Best Side Hustles to Make Money During the Summer

Making some extra cash during your free time is a no brainer. When the summer months come around, there are various ways to earn more money. 

Whether you have an upcoming vacation planned or just need some extra money to cover your mortgage or rent payment, give these side hustles a try!


Make Money Flipping Furniture


Flipping furniture is a relatively simple way to make extra money. The process is quite easy to understand. You’ll need to purchase distressed furniture, refurbish it, and sell it for a profit. 


To source your distressed pieces, it’s best to check out local garage sales or thrift stores. You can usually pick up a few pieces for less than $100.


Refurbishing your pieces is typically where most people get caught up. You can browse websites like Pinterest for inspiration and purchase most of the supplies you need online or at a local craft store.


When it comes to selling your furniture, there are many different routes. You can opt to sell your pieces through local classifieds like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace or sell them online through your own website or eBay.


To make money flipping furniture, you’ll need to keep your costs low. Between the cost of your distressed pieces, supplies, and the time it takes to refurbish them, it’s best to limit these costs as much as possible.


Start a Car Detailing Business


In the summer months, washing cars becomes a great gig to make extra money. You’ll need some basic supplies to get started that you can purchase online or at a local retailer. 


You can start by asking your friends and family if they need your services and create a Facebook page for your business. Those looking to expand their business can create flyers or brochures to increase their exposure. 


You can typically charge anywhere from $25 to over $100 for your services depending on the detail you supply.


To detail a car, you’ll need to:


● Clean the interior of the vehicle
● Vacuum floors, seats, and other areas
● Clean windows
● Clean and condition seats 
● Wash the exterior of vehicles
● Wax the exterior of vehicle
● Clean and shine wheels and tires


Use a 3D Printer to Make Money


Not everyone has a 3D printer, but they can often be a great investment. For less than $500, your printer can provide a lifetime of returns. 


There are many different ways you can make money with your printer with the most common being printing physical items and selling them. 


There are a few main types of printers available to purchase, so you’ll need to analyze the complexity of the items you want to print before making a decision. 


You can sell your items online through Amazon, eBay, Etsy, or your own online store to make a profit with your 3D printer.




There are many different methods to make money in your free time with some being more efficient than others. Blogging can be a great source of income and help reduce stress and become a form of therapy.


Between flipping furniture, car detailing, or using a 3D printer, making money is easier than you might think. While you might not make $40,000 a year starting out, side hustles can be a great method to supplement your income.


So what’re you waiting for? Get started today!
