Scarily Easy Ways to Make Money This Halloween

By Lauren is the creator of Brit On A Budget, which is all about finding new ways to make money, save money, and live your best life even when your budget is tight.

We’re heading into the time of year that can suck the life out of your bank account, and with Halloween fast approaching, most of us are looking for simple ways to increase our income and make some extra cash.

There are loads of easy ways to make money for the Halloween season, and you can complete all of them in your own time. Take a look at the suggestions below:

 

Fill out surveys

This is becoming an increasingly popular way for people to make fast money in their spare time, in return for a few minutes of filling out a survey, you can bag up to £10 on some survey sites!

Research companies are always looking for new members worldwide to complete surveys and test out new products, so now is your chance!

 

Write music reviews

Some sites will pay you to listen to music if you leave a review of a song once you’ve listened to it. The songs are anonymous until you have reviewed them, so your opinion can’t be influenced.

 

Sell your clutter online

If you want to make money fast, selling your old clothes and DVDs online can be one of the easiest ways to begin. You will need to take some decent photos of your items and write a detailed description, but for little effort, you can make a lot of money from it!

Heard of the saying ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’? What one person may consider worthless could be highly valued by someone else!

 

Get paid to watch TV

If your dream job is staying on your sofa and watching telly, it actually does exist! There are market research companies out there that will pay you to watch your favourite programmes from home.

You can earn anything from £40 to £70 for a 90 minute to 2-hour informal group discussion, which seems like a fair deal to me!

 

Exam invigilating

This is a great way to earn money around exam time, as all schools require invigilators to sit in exam rooms and ensure correct conditions take place.

You can also make money from marking exams, although you must have some knowledge in the subject you’re marking, which makes this a great way for students or graduates to make some extra cash in their spare time.

 

Smartphone apps

There are many smartphone apps that pay you to do small tasks around where you live, such as mystery shopping or taking photographs of product displays.

You can even do these tasks on your lunch break or during a shopping trip if you want to! You can expect to receive around £6 for completing a 15-minute job.

 

Competitions

Entering competitions is a fun and easy way to make money, and some people in the UK have made up to £50,000 a year from entering all sorts of competitions.

Types of competitions can vary from liking a Facebook page to filling out a simple registration form, and you can put as much or as little time into it as you want – however, the more time you put in and competitions you enter, the better your results will be.
