Summer is the season of doing fun activities with your friends, but these activities should not run your wallet dry. Here are some ways you can make fast and easy cash on your own over summer.

1) You can join Uber or Lyft. This option is a preferred option for people who are too busy to have a scheduled job. You are your own boss and can work whenever it fits your schedule.

According to, signing up takes about four minutes. And you must be able to pass the following requirements to drive for UberX:

· Four-door sedan that seats four people

· Year 2001 or newer

· In-state plates

· No marked, taxi or salvaged car

· Pass Uber vehicle inspection

· Car must be currently registered (doesn’t have to be under your name)

2) You can join if your schedule is a little more flexible and you enjoy watching after children. One of the benefit of joining is that people in need of childcare will put down the exact days and times they will need you so there are no surprises in the schedule. has also started incorporating other jobs such as housesitting, pet-sitting and even yard work. So if taking care of children isn’t your forte, you can do one of the other jobs.

Also, while some families need weekly childcare, some only need it one night. So if you aren’t busy on a Saturday night, log in to and there might be a job for you.

Don’t let summer break your bank, sign up for one of these jobs and you will be making fast cash in no time.
