Make extra cash for Christmas! Here is how:
- Turn your thermostat down!
Turning your thermostat down by just 1 or 2 degree is a great way to save money! Wear cosy socks, grab a hot-water bottle, cuppa and snuggle with a soft blanket!
The other way to keep warm is… cleaning your house! Grab a hoover and start deep cleaning your house. You will be warmed up 🙂
- Plan your meals for the week!
Make all your meals for the next week just based on what you already have in your kitchen. Search in your freezer, fridge and cupboards to see what you can use to prepare your meals. I challenge you! You will be amazed of how much you can cook only out of products, you already have in your cupboards! I promise, you will survive 😉
- Cancel unwanted subscriptions
Many of us are paying for subscriptions we don’t even know about, from music streaming to gym memberships and haven’t used since signing up. Go trough your bank statement, and see if there is any extra money going out of your account. Work out whether you’re using your subscriptions enough and it’s actually worth paying. Maybe it’s a good idea to cancel the subscription until next year, and if you feel like you really need this, just sign up again starting from January!
- Save on electric!
I recently realised it’s a good habit to turn off your router, as well as other devices during the night. It is consuming electricity, without you realising! It’s also healthier, you will sleep a lot better without all the radiation from the router at night! Check in the house what can you switch off from power, I’ve set up my smart plugs to automatically switch off after 00:00. When I wake up I manually turn it on.
5. Complete surveys for extra cash!
Online surveys are great way to earn extra money. I do them in my spare time, in the queues, whenever I get chance. It is not a huge amount of money, but it’s better than nothing! Here are the best online-surveys with quick payout:
Opinion Outpost – You can redeem the reward just from 50 points which you can make within… 1 hour! 50 points equals £2.50 voucher for Amazon! 🙂
YouGov – Earn points and receive quick bank transfers. 5,000 points = £50 cash! The money is sent via bank transfer within the next working day.
LifePoints – One of my favourites, very easy and quick payout!
OpinionInn – With OpinionInn, each survey will let you earn money which gets credited to your to OpinionInn account. You can redeem the money through PayPal once you reach the minimum redeem limit of $25. (Yes, even if your currency is Pound sterling, you still get paid)
