Topping Up The Money Pot

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Even with the best of intentions, sometimes life can kick you in the butt. You check your account and see a nice round 0.10, and you have groceries to buy, a flat tyre, the roof is leaking, and it’s just a bit too much. 

There are a few things you can do to help the situation - and have backups.


Check online to see if you can get a deal for swapping your bank account. Sure, the cash won’t be in for a week or more, but you know it’s coming. The other thing you can check is the interest rate or any other special offers. Read the terms and conditions ahead of making the switch to make sure you can cash out. On the subject of money, you can use online installment loans to bridge small gaps too. 


Being as you have a flat tyre anyway, this might be a great excuse to spend the day taking surveys. There are many survey sites that offer between $1-$3+ per completed survey, and many don’t last too long either. Here are some options:

There are many other options, of course, but these are a great place to start. People make a reasonable side income per week when signing up to multiple survey suppliers. 

Change Your Search Engine

Did you know that you can change your search engine to benefit you? Yes. There are a few options, but if you are signing up or are signed up to Swagbucks, then it is a great option. You can use it just like you’d use Google, except you earn for every relative search you do. 100 Swagbucks is a dollar or more too. 

Watch TV

Yeah, this one is a little bit amazing. You can watch TV or read emails and InboxDollars will pay you to do it. You have to answer a few questions, and there is a $5 sign up bonus too. It is a cash-only system, so you won’t end up with vouchers for somewhere you never go. 


If you already do much of the things above, start really pushing your referral codes. You can find forums that you can post referral codes on, as well as using your social media to share too. The more people that sign up, the more cash you’re about to make. 

Fast Sell

Scoot around the house and look for things that you don’t need or want and sling them on the Facebook market for a quick sale. Share it on your normal status, too, and you are more likely to get a few fast buyers. 

Micro Jobs

If you have some time, and a little bit of skill, you can earn between $3-$100+ taking on small jobs. Here are a few places you can check out:

  • MTurk - Amazon
  • Swagbucks
  • Fiverr
  • Gigwalk
  • TaskRabbit

Spend a few hours checking all of these each day, and you’ll always have a back-up pot of cash in the future.
