Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, money is what makes the world go round. You don’t have to have a lot to be happy but having extra cash sure does makes things easier. If you find yourself needing a little extra dough, check out these ignored ways to make money in your spare time.
Drive, Baby, Drive
Most people ignore this easy way to make money. Companies like Uber, make it easy to make money whenever you want. You work when you want to and no one will hound you to otherwise. Have kids? No problem. When your spouse gets home from work, take out the car seats, wipe the crumbs out, and get to it.
I use to work as a server 1-2 nights a week so make some extra income. Though I liked how much money I made, it was physically exhausting. Uber is a safer alternative to breaking your back and making the same kind of cash. They pay weekly and you can earn tips. Cha-ching! Keep in mind Uber only hires people who have reliable cars and can pass a background check.
Ready to start making money? Sign up to drive for Uber here and make as little or as much as you’d like to.
If you’re not quite down for having strangers in your car, here’s another option for you. UberEATS gives you the freedom to make money by simply delivering food. Someone places an order, you pick it up and deliver. It really can’t get much easier than that. No cash handling, no small talk, no moving car seats, just a quick food exchange. I personally am considering signing up myself.
Keep in mind with UberEATS you only need to be 19 years old unlike Uber where you need to be 21 years old. However, you must have 1 year of driving experience with a valid license and insurance of course. However, they offer the option to ride a bike or a scooter to deliver food as well. UberEATS is only open 8am to midnight everyday unlike Uber who is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
Down for delivery food in your spare time? Sign up to deliver with UberEATS here and fulfill those noms.

I have never heard of these options before but I just sent the link to my daughter. She’s starting her own business and could use the extra $ while she builds it up.

I will have to check out this service. I have done stuff with Grub Hub but nothing through Uber. Sounds like an interesting venture.

I’ve thought about this as I love driving but I wonder about picking up irate passengers. The eats side of it could be better.

Uber is not available in my neighborhood. I do not know much about Uber eats but it sounds pretty good.
I’m always teasing my husband to join the Uber Team.
