Which are legitimate?

So I'm in a transitional period between jobs, with the added caveat that we're moving from Durham to Glasgow by the end of 2019 but we're stuck for the next few weeks. Now between bills, pets and debt we don't have a spare penny from my amazing wife's paycheck. I'm looking for temp or part time jobs but no joy so far.

Just wondering if there are legitimate ways to make money from home? I don't mean this survey nonsense, been there, tried it, never again.

I'd Google it but you can imagine the results I get. Most advice greatly appreciated!

    There isn't any genuine. " Work from home" jobs that make decent money.

    Ignore any of the pyramid Scentsy, bettaware, Avon , body shop at home. Only winners there are those well up the pyramid.

    a) Clearly if you come on here and make disparaging remarks about a perfectly legitimate way to make cash which many of us use, you are unlikely to get as many people responding as otherwise.
    b) There's a guide, read it, effort, I know.
    c) People wouldn't do surveys if there was some kind of magical way you could make more money, easier then this, and even if there was, with the arrogant tone of the initial email, why would we help you?
    d) Learn to google more efficiently.

    I'll change the bit in bold and answer this one for you.

    Yes, yes there are. Loads of different ways. Unfortunately, all of them require hard work, effort and determination to get any sort of decent return from them. Not simply a Google search.

    I've given up on most survey sites, probably for similar reasons to you.
    But prolific is certainly worth a look at as it pays a decent rate for the time spent in £per hour.
