There’s no denying that life can be expensive right now. The cost of living seems to continue to rise while wages and salaries just aren’t budging at all. I’m sure that you aren’t the only one out there who is looking to make a bit of extra cash wherever they can!
Wish you could make a bit more money? It could be possible, and you might even be able to do so in your spare time without making too much effort. Here are a few ideas for you!
Get Compensation Owed To You
First of all, it’s worth trying to get any money that people could owe you. If you have recently been in a pedestrian accident, you might want to find out more about making a claim for compensation. Bear in mind, you will only be able to do that if the accident wasn’t your fault. If you have recently lent any cash to friends or family members, it could be time to remind them that you need it back soon. If you are self-employed, it’s always necessary to keep contacting clients about any outstanding invoices. As you can see, there could be quite a few people out there who owe you money!
Consider A Side Hustle
How about trying out a side hustle? Lots of people have created a small second income for themselves by turning a hobby into a paying part-time job. For instance, if you are a keen photographer, you might want to try and sell your snaps on EyeEm. Similarly, you might want to start blogging. Once you have gained a significant number of followers, you will find that companies and brands start to approach you about sponsored posts and advertising opportunities.
Sell Your Junk
Are you struggling to keep on top of all the clutter in your home? There could be one easy solution for this – you just need to sell some of your junk! You might already be familiar with the saying that one man’s junk is another’s treasure, and you might be surprised to find that this is very much true. You can list your old and unwanted belongings on eBay and I’m sure they will be snapped up in no time at all.
Rent Out Your Spare Room
If you have a spare room that you don’t really use, you could always think about renting it out. After all, getting a flatmate will give you the chance to split your rent and utility bills so you won’t have such high expenses each month. If you don’t want to live with someone on a permanent basis, you could still rent it out on Airbnb. Then anyone who is in town for a few nights could pay to stay in it. This is a great idea if you live in a big city or region that is very popular with tourists and travelers.
So, which of these ideas sounds the most appealing to you? Let me know if you have any other great ideas to make some extra money!
