How To Boost Your Bank Account This Month

21st February 2019

January has been a tough month for everyone with the stress of Christmas still lingering and bills needing to be paid everywhere you look. If you are struggling to make your paycheck stretch, you need to remember that you are not alone. To help you get back on track and start 2019 off with a bang, we have put together some tips on how you can boost your bank account this month. Keep reading to find out more.

Sell Online

Our first tip is for those who have homes that are full of unwanted items. This can be especially useful for those with children who have outgrown both toys and clothing and other expensive items. Our idea is for you to start selling these things online. Sites like eBay allow you to post the items and sell them with very little hassle. Even if you aren’t charging much, you’ll see your bank account building over time.

Remember if you don’t fancy selling your unwanted things online you could always visit a local car boot sale and get some extra cash and declutter your home at the same time!

Online Casino

Online casinos can be a really great way of boosting your bank account if you’re lucky enough to win a top prize or a jackpot. All you need to do is find the right online casino for you and make sure that you are getting a good bonus for signing up - for example Stakers will match your first deposit with a 50% bonus up to 100 EUR. Once you have joined the site, you can try your luck at slot games or live dealer casino games. There are so many different games that you can play and some of them come with big jackpots for only a few pounds a spin.

While this comes with some risks in terms of losing money – you could end up winning a lot if you’re lucky. Remember to set a deposit limit and gamble responsibly if you want this to have a positive effect on your bank balance. Online casinos can be very lucrative so make sure to give it a try this month to boost your bank balance.

Meal Planning

One of the biggest reasons why people struggle to get from paycheck to paycheck is a lack of meal planning. If you find that a lot of the food, you buy goes to waste then you are not effectively using your money. Think about planning your meals in advance and take a shopping list with you to the supermarket. This will help to make sure that you are only buying what you need, and you’ll be less likely to have a takeaway and spend a lot of cash. Try this out this month if you want to boost your bank balance and save some cash.

Become A Tutor

Do you have a skill in a certain area that would benefit others? Consider trying out some tutoring in your local area to get a little extra cash this month. You could teach a high school student some math or English or even teach a neighbour how to play an instrument. There are so many different things you can tutor others on, and it can be quite a good way of making some money. Have a think about what your skills include and consider advertising yourself as a tutor to boost your bank account this month.

Online Survey

If none of our ideas so far appeal to you then why not try out participating in some online surveys? Many companies will pay you to complete a survey and although it will only be a small payment, you can boost your bank account over time. Take a look online at some of the things you can complete a survey on - you might even find some that will involve you testing a product for free. This can be a really effective way of getting some extra cash so make sure to try it out today.

Negotiate With Utilities

When you are running a home, you have a lot of different bills to pay and these can put a huge dent in your paycheck before it even reaches your account. This is why you need to think about negotiating with your energy, phone and internet suppliers. These companies expect people to phone up and threaten to cancel their contracts and they have the power to reduce your bills at a minute’s notice. Consider giving them a call and seeing if they can reduce your bill at all – you might be surprised at how much of a difference this can make to your monthly bank balance.

Try Freelancing

Our final idea for improving how much cash you have this month is to try out freelancing. Some people think that freelancing is only for those who are able to write long articles, but this is not always the case. There are many different companies who need small amounts of work to be done in a short space of time and they are willing to pay a reasonable amount of money for it. Take a look at some of the freelancing sites available and see if any of the jobs match your skills. This will boost your bank account by a lot and help you get through the next month with ease.

Final Verdict

Overall, there are many different ways that you can boost your bank balance this month. Think about trying out some of our ideas like playing at an online casino or negotiating with your energy suppliers. We also recommend selling any unwanted items on eBay or at a car boot sale and freelancing if you have some skills in an area.

Make sure to take on board all of the tips that we have given you in this article and you should be able to have a little more cash to spend next month. You are not alone in the post-Christmas cash struggle so get started now and see how much more cash you can make.
