Feb 21

If you are looking to travel for a long period of time, it is essential to think about how you are going to finance your stay.

Need Money, Pronto? Ideas to Get the Cash Rolling in!

Feb 12

If you need money fast, you have a few options you can try. We all like to save money and live a little frugally from time to time, but sometimes we must do even more to raise the cash we need. Try the following techniques and see if the cash starts rolling in for you:

Use Online Selling Sites

Online selling sites like eBay can be a good idea if you’ve got a load of old junk lying around that you want to get rid of. Be vigilant and get rid of things that you don’t use, need, or want. You can then list it on online selling sites and see if other people are interested in buying it. It’s up to you what you start the bidding at, but the lower you set it the more interest you’ll get.

Attend Boot Sales

Boot sales can be a great way to spend a day on the weekend, and you can get cold hard cash in your hand right then and there. You can sell just about anything you have lying around. You won’t necessarily sell everything, but you could give it a good try by being open to offers and making multi buy deals. Just watch out for people who want something for nothing.

Do Odd Jobs for Money

You could offer to do odd jobs for a little extra cash. You could walk dogs, babysit, and even set up a page on Fiverr doing small ‘gigs’ for $5. You could literally offer your services as a voiceover artist or logo designer if you think you’re good enough.

Get Fast Funding

If you really don’t have time to try anything and can’t wait for the cash, you could get fast funding here. This is a good idea if you have an emergency payment to make that can’t wait.

Start a Business on the Side

Confident in your abilities to run a small business alongside what you usually do? Go ahead! This is more of a long term solution, so you need to be committed to your idea. You could do anything you like, from making jewellery, altering clothes, cleaning…you name it!

Recycle Clothes and Mobile Phones

Instead of selling old clothes and phones, you could do something good for the environment and recycle them. This is a great idea if you don’t think you’d get much for these items on a selling site or boot sale anyway. You’ll get a small amount of cash, and you can feel good about yourself.

Be an Extra

Want to be on the big screen but don’t fancy yourself as the lead just yet? You could apply to be an extra. It’s easier than you probably think, and you could get a decent wage for a few days work.

You have plenty of options when it comes to getting cash in your pocket fast. Don’t hesitate; try one of these methods today. Leave a comment to let me know how you did!
