But that’s probably not the reason why you want to make the money in the first place. You’re probably struggling to get by, so these great ideas will take the stress right off your back and have you making money in no time.
Get a house mate
You don’t have to be in college to share your house with someone. It’s the middle of the worst financial crisis you can remember. Lots of people are combating this by getting someone to move in and help with the mortgage. People pay good money to rent a nice room in a house instead of being weighed down by the responsibilities that comes with the debt of owning their own home. And it’s also really fun, providing you pick the right person. It’s great for people lacking in a social life because you have an instant friend.
Rent the driveway
If you don’t have a car you can always rent out the driveway. You’d be surprised by the number of people that will take you up on this. There are some conditions that have to be met. You can’t live out in the middle of nowhere. They don’t want to park their car there for fun. You have to live somewhere in the city, or even next to a bus or train station further outside the city. So they can park the car there in the morning and head to work. You will get use of it at night time.
Well not you specifically, but your house. There are lots of production companies looking for houses to rent for the day to make things like documentaries and movies. It’s not like you need some fancy Georgian house with beautiful interior. It still needs to be nice. Don’t bother trying this if you can’t tidy up after yourself. You might want to make sure you have enough space available for parking because there will be a lot of people going about. Maybe you should let the neighbors know, just in case they’re not pleased.
Find an exchange student
People all over the world want to come in stay in your country. They come over to study the language and the best possible way they can learn is by staying with a host family. You will get money to host them and all you need to do is provide them with a comfortable environment to live and get on with their studies. You’ll get to cook them dinner and help them improve their English. By the time they are ready to go home you won’t want to say goodbye. Contact local language schools for more information on the opportunities available.
