Best part-time jobs to make extra money

Are you looking to earn some extra money this year?

Well, you no longer have to fill out applications and hope someone hires you.

Millions of people have joined the gig economy in recent years, working a side hustle for extra cash.

It's a great way to earn from a few hundred dollars to thousands.

So we found some of the best for 2020.

Vicky Zwissler has driven for Uber and Lyft for more than 5 years and told us in a recent report …

"I love it," she said. “I absolutely love it."

The most popular gig jobs these days involve driving, because of almost no startup up fees.

Vicky says ride sharing is a great gig if you enjoy meeting new people.

Not a people person? Then consider a food delivery service like Door Dash, or Uber Eats.

Uber Eats driver Louis recently took us along on a delivery.

He dropped off a lunchtime pizza, and ended up with $10 for just a few minutes work.

Matthew Wimsatt meantime is a "dasher," a Door Dash driver, and loves the freedom and flexibility.

“You are going to earn a little extra money, and not have to answer to the man, a boss," he said.

If you enjoy shopping, Instacart and Shipt combine grocery shopping with delivery, which can mean a bigger payout than just driving food.

But let's say you don't want to spend all your time driving.

In that case, you can work on homes, make videos or walk dogs for money.

If you are a dog person, consider pet sitting, through services like Rover.

Angela Davidson earns about $40 a night watching dogs for families on vacation.

"It's perfect for an owner who wants somebody that can both pet sit and house sit,” Davidson said. “It also gives peace of mind that their house is being cared for the same time their pets are."

If you enjoy minor home repairs, loan out your talents through apps like Thumbtack, Task Rabbit, Handy and Homee.

Jeremy Kurth and Mary Baller love being able to easily find a handyman on their phone.

"That was the nice thing about the app. They were able to get someone there literally that day,"

But the side hustle that can pay the most is renting out your home when you are away, through Airbnb or VRBO.

And one more bonus gig job this spring: a U.S. Census worker, where pay starts around $12 an hour.
