Making money doesn’t have to always involve getting a job, and sometimes you can even make money without working at all. Here are ten ways to make some extra money without working. Some ways are totally easy and truly don’t involve much effort on your part, some involve initial effort , money, or equipment to get it going.
1 Make extra money without working using your lawn mower. Find a local teen, and ask him or her if they want to make a few extra bucks every week. Then offer them a deal. They use your mower to mow lawns around the neighborhood, and you each get half the money. You pay for the gas. Make sure you find a teen you trust, they’ll be the one collecting the money. Make sure they know how to use your mower properly as well.
2 Donate blood or plasma. If you don’t mind needles, this is easy. You can make several hundred dollars of extra money every month without working at all. Bring a good book or some other form of entertainment, it can take a while, and you might get bored.
3 Rent out a room in your home to a tenant. Along the same lines, you can rent out a room for storage, and charge less than they’d have to pay at a mini storage, or rent space on your property for vehicles or equipment that people don’t have room for on their own property.
4 If you have plenty of land with good soil, you can rent out space for garden plots.
5 Invest. Investing your money right is one of the best ways to truly make money without working. There are all types of ways to invest money, some riskier than others, so do your research.
6 Real estate. Buy properties, either commercial, residential, industrial or land, and hire someone to rent it out and manage it for you. No work involved if you can locate a good manager.
7 Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money without working. If you want to make good money doing it, sure it takes a lot of work. But if you just want to make some extra money, you can just put affiliate links in your forum and email signatures and on your blog, Facebook account etc.
8 Put up a Paypal donate button on your blog. Cyberbegging is common these days. It only takes a few seconds to set one up, so why not. If people appreciate your writing, or picture of your artwork you post, then they can show their love with a couple bucks if they want.
9 residual income from writing. Write content on your blog, website, or content sites that pay residual income through Adsense or other forms of advertising. Once you have enough content up, you can enjoy the residuals for months, or even years.
