Other Ways to Save Some Extra Cash

IBOTTA  –  Very similar to Checkout51, Ibotta has cash back offers from your purchases. You can select the products that you want to buy so that you can get cash back on it. Then purchase your products at selected stores on their network. Last, take a picture of your receipt and upload it to show proof that you had actually purchased the product. To make life easier, you can download their app to your smartphone to make scanning barcodes and uploading receipts much easier.

CHECKOUT51 – This site offers cash back offers on many different items that you shop for on a weekly basis. Definitely, helps keep your grocery budget low but it’s even better when you can get cash back. They also have an app available to download to make planning for your next grocery shopping trip easier.

EBATES – If you like to do some online shopping, the next best cash back system is with Ebates. This system works by shopping online through Ebates and earn cash back on your purchases. You can receive your cash back in a check form or through PayPal.

$5 Meal Plan – This has been such a time saver for me! This relates to my resource above on grocery shopping. I struggled with meal prepping because I just don’t have the time to spend looking for recipes. I decided to try this out because I have seen popular bloggers mention it and curiosity got the best of me. The system sends my recipes and shopping list sent to me every Friday and the recipes are so easy to cook. Time has always been against me and this service definitely helps me.

Having a side hustle can change your life in a positive way. Depending on how you want to make some extra income, it can be hard at first but the benefits of it can help you pay off debt, build a savings, save towards a house, or even help you stop living paycheck to paycheck.

My lifelong goal is to stop living paycheck to paycheck and get out of the daily grind.

Have you seen my blog post, 6 Reasons Not to Move to Hawaii? Cost of living and traffic is what’s driving me to be successful.

Due to the high cost of living in Hawaii and now have a mortgage, I feel like I’m living in a never ending cycle of living paycheck to paycheck. What’s worse is that it makes it even harder to save which then makes me feel like I’m going nowhere with my listed goals.

In fact, because of that goal, I started this blog as one of my side hustles.

See the list below on how you can make some extra income:


Other Ways to Make Some Extra Income

Start a Blog: As I mentioned above, starting a blog is a great way to start as a side hustle. It will take time and patience if you’re starting out but it can definitely be a great supplement to your income. You can create your own blog here with my easy to follow tutorial. Your domain will cost less than $3 per month with BlueHost and it’s a huge saver in my opinion. Again, check my tutorial here and you’ll see my personal comparison.

Earn free gift cards through Swagbucks. When I first got started with Swagbucks, I was on it every day, 2 years has passed since then and although I’m not a daily user as when I first got started, I’m still pretty active with it. See my tips on how I get free gift cards. You can get great cash back offers using their coupon codes, or build your SB points by answering surveys or watching videos. I personally like to watch their videos.

Sell your stuff. I’ve met a lot of people online who sells their stuff online such as sites through Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, Ebay, Poshmark and letgo just to name a few. I haven’t tried this myself but I’m very tempted as I have a lot of stuff in great condition that I could sell.

Get a part time job. If your schedule allows it, a part time job is a great way to supplement your main income. You can look for jobs on sites like Craigslist, Monster, and Indeed.

Join an affiliate network. One way to monetize your blog is to promote products through an affiliate network, hence the term affiliate marketing. The products you see here on my blog are products that I personally use. The affiliate network that I teamed up with is called ShareASale. It’s free to join and there are many products that you could promote that would fit your niche.

I hope you enjoyed this list, again, feel free to come back here and then as more content gets added to the blog.
