Also a good idea to have house rules from the start~~boring but true.
Check if you have any old CDs or books you could sell with Ziffit, cookbooks and language courses seemed to get paid particularly well when I did it.
Also, sign up for Prolific survey site, I've made over £200 from that in less than 2 years. There are other half decent survey sites but none of them pay as well as Prolific, plus the surveys are much more interesting there too.
Also JobSpotter if you walk a lot. You take pics of job adverts in shop/restaurant windows and get paid in Amazon vouchers. I've had over £100 in vouchers in past 18 months or so.
Get Shoppix and Receipthog apps and scan any receipts you have with those for more vouchers/cash. I probably get a fiver off Shoppix every couple of months.
Lastly, sign up for grassroots mystery shopping. Can get paid £10 per assignment and it's usually quick and easy. I've done about 5 of them.
None of these things will make you a fortune, but if you're desperate they can really help.
I probably make an extra £20 a month between all these and I'm not even trying very hard.
