making money from the home and saving money

thinking of ways to earn some extra money from the home
you,d be surprised how much you can earn from clothes,toys,curtains,bedspreads,furniture that your children,you or hubby don,t wear or use anymore..
ebay is ok as you get to list 20 items for free each month,but you will still have to pay a sellers fee once each item is sold,then a paypal fee on top if this is your chosen paying method,so it does tend to add up.
shpock is a relatively new site/app (for iphone and android) it works like a car boot sale,you can haggle the prices,it shows you goods up fro sale within a mile of where you live,plus further afield depending how far you want to travel .
it costs nothing to list your items,or sell them,plus you can keep an eye out for any messages or deals on your phone

Another good way to sell any unwanted items is gumtree this is also free to list and free to sell,this is also another one that you can sell locally around your area.
Any old cds,dvds or games you want to sell try

simple things like eco balls which replace your washing liquid,no need for conditioner and last up to 1000 washes giving you a huge saving between £80-£200 (i pay £2 for 25 washes colour washing liquid and it works out at a saving of £80 just on the washing liquid if i also take off the conditioner it,s a further £78 saved per 1000 washes)
shopping for food always do a list,try sticking to the list and see how much you save from previous food shopping,i love the sneaky ways supermarkets dress up their shelves to entice you to buy what you really dont need.
a good idea to try before you go shopping is to log into my supermarket online they will compare your shopping with the top 4 supermarkets and will tell you which one is offering the best deal
