Don’t Go For Broke this Christmas
There’s no need to wind up broke after Christmas, as long as you’re willing to think outside the box. The holiday season is without a doubt the most expensive time of the year. For no matter what our financial standing is, we always want to exert that little extra bit of generosity after a long year, so as to show our loved ones how much they mean to us. Whether its a beautiful piece of jewellery or a few books, every purchase adds up, which means we’re often forced into a rather austere January and February! However, as much as Christmas is a costly time of the year, it also presents a number of money making opportunities that could help you to offset your expenses during the holiday season.
Dress Up as Santa
There’s plenty of money to be made if you’ve got the right physique! From late November all the way through to Christmas day, shopping centres, department stores, clubs and bars are all on the lookout for the perfect santa to give their establishments that little touch of festive authenticity.
Get Bar Work
Bars and pubs – like all places during the festive season – are at their busiest. So, take full advantage! If you can manage to sneak a few evening in behind the bar, you’re sure to make some good money during the lead-up to Christmas. If you find the right establishment, you might even rake in a few tips!
Become a Postie for the Season!
Throughout November and December, Royal Mail hire roughly an extra 20,000 additional staff in order to cope with the high volume of parcels and post being sent throughout the country and overseas. Whether you go in as a mail sorter or a fully qualified driver, there’s money to be made helping Santa to get gifts and cards to their destination on time.
Clear Out The Clutter
Christmas and New Year is all about new beginnings. So why not make a little extra Christmas cash by selling your unwanted possessions at H & T Pawnbrokers? Maybe you’ve got some old jewellery hanging about unused? Or perhaps you’ve got a sneaking suspicion that Santa is about to replace your old telly with a brand new flatscreen? Well Christmas is the perfect time to offload some of your clutter and save a few bucks.
Make The Most of the Festive Season
So many people get stressed after Christmas due to financial troubles. But by taking hold of some of the money-making opportunities offered by Christmas, you will ensure that you don’t fall victim to the New Year blues.
