We may all well be feeling the pinch at the moment, especially parents trying to cope with keeping children entertained over the summer holidays. So here are a few handy hints to either save money or even earn money this summer.
Cashback sites are a fantastic way to earn money, especially if you were going to shop online in the first instance. Topcashback offers money back on purchases from lots of well known online retailers. Over time the money does add up – perfect to save up for the Christmas rush. The site even details of discount codes which can help you save even more money.
Discount codes are in abundance on the internet and with companies offering deals such as 10% off your first order or free delivery, it can be cheaper to shop online than actually going into an actual bricks and mortar store. Also, if you are considering a lovely, family day out then scouring the internet for discounts such as 2-for-1 entry will save you more money than just turning up at the destination on the day.
Selling your own items online is a great way to make money. With websites such as Ebay and Gumtree it is very easy to make money from selling unwanted items. As well as making more room in your house. With companies such as Rapid Parcel, it is very easy to get a good deal on courier and postage costs, which in turn makes your items look more attractive to potential buyers.
Sell unwanted DVDs and CDs online to make some extra cash and make space in your collection for new films and music. Netflix and the like are becoming increasingly popular due to the ease of use – films and tv shows literally stream through your games console directly onto your tv – meaning you do not have to store DVD’s that you may never watch again. For a low monthly fee you can watch as much or as little as you like, even Breaking Bad marathons are possible!
Car boot sales are a great source of income, help you declutter your house and can be great fun to take part in as you get to socialise. Haggling is part and parcel of car booting but be prepared to wake up very early in order to secure your space.
These are just a few examples of how you can save money and even earn money. It would be lovely to hear of any other ideas you may have!
