How to do a BIG while sitting at home doing nothing… no, we’re not kidding
A 24-year-old YouTuber went viral recently after revealing she was worth £ 230,000.
And the secret to Queenie Tan’s success? Do nothing.
She said, “By creating our passive income streams, we can spend time doing the things we really want to do. “
Queenie earns money from high interest rate banks and renting board games, her driveway, and her car.
Here, Siobhan O’Connor reveals some really nifty ways to make your home profitable.
£ 25 per day – parking fee
THE WALKS are a privilege and if you have one, now is the time to make the most of it. Turn concrete into coins by offering your parking space.
You can check its value on justpark.com and even list it there or on sites like stashbee.com and parkonmydrive.com.
But if you live in a busy area, near a beach or a popular attraction, the easiest way is to put a sign on your porch. Aisles in London can cost around £ 25 for the day.
£ 6.50 per day – hire storage space
Like driveways, garages are hot commodities because they offer plenty of storage space.
From commuters to those who are temporarily moving overseas, you can charge them to store their stuff.
Those who rent a garage in London can earn up to £ 200 per month. Stashbee.com is a good platform for this.
£ 20 a day – sell your waste
Jars of jam, garden hoses, furniture – one person’s garbage is another’s treasure, so don’t just throw it out.
The old stuff you have lying around can find a new home on the Facebook Marketplace or Gumtree seller sites, which list everything from jars to children’s toys and more.
Take a photo, upload and wait for someone to come and pick it up.
£ 100 per week – become a host family
USE your spare bedroom for students and teachers. Check the rules for your area and register on sites such as homestay.com.
Signing up on Airbnb can also earn around £ 100 per week for hosting international students.
For a tenant, under the government’s Rent a Room program, you can earn up to £ 7,500 tax free per year, which works out to around £ 625 per month.
£ 2.50 per day – get paid to buy online
Get paid to make yourself happy. Airtimerewards.co.uk offers cash back on purchases of High Street favorites including Boots, Wilko and Argos which is then deducted from your phone bill.
Sites like Quidco will pay you to have your friends sign up and give you a percentage of what you spend at certain retailers.
Offers vary, but if it’s 5% cash back, on a £ 50 jacket it comes down to £ 2.50 in your pocket.
£ 5 a day – spend your steps
If you’re struggling to meet your daily step goal, then getting paid to move can help.
Walk around your house and earn rewards with the Sweatcoin app. Make 0.95 sweatcoins for 1,000 steps – that’s almost $ 5 for 5,000 steps – and use them to buy anything from hand sanitizer to vacations.
The BetterPoints app converts points into vouchers for High Street stores.
£ 20 to £ 50 per day – share your stuff
DO YOU HAVE a house full of gadgets that you rarely use? Lend them. The Fat Llama borrowing app lets you list everything from a camera and cot to speakers and scooters.
Neighbors lend their slow cooker for 5 euros, bikes for £ 20 and a camera for £ 50.
Even that tent hidden away most of the year in your shed could save you money.
£ 16.60 per day – dog walking or dog sitting
If you already take daily walks for your own dog, pick up a stranger’s dog on the way for extra pocket money.
Become a sitter on sites like rover.com that lets you mark your availability on a calendar and walk the local dogs, or sit while working from home – you can tailor it to your schedule.
You could earn up to £ 500 per month walking and keeping pets.
£ 800 a day – make it a location
FASHION shoots, movies and TV spots are always on the lookout for homes to use as a backdrop.
No matter how perfect or chic your home is, there are countless creative teams out there that would pay to use the space, especially if each room is decorated in different colors and styles.
Get professional photos of your property and upload them to sites like scouty.com. You can charge £ 1,000 for a 9 to 5 job, earning you up to £ 800.
