I quit my job in 2013 to work for myself full-time, as my regular readers will know. I’m really proud that I have created a job that I can do, at home, working for myself. I’ve always wanted to be self-employed and now I am really am living my dream! I am earning a full-time income and have been able to have some wonderful holidays, and other treats, for my family over the last year in particular using the money that I have earned. I’m also debt free – which is a wonderful feeling, and feel the most financial aware that I have ever been.
I love being able to make money online! For me, personally, I think diversifying is the key to online success. I run this blog, and AllergyFreeDay and make money from those blogs in a variety of ways. Alongside that I like to keep up the online moneymaking too as this helps us with family holidays, nice days out and provides a boost to my income on quieter months too.
If you’re someone who doesn’t have as much time to dedicate as I do, or perhaps a lot of energy to dedicate to starting a website and creating content, there are still some fantastic ways that you can make money online.
Matched betting – If you’ve been around making money online for a long time you may have heard of this already. Basically you are using free bets an offers from bookmakers and casinos to make yourself a profit. I made made £15,000 in my first 4 months! Once I won £7,906.12 – there is screenshot proof too if you want to check. Long term I would say you can make a small, regular pot of money each month from this and the return on your time is much higher than paid surveys and the like. Although I do enjoy these too as I like to keep things diverse! Be sure to read my pros and cons of matched betting.
Paid surveys – I love getting paid for giving my opinion. There are SO many sites now and these are some of the ones I use and like:

You can also look at money saving as another fantastic way to increase your family budget. You can save money on your food shopping, (AD) save money on beauty products, save money on takeaways and save money on Tassimo pods just to get you started. I’m a big fan of meal planning (especially meal planning with mince) batch cooking and cooking one of slow cooker recipes to save money and time. Nothing beats avoiding the takeaway again with a nice dinner that you prepared first thing in the morning when you had the motivation!
