Finances can be tight and tough to manage around Christmas time each year. If you’re looking to make a bit of cash or just want to start the new year off financially-fit, here are some simple ideas for ways to make money at Christmas.
5 Simple Ways To Make Money At Christmas
1.Take On A Part-Time Christmas Job
The first, most obvious and easiest way to make money at Christmas time is to take on an extra job. Whilst the retail sector might not be as in need this year due to Covid-19 and local lockdowns, many industries are busier than ever.
Food Delivery Services – Just Eat, Deliveroo, Uber Eats, your local independent takeaways, Dominos Pizza
Courier Services – take a look to see who runs in your local area
Sorting Office Roles – with Royal Mail/ Courier Depots
Christmas-Specific Roles – themed events, selling Christmas trees, working Christmas Markets , Ice Rinks etc.
2.Sell Your Old Media & Electrical Items
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure – so why not spend an afternoon having a quick clearout of your old DVD’s, games, CD’s, books, consoles and phones?
Companies such as Ziffit, Mazuma Mobile, Music Magpie and CEX are great for getting rid of old gear quickly and with minimal fuss. You might not get the best prices, but if they’re just occupying space then it’s a win-win situation.
If you want to make a little more money, spend the time to list them in detail on auction sites like Ebay. It may take a little longer, but it’ll be worth it in the end financially.
3.Sell Your Old Clothes & Accessories
Again, the things you may consider out of touch could be someone else’s retro. Have a clearout of your wardrobe and if the items are in good, wearable condition get them listed on sites like Depop or Ebay.
Always remember to check you have added in your postage costs correctly, otherwise you may end up spending more than you bring in on an item.
4.Turn Your Craft/ Hobby Into A Small Business
If you’re crafty, why not turn your hobby into a small business and sell your creations? Now more than ever people are supporting independent sellers and creators. Websites like Etsy and Depop are a great place to start.
