Summer is here and there is so much to see and do. Unfortunately, your pockets and piggy bank are empty and money is tight. What to do?
The reality is that many of us have untapped sources of money that are just lying around in our own homes, ignored and unloved and currently not being utilised. Whether you are paying off bills, or trying to raise some money for a holiday or a treat, there are things you can do that can help fill that financial hole in your life.
- Sell Jewellery Online
Most of us have gold jewellery lying in jewellery boxes that we never even look at, never mind wear. This may because it is not really our style, it doesn’t suit us or even because it is broken. Yet how many of us attempt to sell jewellery online? The rise in the value of gold and silver has seen a huge rise in the popularity of sites that buy your jewellery, even broken stuff, and you can get an awful lot of cash for gold.
If you have jewellery that you know you will never wear, this is a safe and easy way to make a bit of spare cash.
Those PPI Letters
It may seem unbelievable, but there are many people who have still not claimed back their PPI. However, time is now running out, with regulators now setting a deadline of August 2019 as the date all PPI claims must be made by.
If you are yet to do it, or are still unsure if you were sold PPI, you can download a form online, or seek a no win no fee claim through a professional company. What you shouldn’t do is do nothing, and time is now running out.
Sort that Wardrobe
Many of us wear just a fraction of the clothes we have in our wardrobes, with so many things hanging there with the tags still attached. If this is you then maybe your wardrobe could be made to pay its way.
Have a major decluttering session and sort all the things you don’t, and will never, wear. Then you need to sort again, putting the good quality and new stuff to one side. The rest you can sell on a car boot sale, especially popular during this fabulous warm summer we are experiencing. It is worth getting a rail to display your clothes properly, this will enable you to charge a little more for them.
The good clothes can then be put on eBay, where you should be able to make a little more for them. eBay is still one of the best places to sell used items and make a premium price, and if you look for free listings days, you can avoid any pre payments too.
How do you make a little extra cash when times are tough?
