These days, getting any additional money is greatly appreciated. What’s so difficult these days is that we’re so swamped with life duties, we may not have the opportunity to get a full-time job. Being a parent is one of those things that require a very liberal approach to the idea of organisation. After all, we could plan everything down to the letter, but an ill child can throw those plans out of the water. Likewise, if you’re expecting an addition to the family, you’re going to be rendered unable to do things, and quite possibly head to more doctors’ appointments than you’d want! So when the topic of earning money begins to rear its head, you’ve got to find ways to earn a little bit here and there, and when you have free time. How can we do this?
Selling Your Stuff
Not that we like to part with our worldly possessions, but this is a gentle reminder you that you’ve no doubt got a lot of junk taking up space. Selling your stuff is easy enough, and all you’ve got to do is head to the post office and send it off! If you are looking for a cash windfall, but life has been so hectic, selling a few items on eBay is quick and relatively painless. There’s a fine art to selling old junk for a big profit, but it can be done.
Working Online (Whenever Time Allows)
There are many different opportunities to earn money online. A lot of parents can take advantage of doing online surveys, getting paid for searching the web, product testing, as well as getting paid for searching the web. The great thing with these jobs is that you can pick them up and put them down as you need. In order to earn a decent amount of money, you’ve got to do it a lot over a long period of time, but when we are looking for a few spare pennies here and there, if you’ve got 5 minutes free, you can complete a survey without any issue!
The Investment Approach
And as our children can take up a lot of our time, we’ve got to find some lucrative ways to earn money, and investment can be the best way. It can be a long process before you see any profit, but if you’re looking for something to bubble underneath your life, stocks and shares are some of the best methods. The big issue with stocks is that you have to have a decent sum of money to invest in at the beginning before you can see any payout. But if you’ve got such a busy life that you physically don’t have time to work, this can be a quick and simple practice. You could do it on your phone with the numerous mobile apps out there, and while stocks and shares can be quite intimidating, it’s handy to have this skill in your back pocket.
If we don’t have the time to earn a decent wage and go do a job, these three methods can be a lifesaver. You have to remember that it’s not a way to earn a lot of money, but if you’re looking for a little bit to tide you over, it’s worth starting here.
