Need Money!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hey it's getting close to Christmas and I need a little extra cash to buy presents. Do you know of any quick jobs that I don't need to be trained or pay for things that I could do? I mostly would like to be a paid editor or typist, but anything that could get me some money would be helpful. So if you know of any sites or have any ideas please tell me. I can use all the help I can get. Thanks in advance. ~jess

    Well I could have a job for you and could pocket you 25quid... The only thing is you will get hairs in your mouth and a sticky face at the end of it. :hyper: :p

    Edited to say this was suppose to be a joke... Not something for thesite pruners to cry about! ;)

    You are actually vile.

    If all else fails you could use ebay and sell some of your junk to make a bob or two.

    I am currently working to get 100 quid for christmas presents. Just note that I got this thanks to sources. :rolleyes:

    I'm blank except applying for small jobs or cutting your neighbour's lawn.

    No, only once.

    Mind, he'd know about getting dodgy money. Found ten grand in a suitcase in a field, dontchaknow.

    As for getting a temp job, try the Royal Mail or a shop. RM are quite good for making quick brainless money.

    Shops are dying for christmas temps. One inductiond day and you're thrown in at the deep end. Of course if you are a full time temp you will make a few quid depending on the store.

    Either that or bar work is the next option

    After that I guess you'll just have to go with *MadinthenuT*'s offer :razz:

    I relax, chill out and spend time with my family. Except my Christmas vacation is about 6 weeks or so long, so I have a bit more time.

    But I start my present buying early, so I have enough of my loan left :p

    Last year I worked in term-time too, which helped, but this year I am a lady of leisure.
