Health Information Management Association and the American Academy of Professional Coders. They work specifically with a company called IOD inc. that hires their grads to work from home right out of the program.

    The average salary for this career is about $40,000. Their entire program including books, instructors and job assistance is around $3,000 and they offer sweet payment plans.

    Note you have to hook up your utility account to get the bonus. I’ve been using it successfully for about 6 months and make about $20/month. It’s awesome! Some news articles about them:

    • Hi Jamie, I haven’t used it myself. I think it could but it depends on how much you’re going to hustle. The nice thing is there is a 60-day money back guarantee, so there is no risk other than time. I’d just make you set an alert on your digital calendar to remind you in 58 days to cancel if you find you’re not putting the time into it.

  • I think for international people Make money from home could be started from here. Thank you scoot, very good resource and details. Also another good and reliable way to make money from home is this bit.ly/1TB8Ahs

  • Hi Scott I’m so desperate to find a legit way to make money from home these sound good but do you know of any type of customer service on any type of marketing company that connected to FB or Twitter without needing money to start

    • Hi Les, Do you mean you want to do marketing or customer service from home? If so you should consider connecting with a company that provides virtual assistant placement. If you want to be some type of contractor, Upwork.com is the leader in contracting services for all types of jobs (including marketing and customer service). I use Upwork all the time. In fact I have two jobs being worked on right now through them.

      • Scott is there one site you can go to maybe enter my info and some criteria and legit companies respond to you ?

        • Hi Les, I am unaware of a central repository where you can post your availability for tasks. In Upwork if you post your profile and skill set, sometimes employers will reach out to you if they are looking for something specific (like you’ve worked in a specific industry or have a certain knowledge base). But most of the time it’s up to freelancers to apply for jobs.

      • I work from home and do a number of administrative, data entry, and internet research type tasks for a local marketing company. I tried finding work on sites like Upwork.com, but was unsuccessful. The way I found my current clients are by advertising my skills in the Resumes section of Craigslist. I did not list any personal details with the ad, but put down “resume available upon request”. After a little while you get really good at “weeding out” the “scam” responses. Anyone who is not willing to do a Skype (with video) or in person interview is not worth your time. Your whole attitude changes when you look at it from the point of view that “you choose who you work with”. You are interviewing them just as much as they are interviewing you.

        I am at the point now where I would like to earn some passive income rather than hourly. I am tired of trading time for money and would like to pay off my debt, do some traveling and a couple of big projects I have had on the back burner for several years. I am not looking to be inundated with endless affiliate offers. I have seen everything under the sun when it comes to building an online business.

        • Hi Megan, Yes I think electronic products (books, courses, training, membership sites) are a great source of passive income. But I wouldn’t say anything is easy about the marketing, no matter what people try to sell you. We’re going to be rolling out some more online business focused articles over the next several months. Your question isn’t something I can whip out an answer to quickly, but I’ll make sure I add it to the queue of topics we’re working on.

  • By taking advantage of the ClixSense online advertising program, as a potential online consumer, you can actually get paid for your web browsing, up to $0.02 for every website visited. The income you earn is paid directly to you every month. The best part about the ClixSense program is that as a potential online consumer, there is no charge to register your new account and begin earning money immediately. http://csl.ink/2131

  • Hi Scott, great content …The company I’m with it’s called MOBE (my own business education ) is a unique affiliate program that pays out up to 90% in commissions, it is by far one of the fastest and easiest way to get started making a significant income online. Last year it paid over 50 millions in commission … you don’t need no special skills ..people from allover the world are joining from 40’s to even 80 year old … there is a 21 step training you need to get for $49 dollars …than you are signed to a coach to help you along the way (which is amazing ). If you don’t think it’s for you … 30 days money back .. you have nothing to loose. You can make commissions from $1250 up to $10,000 … in less than a month.

  • most of these ways to make money cant really work for those that dont live in the united states ive tried

    • You are right, this mostly for US people – and most ways are more just for fun then to make real money, even for them!

      But there are real and proven ways how to make a living from not mentioned here – and that work for both US and non-US people! I started few weeks ago and already have more then $500 in my pocket!

    • Hi D’Andre, Yes I received your email – I’ll get back to you by end of day Tuesday. I’ve been traveling on business for the past 3 days and rolled in last night at midnight. I get tons of emails and sometimes it takes a few days to reply to everyone, especially when I’m not in my office.

      • I’m sorry, guess I should’ve realized I can’t assume you’re free.. seeing how successful you’ve become.. congrats haha

  • I got my already programmed and blanked ATM card to withdraw the

    maximum of $50,000 daily for a maximum of 20 days. I am so happy about

    this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $100,000.

    MRS MARY is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though

    it is illegal but it is something nice and she is not like other scam

    pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when

    using the card. get yours from her. Just send her an email On


  • I finally decided to read one of these articles in an internet
    newsgroup describing how to make $50,000.00 in only one month from a $5.00 investment.

    Of course I thought this was ridiculous ,or some type of pyramid. Im the type of person whos tried all online surveys and found out that it doesn’t work. But, hey, what’s $5.00.

    Markus Valppu says he made $57,883 in four weeks. Dave Manning claims he made $53,664 in the same amount of time. Dan Shepstone says it was only $17,000 for him. Do I know these folks? No, but when I read how they say they did it, it made sense to me. Enough sense that I’m taking a similar chance with $5 of my own money. Not a big chance, I admit–but one with incredible potential, because $5 is all anyone ever invests in this system. Period. That’s all Markus, Dave, or Dan invested, yet their $5 netted them tens of thousands of dollars each, in a safe, legal, completely legitimate way.

    Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:

    STEP 1. Invest your $5 by writing your name and address on five
    separate pieces of paper along with the words: “PLEASE ADD ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST.” (In this way, you’re not just sending a dollar to someone; you’re paying for a legitimate service.) Fold a $1 bill, money order, or bank note inside each paper, and mail them by standard U. S. Mail to the following five addresses:

    1)- Matthew Kulbacki 1025 12th street Golden, CO, USA 80401
    2)- Nikki Robinson 2324 Frederick Place Valdosta, GA 31602
    3)- Ross O’Brien 1040 pine lane Lafayette,CA 94549
    4)- Brooke Frieman 2451 N. Rainbow blvd. Unit 89108, Las Vegas, NV 89108
    5)- Chris Taylor, 6203 Orr Drive, Red Deer, AB T4P 4C1, CANADA

    STEP 2. Now remove the top name from the list, and move the other names up. This way, #5 becomes #4 and so on. Put your name in as the fifth one on the list.

    STEP 3. Post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. There are at least 17000 newsgroups at any given moment in time. Try posting to as many newsgroups as you can. Remember the more groups you post to, the more people will see your article and send you cash!

    STEP 4. You are now in business for yourself, and should start seeing returns within 7 to 14 days! Remember, the internet is new and huge. There is no way you can lose.

    Now here is how and why this system works: Out of every block of 200 posts I made, I got back 5 responses. Yes, that’s right, only 5. You make $5.00 in cash, not checks or money orders, but real cash with your name at #5. Each additional person who sent you $1.00 now also makes 200 additional postings with your name at #4, 1000 postings. On average then, 50 people will send you $1.00 with your name at #4,….$50.00 in your pocket! Now these 50 new people will make 200 postings each with your name at #3 or 10,000 postings. Average return, 500 people= $500. They make 200 postings each with your name at #2= 100,000 postings=5000 returns at $1.00 each=$5,000.00 in cash! Finally, 5,000 people make 200 postings each with your name at #1 and you get a return of $50,000 before your name drops off the list. And that’s only if everyone down the line makes only 200 postings each! Your total income for this one cycle is $55,000. From time to time when you see your name is no longer on the list, you take the latest posting you can find and start all over again. The end result depends on you. You must follow through and repost this article everywhere you can think of. The more postings you make, the more cash ends up in your mailbox. It’s too easy and too cheap to pass up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    • This is fracking brilliant! I have an even better idea. If everyone who reads this will send me $5 in cash, I will make a lot of money, and you will only be out $5. We all come out winners. Except you. Here’s my address:

      Enterprise Innovation Group, LLC
      2560 King Arthur Blvd, Suite 124-107
      Lewisville, TX 75056

  • Hi, my name is Natalie. I’ve always loved finding thrift store goods, whether it be clothes or something my husband and I can repurpose or refurbish.
    I’ve also, since I was younger, wanted to open up a thrift store where my husband and I could show off our fashion styles, how we repurpose & refurbish items and also our design knowledge.
    But like everything else it takes money & time to start anything and turn it over quickly for a profit.
    What are some ways we could get started with our passions and still have time with our family and still pay our bills?

    Thank you for your time

  • Am carlos from mexico. i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called Donard. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. 3 days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5000 daily. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $30000 in one week without any stress of being caught. I don’t know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address dovantajosef2016@hotmail.com. And I believe they will also Change your Life. emnail: dovantajosef2016@hotmail.com
