This year has been one of the most difficult for all of us and it has caused a lot of us to struggle financially. If since lockdown has begun you have been either limited to the work you can do or you have lost your job altogether it is important now to take some time and get back on your feet to earn extra money from home.
There are many ways to make money at home this winter, and once you have paid for Christmas you can make some money back for your family with some of these jobs.
Edit a book
If you have a keen eye for grammar and love to read; you have the perfect opportunity to edit novels for people all over the world using Upwork. Upwork is a freelancer network and allows you to find and post jobs for people to complete. Choosing to edit books in your spare time can bring you a decent cash injection and of course will be a fun activity to do.
Sell your hobby
It is so important if you have a hobby to take the chance to capitalise on it in times of hardship. If you have a hobby such as pottery, jewellery making, or painting – now is the time to sell your pieces to the public and make some money for yourself. Investing in your talents in this way is incredibly important and it will allow you to make some extra dough doing something you genuinely enjoy doing every day.
If you have an hour free each day, one way to make the most of that time is to review music online. Solo artists and bands will put their new songs up for review and you can make money reviewing the price and adding your thoughts. This can be a nice way to earn some extra cash while also discovering some new music to enjoy.
Carry out deliveries
If you have a car or a truck to hand and you want to make some extra money this year it is a great idea to take on freelance trucking loads. Using the free load board on Shiply you can find jobs with the highest paying loads and take some time out of your week transporting goods from one place to the next. Time on the road is always fun and you’ll be able to enjoy spending some time making money without being stuck behind your desk.
For those of you who love to bake and want to make the most of it this winter – try baking treats and selling them to people locally. You can make anything from cakes to brownies and even cookies for those who live in your community and this can be a fun way to earn a little extra dough this winter.
Small food businesses need your help now more than ever; and now is the time you should volunteer your services to help them deliver takeaway meals to people throughout the winter. Use your car to help small local businesses deliver food and stay in business over what has been the hardest year of their lives financially.
