How to Make $1000 Fast in 2022

There are times when you need to think about bringing in some extra money, fast.  When you are in precarious financial straits – when your job or jobs aren’t covering your bills – there are ways to earn extra income.  The times we are living in have created some great opportunities for making money.  With many of them you don’t even have to leave home.  Here’s a look at some income supplements you can consider in 2022.

Rent out your car

You could be earning extra cash right now, by simply letting other people borrow your wheels.  The car sharing economy has arrived.  People are looking for alternatives to the traditional car rental agency.  One of the best in the Toronto area is RideAlike. If you have wheels parked for extended periods, get them out on the road, by listing with RideAlike.  All their member vehicles are fully covered by their insurance; you set the rate you want to receive for renting out your vehicle.  RideAlike does all the rest, and you make good money.

Become a dog walker or dog sitter

If you’re one of those folks who just loves dogs, there is money to be made.  Dog walkers earn up to $30 per hour; when you see one of them with more than one pooch on a leash, think about what they may be making per hour.  Put your love of canines out there; alternatively, you can become a dog sitter, in your place or the client’s.  Animal lovers can make money while playing with pets. Think about it.

Sell your stuff for cash

Chances are you have a stash of unused stuff you’ve accumulated over the years.  Maybe your place is over-crowded to begin with.  There is money to be made here.  Consider selling some of your unneeded  items for good money.  It could be books, magazines, collectibles, gold and jewellery you no longer care for, furnishings… the list goes on.  There could be thousands of dollars of stuff others are happy to pay for.  Get rid of it, and take the money.

Part-time work in child care

If you love kids, and you have the time, you could be earning money doing babysitting work.  Some weekends for instance could be turned into income earning time. Instead of sitting around home, do it with a little one; alternatively you could babysit in your client’s home.  Either way, you’re doing something you enjoy – looking after children – and getting paid for it. You can set the rate; parents are willing to pay for capable child care.

Part-time Gardener

You love the fresh air and the outdoors; you’re good with plants; you’re in good physical shape.  You probably have all the qualifications to be a great part-time gardener.  There is great money to be made looking after flower beds, vegetable gardens, mowing lawns, and trimming hedges.  If you have landscaping experience, you can command even more money.  Put up some posts online, and make some connections with homeowners needing gardening help. You’ll be making the extra money you’re seeking, while doing something you’re good at and enjoy doing.

Cut down your expenses

This is like earning money in reverse.  Think about what you are currently spending every month, every week, and every day.  Look for areas you could be reducing spending in, or cutting out altogether.  It could be coffee runs and fast food; memberships you don’t use; subscriptions you’ve long stopped paying attention to; less driving and more walking.  The list goes on and on.  Chances are you could be hanging onto money you’re currently unnecessarily spending – it’s like making money in reverse. Think about it.

Rent out a room in your house

The sharing economy has created all kinds of money making ideas.  Airbnb is among the biggest of them.  If you have a spare room or rooms in your house, consider short-term rentals as an income generator.  There is significant money to be made, and you don’t even have to leave your home to do it. Instead, you can be a host, and people will be more than glad to pay for the service.  Airbnb has proven how easy it is to earn income from short-stay room, apartment, and house rentals.

These are just a few of the ways you could be making fast money.  There are many others.  Get creative, and consider all the ways you could be earning that $1000 in a week.  Thanks for reading.
