    To start I'd post an soa here for people to have a look at to see whether you can make any savings and suggest a plan of action. Follow the link below, and format to mse. Make sure it's realistic - going through bank statements is a good way to see what you're actually spending.

    With regards to working from home to earn extra providing it's not part of your work contract not to do other paid work, and you're declaring your income to hmrc, then I can't see a problem. There is a boost your income board on the forum, link below:

    If you are looking for an extra thirty or fifty quid a month then look at sites such as Prolific Academic or YouGov.

    You can make decent money just filling out surveys, it's linked to your Paypal and you can withdraw when over £5. It's a good little income boost.
    Started out with nothing, still got most of it left.
