Good people of Columbia, ever wish you had more spending money lining your pockets? If the Sushi + beer fund has been looking a little low, we’ve got four leads for a side hustle that you can implement now.

And for those of you already bringing home the bacon —  if you need extra storage space, a place to park your car, or help with your summer lawn, this conversation is for you, too. 

💸 Turn that empty garage, attic, or shed into moola

  • A parking spot near Main Street is practically worth gold. Become a storage host on Neighbor to rent out anything from closets to parking spots + driveways to sheds. Listing your space is free + you’ll give another Soda Citizen the storage space they’ve been needing (if that’s you, surf the local listings here). 

💸 Convert your hobbies into services for hire 

  • Picture this: You’re leading a yoga class on the State House grounds or snapping graduations photos at one of our riverfronts, and you’re getting paid. Land local gigs by advertising your services for free on Thumbtack. You can list pro skills like dog training, notarizing, and assembling furniture — basically, the sky’s the limit. And for those looking for hired hands, browse local pros for jobs like house cleaning or interior painting.

💸 Get into the Airbnb game
