I am forever looking for ways to make extra money online. With both girls I decided to take the extra 3 months unpaid maternity leave. 3 years ago we struggled so I wasn’t sure this would be an option this time but I’ve found a few ways to make a bit of extra money!
Sell unwanted items
This is not only great for earning a bit of extra money but helps declutter your home at the same time. I am a bit of a hoarder so every now and then I have a big clear out and list any unwanted items on local Facebook sites or eBay! If selling larger items be sure to check the price of courier. TNT and some other couriers allow you to get a quote online! Car boot sales are also a great way to make some extra money although not online.
I like to do these whenever I get a spare minute which I know is tough with children at home. But I am quite opinionated so love to have my say whilst getting something in return. I use MSE to find the best sites to use.
If you have certain skills or experience. Sell it! There are websites that advertise jobs that need doing and you could be just the person. Although I am not freelance as such, I have registered as self-employed so that I can make extra money!
We all know that with children it is sometimes easier to shop online. Using cashback sites such as TopCashBack means you can make extra money whilst doing what you need to do!
Although not guaranteed to win it is something fun to do! Or you could enter yourself to appear on game shows.
I feel a bit of a hypocrite writing this because I am just too scared to take the leap. But Katy Kicker has an easy to read guide on how to get started! I know of people making lots of money through this and its completely risk free.
