    I have about 10-20 hours/wk to spare that I think I should put toward a part-time job. A side gig, side hustle, whatever you wanna call it. Could use some advice.

    What are some ideas that make pretty decent money? Preferably want to be able to work from home but willing to consider whatever really. Thought about trying to sell stuff online or on odd end jobs on Upwork or Craigslist. But really leaning toward a more steady type job, where I get a regular paycheck, just working part time.

    Thoughts? Only thing I can think of is delivery driver/courier, Uber/Lyft, or working at a supermarket, gas station or fast food place. Maybe Amazon warehouse? Don't need to make a lot but at least several dollars above minimum wage, ideally $15-20/hr.

    Thinking about a temp agency maybe. I have done that before, where you fill out a survey and take a few tests and they match you to a database of employers looking for workers. Only annoying thing is they get a cut of your pay. Would rather avoid that.

    Anyways, whatever you got lemme know. Appreciate it in advance.

    I know someone who used to do HR for an Amazon warehouse. It's an absolute madhouse there according to her. If it's your only option and not your side gig, then I'd say go for it. But if this is your side hustle, I don't think it'd be worth the mental and physical strain of working there.

    Another idea would be, (especially if you have little extra cash to invest) have you ever considered drop shipping? Buy some wholesale stuff, pack it at your house, and send it out as the orders come. Just a thought.

    I remember drop shipping used to be a thing back about 10 years ago. There were companies that used to get people setup with drop shipping. Which is kind of redundant and a little sketchy, in my opinion. I'm sure some companies that do that are legit, but I could see it going sideways fast, and you end up owing them money instead.
