While we’ve already discussed a few ways to make money when you’re a little light on cash, today we’re going over even more! These are some of the quickest and easiest ways to make a bit of money while you’re stuck at home. We all know what it’s like to be broke and scavenging for cash. Here’s how to fix that problem!

Taking Online Surveys

Did you know that there are websites out there that will pay you to take surveys? It’s true! Just for taking the time to fill out a survey, there are companies that will pay you a bit of money. This is a quick way to make a bit of pocket money while you’re just passing the time at home. You can even do these surveys while watching TV or sports in the background!

Remember, however, that the best payouts are going to be for the longest surveys. So, if you want to make a good bit of money, be prepared to sit down and answer a lot of questions.

Mechanical Turk Work

Working on microtasks, such as through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, is another way to make a bit of money from your computer. Most of these tasks don’t take long to finish, but they also don’t pay a whole lot. However, if you just need a few bucks for money for lunch, doing a few hours of turk work while you’re on the couch can help you make up that difference.

However, we wouldn’t recommend completing microtasks as a primary method of income. The work can be lengthy and tiresome if you’re trying to make a normal paycheck’s amount of money. Instead, use this as a way to make some spending money in your downtime if you’re a little short for cash.

Tutoring Services

Is there a subject you’re particularly knowledgeable in? If so, you could make a bit of money on the side by tutoring. Maybe you’re a great writer and could help tutor students in English. Or, maybe you love math, and could easily teach some struggling students how to excel in the subject.

There are websites that you can offer your tutoring services through. This way, you can do something you enjoy, make some money, and help students all at the same time. You could even leverage this experience if you’re looking to land a job in education later on! In either case, it looks great on a resume.
