We’ve all found ourselves longer for a bit of extra income at some time or another. When times are tough, we dream of finding a suitcase full of cash or discovering an old antique in our attic that’s worth a fortune! Fortunately there are quick solutions to make money now – with the internet being the answer to much of our money making needs. Read on for the quickest ways to make spare a few spare quid now:

Cash for… Everything!

Forget the antique in the attic, there’s a good chance you have plenty of sellable items around your house. Almost everything can be sold second-hand on auction sites like eBay or classified listings like Gumtree – both of which are very easy to use. Then there’s the ‘cash for’ sites which will pay you for your disused items without the need for sales listings and bargaining. You can sell clothes, DVDs, computers and old phones by signing up, sending in your items for assessment and waiting for payment!

One off projects

The web has made it really easy to help others remotely from the comfort of your sofa and with sites like PeoplePerHour and you can browse one-off job listings and apply to complete the project at the rate of your choice. The sort of briefs that you can expect to see include: writing and design tasks, web development jobs and remote data collection.

Make money from your everyday spending

If you shop a lot online, you really should be making the most out of cash back services like Quidco. Sign up and you can receive cash back on many of the purchases you are already making! There’s no catch and you don’t need to do anything new. Cash back sites simply track your computer when purchasing from affiliate stores and reward you for your spending. It couldn’t be easier.


If you have a presence online, whether a blog, website, or impressive social media following – there’s money to made from letting others advertise in front of your viewers. The type of advertising that you allow will be depend on your readership and what you plan to offer the advertiser. You could offer a monthly rate for a simple button or banner advert on your website, or provide regular promotion via your social networks and email contacts? Be imaginative and find out what potential advertisers would want. Once the adverts are in place, no further effort is required.

Rent out stuff

When you don’t have stuff to sell, use the lesser-known money making trick of renting items out instead! Sites like RentMyItem and RentNotBuy allow you to post listings for products you will hire out to locals. It could be anything from a formal frock to a ride-on lawn mower, anything expensive that others will benefit from borrowing rather than forking out for. Sites like this don’t provide protection if an item gets damaged… so think carefully before you lend. Asking for a deposit is highly recommended.

Work at home benefits

I’ve made a little accounting this morning and discovered that I’ve earned more than P200,000 already or more than $5000 since 2010. This amount came from one online company alone. The online earning has helped me and my family in so many ways. I was able to help my husband pay our bills, kids’ tuition, and bought personal effects and some stuff for our house. It’s not much compared to others who earn from their regular jobs, but I’m happy that I contribute something for the family expenses. This job doesn’t require me to leave home and allow me to work in my own pace. I also enjoy little things that I used to do when I was still working.

Potential jobs in Saudi Arabia

My nephew who works as a nurse in a government hospital in Saudi Arabia is here for a short vacation. He tells about his primary job in Jeddah and how tough the regular examinations given to them to advance their work competence. He also shared that his co-workers can buy expensive cars because of their hefty salary. There are more Filipinos working there as far as he knows and a number of them are employed in Medical & Clinical Laboratory Technologist Jobs. He said Saudi Arabia is a big place to search for potential job in the medical field. He plans to return to work next month.
