The Internet is increasing as a popular marketplace to sell and purchase goods for a convenient way of shopping. Find products at a lower price at garage sales or through suppliers and resell them on eBay.com or Craigslist.com.

2. Become a Freelance Writer

Allow your writing skills to be put to good use by working as a freelance writer and creating your own schedule. From managing online blogs for companies to signing up for websites that need content, it makes for a great way to expand your income during your free time.

3. Go Back to School

If you want to increase your education and have the opportunity to grow in your company or get promoted, opt for going back to school. The investment may be a sacrifice for a year or two, but can mean earning your marketing MBA online or taking more journalism courses at a local community college for a higher income long-term.

4. Become a Photographer

If you enjoy taking photos at family functions or events, you can supplement your income by working as a photographer in your local area. Offer your services to recent grads, families, and those with newborns for a hobby that can pay well.

5. Work as a Tutor

If you're skilled in a particular subject, work as a tutor and earn up to $100 an hour for your services. You can teach online or in person to students who need help with assignments or with studying.

6. Become a Pet Sitter

If you enjoy spending time with animals, consider becoming a pet sitter for residents in your community who are planning on leaving town throughout the year.

7. Rent Out a Room

For an easy way to earn more money without doing much work, you can rent out a room or a guest house on your property.

When wanting to expand your income, you can do so by using the skills that you already have and by getting creative with the services you can offer. By valuing what you have to offer, you can find a number of opportunities to earn money in your community.
