Money is something that seems to make the world go round. Everyone is always looking to make an extra dollar where they can because having money is a luxury. The common saying is that “money doesn’t buy happiness”, but it is able to solve a lot of problems. When a lot of your problems are taken care of, then you may find that you feel happier because you are less stressed. These tips will help you make some extra money for your family this summer, to take care of some of those problems.


Pursuing the investment route is a great way to make some passive income. Passive income is money that is made without having to do any work. This can be accomplished by simply investing in a company and the stock price of the company increasing. You can also invest in a stock that pays dividends. Dividends are payments that companies make to their stockholders with the excess cash that they have from their business operations. This is not something that can get you rich quick, and it takes a lot of research to invest in the stock market properly. When done properly, your stock market portfolio can lead to larger returns than keeping your money in a savings account. However, it is important to note that you are at risk of losing money as well. If you invest in a company, and their stock price goes down, then you will lose money on that investment.


There is one other avenue for investing other than investing directly in companies. That avenue is investing in cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency is an online currency that is intended to be universally accepted. Currently, a lot of people wonder how to get rich off crypto. While the concept of cryptocurrency may seem foreign, you can get rich off crypto the same way you get rich off stocks. Through proper research, you can gain information that can show which cryptocurrencies have potential for growth. There are specific platforms to buy cryptocurrencies, just as there are to buy stocks. Cryptocurrencies are much more likely to get you rich quick, but they are just as likely to lose you money.

Garage Sale

A garage sale is a great way to make some extra money for your family this summer. A garage sale is a great way for you to sell all the things that you no longer use. Spare clothes, extra toys and old appliances are all great things to include in your garage sale.

A garage sale is a fair amount of work to put together and execute, but it is rewarding. Depending on what you sell at your garage sale, you could bring in a couple thousand dollars from things that you do not use. Research how to run a successful garage sale for your family.

Deliver Groceries/Food

The pandemic has made food, and grocery delivery services extremely popular. This is because there are plenty of people that do not want to go out and buy their own groceries or pick up their own food. It is also a great way to work because it is rather easy. You just simply pick up food, or shop for someone’s groceries, and then drive it to their house. If you like to drive and have a fuel-efficient car, then you may want to look into this type of work. The two most common grocery delivery platforms are Shipt and Instacart. Both have a variety of stores that you will be shopping from and make shopping for groceries incredibly easy. The most popular food delivery platforms are DoorDash, Postmates, UberEats and GrubHub.

All these platforms require that you have a smartphone. This is because each company has an app that will notify you of available orders, where the order is being picked up at and the location of the customer’s residence. This is a great way to make some extra cash this summer, and it is an easy job.


All of these can be done over the course of the summer, but you should pick one and put all your efforts towards it. These three ways are easy ways to make money for your family this summer, but they do require that you are diligent in your efforts.
