We are on basic/cheapest packages for everything / Don't have holidays...and have some family circumstances that aren't changeable

Any ideas?

I mark short courses online. Make about £700 a month for about 10 hours a week. Pm me if you want details

Isn’t matched betting hugely complicated? And if the betting sites catch on to what you’re doing then you’ll get your accounts closed?

I cook meals for people too busy/lazy to cook but wanting to impress, or just families wanting home cooked stuff. You need to get your kitchen certified by the council hygiene people or have access to a commercial kitchen (I do at work). Can make good money for dinner parties in particular, funerals gatherings are surprisingly lucrative too

Ah I always comment on these topics - I run a small marketing company and am always after anyone who can write feel free to pm le

And just to add, if other people are encouraged to gamble through it then that surely isn’t anyone’s responsibility other than the gambler’s... so I don’t have any moral issue with matched betting, just wanted to know how complicated it is and whether the amount of work involved is actually worth it... had read somewhere that it isn’t as it takes hours and hours which when added up don’t actually add up to a huge amount of money....

Another vote for Matched betting


MsLexic · 12/10/2018 22:05

Right can't work out that matched betting thing at all.
Guess I will just have to go stand at the traffic lights then.


SummerGems · 12/10/2018 22:06

Nope me either. Incredibly complicated and involves signing up to multiple bookies to take advantage of offers or something?

I always know people who are looking for cleaners. I used to do it as a student. No financial outlay needed at all.

I have turned a crafty hobby into an income. I work in the evenings after my normal job and the kids have gone to bed.

I have pm'd you @Juststopit


MouseholeCat · 12/10/2018 22:21

One of my friends earns a really, really good side income from podcasting but it's a lot of effort.

Between matched betting, mystery shopping and eBay I've made £200-£500/month in the past which got us through a tight spot.

I know a few people who do Dominoes delivery in the evening. Or you can get work from home customer service jobs.
