This is a collaborative post.

With all the rising costs we are facing at the moment and with more looming we are all looking at ways to save some money. One of the most helpful things we can do is to increase the amount of money coming into the bank. There are quite a lot of ways to do this, some of which you might not have known about. Here we look at our top 7 ways to earn additional income.

  1. Surveys

There are a lot of sites who pay a small amount for completion of a survey. These surveys do not pay a lot, but they also don’t take up a lot of time, therefore, the more you can do the quicker the money will build up.

2. Fruit picking

Taking it back to the 1950’s there are still farms who look for people to fruit pick during the summer months. It’s a great seasonal job.

3. Borrowing

There are companies such as cashasap.co.uk who offer payday loans and short term loans which have no hidden costs. A pay day loan from cashasap.co.uk would bridge the income gap between salary payments into your account. This can be particularly useful if you experience an unexpected bill.

4. Selling sites

A well-known way to make money is by selling your unwanted goods. You can do it via well-known online forums or car boot sales.

5. Get crafty

There is a big demand for local handmade goods. If you can tap into your creative side, there is money to be made in creating things such as bunting or greeting cards.

6. Rent out your spare space

If you have a spare room, why not consider renting it out to increase the amount of money coming in. You could rent it out on a long-term basis or using Airbnb so that you have a more flexible approach to when you want to let the space out. If you have a secure garage or shed, there is also a market for renting that out.

7. Resurrect your school carpentry skills

There is a huge demand for home crafted wood pieces. If you are skilled enough why not create mud kitchens to sell out of old pallets or create bags of kindling to sell. Or for something slightly more refined you could make personalised chopping boards or shelves.
