Earning Extra Income in Retirement

October 26th, 2018 The Loved Ones Desk Uncategorized

You work your entire life so that you can spend retirement how you want it. But with rising costs of living, if you haven’t saved enough throughout the years, you may not be able to comfortably live off social security and Medicare alone. Sometimes, even if you can, you just want a little extra income in retirement.

Lucky for you, there are plenty of things you can do to earn that income.


How many children and grandchildren — even great-grandchildren — have you cared for in your lifetime? All that experience would make you a pretty good babysitter for other people’s children. You can choose to be a day-time sitter during the week for working parents or just babysit a few hours on the weekend for parents who need a night off.


If you’d prefer to look after some furry friends, offer your services as a pet-sitter to nearby friends and neighbors. A lot of people are willing to pay a pretty penny for safe, reliable pet care, so, if you know someone nearby is going on a trip, ask if they need a pet-sitter and earn yourself a little extra cash.

Sell Stuff Online

In a digital age, it is easy to have, essentially, an online yard sale. Go around your home and gather clothing, trinkets, sports equipment, and the like that you no longer need, use, or want and sell the items for a profit.


If you were particularly good at your job pre-retirement, why not office your services in a free-lance consulting fashion? You can name your price and choose the number of clients you’d like to take on, that way you can earn some extra income at your leisure.

When it comes to keeping your senior relatives happy and healthy, you can trust the professional caregivers at Loved Ones. With our “never alone” promise, you can rest assured that your loved ones will receive the best care possible.
