If you want free money today, then there are some ways which you can get it. It is a good idea to start by thinking about how you can get the money. You may have things that you could consider selling, you might want to do some work of some sort or possibly earn some money online. It may be that you do not mind how you get the money but that you just will have a go at anything.
Selling things can be a great way of getting some extra money. This is because it can be quick, there are lots of places to sell and there are plenty of people who are looking to buy things. There are different places that you could sell, both online or offline. You could try auction websites, classifieds ads or social media groups online and try second hand, antique and vintage shops, auctions or garage, table top or car boot sales offline. There is no guarantee things will sell immediately or even sell at all, but they are all worth considering, depending on the type of item you have to sell. Do bear in mind that some places will charge for you to list things for sale, some will take commission if you sell and there will be charges if you use online transactions through companies such as Paypal as well. Beware with doing this though as it may mean that you have to be prepared to accept less money for the items if you are not going to wait to sell them. So think about how desperately you want the money.
If you have nothing to sell or do not want to sell things, then looking for work could be a good idea. Offline jobs that pay same day are rare, you will have to knock on doors and see if people want their cars washing or any chores doing and the chances of them trusting you enough to allow you to do it is small. You may be able to pick up temping work through agencies that will tend to pay at the end of the week rather than right away. If you currently work, you may be able to ask for some extra hours to get more money and you may be able to get an advance on your salary if you need money right away.
There are ways to earn online as well. There are freelance jobs, small jobs, questionnaires and lots of other sites where you can earn money. However, you need to bear in mind that some of these jobs will not pay you until you earn a certain amount and if that is a high amount, it may take you too long to earn it and therefore it may be wise to consider each of them carefully and decide which might be most likely to pay you quickly.
There are lots of options and it is up to you to choose the one which you think will suit you the best.
