Time is something that many of us claim we don't have much of. But in reality, are we just wasting it? It can be very easy to get into a cycle of going to work, coming home, cooking dinner, playing with the kids and then going to bed - only to do it all again the next day. There's nothing wrong with this of course, but are you utilising every moment of your day in the best way possible? If you are someone who is, for example, in need of a little bit of extra money (aren't we all!), then you could be wasting valuable money making opportunities for every bit of downtime you take. Your first reaction to this might be that when you already work, the last thing you want to be doing is taking on yet more jobs - everyone deserves some free time, right? But what you may not know is that there are many ways you can make a bit of extra dollar right from the comfort of your home, with minimal impact on your everyday life. Fancy a little bit of extra cash? Here are the top money-making methods that don't even require you to leave the house!

Survey websites

You may have heard about many people taking part in online surveys in exchange for money.

But to help you avoid getting scammed, www.surveyssay.com reviewed quickreward and other sites so you can make an informed decision about which surveys to sign up to.

Selling your photos

Are you a dab hand with a camera? If your hobby is photography, it might be time to capitalize on this. while simultaneously freeing up space on your hard drive! You can offer your images to websites such as Flickr or Shutterstock, where they will be used as stock images available to the public. When one of these web hosts sells one of your images, you end up with a cut. Pretty easy, huh?

Hire out your belongings

Another super easy way to make some extra cash to rent out some of your belongings on a temporary basis. Sites like rentmyitems.com allow you to offer some of your possessions to people in your area who need them, whether they want a sound system for a party they're hosting, or if they just need a really good lawnmower! Renting through a site like this also means that your items are protected, so you don't have to worry about theft.
