8 tips to make ends meet easily, without leaving home

The following list explores different avenues to make ends meet quickly and easily , mainly thanks to the internet.

1. Receive paid emails

Many websites offer the sending of paid emails. Concretely, you must create a free account with your e-mail address. Subsequently, you receive advertisements tailored to your consumption habits and each click earns you money.

In order to target their emailing campaigns, websites ask you to fill out a questionnaire to draw up your portrait. Every day, you check out serious and interesting offers, while earning a few cents. Of course, if you have the time to read as many messages as possible, this activity will significantly help you make ends meet. Do not hesitate to choose this method if you like to take advantage of good deals and if you are used to checking your emails regularly.

2. Carry out satisfaction surveys, paid surveys and tests

Your opinion matters and is valuable on some sites willing to pay you for your opinion . After registering for free on a paid survey site, you are rewarded in exchange for each of your contributions. These are useful for changing the products or services sold by survey sponsors.

Depending on your profile (age, gender, place of residence, etc.), you will receive more or less requests. For each of them, to get the reward, all you have to do is complete the questionnaire so that we can know your consumption habits and other opinions.

Otherwise, test websites, games, apps, cosmetics or food products for a fee. Some platforms even organize the sending of free products directly to you , to have your return. The Feature Point app offers to download and test mobile apps. As for the Testapic offer , it lets you test websites for a fee.

In addition, you should know that testing drugs before they are marketed pays well. In short, you will become a guinea pig for money . This is a legal and useful practice, but relatively risky.

3. Remember to claim your cashback

Would you like to earn money on every purchase you make online? Service providers offer to partially refund your order. By going through these specialized websites , you can get between 4% and 15% refund.

You really have nothing to lose by taking advantage of the concept of cashback. Quite the contrary, since you would have bought just as much, but without having the euros returned. It is therefore a laudable way to make ends meet by spending less.

Note that these sites can also offer you discount coupons and interesting paid assignments.

4. Rent your property

Thanks to the internet, almost everything can now be rented. Here is the most exhaustive possible list of properties that you can rent:

  • Your tools for individuals who need them occasionally for their construction or renovation work: drills, sander, wheelbarrow, ladder, etc. Some equipment, which is expensive to purchase, is particularly expensive for the day. Here is what to earn good sums of money by doing almost nothing.
  • Your accommodation thanks, for example, to the most famous platform in the field: Airbnb . Renting accommodation between individuals is a common practice in 2021. Depending on the type and location of the property you are renting, reservation rates rise to over € 100 per night. Are you unable to completely free your place of residence? In that case, you can probably meet filming needs for TV or theaters on sites like Cast Things . A great diversity of decorations being sought, everyone can offer their accommodation, whatever it is.
  • A parking space , which is rare in certain neighborhoods and highly sought after in urban areas. A well-located parking space can be rented for up to € 250 per month .
  • A storage space (a cellar, an attic or a garage) which can be of interest to all people who have no place to store their belongings. And there are many.
  • Your car, which instead of being a drain on maintenance, is going to help you make ends meet at the end of the month. This idea is ideal if you use your vehicle little. Earning several hundred dollars a month seems achievable.
  • Your garden to allow people to camp there while on vacation. To do this, the Homecamper.fr site is a good choice.
  • Your swimming pool if you are lucky enough to own one. Because you are probably not there all summer: rent it. This possibility is very popular every year, from the end of May to the end of September. Based on this observation, several platforms have specialized in the field. The most active is certainly Swimmy who provides an income simulator to realize the real benefits to be derived from it. In this way, earn monthly up to 2200 €.

5. Sell your goods on the internet

If you’re not interested in renting out your personal belongings, or you’ve already been around, sell online:

  • Items bought cheaper beforehand to generate a margin that is sometimes very comfortable. Although many transactions take place directly on the web, nothing prevents you from going to sell your items in second-hand shops, flea markets and garage sales. By doing so, you increase the opportunities to find a buyer and sell at the best price. Collectors are the most likely to spend a fortune on a piece they miss. Why not try to take advantage of it? Auctions are a good avenue for doing business for both acquisition and resale (via eBay for example).
  • Your clothes that you no longer wear and that unnecessarily clutter your closet.
  • Your used books which are currently gathering dust. Selling rare and sought after editions can pay off big.
  • Your DIY creations that quickly become profitable assuming that they meet the needs of individuals who want to offer original gifts or decorate their homes. Always in a creative spirit, if you love to take pretty pictures, your photos or videos will meet the needs of many professionals (website builders, among others).
  • Your empty ink cartridges that cost a lot to start with. You might as well get some of the money invested in the purchase, right?
  • Your hair provided it is long and silky … Against all expectations, there is a real market for the sale of hair. Usually, they are bought to make extensions or wigs.
  • Your documents if you are or have been a student. Earn more or less euros depending on the interest that customers have in them, as well as the intrinsic qualities of your presentations, briefs, etc.

6. Make sponsorship

On social networks or from your blog if you have one, generate subscriptions through an affiliate link, to earn a small commission – as a business provider. Note that sites like Loonea and Moolineo offer advantageous sponsorship packages, in addition to small, quick income- generating actions such as reading e-mails.

7. Scratch tickets online

Another popular solution, but more random, exists to make ends meet on the internet. Indeed, you can choose to have fun while earning money, through online scratch games . There are a large number of them: choose yours based on your appreciation of the interface – but also on the nature of the benefits offered.

BenefsNet is able to provide you with one or more legal and secure sites to play with the aim of making easy money. Note that the advantages of this practice are multiple: to begin with, it is not necessary to have a great command of the computer tool. In addition, the price of a scratch card is often zero or less than that of a physical card bought in a store, which makes it possible to try your luck several times. In addition, in many cases, free tickets are offered to players to encourage them (do not hesitate to take these opportunities).

8. Invest the money already earned

In the event that you already have some cash on hand, it may be a good idea to grow it to supplement your income. In this sense, we suggest some investment solutions to consider at the moment.
