Grocery Collection Service

But all the supermarkets do this themselves you are thinking. Ah - maybe not. Marks and Spencer have recently stopped their home delivery service an a good number of people, especially the elderly will be missing this greatly. Talk to people in your neighbourhood and find out who is missing out and offer to help out by collecting their shopping for them. They will be more than happy to pay you for this service. Charge mileage or an hourly rate, be fair with it and people will come back week after week.

Don't just leave it at Marks and Spencer. There will be plenty other businesses in your area that don't deliver and your neighbours would be glad of the help.

Help out friends and get paid

Many people are suffering from the credit crunch and are hanging onto their jobs for dear life. They maybe don't have so much time to spend at home any more and chores and gardening are falling behind.

If you have the time and the skills, why not offer to help them with their cleaning, gardening, decorating, etc and get paid for it. Around £10 per hour is what people are charging for this kind of service. Just make sure you do a good job - you don't want to lose a friend - and a customer!
