Christmas is usually a time when seasonal, part time jobs help to boost personal income to get consumers through the winter months of parties, presents and household bills. According to The BRC Retail Employment Monitor, last year 61% of high street retail stores took on more staff in the run up to Christmas, this year it’s more likely to only be 54%. Taking into account that 70,000 jobs were lost on the high street in September and with further losses expected, the competition for employment this Christmas will be extremely fierce.
So, if you can’t get a job on the high street to earn some extra cash, where else should you look?
Get paid for your opinion
Moneysavingexpert.com has an excellent database of sites that pay you £1-3 for just a few minutes of your time. You can earn £100s from participating in web surveys and research. Not only will you earn some extra cash but they can often be quite fun too, especially if you like to have your say!
Sell your old, unwanted gold jewellery
So many people either do not realise the potential of the old gold they own or are saving it for a rainy day. Well guess what, that day is here. With gold prices as high as they are right now, you’d be wise to sell any old, broken or unwanted gold jewellery and trinkets now. A good gold buyer like postgoldforcash.com will also pay you cash for your gold so you could have the money in your hand within 48 hours.
No one’s saying you should get rid of cherished family heirlooms, but if you have any broken, tangled, damaged or unfashionable gold jewellery, sell it now before the prices come back down (which they inevitably will soon).
Cash for clothes
You may have seen brands on TV advertising cash for mobile phones and cash for gold, but there’s a new industry emerging, cash for clothes. Instead of trudging to the local charity shop to donate your unwanted clothes, in these desperate financial times how about receiving cash for your clothes instead? The cash for clothes companies will pay cash against the weight of your clothes rather than against its brand, style, size etc… These clothes are re-sold though so must be in saleable condition.
Team up with big brands
Do you write your own blog? Have you got your own website with decent traffic volumes? If so, you could get paid to host ads and content on your site. Signing up to Google AdSense or getting in contact with sites like myblogguest.com could start you off on the road to a nice little earner all year long.
These are just some of the simple but effective ways to earn some extra cash this Christmas. For further money making ideas visit www.postgoldforcash.com/money-saving-tips.aspx
