Very interesting reviews. I use Instacart to have my groceries shopped and delivered, and have thought about working with them when I get a car, but I thought more seriously about it... NOT!! I don't do my own grocery shopping!! LOL I like having the groceries delivered, but my shoppers/drivers tend to shop neighborhood stores. Normally, I would not. Some are very inexperienced as shoppers and what you get may not be exactly what you ordered. Food prices are too expensive (can't take...

Since I started delivering for Instacart some time ago, they have implemented something in their app that allows you to pick up any extra orders that people scheduled to work can't do. Since then, I have never scheduled myself for shifts but rather just picked up any orders that I had time to do. I really like the flexibility this allows and it means you can choose to do delivery only orders or do orders that include having to shop for the items. This way, if the distance for delivery is too...

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?

Re: Side Hustles

Kirsten Cherry ·
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!

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.

That's what I was hopping for. I can't drive but I can walk to Walmart and stop and shop, so I figured I could fill orders at least.

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...

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.

What is the payment like, do you have the commercial insurance and or charge GST/ state, provincial taxes?
Reply

Re: Instacart

Moore Income ·
@rtms77 They pay by direct deposit into your linked bank account, or you can cash out instantly for a small fee directly to a debit card. As far as I am aware, they do not provide any type of insurance. What type of insurance you need would probably be a question for your auto insurance company. You are responsible for your own taxes with Instacart. Because you are considered a sub-contractor, you get paid the full amount and then have to pay your own taxes.

So I did Instacart for about 3 1/2 years and this is my review. It’s an easy way to make extra money on your own schedule similar to other gigs such as Postmates, Uber/Lyft, etc. As others have mentioned don’t expect to get rich on this job. My first two years I was making an extra $500-$1000+/month but it’s slowed down since then dramatically. I slowed down over the past year. This is due in part to the pay going way down due to saturation of too many shoppers on the platform/fluctuations...

I’ve worked Lyft, Uber, Postmates, Uber Eats, a food delivery service called Caviar (similar to Eat24 and Grubhub), and yes, Instacart. In evaluating them, I compared the average money I made (including tips) to the time spent actually working for it (not just time spent using the apps, which can be misleading). It came out to: Lyft, $26/hr; Uber, $25/hr; Postmates, $17/hr; Caviar & Uber Eats, $15/hr; and Instacart, $12/hr. Those numbers can be a little misleading, because they don’t...

I've been doing Instacart for about two years. My honest review: + Schedule flexibility. + No people (just groceries) in my car. + Most people tip well, especially on rainy days. + DEFINITELY rounds out the budget - cash-flowed a trip to Disneyland two years ago and I've paid down $8000 in debt over the last year. + I commute over an hour to my primary job, so picking up a batch or two on my way home makes my commute (gas and tolls) tax deductible. + I make enough from my primary job to not...

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...

Too bad I missed the early bird pricing on the event. Who knew you guys would be hosting an event on my birthday when I will be in the area as my wife and I finish up the driving part of our 50 State tour! I will be in Orlando which isn't too far of a drive from the event so I am going to try to see if I can make it work for sure. I don't drink but it will be great to meet some fellow Penny Hoarders and learn from some successful side hustlers!
