One of the biggest tips when talking about how to bring in more money is to pick up a side hustle. Unfortunately, a lot of times, those side hustles require you to spend some money to start the side hustle. But not everyone is in a position to spend money to start a side hustle. So here are five quick side hustles that don’t require money.

Dog Walking

Now that many people who worked from home during the height of the pandemic are returning to their offices, their pets are home alone and many dogs are in need of mid-day walks. If you have the time during the day and enjoy dog walking, this might be a great side hustle for you. You can advertise your services locally or you can sign up with a service like, which will help match you to dogs in need of walks. And even if you don’t have time during the week, there are plenty of dogs who need walks over the weekend. I have friends who walk for on occasion just because they enjoy spending time with dogs and it’s a great way to get outside.

Pet Sitting

Following on with dog walking, another way to make money is to offer your services as a pet sitter. I have spent a lot of money over the years paying a pet sitter to stop in on my cats while I was out of town. I don’t regret a single penny spent, and I’m lucky to have found a pet sitter that I trusted and could rely on. It was an easy job for her and I was always reassured that she was taking good care of my cats and keeping an eye on my home.

Become a Virtual Assistant

A lot of people hire virtual assistants to monitor their email and social media. For this, you will need to have a computer or some other equipment to access the internet, but assuming you already have that technology, this is an inexpensive side hustle to pick up and there are many companies out there where you can sign up.

Donate Plasma

While you can donate plasma altruistically, did you know you can also be paid to donate plasma? And unlike with blood donation, you can donate up to twice a week through some companies. Many of these companies pay $50 or more per donation. It does take a bit of time, but it can be another in the list of quick side hustles that don’t require money if you have the time and your health permits.

Audio Transcription

A lot of companies outsource their transcription work because it can be quite time consuming. There are a number of companies online where you can freelance and transcribe various audio recordings into text. Again, you will need a computer, and you may want to ultimately upgrade to a good pair of headphones and other equipment, but you can certainly get started without any additional money.
