Want to make extra money, but don’t know where to start? Here are a few ideas.
Offer your baking and cooking services for your busy neighbours. You can create a set menu for the week and get people to order in advance.
2. Take surveys
Finding the right survey is quite hard, as there are so many out there. However, there are trustworthy companies that need feedback or data and they are willing to pay you for your opinion.
3. Invest in shares
Anyone can do it and you don’t need to know the ins and outs of the stock market. All you have to do is invest in shares in a company, which starts off at 1% and depending on the popularity and success of the company your investment can start from as little as R20
4. Sell it!
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Look for things you don’t use or need any more around the house and sell it online.
Recycling your waste material is actually profitable and although it won’t make you instantly rich, it does pay well. Platforms like Collect-A-Can gives you R10 per kilogram for aluminum cans and steel cans fetch 60c per kilogram. Just Google ‘pay cash for recycling’ and watch all your options pop up.
6. Go green
Growing veggies is another great way to save you money. You’ll be able to feed the family, and maybe even sell a few home-grown tomatoes and spinach to the neighbours.
How many of us enjoy hemming a pants or putting on buttons? Put all those needlework lessons to good use and offer your services to your neighbours.
8. Stand in line
If you do find yourself with a little extra time, why not stand in queues for people. You can charge them per hour or a flat rate to stand at Home Affairs, Licensing department, even waiting for that SASSA grant.
