Do any of you guys have a good solution to make some extra money? Trying to get a job above 10 dollars in my city is hard if you're a student. That being said, I do have a job I work at for 20 hours a week in retail.

I do babysitting here and there but living in an LDS city usually means they want an LDS babysitter.

Do you guys make some side money off anything cool? Or have some suggestions? I'm not a big spender. I spend maybe 50 bucks every 2-3 weeks.

Walk dogs, cut grass, raise kid's or manchildren's Pogeymanz. Reserve space and sell stuff like telling fortunes. Panhandling too if you're shameless.

I do freelance graphic design / illustration on a site called UpWork, which I highly recommend if you're looking for a way to leverage your art talents.

There are literally a million jobs put up there every day (everything from animation to logo design); and once you've got a profile set up on the site, you can start sending in proposals for whatever ones take your fancy. Unlike other sites which seem almost totally focussed on 'you have to put in the best bid, 'cause that's all that matters', the jobs I've got have all come down to clients hiring me based on my portfolio rather than my hourly rate / proposed fee.

The site owners, obviously (and fair enough), take a cut from every job you do, but the more earnings you make over time, the smaller the amount they deduct - I've only been on the site for maybe four months, but (also due to the US / NZ dollars exchange rate, which means I end up with more money when it gets to my bank account) I've made nearly a grand already.... So there we go.

When I was a student I applied to a catering/retail agency that offered shifts on an ad hoc basis and that worked amazingly for me because I could work weekends, and not work at all when I had deadlines coming up. If you can find an agency that offers similar flexibility, you should think about applying!

(Depending on how income tax works in your country, you may get taxed astronomically on your second job, so I'd bear that in mind)

Maybe you can volunteer to clean driveways or walks during the winter (if it snows there) or rake leaves, pull weeds and do stuff like that mainly for the elderly. They really appreciate it and you're doing a kind thing for them.
