You don't like to think about it, but between the up-front cost and the monthly contract payments, your phone costs you a fair bit of money. What you might not realize is that it can make you money, too.

Now you won’t get rich but you can pay for a few trips to Starbucks. Here’s how to get started.

1. Sell your photos

I've talked in the past about making money with microstock photography, but it involves taking pictures, moving them to a computer, cleaning them up and then finding a good site to upload them to and promoting them. It would be nice if you could trim down the process.

Foap is an app (Android, Apple; Free) that does just that. Simply take pictures with your smartphone's camera and your favorite photo app, and then add them to Foap.

Just about any kind of image can sell if a company thinks it will work for them. That means that cute pet picture, vacation photos, even photos of food if you have those.

There are no limits on how many photos you can upload, and for every sale you get $5. If you want to make more, Foap offers photo missions where big brands pay hundreds or thousands to get a specific photos.
