SIDE bustles are a quick and easy way to earn some extra cash.
As more work is digitized and personalized, some side tasks can even be done from the comfort of your couch.
Here are some ways to earn some extra cash while enjoying your summer.
1. Pet sitting
Summer is usually the time when people in the country take a well-deserved vacation.
So if you’re an animal lover and planning to stay in your hometown for the next few months, this might be the perfect side hustle for you.
Many times pet owners will ask you to come to their house and feed or walk their pet.
Sometimes they will make you spend the night or even for the duration of their vacation.
This may mean stocking the fridge for you and maybe letting you use their amenities.
According to ZipRecruiter, pet sitters earn an average of $12 per hour.
2. Keep the house
House sitting is another great way to earn extra cash, get out of your house, and earn some easy cash.
Much like pet sitting, the people you’re sitting for can let you use their amenities like their pool or spa.
Typically, you can charge anywhere from $25 to $75 per day depending on the size of the home, according to Be The Budget.
Also, if they have pets or projects to do around the house, you may be able to charge a little extra.
3. Rent your car
This one is probably the easiest way to make money, especially if you work from home and don’t need your car.
Typically, those out of town are looking for rentals to see local attractions, attend parties or weddings and need a car for maybe just a day or night.
Supply chain shortages have made rental cars a little harder to come by, so renting your own could be a great way to help someone out and make some quick cash.
You can use the Turo site where the car owner can set their own prices and times.
On average, those who rent a car earn an extra $850 per month, according to the site.
4. Pool cleaning
Owning a swimming pool is good, but maintaining one is not.
Many people will hire a pool service to come out once a week to clean and check chemical levels.
It can be a great side hustle for those who enjoy being outdoors and working at their own pace.
Also, since most people only clean their pool once a week, if you have enough customers, you can create a regular workflow.
The average cost is around $50 to $100 per hour.

In addition, this owner earns $12,000 by renting out his house eight DAYS a year.
