5 Simple Ways For A College Student To Make Some Extra Cash

5 Simple Ways To Make Some Extra Cash

Everyone needs money in a hurry from time-to-time. While quick cash won't make you rich, it can help you get some extra cash.


1. Babysitting

Every family needs a babysitter, so I am sure you can find at least 4 or 5 parents who are actively searching for babysitting help in your neighborhood. Babysitters tend to make between $10 to $25 per hour, depending on the family.

2. Garage sale

Got no more use for that tennis racket that has been collecting dust in your garage for the last 7 years? Garage sales are the perfect opportunity to sell old, used items that you have no use for and turn them in for some quick cash.

3. Mow lawns / shovel snow

In the Fall, Spring, and Summer, lawns always need to be trimmed. Take advantage of the opportunity and charge anywhere between $10 and $50 to mow one's lawn. Come winter, snow covers a house's driveway. It is cold, meaning people are usually more willing to pay someone else to do it for them.

4. Uber/Lyft driver

Uber claims that their drivers take home $25 per hour and Lyft claims that drivers can earn as much as $35 per hour.

5. Sell your education.

What do I mean by selling your education?

- Sell old class notes

- Sell study guides

- Tutor other students
