There are probably people in your area who will pay you to clean, shop, or assemble their furniture. Or maybe you're willing to pay someone to take care of your odd jobs. Either way, TaskRabbit can help. It connects people who have chores with people who are willing to do them. After you sign up with the site, you'll be taken to a page to connect to your Facebook or LinkedIn account. TaskRabbit requires a social media presence as a way to help verify your identity. It also requires you to have an iPhone or an Android-based phone. If several people apply for your job, you can select someone yourself or let TaskRabbit pick for you. You won't pay until the task is finished, and then you'll pay securely through the site.
