With the ever-increasing costs involved with childcare and the cost of living, many of us parents out there are unfortunately struggling to make ends meet.

This is your opportunity to get online and earn some quick cash.

The surplus of old baby and toddler clothes you amass over the years are a potential goldmine for you. Advertise them online or on auction sites as there will be many eager new parents out there equally looking to make savings. You can also take the hassle out of the shipping by using specialist firms like TNT Direct who manage any worldwide deliveries you may have. This way you know your package will safely reach its destination.
Have a Tech and Media Amnesty
In a similar vein to the previous method, there are companies who will buy your old devices, tech, CDs and DVDs. Rather than having them lying unused in your cupboards or taking up valuable space in your home, copy their data on to a hard drive or a storage server then simply post them off. Usually, you receive a valuation first and then receive your payment once the company has checked and confirmed your delivered items.
So there you have it, three easy ways to make money from home and help make your finances look a little bit healthier.
