Money unfortunately does not grow on trees, and whilst the search for that elusive tree will no doubt go on, we are forced to make money in more conservative ways, i.e. actually going to work and earning it. Boring? Well, in some cases, but a necessity all the same if we want to actually pay our bills at the end of the month.
Sometimes however, our monthly wage covers our bills and outgoings, and we’re not really left with much to play around with in terms of fun. All work and no play is certainly no blueprint for a fun-filled life. With that in mind, it’s no wonder more and more people are looking at slightly more unique ways to boost cash flow in the fun money pot.
If this sounds like your predicament but you’re not too sure where to start, here’s a few ideas on how you can make some playtime cash. It’s worth bearing in mind however that none of these ideas should really be used to find cash for bill paying, and if you’re struggling with that side of things then that’s an entirely different ballgame.
If you understand odds and betting then a weekend flutter on a big horse race could yield a few cash boosting opportunities! If you don’t understand odds too well, ask someone who does, because getting it right dramatically increases your chances.
Enjoy a few games at home
Sitting in the comfort of your own home playing games, totally relaxed and enjoying what you’re doing is certainly one of the best ways to make a little cash. Don’t think this scenario is possible? Well, it is! Vegas William Hill games offers a variety of different colourful and fun-filled games to pass the time, with the chance to win a little extra cash at the end of it.
It could be you!
Do you play the lottery? If you don’t and you’re one of those people who says ‘one day when I win the lottery’, then how are you going to make your dreams come true? You certainly do have to be in it to win it, so put your numbers on at the weekend and keep your fingers crossed. Alternatively, when you head to the newsagents to buy your newspaper, why not buy a scratch card and see if you can double, triple, or even quadruple your card money?
Have a big clear out
eBay is a godsend when it comes to clearing out rubbish and making a little cash for your trash. What you may consider to be junk could be another person’s idea of treasure, so don’t discount anything here! Start your bidding price low to increase interest, and wait until your listing finishes. Bear in mind however, eBay does have the tendency to be a little addictive!
Could your opinion earn you cash?
If you’re sat watching TV half-heartedly, grab your laptop and register with some questionnaire and survey sites. You’re not going to earn a fortune, granted, but over time your opinion could earn you a little sum of cash.
These few ways to boost your fun pot of money could certainly mean you’re entitled a guilt-free night out or two at the end of the month.
