I think we have all at one point had to tighten our belts and watch our pennies, unless you are Alan Sugar that is! And especially when you have a family, every penny makes a difference. I have made a little list (I love a good list) of easy ways to hopefully help you make a bit of extra cash and some can be done from the comfort of your sofa!
25 Ways To Make Some Extra Money
2 Selling handmade crafts – If you have a skill such as crocheting, knitting, painting then perhaps you could sell your work. Check out these business ideas on our weekly Mums That Mean Business feature.
3 Use cashback sites such as Topcashback or Quidco
4 Sell unused items on Ebay or Facebook market place.
5 Join Swagbucks and watch videos, take surveys to collect points which can then be redeemed for gift cards.
6 Start a blog – This is not by no means a quick way to make money. It takes a lot of time and effort but the rewards are fab.
7 Dog Walking
8 Pet Sitter
9 House sitting
11 People per hour – Are you good at writing? Or perhaps you are a good illustrator? Then advertise your work here.
12 Sell your services on bidvine. Whether you are a photographer, plumber, electrician, simply register and wait for requests to come in.
13 Mobile phone repairs – If like my husband, you are a bit of a dab hand at replacing iphone screens, then why not charge for your services?
14 Gardening services
15 Mystery shopping
16 Car boots
17 Sell your photos – Are you a keen photographer? Then companies like istockphoto want your photos!
18 Virtual Assistant
19 Write an ebook
20 Birthday planner
21 Baking cakes – Ideal to sell at local farmers markets, or cater for birthdays and other events.
23 Delivery person
24 Matched betting – I was unsure whether or not to include this, but reading into this and actually having a go, this can be a nice little earner. But PLEASE do your research first before jumping straight into it. There are lots of forums to help you learn more, here is a helpful site The Money Shed.
25 Cash for old gold – Do you have any old gold, or odd earrings stuck at the bottom of your jewellery box? Then why not cash them in?
I hope this has been helpful, happy money making!
