No Time? These Side Hustles Don’t Require Any.

If you’re looking for ways to earn some extra cash with a side hustle, you’d likely encounter tons of ways to make more money. If you have a full-time job, children, or already have multiple jobs and very little spare time, most of those options aren’t realistic (unless you give up sleeping). At the end of the day, time is a precious commodity and most side hustles require it. For example, popular side hustle apps like Uber, Task Rabbit or Dolly can generate real money but are time suckers.

However, there are a number of side hustles that don’t require a lot. We’ve gone through the lists for you and found some side hustles that require little to no time. Check them out below and kick off your 2018 year with some extra money in your bank account!


 

Rent out property on AirBnb

If you have spare rooms, renting them out on AirBnB can really rake in some cash with minimal time spent. By taking advantage of features like minimum night stays and additional fees, the average AirBnB host makes anywhere from $850 — $950 a month. If you rent out two rooms at $800 a piece per month, you’ll have $19K by the end of the year.

Pro Tip: Read blog posts by hosts like this and read AirBnB’s host guide to get started, learn more about the process, and get insider tips.


 

Spend Money through Ibotta

The mobile app, Ibotta (also based in Denver!) helps you make money off your shopping or grocery receipts. It’s basically a rebate app, so you can earn anywhere from 25 cents to 5 dollars off everything you buy. Just buy the things you normally do and make money off your purchases!

You can connect your bank account or PayPal to Ibotta and get paid out within minutes of earning the rebate.

Pro Tip: If you’re a coupon-er, you can still use Ibotta and get a rebate for your purchases. This will often result in getting an item for free!


 

Rent out a pickup truck on Fluid Market

Fluid Market is a mobile app that allows you to make income off renting vehicles to your neighbors. Users can rent out anything from a pickup truck to a Tesla Model X — and they can offer it to borrowers for a hourly, daily, or weekly rate. The side hustle on a pick up truck is incredible —  with the average truck lender generating $500/month. This means you can buy a ten-year-old extended bed pickup truck for $4,000 (or $140/month financed over 3 years) off Craigslist, and start making $360/month or $4300/yr. Lenders often buy a few trucks and their numbers multiply exponentially!

To get started, read more on Fluid Market’s website — there’s a blog post specifically geared towards vehicle lenders.


New year, new side hustle — start 2018 off with some side income! Try these apps out and start down the path of turning your side hustle into your main hustle.
