Do you need to make some extra cash during lockdown?
My advice is to start at home… After all, charity begins at home.
Here are 5 unconventional ways to make money during lockdown:
- Cut what you can cut
Do you need Dstv, Netflix and Showmax?
Make a list of what you have been watching and decide what subscription you actually need i.e. explain to me why do you need all three?
I’m sure you get my point – you don’t NEED all three. Choose wisely and watch your money free up?
- Sell what you can
You NOW have the perfect opportunity to de-clutter your wardrobe , your house, your kids rooms etc.
I won’t lie to you , people WILL buy your kids old toys! Or your old toys *wink wink* – Get your brain out of the gutter! LOL
Talk to me if you need help selling your old goods online and together we’ll make it happen !
- Up-cycle your boring leftovers
Growing up in a coloured household, I was taught to not waste a thing.
Tired of that Sunday roast chicken, why not up-cycle it into chicken pasta? And another plus you can freeze chicken pasta
If you boil your chicken, don’t throw away the water, there’s your chicken stock block. Freeze liquid in ice block trays, wait 2-3 hours to use – you’re welcome!
- Use tea-bags for fire lighters
We ALL know South Africans love to braai, think about how many times you had braai meat during the lockdown?
But did you know , dried out tea-bags make excellent fire lighters ?
After having a cuppa rooibos tea, extract tea bag from said cup and leave in sun too dry. Collect a few and your fire will be crackling faster than you can click your fingers.
- Where you can walk, walk your heart out
I am fully aware that the price of petrol has dropped dramatically since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown in South Africa
However, if you can and if its safe to do so – take a walk to the shop to get your essentials
You are not breaking the law, you saving on petrol money, you getting your essentials and you getting in some exercise
Please talk to me, if you need some help with any of the above ideas – it does work!
However, you have to be patient, it does take time
BUT… all you have – is time!
So why not try it – you’re welcome !
