Today we are going to look at how to make 200 dollars in one day!
When I became a stay at home mom, I wanted to find ways to make extra money from home, and tried a bunch of different things out.
I found some things that worked great for me, and that I still do – that I can share with you all as well. Plus some bonus ones!
Let’s dive right in.
Sell Your Stuff
One of the best places to start is with selling your own stuff that you have lying around the home.
Have a look for items that are worth quite a bit of money, so that you can reach your $200 goal quickly. Look in your attic or garage and see if there is anything in there that you no longer use or need.
Put them up for sale on sites such as Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace, as there are no fees, and you can get someone to come and pick it up. You could even have a yard sale!
You’re not going to make $200 in your first day blogging – it’s more of a slow burner.
You can definitely learn how to make $200 a day in the future, once you’ve put in the work. We love blogging so much, and the opportunities that it gives us!
There are a few steps to take to set up a successful blog:
1. Choose your niche
2. Choose your web hosting
3. Selecting your blog name
4. Start building your blog
We had our first 5-figure month on our blog last month. Yes, come see how we made $22,000 on our blog in one month!

This one kind of ties in with blogging above – you could find writing jobs for other blogs and websites.
With the large amount of websites out there that have a constant need for content, there is a lot of opportunity out there for you to find writing work.
Some sites that you can find writing work on include:
You could also hang out in Facebook groups in your niche and keep an eye out for anyone looking for a writer.
There are also sites out there that pay for articles that you submit – if they like it! A good one to start with are Listverse, who pay for articles in list format. They pay $100 per article!
I currently do Freelance work and make $750 a month, working just a few hours a week from home.

Save Money on Online Shopping with Paribus
Have you ever purchased something, only to see it go on sale a few weeks after and kick yourself for not waiting until then?
Not to worry – there is a company called Paribus which can get you money back on price drops without you having to do a thing.
You just need to sign up and sync your email account so that it can scan through your emails with orders on and search for any purchases which have lowered in price.
If they find one, they will negotiate with the company on your behalf to get the difference in money paid back to you.
Get Cash back on Purchases
All that you need to do is download the apps, then go on and select the items that you will be buying.
After you have purchased those items, you will need to upload a receipt to the app and get cash back on them.
This won’t be one for how to make $200 fast, but it will get you a decent amount of money over time depending on how much you spend.

Rent Out a Room on Airbnb
Do you have a spare room in your house? If so, this could be a perfect way for you to make money – $200 a day could be easily done!
The great thing about renting on Airbnb is that you can pick and choose the dates that you have someone there – so it can fit around your life easily.

If you fit the criteria that they want for tutoring online, this can be an incredibly lucrative way for you to make extra money. Hello, $200 days! Seriously though, if you really want to know how to make $200 in one day, this is an excellent one to try out.
You’re going to want to sign up to these sites:

You can sign up to sites such as Rover.com and get bookings straight away.

Got an eye for detail? Notice the mistakes without even trying, on menus and in any text? Proofreading could be the thing for you.
It’s similar to freelance writing in that there is high demand for it. It can be easy to find proofreading jobs if you are a good proofreader – and there’s the bonus that you can do this from home at any time of the day.
If you want to learn more, check out Caitlyn Pyle’s course Proofread Anywhere.
With all of the business owners out there (there’s got to be millions?!), there is a great need for help support.
They can’t do everything by themselves – and they may not want to – and will look to outsource some of their work.
You could offer services such as editing, sending emails, replying to emails, booking appointments, social media scheduling, creating graphics…there are so many things that you could offer.
A great place to look for VA work would be in relevant groups on Facebook. Be helpful in the groups and let people know that you are available to hire.
You could also sign up for a great course by Gina Horkey called 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success.
When you are looking to make $200 in one day quickly, you may want to take a look at the sites that can offer you odd jobs for quick money.
You could easily make $200 a day on these, depending on how quick you are at snapping up the jobs!
Sites that are good for this kind of thing are ones like Task Rabbit. There are tons of jobs on there such as cleaning, handyman work, being a personal assistant and more.
We’ve covered selling your own stuff for money, but have you heard about reselling?
Reselling is essentially where you pick up items for a low price, and then sell on for a higher price – and the difference is where you make your money.
Making $200 in one day is definitely achievable with this method!
It’s obviously not as easy as it sounds, as you are going to have to do some research into what sells well, and then photograph it and list it, but you can make a lot of money from doing this.
Good places to start looking to find items to resell are places like yard sales and thrift stores, where the prices are pretty low already.
If you want to know more and find out some tips and tricks – check out the Flea Market Flipper course – they make over $100,000 per year flipping items!
We already covered being a VA (virtual assistant), but have you thought about being a Pinterest VA?
The reason that it’s a great idea to offer your services as a Pinterest VA, is that there is a high demand for it from business owners – especially bloggers.
It’s an area that they can get a lot of traffic from, and an area that takes up a lot of time. Pinterest is something that a lot of business owners are happy to outsource.
You’ll need to be able to create decent graphics and understand how Pinterest works, along with other tools such as Tailwind.
– I’m currently a Pinterest VA. It brings in a nice chunk of change and can be done from anywhere I have wifi. It’s definitely not a bad way to spend my evening.
Rent Your Car
If you don’t use your car very often, this can be a great way of earning extra income.
There are sites that you can advertise your car on such as Turo and Getaround.
These companies screen every applicant to make sure they are ok to rent your car, and they also ensure the car for you on each trip.
Sell Scrap Metal
We covered reselling, and this is a similar concept – only using scrap metal to make money.
It’s good for getting you out in the fresh air as well, as you will have to go on a bit of a scavenger hunt looking for any scrap metal that is around.
Look at curbsides, have a look on Craigslist under the free section, check out Facebook groups to see if anyone is asking for someone to take some scrap metal away.
Do a Google search to find local scrap dealers, or you could use the iScrap App to find places near you.
The amount that you earn will depend on how much you charge and how long you are doing this in the day, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t make $200 in one day!
If you already have experience as a babysitter or a childcare worker this will be a massive benefit, but you can still find work without it.
You will be screened, as will the other party, so you both know that it’s all legit.
Recent SitterCity data says that the average pay for babysitters in 2019 is $17.50 per hour. If you are in a big city, this will typically mean that you can command a higher rate.
Be sure to set your rates at an amount that is fair for all – and you may want to think about charging an additional fee per extra child.
Create an Online Course
There are so many ways that you can make money on the internet, and creating online courses is one of the more popular ones at the moment.
The reason why creating an online course is such a great idea is because although you have to put the work in upfront to create the course, after that it’s pretty much passive income.
Do you have any skills that other people would pay to learn more about?
This is where a lot of us slip up, as we tend to think that no-one would want to learn from us (imposter syndrome!), but there are plenty of things that you can do that you could teach other people.
Have a look at sites that sell courses such as Udemy or Teachable and see what other people are selling. You will be surprised at the wide range of courses on there!
You could do either video or text (or both) courses depending on what you are teaching.
This may not have been one that you were expecting to see on this list, but we are big fans of the more traditional method of finding an extra job.
You may not think that there are any out there in your town – but you just need to look. A lot of jobs aren’t advertised straight away, so by being proactive, you can get in there!
Another great tip is to ask in local Facebook groups if there are any part-time jobs going. I’ve seen people post this before and been flooded with responses!

I was just chatting with someone about how photography is an extremely lucrative side hustle – people will pay good money for photographs!
If you find that you are good at photography – or willing to learn – you could put yourself out there as a photographer and choose a profitable niche.
Wedding photography always gets the big bucks, and if you choose something really niche then you could become really popular very quickly.
You could also upload your photos to stock photography sites for passive income, such as on Depositphotos.
Etsy is a great site for selling on, as it’s really popular and you can sell your own unique items on there.
This could be as passive or non-passive as you’d like, depending on what you want to sell on there.
If you are going to sell bespoke items on there, these might need to be created when you get an order.
There are other things that you could sell on there such as printables, which would mean that you need to create them, and can leave them to sell on there.
Get your products out there and give Etsy a try, you won’t regret it!
There you have it! 20+ ways to make 200 dollars in one day! If you give any of these ideas a try, let us know how it goes.
