5 unusual ways to make money

I do like an original idea.

In the world of being thrifty it is usually common sense that rules not originality but every so often I hear something new and I am delighted to share it with you ….

You could become a life model for an art or sculpture class. All you really need is a bit of confidence and the ability to sit still and rates of pay  can be really good. Have look here if you fancy registering. I did this when I was a student and it is embarrassing for about 5 minutes and then completely fine…oh and they did provide a heater and let me break for a stretch and a cup of tea!


Renting out your drive is an unusual way to make money admittedly but it requires minimal amounts of effort.  Have a look at Just Park and sign your drive up for some work!

Downsizing may sound radical but it will make you money in the short terms and save you money on bills in the long term. Do you really need all the space you have?  Well worth thinking about particularly if your kids have moved on.

How about some online trading? At places such as Banc De Binary you can try your hand at trading, Trading binary options is simple. Investors focus exclusively on whether the financial asset will go or up down in a set time. It is highly speculative though so never ever speculate more than you can afford to lose.

Ever considered counting votes? It’s not complicated and it is a nice way to make a bit of extra money  simply call your local council and ask them how you apply.

Do you have any ideas for out of the box thinking on ways to make money. If you do I would absolutely love to hear from you !

    Hi Becky,

    Renting your parking space definitely is a great idea, especially since parking in UK cities can be difficult and very expensive. You’ll always find drivers who are interested in your parking space, whether it’s a driveway or garage.

    In a way, it’s like Airbnb for their car:) I also suggest you use https://www.yourparkingspace.co.uk/ as they let you rent your parking spot on a monthly basis too.
