Finances are a little tight, cupboards may be a little bare and toilet paper rations depleting. I am going to help you out the best way I can and show you a few different side hustles you can do online. Hopefully, you will be able to find something within the list to help you out while you are unable to work. We are all in an unusual state right now and what makes it a little easier maybe is that most of us are all going through the same thing.
The first question you should ask yourself when looking for a side hustle is, what skills do you have?
Once you have this question answered than you need to find out how much time you have available to dedicate to your new side hustle.
Now that you have these two questions answered you are ready to look for a side hustle that suits you!
What Are The Best Side Hustles For 2020
This year has been a strange one! I don’t think I even have to reference what is going with the world but it does have an impact on how we are making our money right now.
My husband and I have been making ends meet in creative ways, lately. Some of the things we have been doing, I will list below!
Make Some Extra Money By Playing Games Online
You will not get rich but you will pay for your Netflix subscription!
Mistplay pays you to play games online, how fun is that! Right now I am playing Coin Master and paying for my Netflix subscription. My husband is using his winnings for Wish!
While you are playing your games and leveling up you gain points through the app and you can cash out at $5 or save up for larger amounts.
They have Amazon, Apple, Xbox, Visa and Cineplex gift cards.
As you can see above the payout is real! I am a skeptic too so I can attest that they do payout!
If you are looking for a way to make a little money fairly quickly, this is one of a few side hustles you can do online.

Sell Your Stuff On Facebook Marketplace
Since you are at home anyway, why not go through your home completely and do a thorough decluttering session!
Start one room and grab a couple baskets and garbage bags, and actually take it one wall at a time!
Whatever is on that wall, for example, your dresser, go through completely first and then move on.
Pick out what you have only used in the past year, I’m being generous because most people say 6 months, and put it away!
Check out how Marie folds her clothes! I know you have already binge-watched her show on Netflix!
After you have completely put everything away, look at the clothes you have left and decide which you will donate, sell or throw away. Use your baskets and garbage bags to categorize each pile.
Now that you have the inside of your dresser done don’t forget the stuff that you have on the top of it!
Go through the same steps for all your knick-knacks that you display and then you can move on to the next section of that wall!
Take your time and go through your whole home in this way and before you know it you will have a couple of large piles to go in the garbage and the donation bin!
But you will also have a large basket filled with items you can sell locally!
Grab your camera and get excited!
All you have to do now is take some nice pictures of your items and add them to Facebook Marketplace and wait for the money to roll in!
Check out the video below for some inspiration.
My husband and I love this and have sold all kinds of different items on Facebook. This is one of my favourite side hustles that you can do online to make some quick money.
Make Money Walking Dogs
Love walking and love dogs, why not make money doing it? Rover is an app that pays you to walk dogs in your area.
All you have to do is sign up for an account, wait to get approved and then tell all your friends about your new side hustle!
If you are in my area and need your pooch walked, I love to go on adventures, trust me your dog will love it!
You can also use code CRYSTJ83079 for $20 off your first booking with me on Rover!
Make Money Walking
This app is pretty cool!
If you are outside walking, hiking, jogging, or playing with your kids why not get paid for it?
Sweatcoin lets you do just that!
Download the app and start off with the Shaker plan, which is the free plan, and see if you walk more than the allotted amount. What I mean by that is you can earn up to 10.00 in Sweatcoins a day or 300.00 Sweatcoins a month.
If you want to earn more than that then you have to pay for it.
The app offers you extended trials for being a member. I downloaded a 3 month trial of Crave. And a trial of Audible.
You can save up your Sweatcoins for crazy prizes like a a trip to see the northern lights from a cosy igloo or dine at the Eiffel tower!
Or you can donate your Sweatcoins to one of their great crowdfunding options. Love that!

Love Reading? Write Reviews!
If you are a book lover you can get paid for writing book reviews!
The website is Online Book Club. They offer new authors the opportunity to get their books reviewed.
I just signed up for this myself so I cannot say for sure if you get paid but they seem pretty legit.
They test you out first by offering you a free book as payment for your first review. This is so they can check out your writing style.
Like I said above, I signed up to become a reviewer and then completely forgot I did it.
If you don’t update your review in a timely matter they send you reminder emails.
When I get this book read and the review in, I will update this and let you know how it went.

Start Your Own Website Or Blog
It really wouldn’t be right if I didn’t mention starting your own blog.
Of course, I am not going to get into details because I already have a post for that, I’ll link it below.
Starting your own website can be very lucrative, especially if you are great at selling!
Sign up for some great affiliate programs, I use Shareasale, I find it easy to use and great for beginner bloggers.
Start writing posts about your experience with the products you choose to promote and add links to the website that have your special code. When potential buyers click on the link and buy, you make a commission.
You can also run ads on your site but of course this is not an immediate ROI.
The best tip I can give you if you do decide to start your own blog would be to create your own products. That way all the income you receive is your own!
Create printables such as checklists or planners and sell them on your site for a profit. People live for a quick fix!
Sell Your Clothes Online For Money
I love thrift shopping so this is up my alley! This is a similar idea to selling on Facebook Marketplace. Sell your used clothes on thredUp.
ThredUp is an online retailer that sells used clothes. It’s a thrift store online!
Sign up online and grab a bag or a label and send in your clothes, you can choose to donate the clothes you do not sell or, they will send it back to you for a fee.
I believe this service is only available in the U. S. right now. You can still shop the store, which will still save you money! Here is a free $10 to start your shopping spree!
Become A Freelancer
Probably one of the easiest ways to make some extra money would be to offer your skills and knowledge for sale.
If you are a secretary this idea would be easier for you.
Set up an account with Fiverr and offer your skills to someone who needs them.
Businesses are always looking for someone to do graphic design or digital or content marketing. If you have any of these skills, don’t let them go to waste-monetize them!
Fiverr gives you the opportunity to offer your skills to the public!
They give you all the tools you need to get started and have excellent customer service.
This is a great way to make money and an even better way to get something done for your business for a reasonable price, like a logo, for example!
