Need More Money – Five ways You Can Boost your Bank Balance

Bills, bills, bills. Sometimes, it’s all we’re faced with, and man does that get frustrating! If you’re working in a job, you already know exactly how much money you have coming in each month – and you already know that it’s not enough to support your lifestyle. There’s good news, however: it’s nearly always possible to bring in some extra cash, you just need to get a little creative. Here are five ways you can boost your bank balance.


Having a Clear Out

The average home has somewhere in the region of $3000 worth of “junk” that they’re not using and could sell, so what are you waiting for? It’s time to dig through your old drawers and cupboards to clear out anything that might be valuable but which you no longer need. You might have a pretty extensive DVD or CD collection but have personally made the transition to digital; even if every one of those DVDs or CDs brought in $1 each, that could be big money. Take a look at and start bringing in the cash!

Selling the Big Stuff

Of course, DVDs and CDs can only get you so far. If you need more money, why not look at selling your most expensive items? People are worth more than they think they are; it’s just their money is tied up in their car, televisions, and so on. If you live in a city, you might not even need a car. Open it up to buyers from across the country and then use a service like to get it to them safe and sound. It might just give you an extra few thousand dollars in your bank account.

Working from Home

There’s a lot of money to be made online, so if you spend a lot of time at home why not look into these opportunities? You might not make a full-time wage, but it’ll be a top up to your existing income. Admin work, designing, website building, and writing opportunities can be found at various places on the web.

Getting Smart

The best way to have more money in your bank account is to…not spend the money you do have in the first place. If you take just a little bit of time to review your current outgoings, you might find that you’re paying for things that you could really do without. For example, how much does your phone contract cost each month? Could it be cheaper? Also, cable is an expensive luxury that most people can live without. Cut the cord, and you’ll have more disposable income each month.

What’s Your Talent?

Everyone has a talent, but not everyone really believes they’re good enough to make money from it. The truth is, most people can make money from it! While you might not be a professional guitarist, they’ll be someone in your neighborhood who wants guitar lessons and is happy to pay for it. Take a chance, and you might end up making money just for doing something you love!
