There can often be a bit of time in between searching for a job and being offered one. If you need money quick then that can be a stressful situation, however there are other ways you can make money in the meantime.
Here are five ideas that you can try out.
Become a Mystery shopper
Mystery shopping could be a good way to make money. You will be paid to review restaurants, customer service in shops and hotels. This is a fun and easy way to earn some cash and is great for fitting around family life. For a full list of pros and cons and for information on the best companies to use, take a look at this web post I put together.
Rent out things you don’t use
It’s not only spare rooms that can be rented out. Do you have a spare car parking space that you don’t use? Well somebody somewhere will probably pay money to use it. Especially if you live close to a city center. Read my guide on renting out your car parking space.
There may not be huge amounts of money to be made in taking surveys, however, they can be good for a quick fix or even for earning vouchers which always come in handy. There are a lot of scams out there which claim to give you huge amounts of money for completing online surveys. If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is. Crowdology and MySrvey are both good sites to use.
Make money from unwanted Christmas gifts

And there’s more ways to do that than just shotting them all on eBay. Take a look at my guide for making money from unwanted Christmas presents.
