How to make some extra Cash

I'm sure a lot of us out there at times are looking for some extra money and it's really hard to come up with some ideas as to how to make some extra cash, so if you are a teenager, college student or just an adult looking to get a little extra, I've got your back, here are a few tips...

1. Online Surveys 

Online surveys are a great way to get some extra money, and what better way then to do it from the comfort of your own home! All you have to do is create an account with them, and start taking surveys. You can get paid for cash or for vouchers in your favorite stores. How does it work? Well, after having signed up, you are asked about your name, email address and gender in order for the company to understand what kind of member you are. Once signed up, they will keep you updated via email with new surveys for you to participate in. 

There motto is that our time is valuable, and that's why they pay us users to finish. After finishing each survey you are gifted points that we can later redeem as cash or gift cards. You can find out more on their website here (Don't worry this website is completely legitimate, I have used this before when I was a college student).

2. Sell Your Skill

Do you have a skill that you could sell? for example, are you good with graphics, art, coding, writing etc? You could advertise your services to others for a fee of your choice and do what you love in your spare time and gain some money out of it. 

Here is a Link on the Do's and Don'ts of being a Freelance Artist. It can help you make a decision on weather it's something you'd like to venture into. 

The only website that I am aware of that does this sort of thing is People per Hour, but I'm sure there are others... If you check out their page it has all the information you need in order to become a freelancer. 

3. Closet Clear out

This one is basically what it says in the title. All you have to do, is take a look through your closet and see if there is anything you no longer need/use, I'm sure you have at least 3 items you can get rid of. It's not just limited to your closet you can look through your house and see what's no longer in use and sell them. 

There are many websites you can do this on, Ebay; Amazon and Depop. Personally I use Depop as a form of buying and selling, you might ask what is Depop? It's a mobile, social shopping app, it's where you can set up your own Depop shop and browse the feed to find your favorite bloggers and other users. For more information, just click on the word Depop above to find out more.

4. Selling a Product 

Create a tee and sell it in the Tee-spring community (Information is on there website). A cute fun way to start a business.

5. Blogging

If you are a blogger like me you can use Adsense -

By sharing ads on your blog, you can earn some money.

Purse Carvela - Kurt Geiger: Debenhams or House of Fraser

I hope that you found at least one new way of making some extra cash.
See you soon!
