It can be really handy at times to have a bit of extra money. There could be all sorts of reasons why you might want a bit more and most people will not turn down an opportunity to have some more unless it is really difficult. There are some things that you can do which are great fun and can be an opportunity to make a bit of extra money at the same time.
These are fun websites that give you the opportunity to win some money, which is usually paid by Paypal. All you will need to do is to register with them and visit the site daily. This may either be to check if you have won or to grab a ticket for a weekly draw. Each works slightly differently but they are all funded by advertising. This means that you will not need to pay to take part and therefore it is like the normal lottery but free. The prizes will be smaller as they are a proportion of the advertising revenue collected by the website. This means that you will not win a fortune, but it can still be a fun way to try to get some extra money.
If you like answering surveys, then why not get paid for them? There are a lot of websites where you can get paid for answering questions and these will be on a variety of different topics. The hourly rate is very low and you may need to give away details about yourself such as the area you live, you age, income and things like this, so you will need to decide if this is something that you are willing to do. For anyone that likes giving their opinions on things and giving information about themselves then it can be a good way to do this and get paid for doing so.
A lot of us own things that we no longer use and could potentially sell. Of course, once we sell things, we will not be able to make money from them again so this is not a way to earn an income but it could help you to raise a lump sum of money. It could be possible to sell all sorts of things this way, even perhaps things that you do not think will be useful such as cables, boxes and things like that. It is a good idea to get searching online to see what sorts of things people will buy as you could be surprised and you may find that you are sitting on quite a bit of money. The best place to sell tends to be eBay, although they will take a fee, as will Paypal when you get paid. You will also have to post the item out and so you will have to check that you charge enough for postage. There are specialist sites you can sell certain things on as well, which might be easier to do. You may also consider selling on local Facebook groups which are free to sell on but you may find it harder to sell things.
Rent Out Items
Renting out a room is something that you may have already considered, but you could also rent out storage space or even your driveway. You will need to check with your insurer and your landlord or mortgage lender to make sure that you can do this but it is likely that you will be able to and this should help you to be able to make some money pretty easily. It is good to look into it first, to make sure that you are happy with making the commitment though.
