£1000 to earn

Hi all
Its the 1st November! I know - crazy
I want to try and earn £1000 by the end of the year.
I currently work Full Time in a supermarket, earning £900 a month.
I would like to try and earn an EXTRA £1000 in what remains of 2019
I currently dabble with Swagbucks, have registered with InstaGC - do not get it.
Any help/advice/other means?
Cheers
MD

    Overtime?
    Second job?
    Sell stuff?

    I agree, overtime at your current job is probably going to be the only,realistic way of doing this. Or else sell stuff or get another job.

  • I think it's manageable if you sell unused stuff lying around of value. Once you learn how to sell on eBay/Amazon you will have a good idea of what sells and what doesn't sell well online. Good luck!
  • If you want to make more money, you should also think long term. How do I work myself out of this current job? Instead of working more hours and moving nowhere, invest that time in training yourself for your next role.
  • You could probably get around half way there from matched betting and Qmee.

  • 1. Reduce your costs as much as possible.
    2. Pay attention to the Freelance websites. For example copywriter or a native speaker can be highly rated on foreign resources.

    For that sort of money - overtime at your current work, a second job or a loan is probably the only realistic way.
