Have you got any plans for the weekend? Fancy earning yourself a bit of extra money? If so, there are so many different options available to you that can really give your bank account the boost that it needs.
In fact, it’s completely realistic to expect to earn £100 from your efforts. Here are some of the methods that you might want to consider…
List your unwanted clutter on selling sites
Think about all those things sitting around your home that you no longer have any use for. You might have toys that your children have long since abandoned, or clothes that they have outgrown. Maybe you’ve bought outfits over the years that no longer suit you, or just don’t fit. And of course, most of us have a drawer full of electrical that we haven’t even touched in years!
You’ll probably be surprised by the amount of cash that you could be sitting on. Dedicate a few hours to having a really thorough declutter, and list any unwanted items on selling sites like eBay, Gumtree, or Facebook Marketplace. Make sure that you take some great pictures to really paint your items in a great light. This will help you to maximise your profits. Of course though, you need to be honest about the condition of the things that you’re selling. If they’ve been used, say so!
Sell your skills as a freelancer
You probably have skills that you have acquired in your day job that you can sell on a freelance basis. Sites like People Per Hour will connect you with small business owners who want to hire contractors on an hourly basis. This can be a great way to make some extra money in your spare time.
You’ll have to create a profile that really showcases what you do, and it makes sense to include a small portfolio of your work, so potential clients can see what you’re really capable of.
Rent out a room on AirBnB
AirBnB has completely disrupted the travel industry, and it has also given homeowners a great way to make some extra cash. There may be people in your area this weekend who are looking for a place to stay, and whether you live in the city or the countryside, you could make your spare room available.
This may seem a little daunting at first, but the site has a great reputation and most people have really great experiences. You don’t have to live in a mansion, and you can decide to rent out your room whenever it’s most convenient for you.
Always remember that when it comes to your finances, you can put yourself in the driving seat. By being proactive and taking action, you can use these tips right here to earn £100 this coming weekend. It could be the financial boost that you’ve been looking for, and it could turn into a very profitable hobby!
