was thinkin that but did one 2 weekends ago and made £11 so its put me off a bit!!

Ebay stuff.

I think people are more likely to buy from ebay than car boot because they can do it comfort of their own homes and so can you.

Do you have a website locally, or a free classified ad section in local paper.

Put up for sale any outgrown bikes/ scooters/ rollerskates/garden toys. Also any ELC or Disney toys, bundles of clothes, etc. Stuff that sells well basically. If you have any camping gear you no longer use advertise that as everyone is taking up camping and looking for bargains.

Ironing, gardening, or babysitting for friends or neighbours?

I saw an advert on tv to sell your gold.

Or how about busking?

Can you have a think about ways in which you can save money for the next week? Can you try to walk more rather than take the car? Reduce shopping bill by a tenner? Cook at home instead of a takeaway, and avoid the bottle of wine you usually have at the weekend?

mousey, think thats what im gunna have to do. not got any gold, need my camping stuff as thats what i need this money for - my camping trip!

been hunting high and low but not got anything forebay. did another bootsale about 2 months ago and sold most of the stuff i didn't want. only got clothes left which dont sell very well at bootsales or on ebay

oh, i need to win the lottery!!

Do you have any lose change around that you could bag up and change at the bank?

juicychops Wed 24-Jun-09 20:53:30

only a couple of quid at most. changed up my penny pot recently. think saving is the way to go.

forgot about some Oasis tickets i bought last year for 12 july. gunna sell them when i get them sent through. should get them by next monday the box office said so will try and get at least face value £100 for them
