How to supplement your income in this difficult financial climate.

With the cost-of-living crisis as it is, energy bills soaring and having to live through this very difficult financial climate, it’s no wonder more and more families are looking for ways to supplement their incomes.  More and more it seems that ordinary hardworking families are having to think about turning to charities to help them provide enough food for themselves and their children, with this in mind you can easily understand why making extra money every month is becoming a necessity for many households. Turning a hobby or craft skill into a lucrative money making scheme is one way of supplementing your income.  If you are naturally creative then you could choose to invest in some reasonable Crochet Blanket Kits purchased from a professional company such as woolcouturecompany.com/collections/blanket-and-cushions-crochet-kits and make several, hand-crafted, warm, colourful blankets or throws to sell at a local craft fair.

These bespoke kits come complete with everything you need to create a beautiful, stylish, crochet blanket, including crochet hooks, several balls of wool, an easy to follow pattern and a darning and tapestry needle if needed. Whatever you decide to make, before you take your products to your local craft fair, go and check out the competition there.  See if anyone else is selling similar items and what prices they are charging.  This way when you do go to the market you can set your prices accordingly so that you are selling at a competitive price. Always get to the market early to set up your stall and display your items attractively.

Bright colours and attractive displays will encourage shoppers to come to your stall, have lots of reusable bags to put their purchases in and make sure you have plenty of loose change to give to potential customers who purchase your items. Getting the whole family involved is a great way of having fun together as well as making extra money.  Having to work on the weekends will help teach younger children and teenagers the value of money and encourage them to work hard in the future. You could also give these blankets as Christmas or Birthday gifts saving you money on buying extra presents.  Everybody loves a handcrafted blanket or throw because they are a beautiful, warm, colourful and practical gift that will brighten up any bedroom.
