Workers know that there’s no easy way to earn a dollar in these uncertain times. Most get-rich-quick schemes are too good to be true, and the only way to earn a stable income is to find a full-time job. However, if you’re truly in need of cash right away, there are legitimate ways that you can earn money in the next hour.
The Penny Hoarder has compiled a list of methods wherein a person can possibly earn money within the next 60 minutes, and most of these tips have been followed to great results by students, stay-at-home parents, and anyone who needs cash right away.
Here are some tips on how to earn money in the next hour.
Do a quick job for your family or neighbors
Does a family member or a neighbor need their garage organized, or their car cleaned within the next hour? Then this is the perfect opportunity for you to earn a quick $20 or more, depending on the kind of job.
Sell your blood or plasma
If you’re healthy, then you can make a quick $50 by selling your blood or plasma at for-profit blood centers. However, you can’t do this too often, as you need at least 56 days between each blood donation.
Hunt for cash and loose change inside your home
You may be surprised at how much money you can find if you thoroughly search your house. Look through bags, drawers, pants pockets and the like for loose change and bills.
Sign up with Agent Anything
If you’re a university student, you can earn money by being a worker for Agent Anything. Jobs can be anything from temp office work for small businesses, errand running for working mothers, and more.
Sell your old mobile phone
Companies like Gazelle pay in cash for your old mobile phone. They also remove all personal information from the devices that they receive, so you don’t have to worry that your data will end up in the wrong hands.
Sell your hair
If you’ve got very long hair and don’t mind parting with it, go to BuyandSellHair.com and sell it. You can make anywhere between $150 to $1,000 on your hair, depending on the length and condition. Hair that has never been dyed, straightened, curled, or gone through any other chemical treatments called “virgin hair” are preferred.
Sell your breast milk
If you’re a new mom, you can help those who are unable to nurse their babies by selling your breast milk. You can go on sites such as Only The Breast, wherein an ounce of breast milk is priced at $1.
