Looking to make some extra money, but don’t want to leave your home to do it?

With an ever-growing number of ways to make money online, you don’t need to. 

Here are nine side hustles you can do from the comfort of your own home.

1. Transcribing

If you’re a good listener and can type quickly, you could make some decent extra money as a transcriptionist.

Transcription jobs usually pay between $15 and $25 an hour, according to The Penny Hoarder.

You can look for transcribing jobs on sites including TranscribeMe, Rev, Tigerfish, Quicktate, and Transcribe Anywhere.

2. Being a virtual assistant

This could range from managing someone’s schedule, to doing research and miscellaneous paperwork, to booking hotel accommodations and flights.

In some cases, The Penny Hoarder noted that you can make up to $60 an hour

For online marketing gigs, try searching on CloudPeeps. You can also look on freelancer platforms including Upwork and Elance.

Another option is to reach out to business owners directly through email and social media and offer your services, The Penny Hoarder noted.

3. Selling your unused stuff

These days, there are endless ways to sell your old stuff online — and it can make you some serious cash.

For clothing and accessories, there’s the smartphone app Poshmark. The website Decluttr will buy your old cell phones, books, CDs, and more. You also might have some luck on Facebook’s Marketplace, where people posted 18 million items for sale in the US in May 2017, according to Forbes. 

Once you run out of your own stuff to sell, you can scour thrift stores and secondhand shops to find things to sell. 

For example, one woman made $1,200 in two months selling thrifted clothing on Poshmark.
