Ways To Make Money During The Pandemic

Making money during this time can be easy if you focus and put your mind to it.

Ways To Make Money During The Pandemic

The coronavirus has caused people to lose their jobs, making it hard to pay bills and purchase necessities. It has also made it harder for teenagers to get jobs and save money for college or to pay for their own necessities that their parents won't pay for. Here's some jobs that you can do if you are struggling to make money right now.

1. Instacart

Instacart is what I have currently been doing to make some extra money. You go grocery shopping for other people and deliver it to their house. You get paid from Instacart and tips on top of that. It's an extremely easy and quick way to make money.

2. Working at a grocery store

I've noticed that a lot of grocery stores are hiring at the moment. My friend just got a job at one and she said it pays well and has a flexible schedule. The only thing she personally does not like about it is having to be on her feet for 8 hours straight.

3. Doordash

Doordash is another option to make some easy money. You accept the order, go to the restaurant to pick up the food, and deliver it. It's as simple as that. Just like Instacart, you get paid from Doordash and you also receive tips.

4. Babysitting/Nannying

Some states are beginning to reopen and are allowing businesses to have their employees come back to work. These employees may need someone to watch their kids if daycares aren't open yet. I wouldn't recommend doing this if you don't like kids.

5. Uber

If you have your own car, consider becoming an Uber driver. It pays well and some people may prefer to take an Uber instead of a bus or train right now.

6. Create your own small business

Come up with an idea you are passionate about and sell it! There are tons of platforms out there to help you promote your idea or product. Plus, you would be your own boss and who wouldn't want that?

Get out there and start making money. There are endless options of what you can do.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.

Hittin' the Road Playlist

With the end of August approaching more quickly than many of us would like, the preparation for school is happening in more ways than just one.


The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?
