Lots of people struggle during the summer months. Children are off school, there are more weddings to attend and the prices for holidays jump through the roof. Here are some quick ways to create some cash this summer without having to take on a part-time job (where you’d find one, I don’t know) or consider any thing too dodgy!
As you know I’m an eBay obsessive but not only do I buy things from eBay I sell things too. Take one day to declutter room by room then photograph anything that is in good enough condition to sell. Then plonk yourself down in front of the computer and write out some really good and informative descriptions. Most of the items which go unsold on auction sites are perfectly fine but no one will consider the seller as serious if the description isn’t useful and informative.
Why not research car share schemes? If you’ve got to get to work you can halve the price of petrol by having someone ride along with you. Ask if your work place have any information but also check out sites such as liftshare.co.uk and national carshare.
Yep gold is big business. If you have an ugly ring from an ex or a necklace which just doesn’t suit you why not consider researching ways to sell gold. Let’s face it, I’d rather pay for a really good day out to a theme park than have an ugly ring sitting in my jewellery box doing nothing other than collect dust.
So many of us have meat with every main meal but is it really necessary? We here at Thrifty Towers aim to have meat only 3 nights a week and the rest of the time eat a vegetarian menu. We feel better for it and have noticed our grocery bills have dropped significantly.
Do you have any ideas for saving money quickly?
P.S. Feel free to share the quick ways you recoup cash.
