Really struggling at the minute

Like really bad

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

Any ideas?

I have a seasonal main job which leaves me with some time in the summer. Have started a little baking sideline, 5* food hygiene rating.

DH and I have also started a monthly supper club, with 8 people round the table for an inclusive price. It's going quite nicely and books up about 3 weeks in advance. I'd like to develop that a bit more.

I do projects for Appen in my spare time. I do about 1-2 hours a day. The project I'm on at the moment is £10.61 an hole roughly Smile so it's about £320 extra a month.

How does Viewber guarantee your personal safety?

I feed peoples cats in their own homes when the owners are on holiday...takes a few mins morning and evening and pays quite well.

pangolina yes, I use Clickworker and UHRS. I also use Figure Eight and Microworkers. Then there's the survey sites like Swagabucks, InstaGC, Branded Surveys, Valued Opinions, Prolific Academic etc.

My DB lives abroad and let’s his house out. I manage it for him and this saves him money from the estate agents who were a rip off and pretty hopeless anyway. I have a great company who deals with any problems extremely quickly and most months am required to do nothing at all for £250.

It’s a win win. Before the LL haters comment I also have a great relationship with the tenants.
