3 Ways To Make Extra Cash When You're In Debt

If you’re struggling financially it’s usually because your income doesn’t match your outgoings and you have to borrow to close that gap. When you’re trying to get out of debt, cutting back on your spending is sometimes enough but in some cases, you’ll still have a deficit there. In that situation, your only option is to bring in more money. You could always look for a job with a higher salary or alternatively, you could find ways to earn a little extra money on the side to supplement your wage. There are all sorts of different ways to earn a bit of extra cash, here are some of the best ones.

Driving Jobs

There are loads of different jobs that you can do with just a car and a driving license. It’s easy to register as an Uber driver and start making extra money on evenings and weekends. You choose how much you want to work so you could do just a few hours a couple of times a week if you want to. You could also do a few nights a week as a delivery driver as well, you’d be surprised how much money you can make in tips on top of the hourly rate that you’ll get paid. If you’ve got a heavy goods vehicle license, you could get some work as a truck driver which pays quite well. You’ll have to work longer hours but if you’re just working part time at the minute, it’s a good way to boost your earnings. If you are going to do that, it’s worth getting in touch with some truck accident lawyers in case of an accident. Being in a truck accident could put you out of work altogether for quite a while so you’ll need to claim some kind of compensation.

Virtual Assistant

Trying to fit extra work around your normal day to day schedule is difficult so any work that you can do from home is perfect. A lot of companies that are trying to save on office space are starting to use virtual assistants instead. You’ll answer emails and phone calls from the comfort of your own home and you’ll get paid a decent amount of money for it. It’s perfect for families where one parent needs to stay home with the kids.

Stock Photos

Websites and blogs are always after license free photographs that they can use for articles and somebody needs to take all of those shots. If you’re keen on photography and you’re taking pictures all the time anyway, you might as well try to sell them and make a bit of cash from them. You can get pictures of pretty much anything, just try to avoid getting any brand names or anything else that might infringe on copyright, and always remember to ask permission if you’ve got somebody in your shot. You’ll need to spend a bit of money on a decent camera but after that, you’ll start making some good money.

These are all great ways to make a bit of extra money fast, without disrupting your schedule too much.
