The first thing that you can do if you are finding yourself a shot short on cash this Christmas is to consider getting a loan. There are a lot of different type of loans out there, so it helps to know who to approach with your request.

First, there are the payday loans. These are designed to be a short injection of cash to tide you over until your next payday. The interest on them is often high, and they aren't practical if you want to be borrowing in the longer term.

It could be better to look for companies that run as personal loans direct lender instead. This means that you can borrow for a longer amount of time and that they will fund your loan. Or there is always the possibility of a bank loan, be but aware that they can be quite strict on asking what the loan is for.

Craft Fairs

If you don't want to borrow any money, how about you try and make some instead? A great way to do this around Christmas time is to sell some homemade items at a craft fair. You can sell anything really that you enjoy making, although Christmas themed goods do better at this time of year.

Remember too that some States have specific laws about selling food from your kitchen as well as on toys. So it might be better to stick to items like Christmas cards and decorations which don't have these constraints.

Sell Your Items

Another way of raising some money for Christmas is to sell some items that you no longer have a use for. It can often be surprising what other people will buy. Well, they say that one's man's trash is another's treasure!

You can put your items on auction sites. But try the ‘buy it now’ facility if you are in a hurry. Or you can take any old antiques to an auction where the live bidding is likely to help increase the price.pexels-photo-168927.jpeg


You can even sell old gift cards that you don't use now, online. Or you can take valuable items like electronics and jewelry such as ring and watches to a pawn shop. They will give you a cash advance there and then. But you also have the opportunity of buying the item back later on,  if you can't bare to part with it.
