A report out this week shows that UK householders are feeling more worried about their finances than ever, even though there are green shoots of recovery showing. So we’ve dug out our ‘magnificent seven’ ways to make money quickly for all.
1. Online surveys – give your opinion and get paid for it
This brings in a relatively small income, but is low effort and a great way to make quick cash from the comfort of your computer. Some of our favourite free sites, as recommended by you Moneymagpie readers, include Digital Trends, MySurvey and Valued Opinions. Try setting up a separate email account first so your personal one doesn’t get flooded with survey-related emails, and remember that genuine online survey sites will never ask you to pay or reveal your card details. Always stay safe online – click here to find out more.
Also get free goodies to test out for Toluna. They have loads of products they need to have tested so if you sign up for the testing side you can get new things every month. Right now, for example, they’re getting people to test out men’s hair gel and some glossy lip balm. So you can see the kind of things you could get to try for nothing. Click here to join up now and get all these great freebies.
2. Pick the best competitions
Most of us never bother with competitions because we think our chances of winning are so slim, but it’s much more likely than you might think. The website Prime Prizes is a great place to start. Free to join, it has plenty of prizes up for grabs like luxury holidays, hampers and shopping sprees.

5. Make money as a mother
You could make hundreds by teaching mothering skills to new mums. British Doulas runs a course for mums who would like to become doulas and make around £15 an hour as a post-birth doula. Birth doulas make about £400 for a birth. Find out more about upcoming courses.
