Part-time work

Extra employment If you need a bit of extra money, why not see if you can do with a few extra hours in another job? You might be able to take a shift or two working in a bar, or maybe even offer to tutor at a reasonable price. Online work The key here is to find something that interests you and apply that to making you money. A lot of companies now outsource work online, so you can write, do graphic design, enter data and much more to earn cash from home. Sites such as Freelancer and Clickworker offer small jobs so that you can earn money.

Make your own business

What are you good at? If you can market yourself properly, there is no doubt that you can make a little extra money by starting a 'business'. Say you are good at drawing - you could maybe ask to do art work for local club's leaflets or posters. Or if you are good at English, you could offer to copy edit various materials for local businesses for a small fee. Many options There really are so many options out there for those who are willing to make a few extra pounds. You might need a bit of determination and some patience, but getting cash for your car or saving for a house really isn't too much of a stretch away. Research Do some research before you start anything, plan what exactly you are prepared to do, including how much time you can actually allocate to any additional activities, then implement your plan. Use word of mouth and tell your friends and family that you are 'going into business' and their support would be welcome - anything to help you get a reputation behind you. You will soon be able to treat them to something really nice with all that spare cash.
