Best ways to make money in your free time

If you’re busy from sun up until the time you lay your head on your pillow at night, you might think that a list of ways to make extra money in your spare time is not applicable to you. After all, between getting off of your full-time job, stopping by the grocery store on the way home, cooking dinner, putting the kids to bed, and getting some housework done, you have no spare time to speak of. 
The good news is that you can make some extra money in literally minutes each day. If you can devote 10 or 15 minutes per day (maybe on your lunch hour or after cleaning up from dinner while the rest of the household is otherwise occupied), you can see your extra cash add up to a nice little egg by the end of the month.

Managing Your Money in The New Year

Write Articles

One of the easiest and fastest ways to start making money online is by writing articles through freelance writing sites. The concept is simple: Websites and brands need new site content all the time and they are willing to pay outside writers to get the work done. To make this process easier, sites like textbroker allow anyone to join their site and sign up as a writer or a client. Writers can log in, write articles, and get paid for their time, while clients can continually add new projects

Sell Stuff on eBay / Amazon

You’ve always heard of people getting rich off selling items on eBay and Amazon, but you don’t need to have a business degree to figure it out. Anyone can start selling items they aren’t using anymore on eBay in just a matter of minutes. Once you sell your first item, you can quickly find yourself addicted and start making a few hundred dollars per month selling your old and unwanted items. Amazon also offers similar services through their “sell on Amazon” services for anyone who might have their own products or bulk supply. Whilst Amazon can sell any products they want, there are still restricted categories and regulations set in place. You can see details of Amazon’s ungated and restricted categories and useful approval tips and advice here. 

Online Gambling

Making money online comes down to game selection and having clear expectations of what you’re doing. The opportunities are huge, and there are millions and millions to be made if you look in the right spots. Lucky for you, Most new 2020 UK casinos offer promotions such as free bets to try and get you to sign up with them rather than their competitors. You can’t withdraw the free bet, but you can keep any winnings from it. If you are clever you can hedge your bets and whatever the outcome withdraws most of the free bet.


If you’re looking for ways to make extra money in just a few minutes per day, Mechanical Turk (MTurk for short) might be worth taking a look at. The idea is that companies can hire people to complete tasks, called Human Intelligence Tasks (or HITs), that a computer can’t do as effectively as a human. The types of tasks that you might do on MTurk are simple; they’re just not done as well by a computer. For example, you might tag certain objects in an image or choose the best image to represent a product. 

Start a Blog

There are over 300 million blogs on the internet today, and while most of them are just for fun or die out over time, some of them actually make money. Through the use of programs like Google AdSense and affiliate marketing, website and blog owners can make money off visitors to their sites through on-site advertising and recommending products. Best of all, the blogger or site owner only needs to focus on their content creation and growing their audience – the monetization factor and serving ads through Google AdSense is automated and handled by Google’s own directory of advertisers.

There is much more to do out there, but consider starting somewhere and get something out of your spare time.
