Legit Side Hustles to Make Extra Income This Christmas

Side hustles are one of the biggest factors in boosting your income. Along with your primary job, if you do a side hustle, then you can magically increase your total income and it can help you to pay off your debt in time and if you are not in debt it can help you to start saving for the future. These side hustles play a big role to reach your financial goals. Today I will share with you some of the best side hustles that can boost your income. I will go through some of the legit ones and the side hustles that helped me a lot. These side hustles have very less requirements and approximately all the people can do it. So it is better that you should keep a secondary source of income so that if you lose your primary job you won’t go bankrupt.

So now talking about these side hustles, let go through some of them.

 

1- Retail Arbitrage

Retail Arbitrage is a concept in which you but certain things from the seller and then sell those things for a higher price. This is a type of art that you can master and earn a lot of profit in a single sale. There are a many ways you can do this. For example, you can buy things from a garage sale or yard sale for free or some amount, the things may include clothing, games, electronics and toys. Then you can sell these online and manually for a certain higher price to make a profit from it. With the increase in e-commerce industry, you have a lot places online where you can practice this Retail arbitrage. You can use craigslist, eBay or Amazon for these purposes.

 

2- Use Your Car for Side Hustle

Your car can bring in a lot of earning opportunities for you if you have a free time to drive your car. There are many ways through which you can earn through your but I will discuss the important three.

The first thing you can do with your car is to drive people around. You can work as a rideshare driver. There are apps like Lyft and Uber that can help you in this regard but there are certain requirements that you need to fulfill in order to be a rideshare driver. For example, you should have a car insurance, a driving license and you must be more than 21 years old. You can drive according to your own time and schedule and there are no time restriction by the company also. You can earn a steady income from here and could even take this as a full time job. The earning opportunity increases when you compete in contests and win bonuses.

Another way to earn from your car is to deliver food. You can take this as a pure side hustle as there are no long requirements by the companies. For example, you can work with DoorDash as a dasher and for that you would only need a driver’s license and an insurance. Your minimum age requirement is only 18. Thus qualifying for delivering food is much easier than to become a rideshare driver. You can still do this job if you do not have a car but you will need a two wheel vehicle.

One more way to earn from your car is to rent your car out. In this case, if you do not want to drive your car on your own, you may rent it. You do not need to worry about the customers as there is an app named as Turo that will help you in this case. With Turo, you will provide your car on your free days to people who need them and you will be get paid. You do not have to worry about anything as your car will be picked from your home and the car will also get a 24/7 road side assistance if there is something wrong. In case of any damage, the company can pay up to $1 million in the form of insurance.

Thus you can use your car as an earning opportunity that will help you to boost your income.

 

3- Taking Surveys

One of the easiest side hustle is to take surveys. You can just do that in 20 to 30 minutes a day and you can earn some bucks. It is fun when you earn for providing your opinion. This side will not make you rich and you cannot take this as a full time job but still you can earn some dollars in a week. There are several sites that you can use for this purpose. The most famous one is Survey Junkie. At this site you can take multiple surveys in a single day and for that surveys you will earn points that can be further redeemed in to cash and gift cards. This site is also trusted by its users and it has a Trustpilot rating of 4.5 out of 5. There are many other sites like Swagbucks and Inbox Dollars that you can use to take online surveys. In almost all the site you will earn in gift cards and cash via PayPal and other sources.  Joining two or three sites at a time will make a difference.

 

4- Personal Assistant

There are many people in the world who cannot fulfill their tasks and need help from others. The reason could be anything but it could be an earning opportunity for you. By becoming a personal assistant, you will have to do errands on people behalf. For example, you may be asked to drop off the children or perform a certain task. There are many sites that can help you in this regard and one of them is Instacart. At Instacart, you will have to deliver groceries to people places or business. If you cannot leave your home, then do not worry TaskRabbit will help you in this. As a virtual assistance you may be asked to look the appointment schedule, book a ticket to a flight, managing social media, answering to emails and data entry etc. This could be helpful if you have a knowledge of computer.

 

5- Test Websites

Many companies and people want reviews about their new products and websites and this could be an earning opportunity for you. Most of the new website owner pay people to test and review their website and for testing a website you can earn $10 for a 20 minute test. This is a big amount if we talk about side hustle incomes. For testing websites you will need a webcam and a microphone attached with a fast computer. You will have to record yourself and you may be asked to perform certain tasks. When you are finish with this video making and tasks. You will send the video and receive the payment. We can test websites in any free time we have as we just have to provide our response but some time we have to go live with the admin and we could be asked to execute certain tasks live via a Skype call. These tasks may be time taking but they will pay you more than the usual amount.

 

6- Transcribing Audio

Another simple way to earn to as a side hustle is to be an audio transcriber. Like the other side hustles it does not want any time commitments and you can earn according to your own time schedule and hours. This is the type of job that is best for you if you can type and hear well at the same time. As a transcriber, you will have to write down clearly what you listen. A website named as Transcribe Anywhere will help you in this regard and teach you who you can be a transcriber. Many people transcriber for legal and medical purposes and if you become a good transcriber, you can make a lot of money.

 

7- Repair Electronics

Another simple side hustle idea is to repair electronics items and to sell them. If you are good at electronics and could deal with electronics components then you should think about repairing electronics. You can buy damaged electronics and then repair it by changing their components and selling it easily on Swappa. Another app that you can use for this purpose is Decluttr, people sell their old and damaged electronics at Decluttr, you could buy those items and then again doing the same process by repairing them you could make a great profit.

 

8- Washing Cars

Talking about the last side hustle of today, you could become a car washer and wash car of your neighbors for some fast cash. It can be a good idea if you are in teenage. You can ask you friends or find work on Craigslist and other sites like that. You can also offer your services at these websites.

 

So these were some of the legit side hustles that will help you to earn some fast cash. You should not be wasting your time by sitting at your home and you should be the one making money in your every free minute. This attitude will help you to reach your financial goal earlier than you thought. Do comment in the comment section and also share your quries with us.

15 FACTS ABOUT ME

Sometimes when you aren’t feeling up to writing a huge post or don’t have the time it’s nice to have a few posts to fall back on. I have been slightly slack with my blog lately so I have had to dig out one of those posts. This week I plan on catching up and being more present with my blogging. I have updated my editorial calendar over the weekend to help me get excited about blogging.

Todays post will give you a little more insight into who I am with 15 fun and random facts about me. Not surprisingly many of them involve food!

I got my first tattoo on my 18th birthday. A butterfly on my shoulder – so cliché I know! I no longer like that tattoo.

Talking of tattoos, I have 2 others a set of goth wings on my back which after ten years I still adore. Also I have the start of a rose vine on my thigh, I started it for my 20th birthday and then a few days later found out I was pregnant. That was 8 years ago and I still don’t have it finished.

My husband thinks I am completely weird but I love country music. I would rather listen to Chris young, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Rodgers and Tim McGraw over any other music genre.

My favourite movie of ALL time is Dirty Dancing.

I cannot stand mushrooms. They are just gross, the texture is just nasty and they ruin any meal in my opinion. So I went and married a mushroom lover!!

My favourite meal is Steak. It was a toss up between steak and pizza, but ultimately steak would win. 9 times out of 10 no of the ladies want to sit next to me at a restaurant because I love my steak rare. Chips dipped in steak juice is juice the best. Now I really want a steak!

I always fall down the stairs. Usually only a the last five or so, and on the odd occasion I have slid down the whole set. For some reason me and stairs don’t mix, I always slip on them. It is usually the ones at my parents house.

I love to sing. Alone most of the time, although my dad used to give me a tenner to sing karaoke at the pub when I was younger.

I love cake! Chocolate cake, coffee cake, fruit cake. If it’s cake I will most likely eat it with the exception of supermarket novelty birthday cakes. They are just yuk!

My favourite holiday is Christmas!

My favourite animals are Gorillas and lions. I tried but couldn’t choose between the two. I am a leo and that has always drawn me to the lion but Gorillas are so beautiful and interesting I could watch them for hours. Although when I was younger Dolphins would probably be in this list too.

My pic n mix would consist of fizzy bubblegum bottles, white mice, giant snakes, toffee bonbons and chocolate raisins.

My celebrity crush is Jared Padalecki.Yum! David Boreanaz, Charlie Hunnam and Joe Manganiello are also close on this list.

My favourite colour is purple. My wedding theme was purple, my kitchen was purple. Everything should be made in purple.

I hated reading books until I bought my first kindle five years ago, now reading is my favourite thing to do.

NOVEMBER 2021 BUCKET LIST

IT’S NOVEMBER PEOPLE.

November 2017 is here. One month closer to Christmas. The time of year of Christma gift guide, Christmas bakes and makes and everything festive. Halloween has past and Holly and Mauled wine are on their way. I love Christmas. The close has gone back, the nights are getting darker earlier the heating will soon be going on.

  • Finish a wire wrap necklace – I finished my wire wrap pendant at least, it wasn’t the best it looked wonky and I wasn’t too happy with it but practice makes perfect I guess.
  • Finish my felted fairy – I haven’t finished the fairy either. Instead, I have been creating more watercolours and hammered copper bangles. I just have to keep trying new things even if the others don’t get finished.
  • Finish another chapter of my story – Another chapter down and moving onto the next one.
  • Start preparing for Christmas – it’s official, I have started my Christmas shopping.

TEN YEARS TOGETHER

Today I am celebrating ten years together with my husband. Not ten years married but ten years together, as a couple. Ten years of kisses, late night giggles, and hugs, ten years of tears and emotion.Ten years of waking up next to him.

I don’t know how we have managed ten years together, it sounds like a long time to be with one person yet the time has gone in an instant. Ten years has brought us three beautiful children a marriage and a home to make memories in.

I know that my husband will get a notification once I press publish on this post and I know that he will read my post like he does every other post I write. So this post is all about YOU my husband, my friend, my forever. So when you come home from work tonight you can say like you do every time you read my post, I found some more stuff out today that I didn’t know.

We were young when we first met, I was 19 and you were 21. I felt an instant attraction to you, even if I was blind drunk. You didn’t know me, you didn’t have to care but you did, you held me up and made sure I didn’t get hit by a car crossing the road. We danced and said goodnight. Back then I would not have had the confidence to ask for your number, it was lucky that you are my cousins best friend. He gave me your number and gave you mine and the rest is history.

Over the years our relationship moved fast, we were expecting our first baby after five short months together, and you moved into my parents after 9 months together.

I wouldn’t say that this past ten years hasn’t always been easy because we have certainly had our rough times. But those moments are just a fraction of who we are as a couple.

You are my rock when I am sad, you hold me and don’t say a word when I just need to be comforted. You give me space when I am in a bad mood, you make me a brew even though it is my turn to put the kettle on. You let me go to bed and read even though the kids are still running around like lunatics. You put up with me when I act like a four-year-old hyped up on sugar late at night when I don’t shut up. You listen to my crazy conversations when my mind has run away with my mouth and all you really want to do is tell me to shut up. You believe in me and encourage me to do the things I love even when I get frustrated when it goes wrong.

I love the way that we still kiss each other three times whenever we say goodbye, hello, goodnight or at any opportunity, we get to kiss each other. I love that sometimes you tease me by giving me two kisses and because you are a giant I can’t reach to get the third. I love that I know what you are thinking or going to say before even you know. I love that you randomly text me ‘I love you’.  I love that even after ten years together I can honestly say that I love you more today than any other day we have been together and I will love you more tomorrow than I do today.

I couldn’t have fallen in love with a better husband, father and friend. And even though there are times you make me mad every day you somehow make me smile.

We have been together for ten years and we still have another lifetime to go.

LITTLE LOVES 1

I can’t remember where I first seen the little loves post. When I find it I will link to the page.

This may not be a weekly post but a when I remember to do it kind of post, but none the less here is post 1.

READ

I have been reading Being Brooke by Emma Hart for a couple months now. I read a good third of the book in a couple of days but have been so busy that I have only managed half the book since Christmas. I am determined to finish the book by next week. I love Emma’s books and have read almost all of her novels.

WATCHED

Netflix has taken over a lot of my tele time of late. This week I watched don’t trust the B***h in apartment 23 again. Once I had completed that I found a tv program I hadn’t seen before. The witches of east end which I am quickly getting through. It is only two seasons so I am sure when it is finished I will be left disappointed with un answered questions of what happened next. I am a sucker of supernatural programs like Charmed, The Originals, Lucifer, and Supernatural. Talking of Supernatural that was back last week and I am so excited to get stuck into that series over the next cold and rainy months.

MADE

So I didn’t make this as such, however I have been spending the week putting together the kids Playmobil sets they had received for Christmas. There was loads and I decided to wait until the kids had gone back to school before I made them. That counts as my mad for the week right?

WORE

I am a big fan of nail wraps. Although I have ye to buy Jamberry they are my next treat. I have however tried a few nail wraps from my local beauty shop. This week I am sporting some funky blue spot/stripe nails. After biting my nails over Christmas they are now long enough to wear wraps once again.

AND LASTLY

BG2 took her first few steps this week It is so exciting. She is still very unsteady and not sure of herself but it is the cutest little thing I have ever seen.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY BIG GIRL

It’s official! I am the mother of an 8 year old. Seriously 8. It has been 8 years since I lay in that hospital bed with my little 5lb 3oz baby girl. She is my eldest and my mini me. She is smart, polite, caring and an incredible little girl.

I find myself smiling everyday as I watch her crazy ways of life. She is loud and entertaining yet shy and quiet at the same time.

Today she woke at 6:20am eager for her birthday celebrations to start. After school we will be heading to McDonalds once again for her birthday tea with her brother, cousins and her best friend.

If I could freeze time and stop her from growing up I would do it in a heartbeat. She is at a lovely age. The age where they still believe in magic and fairy tales but also at an age where you can have a more grown up conversation with.

When it was LM’s birthday I did the birthday interview, now it is BG1’s I am doing the same.

UNPREDICTABLE WEEK

I have been pretty in active online for the past couple weeks. Sometimes life just throws you a curve ball and you end up of course. I hadn’t been feeling great – I felt like I had swallowed razor blades. I just didn’t have the motivation to get writing.

To top the end of that week the hubby ended up having an operation and was on bed rest for the week. Which meant everything was left to me. I am so glad he is feeling better and has gone back to work today. But now it is also my week back to work and that really depresses me.

In fact I have lost motivation for everything. The weather is horrible, my writing has taken a back seat. Everything just seems un interesting to me.

This week I am hoping to get written and published an update on BG2 development. It’s LM’s parents meeting tomorrow and I would also like to do an update on him, and then by the end of the week get an up to date post on BG1 too.

Let’s see if I can get motivated this week.
