Ways to earn money fast?
I'm going to Portugal in June and I'm trying to get as much spending money as possible. I have R8000 (approx. €830) at the moment but I want to have R10 000 (approx. €1040). I'm currently a maths tutor and I sell my jewellery but business isn't that good at the moment.
I've tried applying for jobs, most places won't hire people under 18 (I'm turning 18 in September) and I've applied at most places near me. What other ways can I earn money fast?
Do you have anything you can sell? Maybe a bake sale or yard sale? I know this doesn't sound very girly but maybe you could mow lawns.
People don't do yard sales here at all. Plus I live in a security estate so not many people would be able to buy stuff. I've been trying to sell other things online though: old cds, toys, clothes, etc. No response on any of them though.
you might have to wait till your 18, getting a job is the only way to get money.
babysitting or dog walking maybe. or perhaps yard work
Michelle, I'm going to Portugal before I turn 18.. I need the money before then.
And Lacey, I wanted to do that but I saw that there are already 3 other people in my estate that walk dogs and 2 that babysit. And I can't do yard work because everyone has gardeners here.
Hmm in here, you've got "mystery shoppers", it's like, you apply for them, and when they need you to go somewhere, they call you and tell you where you have to go, for example a supermarket. When you're in the supermarket you have to see if the people who work there are friendly, if they have enough products, if it's clean, if they don't sell for example alcohol to people who aren't supposed to get it. When you've been there, you have to answer some questions, write a report and send it to the persons who called you.
You might not get called alot, it really depends on where you live. In here, they pay 15 to 50 euros per time you went to a shop or restaurant or so. I don't know if you guys have the same kind of thing in there, but you could try looking for it at least? (:
It won't be a real job, but you can get a nice amount of money this way.
Good luck :3
Mystery shopping is a really good idea. Shopping is even better when you get paid to do it :0)
I've never heard of anything like that here. I'll check it out though. It'll be easy for me because I live across the street from one of the biggest malls in the area.
I would re-consider the babysitting option. It can be a easy, enjoyable way to get cash fast. I usually let the parents decide what payment they think is suitable (usually $8 or $9 an hour) and for a good long gig I can get $30 - $50.
I'm in the same boat as you right now, underage and in need of dough. I'm trying to raise money for a trip to Europe and it's slow going. Selling donuts and baked goods at church, selling jewelry and crafty whatnot, etc. *sigh*
I think you still might be job age for that, any one need extra help with housework? or pick up extra students to turtor?
Lol, we have maids here as well, so housework is out of the question. And I can't get more students to tutor, they call me. My flier is up by the estate's gym and post office, and I have sent an email to everyone in the estate.
Is there anyone you know with a business? A relative/friend? You could ask them if they need help?
We're short for cash at moment and my Father in Law does tree work, did a couple of days with him this week for cash in hand. I know how hard it is when you need money, hope you find something soon! x
