The holiday season is just around the corner and with it comes all the usual holiday stresses like making sure you have enough money to get gifts for everyone you need to buy for as well as having the money for the snacks, drinks and all those extra holiday goodies. Depending on what kind of time you have at your disposal it can be hard to take on extra work or work a second job, but here are a couple of great ways to save up some money for the holidays.
Getting A Part-Time Job
It’s no surprise that during the holidays one of the best things to do is to get a second part-time job doing things like delivering holiday post, working in restaurants and pubs or retail or even doing things like working for pop up Santa villages as the photographer or other characters like elves or Santa himself. Other options include getting a job helping to wrap gifts for others who don’t have the time or the knack. Any of these can be great and can also help lift your festive spirit. Around the Christmas season in the lead up and shortly after there are a plethora of great part time roles around, so have a look in your local area and see how you can cash in this season if you have the extra time.
Playing Online Lottery Games
It could be considered risky by some but today so many online games such as the lotto powerball have great odds of winning and lots give you either free money with which to play the games with no deposit required. Not only are they fun and easy to play, but they can really help you save up some money for Christmas with special bonuses and the like. You don’t need to know anything special to play most of the games either, so literally anyone can take advantage of this awesome option.
Cash In The Attic
We’re not suggesting you go on the popular TV show, although you could if you wanted to! Instead check out what could be lurking in your loft or cellar that could be worth a pretty penny if you were to sell it to an antiques dealer or sell it on the likes of eBay. Any manner of things can be tucked away in dusty boxes, left to be forgotten under the rafters of the house, some worth serious cash. With many antique dealers and the like that you can take items like this to paying good prices, it’s easy to see why so many people are starting to sell off old heirlooms or other antiques that no longer serve a purpose aside from collecting dust.
There you have a couple of great ways to bump up the money for the holidays and some great ways to do it too! This is just the tip of the iceberg though – there are literally dozens of ways you can save money for Christmas and now is the perfect time to take advantage of the last seven weeks or so before the big day!
