Job hunting is a very frustrating task. With labor participation at an all-time low in the US, it can be difficult to make ends meet when you are looking for your next job. However, there are things that you can do to keep yourself afloat financially while you are in between jobs.

Sell Your Belongings

Many of us like to hold onto things even if we no longer need them. A simple way to make money quickly is to sell things that you no longer need. You can have a yard sale or list them online. Selling items that you do not need will not only help you make money, but it will also help you free up space in your home.

Lawn Care and Landscaping

According to Lawncare in Salt Lake City, many people do not like to spend a lot of time caring for their yard. It is a time-consuming task, which is why some people choose to hire someone else to do it. You can earn some extra money by cutting grass and trimming bushes.

Rent Out a Room

If you have an unused room in your home, then you may want to rent it out. Either go looking for a semi-permanent roommate or consider AirBnB. This is an easy way to bring in some extra income. However, you should thoroughly screen your potential tenant. You should also make sure that you provide your tenant with a written lease.

Sell Plasma

Plasma has saved countless lives. That is why centers pay people to donate plasma. If you are healthy, then you can make money by selling plasma. You can donate plasma up to twice a week. You will have to complete a questionnaire and undergo a physical examination every time that you donate. Keep in mind that donating plasma can be a time-consuming process. However, many people are able to make over $300 per month by donating plasma.


Babysitting is not just a job for teenagers. In fact, most people would prefer to have an adult watch their kids. There is a growing demand for babysitters because many parents today are working long hours. You will likely have to undergo a background check before you are allowed to babysit. You may also need a CPR and first aid certification.

The lack of money is one of the many things that makes it difficult to live without a job. However, you do not have to wait until you get your next paycheck in order to start making money. Babysitting, donating plasma, doing yard work, selling your items and renting out a room are some ways that you can bring in extra money.
