A Few Ideas To Top Up Your Income
We have all been there, we have our hearts set on a holiday somewhere sunny and or that new sports car everyone else seems to be driving. You can picture yourself now, sunbathing or driving, happy and carefree. The only thing between you and your holiday/ car is your bank balance.
If you don’t try, you’ll never get
When you are faced with a bank balance that makes you feel like crying, especially if pay day isn’t for weeks, it’s so easy to give up and resign yourself to eating nothing but beans on toast. Whilst there are plenty of scams out there which you should watch out for, there are still plenty of legal ways to gets some extra money fairly quickly.
Get rid of old, broken, useless, or unwanted things
Let’s face it; most homes are full of junk no one needs/ wants. Usually these items are hidden in a draw or box somewhere that rarely ever gets opened. You would probably be surprised what items people are actually willing to pay money for.
These are just a few things people are willing to buy/ trade but with websites like EBay and the recent trend for recycling old/ broken/ unwanted stuff you’ll probably find your home to be full of earning potential-
- Mobile Phones
- Ink Cartridges
Search the internet, fill in surveys, or complete various tasks
There are lots of websites out there which are offering money in exchange for things you probably already do for free. If you have strong opinions about current affairs, spend hours searching the internet, or love watching videos then you could do all these and more whilst getting paid for them.
Most of these websites offer low pay for tasks or only offer points in exchange for vouchers. It can, however, be a fun way to spend some free time.
Mystery Shopping, Website Testing, Freelancing, Writing Reviews
These are slightly more time consuming ways of earning money, you will also need to double check as your earnings may count as taxable income. However, by regularly reviewing songs or testing websites you can top up your current income. Mystery shopping has the added bonus of being paid to shop or eat at a restaurant.
