Looking to make a little bit of extra money over the next few months, but not sure where to start? We know that recently everything has been getting a little tighter with the cost of living crisis, so here are a few ideas of additional income streams you can explore.
Sign Up As A Food Delivery Driver
This is a great way to gain additional income. Many people choose to order food when with friends and family. By signing up as a delivery driver you can work the hours you desire around your schedule and get paid a very reasonable price for it too! You can check out companies such as Just Eat, Dominos and Deliveroo, whether you have a car, motorbike or even cycle. You can find some more information about Uber Eats Here.
Sell For Free On Facebook/Ebay
Everyone’s got some things at home they no longer need, so why not make a bit of extra cash from these items this New Year You can list old furniture, clothes and much more on Facebook Marketplace without any sellers fees, or explore other second hand sites such as Depop, Ebay and Gumtree.
Get quick cash for old CDs, games & more– list websites to check this out on
Following on from our last suggestion, check out some of these websites, where you can scan the barcode of old CDs and DVDs to see if they’re worth anything. You never know you might find some that are worth a surprising amount!
Look for flexible retail jobs
Nowadays no matter the industry you’re looking to work in, there is often a flexible job that’ll be the right fit for you!

Do some freelance work- ie social media or a bit of graphic design
Becoming a freelancer is a great way to earn additional money around your current employment. Whether it’s running a local company’s social media for them for a monthly fee or offering to help do DIY for local people at a reasonable hourly price. Everyone has a skill and you can monetize that this Christmas.
Take in an exchange student
Our final suggestion is to look at opening your home to an exchange student in the new year. This is a great way to rent a room out for extra income and is very rewarding too. Get in touch with your local language school for more information on the vetting process and steps to move forward.
