I drove for Uber Eats for a few months when I was saving for an expense - my earnings were about $18/hour, too. It was pretty easy/straightforward work and you could get paid every day if you wanted. Work on a football Saturday? Make a couple hundred bucks in a few hours. Plus, it meant I could keep doing my contract work during the day and even have time to write on the side before the dinner peak hit.
