When you need extra cash, the instant thought will very rarely be to work more hours. Instead, the idea that comes to mind will often be to borrow money. This makes total sense. The majority of us already work hard enough and giving ourselves less free time than we already have is never an appealing option. However, more and more people are finding themselves with financial problems due to borrowing, and even borrowing just small amounts can see people facing major issues.
So, what other options are there? Well, there are plenty of ways for you to get a bit of extra money in without having to give up all your social life or risk getting into that dreaded spiral of debt, and in turn you can make those purchases you need without any negative impact.
One of the easiest ways to make a few extra quid is to sell your mobile. The majority of people end up hanging onto mobile phones due to apathy or simply overlooking how much an old mobile might be worth, and recycling mobile phones can often see you getting back nearly as much as you paid for it. In fact, recycling mobile phones is likely to get you far more money than if you sell your mobile online or to a second-hand shop, and you could walk away with a significant amount without losing anything that you actually need.
On the subject of selling, car boots are always beneficial. Like old phones, the amount of things we hang onto that we never use is extraordinary. Car boot sales are great for knickknacks, whilst online auction sites are great for the more valuable assets you may have lying around.
Finally, think about any assets you have and how they can be used. For example, renting out parking spaces you may not need can bring in a great amount of money, whilst even your house itself could be a source of income if you go about things in the right way.
