Although our jobs take up most our time, there’re still enjoyable ways to earn money on the side. Pick up a hobby or hone a craft skill, and you’ll be surprised with what you can earn in the bargain.

Hobbies are a great place to start, since it’s something you normally enjoy. The only thing you need to add to the mix is a bit of dedication, and time management. It’s best to do these once a month so that it doesn’t just become another routine job.

#1 Take photographs.

Got a decent camera? Stop with the selfies, and start photographing things around you. Many sites like ShutterStock and Unsplash pay a stipend for photo submissions.

Many companies like to run surprise audits on their employees. Do your research, and you could visit a restaurant or go shopping, and earn while you’re at it. What you eat/buy are part of the deal, of course.

#5  Build a YouTube tutorial channel.

Got a skill? Set up a YouTube channel, and spread your knowledge. Once your channel gains popularity like these awesome YouTube channels, you can earn money from ads on your videos.

#6 Sell your old gadgets.

We change our gadgets and home decor items almost on a yearly basis. But few know there’s a market out there for second-hand items. Get on OLX or Quickr and start selling. This is also a great way to clear the clutter from your home.
