Hi, I'm Janet Bodner, editor of Kiplinger Personal Finance Magazine. Now one way to put extra in your pocket is to get an extra job and it doesn’t even have to be work. You can do something fun or take advantage of your talents or hobbies to pocket as much as $30.00 an hour. You could for example operate a call center right from your kitchen table. You become an independent contractor to provide customer support for companies such as Office Depot, Sears or J. Crew.
You generally need to have your own computer, a designated phone line and a high speed internet connection and you can expect to get paid up to $14.00 an hour or you could write for the web. No, Kiplinger.com isn’t hiring but plenty of websites are looking for freelancers to write blogs, commentary and reviews especially if you know a lot about a particular subject or geographical region. Now, the going rate is $15.00 to $30.00 an hour.
And here is an idea for young adults who don’t get easily embarrassed. Join a street sales team to promote products, movies, and other events. That may involved dressing up in a funny costume but making up to $25.00 an hour is no laughing matter.
And finally, make money while you shop. As a mystery shopper, you can actually get paid to browse a store and offer feedback on a customer service and the quality of the merchandise.
