Welcome to the “Make Money, Save Money” Newsletter.

Wow, so we’ve had the EU Referendum, we voted Out!

Now presents an interesting time when it comes to the stock market.

This could be a phenomenal buying opportunity, or will it be the tip of the iceberg?

Make Money

Baby Sitter

Everybody needs some time off, especially parents.

Offer your services to Family and Friends first to build up confidence and referrals.

Grow plants

Do you have a green thumb, and some space to grow plants?

Then you could grow plants for sale.

Think vegetables; Tomato, Bean or more adventurous; Alvera or Venus flytrap.

You could sell them on eBay, at a car boot, local groups or even outside your home.

Car boot Sale

You could bag yourself a bargain at the car boot sales.

If you know a thing or two about china plates, tools or anything vintage, then you could bag yourself a bargain.
Even if you don’t, armed with eBay app you could look up the value of second hand items, with a view to reselling.
(Check auction prices, as “Buy it now” prices can be misleading and not a true reflection what people are paying).

Make sure you aim for a profit margin of at least 100%, and don’t forget to take into account how much an item would cost to post.

Save Money

Kindle Unlimited

My wife reads a lot of books every month and recently she has come across Kindle Unlimited.

Kindle Unlimited allows you to read an unlimited number of books every month.

It also has the added benefit of the books not taking up space in our house.

Buy from farmers market

When I buy vegetables from supermarkets, they seem to go off quicker the cheaper they are.

Personally, I’ve found vegetables from Farmers Markets to be better tasting and cheaper than the supermarket.

The main point to remember is that you are talking to the people that actually produced the food.
You can find out how it was produced.

Above all if you think you should pay less, then you ask for a deal.

Save your receipts

Why should you save your receipts?

Its a lot easier to get a replacement or refund if you have to your receipts to hand.
(it’s still possible without but a lot harder, but I’ll save that for another time).

As a rule of thumb, save all receipts for a minimum of 2 weeks, and big purchases for 2 years.

Now if any thing breaks before its time, it’ll be easy to take it back to the shop for a replacement.

As an added bonus you can now prove that you owned the item if you need to claim on insurance.

These suggestions won’t be applicable to everyone, but try to work out how they could be adapted for you.

Hopefully, these suggestions give you money ideas!

That’s it for this newsletter. See you next time!

If you have any suggestions or questions then drop me a reply to this email.
