But what does one do when there’s no wriggle room left?
Express.co.uk spoke to money expert Jordan White who shared his knowledge on how to make money from home with very little effort.

The best thing about this idea is that it takes very little leg work.
The blogger said: “It’s also very easy once up and running so takes very little admin.”
People may not have a pressure washer but they might have items like a professional carpet cleaner or a trailer tent sitting at home that they could be making money out of.
Renting out a professional carpet cleaner to neighbours could earn people up to £32 a day.
It’s unlikely it would be hired out every single day but even if it was on hire for half the month that would be £480 in the bank!
Jordan added: “Money making ideas can provide a useful source of additional income, but be realistic and don’t get sucked into ‘get rich, quick’ schemes or ads.
“Little things here and there to earn a bit of cash on the side is the way to go.”
Jordan started his blog during lockdown, having always had a passion for finding a great deal.
The money blogger shared some tips for others looking to follow in his footsteps:
“I’ve found that by undercutting everybody else renting the same item in my area by even just 50p, it’s increased the number of rental requests I’ve had.
“In fact, I’ve had times where somebody has failed to cancel on time so I’ve still been paid for doing nothing.
“It’s also worth taking the time to leave reviews of people who’ve rented your items as it encourages them to do the same… my rentals have had a boost since I’ve picked up five star reviews from customers.
“From then on, it’s a pretty passive way of making extra cash. All you have to do is respond to any rental requests and arrange a time for pickup and return.
