    if you are in trouble for money, for car insurance etc. don't be afraid to sell items that you own and on use e.g. old games, books, electronics etc.
    Also, do small jobs for your parents or neighbours for money e.g. dog walking and mowing the lawn.
    this seems all like small money, but it sure adds up. use your spare time widely, do everything for a profit and be confident with the people you sell to. Good Luck

    another few are
    scrap copper/brass/lead/aluminium/stainless steel collecting- it won't be great money but you might if you determined and have luck on your side get £50 for a month or two of hunting
    buy investment material it takes a little bit of care to learn the market pattern but say silver you can buy an ounce for £15 and sell for £30 then boom double your money just by watching the markets
    furniture restoration just look at a cheap furniture resale place and find a little end/coffee table and it just needs sanding, a coat of varnish or paint
    i got a solid mahogany end table for £10 and just gave it the simple sand, polish and varnish job it cost about £30 and i flipped it to a local antique dealer for £200 and he sold it for £450
