#2: Sell your class notes.
There are several ways to go about this. You can upload your notes online to sites like Notesale or you may want to pursue options through your school. Note-taking work-study jobs are often available, and they pay you for the time you’re already taking notes in class. Now, put those notes to work!

Certain companies will pay you to test and review services or shops. It’s part-time, and you can work the hours that are best for you. You often not only get paid for your time, but you also score free stuff! Beware of online schemes, though. Be sure to do research before signing up for a program. Here is some more helpful information to start you off as a mystery shopper.
