You can also rent out your space more long-term to students or young professionals, which can work out in both your favor.

Have you ever seen those crazy people who go through trash bins on the side of the road? Are they really crazy or just plain smart? Recycling depots will pay great cash for your paper, plastic, cans, and anything else that can be recycled. If you have a free afternoon and a car, try it out. Bang on your neighbors' doors and see what they're willing to part with. It's not only great for your wallet, but it's beneficial for the environment, too.

8. Pamper a Pooch

Pet owners will pay top dollar for you to take care of their little ones. Offer your services as a dog walker and earn up to $15 per walk. If you can walk up to 7 pooches per day, you're on your way to a $100/day income.

Thanks Samantha!! I gave a shot at NAUPA and turns out Experian owned me $23. Now I do remember reading their mail about this years ago and discarded it back then.

Samantha on November 02, 2016:

Wow! Try the first one. After I read the comment above about a girl finding a paycheck her old job at mcdonalds owed her. I looked. Turns out I have a $74.00 paycheck I never claimed from Walmart. I worked there ten years ago! Just check. You never know! Took me a second. I had to enter my name and city. That was it.

KN on September 21, 2016:

Wow, I actually decided to look at the missing money website and didn't expect anything - but thought it would be fun...and instead I found a paycheck I hadn't picked up from a job at McDonalds gosh like...10 years ago LOL. I'd quit my job and immediately moved out of state, without an address to give them, so it must have been my last paycheck. Sent in a request to claim the money. I never would have even thought to look. Probably only a few hundred bucks but anything helps in this day and age lol.
