Rent your extra bedroom to a housemate
You may think only college students, single people, or people without children have roommates, but that isn’t true. More and more people are seeking creative living situations that benefit both parties.
If you have an extra bedroom or suite in your house, maybe because you’re an empty nester, why not consider renting that space? With careful consideration, you could end up with a housemate that fits in with your lifestyle and helps share household chores.
The key to success is to wear two hats at the same time, roommate and landlord. You’ll want to screen potential renters carefully, check in to their renting and credit history and verify their income. You’ll also want to make sure their personality and lifestyle mesh well with yours.
After careful vetting, you could enhance your life and your bank account with a roommate.

Consider renting out your spare bedroom as an AirBnB based on your desired schedule. As a host, you decided when to make your space available and when to block it off for your own use.
This is an easy and convenient way to bring in some extra income.
Provide storage space
