Many Americans have a side job to support their income.

According to a new report, 37 percent of Americans have a side job; that includes more than half of millennials.

The most popular side jobs include home repair, landscaping, online sales, crafts and childcare.

A majority of people say they do it for more disposable income, while 38 percent say it's necessary to meet their regular living expenses. The median side job earns about $200 a month.

Experts say having more than one source of income is a smart move, and having a side gig is a great way to boost your savings and meet other financial goals.
