Hi There,
.
I think as you say, if you want to make a change you are going to have to work for it, I would start by looking around your home and see what you could sell at maybe a carboot sale, that would give you a small amount of cash that maybe you could start too use to sell things on ebay, I would have a look around on ebay at what's selling, then look to buy those items cheaply maybe at pound stores and then sell them on with a profit, it would be small to start with and maybe slow going but over time you may be able to build up enough money to maintain replacing stock and give you some spare cash.
.
Another option is too not relax on your week off, and see if you could find some temp work to do maybe a couple of days during your week off.

Do you have any hobbies or interests that could get you a small income, eg arts and crafts?

Morning,
.
You could also wander around charity shops and see if some items in there could be sold on ebay for a profit, and car boot sales are also a good place to grab bargains that could sell for higher amounts online.

A ship made of lolly sticks........sounds interesting, especially eating the lolly's first Lol

See, with that sort of creativity, you might be able to produce items you can sell, where all it's cost you is time.

Just a thought, if you drive to work would getting a cheap bike be possible? That way you could save on fuel, maintenance etc. You would also get the health benefits and potentially have a new hobby.

Ebay is really good for earning some extra cash.
I was running a ebay store up until recently, just going through a break up....so had to sell a lot of my stock.
But I go round car boots buying dvd ,cd etc...and then sell them on...always start the price at what you brought it for, so if it sells you at least get your money back. ...also include listing fees, packing costs...etc.
...if you need any advice on ebay, drop me a message, I have over 7000+ sales.

And if you sell things on ebay that interest you.
.then it also becomes like a hobby, which makes you some cash....
You like models, so maybe look for model kits etc...
