Hello, everyone. Side hustling is a way of life. There are many stories out there that discuss side hustles for single people. If you are in a relationship, you still side hustle. As a matter of fact, there are some side hustles that you can do as a couple that may generate you more money than if you did them by yourself. Today, I want to share five of them.
Kids Birthday Parties
The first side hustle is starting a children’s birthday party business. This can be an excellent side hustle for someone who works a 9-5 job. Most parents have their kid’s birthday parties on the weekend. That is good for couples. They could advertise services for specifically for Saturday & Sunday’s.
Years ago, I had a friend whose parents did birthday parties on the weekend. One person would dress as a clown and make balloons for the kids. The other person would do face painting. They also had a small bounce house that they would use at times. It was a good way for them to make extra money. It was something that thy enjoyed doing.
Renting Your Home
The next side hustle that couples do is rent their home. There are sites such as Airbnb and Homeaway that the couples can use. One person can be in charge of the listing. They can take pictures and take the time to post the listing on several rental websites. The other person can clean the home and show the renters around once the house is booked.
Renting your home can be big business depending on where you live. Popular cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami are always busy with tourist. If you do not want to rent out your home to someone, you can rent out a spare room or even a couch.
The third side hustle for couples on the list is photography. This side hustle can be very lucrative these days. People need photos taken for various reasons. As a couple, you can delegate the tasks. One person can be the stylist and makeup person for the photo shoot. The other person can be the photography. They will take all the shots and make sure that the lighting and the backdrop are right.

If you are good at cooking, then this next side hustle is for you. People enjoy cakes very much. They may not always know where to get the best ones at for a good price. If you or your significant other can bake pretty well, you may be able to solve that problem. One of you can be the baker, and the other person can deliver that finished cakes to the customers. You could be the perfect team and generate a lot of extra money doing this hustle.
Selling Items on Craigslist
The final side hustle idea is selling items on Craigslist. This works well for couples in a few ways. They can find items to sell together. Some places that you can look are thrift stores, yard sales, and surprisingly Craigslist free section. After you find the items you want to sell, it is time to get them ready. One person can be in charge of making sure the things are clean, and they can take the pictures of them. The other partner can create the craigslist ads.
