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!

I've heard so many good things about VIPKID. Do you need to have a teaching degree?

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!

Re: Online checking account for business - recommendations?

Hmm... That's a great question. Currently I know about a lot of personal online checking accounts but I haven't really looked into business accounts. It is definitely something I should be doing though as I do plan on launching a side hustle soon. I will keep my eye out and let you know what I find.

I try different side hustles at all times I keep 3 or 4 going to allow me more money to pay down my credit card balances. They have gotten out of control and some of them even got closed on me. After having 5 years of perfect payment history those credit cards overwhelmed me. I do adult CNA work for a disabled family member. I do the errands and the shopping part.

Online checking account for business - recommendations?

I have an LLC for my freelance writing/editing work, and for a few years I've had a separate checking account for those funds. I recently realized that I don't have enough cash in the account to have the monthly "maintenance" fee waived - so I'm losing $15 a month!

Side Hustles

I was first introduced to the concept of a “side hustle” when I saw a YouTube video by The Penny Hoarder talking about them. I was beyond intrigued. I followed a link to one of their articles about different side hustles you can do to make extra cash. I swear there were over 100 options and as soon as I started reading it, I began signing up for nearly all of them. It took hours and has been so worth it. That article has changed my outlook on money and how to spend and save properly. I...

BOGO "deals" - all scams?

I love thinking about the connections between money and psychology, so this deep dive into BOGO deals from The Hustle newsletter was right up my alley: https://thehustle.co/are-buy-o...free-deals-worth-it/ "Studies have shown that consumers will buy two of something when the word ‘free’ is involved, even when they only need one — and the second item often ends up in the trash. If we walk into a store intending to buy one carton of milk, but encounter a BOGO deal and buy 2 cartons, we’ll...

1. I've sold on eBay since 1998, with a few breaks here and there. 2. I range from $200 to $500 a month (profit) depending on how much work I put into it. I do it very part time, less than 10 hours a week. 3. I have always just wanted to do stuff for myself and earn more money on my own, so I signed up. I tend to stick with the same items (or related items), but have changed what I sell over the years; clothing, cellular accessories, card games, stamps/postcards, books, and currently...

I do transcription on the side with TranscribeMe. The most I have made in a month was $600.00, I believe. I found an article about online transcription companies, and I thought it would be a nice way to keep my skills fresh and earn a little on the side. I used to have my own transcribing business but can no longer do it full time after carpal tunnel. So I do it during the downtime of my regular work and enjoy it. Number 1 tip?

Hi, All! I have been selling on Poshmark since 2014. It brought in a good amount of side money when I was consistently posting. However, Poshmark had gotten so saturated. I also recently started selling plants. My aloe plant produced lots of aloe pups, which I have been selling for $3 each. I made $20 so far!

@LeighofMar Cool. That's one I forgot doing. I did some transcription work for an executive search firm back in the early 90s in the evenings after my main job. These were very long 2-person interviews, but it was interesting work. I still have the old transcription machine; this was before the software you use now.

Hi, all. I have been doing mystery shopping and merchandising for over three years now. Before the pandemic hit, I was averaging around $500 to $600 a month. It would vary but I think my best month was around $900. I use several reputable websites (Market Force, Confero, Customer Impact, for example) and some of them offer shops almost all the time in my neck of the woods (I'm in the foothills area of North Carolina.) You have to be detail-oriented and sometimes you have to playact a role,...

Is the PICKL app free? I looked it up on Google and there was mention of BASIC & ESSENTIALS at $14.99, and PRO for $12.99. Also say SHOPPERS FREE APP & BRANDS & RETAILERS FREE TRIAL. I am not shouting, these were the letters that were uppercase in Google. So far I am confused. This app is not in my Playstore and I don't have FB. Can you offer any guidance?

I don't consider it as a side hustle but more of a passive income! I rent out stuff we don't use that much at home and I use a site for that. I've made some good cash from renting out our family's canopy since we only use it a couple of times a year. The golden tickets to renting out are tools and costumes!
