Re: Side Hustles

Crystal ·
I’ve done several side hustles. I’ve babysat, mystery shopped, product testing, focus groups, medical studies, let a beauty company test hair products out on me (this was my favorite because I got a free blowout and $40), Amazon delivery, and delivering organic fruit and veggie boxes for a local company (I got to take my daughter plus pay and all our fruits and veggies were free). Currently I’m trying out buying liquidations and reselling on Poshmark and eBay. We’re currently saving money to...

My "side gigs" started when I was in sixth grade (age 12) and I haven't stopped even in my retirement. I was working five or six side hustles through my junior high and high school years... yup, back in the 1970s! You've surely heard of teen millionaires, right? Well, I was NOT one of them. I was, however, able to support private art lessons and supplies in the following ways: Selling unimprinted calendars in the Fall / Winter with overstock from neighbors who ran a printing press in their...

I started a side gig back in the day when it was referred to as "moonlighting" in 1981 and grew it into a profitable full-time business that I continue to operate. I clean up litter outside commercial properties on foot using simple hand tools. It's almost as easy to do as going for a daily walk! My latest side hustle is my book, Cleanlots, that shares my experience with others wanting to do the same.

@Briana so far I like it. I find it easy to use. Out of my personal stuff, I'm selling maternity clothes and baby clothes. I also bought a box of Amazon returns from liquidation.com. After shipping it came to almost $300. The description said it's retail valued at $3300, I'm finding it's actually more. I'm working on looking up the actual retail value of things and posting them for 50% off. There were over a 100 items in the box. There are a few items I'll probably take to goodwill. If all...

@Crystal WHAT! That sounds like an incredible plan. You'll definitely have to keep me updated on how it goes. Do you see yourself consistently buying from liquidation.com and then selling?

@Briana- that's my plan. I'm a SAHM with a 3 month old and 2 1/2 year old. I'm working on trying to get everything posted on Poshmark when my kids are napping or after they go to bed. My goal is to post at least 5-10 items a day.

@crystal How much roughly do you pay for shipping on Poshmark? Also, how are the fees on Poshmark?
Reply

Re: Side Hustles

Crystal ·
@Candice - Poshmark takes 20% when you sell an item. The buyer pays a set shipping fee. When an item sells, they send you the shipping label. I bought a 100 poly mailers on Amazon for $12 to ship my items.

I love doing VIPKID the most because I'm a very social person and I get to interact with kids who are excited to learn. The pay is also substantial so that makes the top of my list. I also love the ease of user testing because it takes 10-20 minutes and is decent pay for that little time!

You don’t have to have a teaching degree but you do need a bachelors degree. I have a degree in biology and worked in healthcare for 3 years before I had my daughter. It has been a perfect job for a “stay at home mom” such as myself!

All of these are great ideas when trying to earn extra income. I agree that surveys, etc. can be a big waste of time and really are not worth it. I did want to add that when it comes to getting a second job, working at a fast food place isn't your only option. I personally deliver food in the evenings for BiteSquad as a way to earn some extra money. Depending on where you live, there are many different "on-demand" and "gig economy" jobs that allow you to earn income with a lot more...

I teach English online to students in China! There are 6-month contracts and you can work as little or as much as you want. So if you get hired, you could work more over the summer and less or not at all during the school year! (I don't think I can give out links and I don't want to spam, so DM me if you want more info!)

I would check out WritersMarket.com as it covers this issue admirably. It also has leads on poetry contests and publishers. Checking the 2019 edition out at the library is free, but getting the leads on who is buying what and when has a small fee that you can easily recoup by writing.

Re: Need Help: Prices for Personized Poems

Sounds like your husband has a great way to earn some extra money. I have written a few poems here and there in my life but have never thought about selling poems. As far as the pricing goes, it is going to depend on who you market to. Not everyone I know would be willing to pay for a poem but if you find the right market, you will be able to adjust your prices accordingly. Like I said, I am not experienced in writing poems, but when it comes to writing or providing any creative service, one...

Re: Instacart

Moore Income ·
I do some shopping for them off and on. Honestly, I have only done it two times but I have had a decent experience each time. You get paid more if you sign up to do both the shopping and the delivery but you also have the option of doing one or the other. Out of the two orders I got, one was just pick up and deliver and the other one was shop and deliver. Both times went smoothly and I had no issues. You won't make a killing with Instacart, but it is a great way to earn some cash on the side.

Re: Instacart

Moore Income ·
@Elaine Dalton for the "shopping" part, it will have to be with a store that is partnered with Instacart. I know in my area, the Walmart's are not but if the Walmart near you is, then it should work. The shopper only part is more like a job in that they pay you by the hour. If Walmart is not a partner, I have noticed that a lot of smaller more local grocery stores tend to partner with them so that might ultimately be where you would have to go although that would only work if there was one...

Exactly the message I'm aiming to get through to audiences. And thought this subject line will do just that. Really glad you took the time to read the entire article, because I will never promise audiences impossible results.

Couldn't agree more, especially with the surveys. I notice that both @Moore Income and I have been down that road, and obviously you too @Nathan Taylor . Quite annoying to how much effort you have to apply, only to end up NOT qualifying for the survey ( for a few cents ). The effort never justifies the reward. Surveys also remind me of things like online writing and social media jobs. With sites like " Upwork ", " Guru " and " Freelancer ". Because you also have to qualify for those by means...

Hi @Chuck , Pleasure making your acquaintance, and thanks for reaching out. Let's first look at the "tools" you have to work with. Because I have been working my way through the options (swamp), of making money online since 2012. And I must admit, the real pitfall is that not everything works for everyone.

Hi Chuck! My suggestion is not so much a part time job as it is an easy way to bring in extra cash, but apps like OfferUp and LetGo help you sell used items of furniture, collectibles, etc. If you are on Facebook, Facebook Marketplace is a similar venue. Hope this helps!

Yep! The best resource I have found and personally used to learn how to and also to buy my materials was Candle Science I still have some of my candle making stuff and might even start my biz back up again sometime in the future. I got branding stuff (stickers with logo) etc from Vistaprint. You can find cheaper ones out there it just depends on how much you are going to print.

Hi Chuck, I suggest looking into My Employment Options, a partner of the Ticket to Work government program that assists with employment opportunities for those on SSI/SSDI. They have a specific section for work-from-home jobs: https://www.myemploymentoption...inimum-requirements/ . If you don't qualify for those positions, I also suggest looking at The Penny Hoarder's work-from-home jobs portal . We post a lot of part-time remote jobs there as well. Good luck on your job hunt!

Me too @Bonnie Squires , I tested more systems and programs than I care to recall. But it did leave me with an arsenal of knowledge to create compelling content. And yes you're quite right. My aim is to demonstrate how easy it is to fall in that trap. Idle promises is nothing more than a marketing pitch, and a rather successful one at that.

Re: Anyone ever use the survey site MyPoints?

I signed up for My Points a long time ago but then I must have forgot about it because I just checked back and apparently I didn't even confirm my email address to activate my account. I think my main reason was it does look similar to some other survey sites I have used and I wasn't really sure if it was worth it. Because you mentioned this I went ahead and signed up again to try it out and see if it is worthwhile.

@Briana I will be sure to keep you in the loop. I am really liking Credit Sesame so far because it gives me a really nice overview at how I am doing financially when it comes to debt. I have been considering taking their recommendation to sign up for a card to increase my debt to available credit ratio but since I just paid off a major balance I think it will put me below the 10% usage that they recommend. If that is the case, I technically wouldn't need the card and I am interested to see...

Do you enjoy being outdoors? Would you like to make money going for early morning walks? Then consider providing a litter cleanup service on foot, using simple hand tools, outside commercial properties nearby. I've been doing this since 1981. I started this as a side hustle and grew it into a successful full-time business that I still operate today. Turn trash into cash!

I use both Swagbucks and MyPoints. I like both of them and they are fairly easy to use. Swagbucks has more offers and each swagbuck is equal to a penny when you cash out. MyPoints payout is different as it is 3970 points for a $25 Paypal deposit so it is a bit deceptive when you are earning points until you calculate that each point with MyPoints is $.006.

I saw that you asked if anyone has used My Points. I have been a member for 20 years. For the first ten years I was more active. I earned gift cards for family members and also used gift cards to get fertilizer for my garden. I haven't used My Points as much in the last ten years. They have videos to watch and surveys to take and it really fun to watch your points grow. You can even donate points to different charities. I really have enjoyed using My Points over the years.
