Delivering newspapers is a very good way to gain a little extra amount of money and in many cities you are considered to be an independent contractor. Oftentimes, there are more than one route available and relying on the amount of newspapers to be delivered, one can always pick up or drop as many routes he can comfortably handle. Just be prepared to work seven days a week if you opt to deliver bigger papers. Some of the independent newspapers only send once or twice a week so if you are thinking of such business you better start calling some offices to know what will fit your schedule.
Read the classified ads of newspapers and try to find if there are openings as delivery driver. Some of these companies are willing to pay to use your van to deliver packages for them that are too huge to be placed at the back of the car. Looking for a company that is willing to cover the cost of your fuel would be great and some pay per mileage too.
Search on your local job board or even at the bulletin board located in a Laundromat or store for some people might be looking for someone who can do their weekly shopping for them perhaps because they are elderly or disabled and really can make use of your help. Just think if you have couple of these clients in a week or in a few days. It could really be something that would turn out to have a nice pay for you.
