Here's 5 savvy ways to make up to £2,350 before Christmas | The Sun

AS summer starts to fade, it won’t be long before Christmas creeps up on us.

Preparing your finances for the festive season — this year in particular — may feel daunting.

But here are some savvy ways to make up to £2,350 between now and December 25 . . . 

CASH IN ON A CLEAR OUT: Selling unwanted items from around the house could make you more than £1,000, according to eBay expert Clare Seal. Think laptops, pushchairs, musical instruments and gardening tools.

Facebook Marketplace and the Nextdoor app are also good for selling to people who live locally — and you don’t have to pay to list items. You can earn up to £1,000 a year from selling items without having to pay tax.

FLOG YOUR OLD PHONE: Dial up some extra cash from your old mobile. Of course, how much you get will depend on the make and the model as well as the condition it’s in.

A 64GB iPhone 8 Plus in good condition could be worth £200 — and newer models even more.

GET A SIDE HUSTLE: If you fancy yourself as a bit of a star, you could make around £50 a day by working as an extra in adverts or TV shows.

Land yourself a few jobs over the countdown to Christmas and you could pocket £150.

WALK IN THE PARK: Dog walkers can earn £8-10 an hour. Or you can make cash by popping in to feed a cat or even a hamster.
