This weekend marked our first year in the house, I genuinely can't believe it's been so long since we were in the middle if house viewings and that dreadful buying process! We were very lucky to be able to save the majority of our deposit whilst still at uni, do I thought I'd share some tips on how to make a bit of extra money when you're saving for something big.
My number one way to make some extra cash is by having a big clear out and listing your old bits on ebay, it's always suprising at how much stuff you realise that you never wear or use, and how much money you can make even if you're just listing a couple of things. Ebay gives you 20 free listings each month so it's always worth having a go.
If you fancy yourself a bit of a gambling girl then you can always try your luck on an gaming website like online casino netbet. Playing a few games is definitely more fun than listing your old stuff online, but just make sure you give yourself a reasonable budget to prevent you from spending more than you win! Haha. Personally I've always been a fan of playing a few games of slots, and it gives you something to do on a Friday night if you're staying in to avoid spending silly amounts on a night out.
My last tip would be to always look out for discount codes if you're shopping online. You can almost always find a £12 or £15 off a £60 spend for all supermarkets, so it's worth a quick search before you head to the checkout page. You can also head to MySupermarket to find the best deals before you even start your shop, that way you get the cheapest deals, and then money off on top!
