A 24-year-old YouTuber went viral recently after revealing she is worth £230k.
And the secret to Queenie Tan’s success? Doing nothing.
She said: “By building up our passive income streams we can spend time doing the things we really want to do.”
Queenie makes money from high interest banks and renting out board games, her driveway and her car.
Here, Siobhan O'Connor reveals super savvy ways to cash in on your home.
£25 a day – charge for parking
DRIVEWAYS are a privilege and if you’ve got one it’s time to make the most of it. Turn concrete into coins by offering up your parking space.
You can check its worth on justpark.com and even list it there or on sites such as stashbee.com and parkonmydrive.com.
But if you live in a busy area, near a popular beach or attraction then the simplest way is by placing a placard on your porch. Driveways in London can fetch around £25 for the day.
£6.50 a day – rent storage space
JUST like driveways, garages are hot property, as they offer plenty of storage space.
From commuters to those moving abroad temporarily, you can charge them to store their stuff.
Those renting out garage space in London can earn up to £200 a month. Stashbee.com is a good platform for this.
£20 a day – sell your rubbish
JAM jars, hosepipes, furniture – one person’s trash is another’s treasure, so don’t just bin it.
Old junk you have lying around can find a new home through sellers’ sites Facebook Marketplace or Gumtree, which list everything from jars to kids’ toys and more.
Take a snap, upload and wait for someone to come and collect.
£100 a week – become a host family
UTILIISE your spare room for students and lecturers. Check rules for your area and sign up to sites such as homestay.com.
Listing on Airbnb can also make around £100 a week for hosting foreign students.
For a lodger, under the Government’s Rent a Room scheme, you can earn up to £7,500 tax free per year, equating to around £625 a month.
£2.50 a day – get paid to shop online
GET paid to treat yourself. Airtimerewards.co.uk gives cashback on purchases from High Street favourites including Boots, Wilko and Argos, which is then deducted from your phone bill.
Sites such as Quidco will pay you for getting friends to sign up, and will give you a percentage of what you spend at certain retailers.
The offers vary, but if it’s 5 per cent cashback, on a £50 jacket that’s £2.50 back in your pocket.
£5 a day – spend your steps
IF you’re struggling to hit your daily steps target then getting paid to move might help.
Walk around your house and earn rewards with the Sweatcoin app. Make 0.95 sweatcoins for every 1,000 steps – that’s nearly a fiver per 5,000 steps – and use them to buy anything from hand sanitiser to a holiday.
The BetterPoints app converts points into vouchers for High Street stores.
£20-£50 a day – share your stuff
GOT a house full of gadgets you rarely use? Lend them out. Borrowing app Fat Llama lets you list anything from a camera and cot to speakers and scooters.
Neighbours are lending their slow cooker for a fiver, bikes for £20 and camera for £50.
Even that tent stashed away most of the year in your shed could see you cash in.
£16.60 a day – dog walking or dog sitting
IF you’re already taking daily strolls for your own dog, pick up a stranger’s pooch en route for extra pocket money.
Become a sitter on sites such as rover.com which lets you mark your availability on a calendar and walk local dogs, or pup sit while working from home – you can make it suit your schedule.
You can reportedly earn up to £500 a month walking and pet sitting.
£800 a day – make it a location
FASHION shoots, films and TV adverts are always on the look out for homes to use as backdrops.
It doesn’t matter if your home is picture-perfect or lived-in chic, there are countless creative teams that would pay to use the space – particularly if each room is decorated in different colours and styles.
Get professional photos done of your property and upload to sites such as scouty.com. You can charge £1k for a 9-5 job, taking home up to £800.
