Top Side Hustles To Make You Some Extra Cash In 2022

2020 and 2021 were hard for a lot of people, especially if they had been furloughed. If this was the case for you then you would have spent a lot of time at home or working from home. You may have missed going out and enjoying your hobbies. Why not turn your hobbies into side hustles this year and make some money doing the things you enjoy.


Blogging can be a great way to make money if you know what you are doing. It can be tough to make it with your blog as you have to capture your audience’s attention. It is possible to make money from blogging but you have to be in contact with the right people and companies. People can use your blog to send you products and then you write reviews on the products received. 

You can also accept guest posts on your blog site with links to different products and services. Each time someone clicks on one of those links, the owner and yourself get a small commission. 


If you have a niche that you enjoy doing then turn it into a side hustle and get paid to do the things you love. Take writing, for example, you could write articles for websites or blog sites making some money on the side. You can even do this if you have a full-time job as you make your own hours and choose your own pay. You could also do this through a company, although you will still be responsible for your own taxes. It just means that you will always have work available to complete. 

You could also join the freelancing sites online, there are plenty to choose from. You set your interests and what hours you can work. Then individuals or companies can contact you asking you to help them out with work. 

Selling Online

You might have a lot of things at your home that you are thinking about selling. Some things might have incredible value to them. Rare Beanie Babies are one such item that is worth mentioning. You never know if the ones you have are the most sought-after ones. If you have some at home take a look online and see if they are worth anything. 

Another great way of making money from the comfort of your own home is to sell personalized items that you have made. A lot of people have recently wanted to buy personalized scrabble frames. These have names of loved ones and family members, all made out of plastic or wooden scrabble tiles. 


If you have a love for children and helping them learn, grow, and develop why not think about becoming a tutor. Generally, you need some sort of teaching degree or childcare education for this. If you have these then take a look online and advertise your services using childcare websites or job boards. 

Especially during the pandemic a lot of school children have fallen behind so their parents are after tutors to catch them up. There was a high demand for good quality teaching professionals during the lockdowns so now is a great time to get into tutoring. 

You could also do some babysitting or childminding as a side hustle, again a love of children is a huge bonus when working in this field. You can make some good money for very little work. 

Painting & Decorating

This is something that may not be of much use due to lockdowns and people being reluctant to let others in their homes. However, if you follow the restriction guidelines then you and everyone around you should be safe. You can advertise your painting and decorating services on local job sites and on the surrounding area’s community boards. This is a great way to share your passion and help people out with whatever they need doing around the house. Even if it is just helping the local old lady with her flat-pack furniture, it is better than nothing at all. Once again, you can do this on the side of your normal job and set your own hours and fees. 

We hope you enjoyed this article and it gives you some ideas on how to make a bit of extra cash on the side. Remember that side hustles are classed as being self-employed and if you are earning over the tax threshold then you will need to file your own tax and insurance. The last thing you want is to get any nasty letters through the door.
