Get over your Love Island blues by using those extra hours to pocket some cash with these money saving tips

ARE you feeling the Love Island blues today? It has been a week since the hit ITV2 show came to an end — and 9pm suddenly seems a lot quieter.

But as the housemates used to say, it is what it is. So why not make use of those extra hours to pocket some extra dosh?

Try your hand at these not-so-muggy money saving tactics, perfect for that newly empty evening slot . . .

SURVEYS AND SAVE: Taking part in online surveys may take time before you can earn – but you now have six hours a week free!

You can leave the telly on in the background. Sites such as Swagbucks, Valued Opinions and MySurvey are popular ways to pile up the pounds.

Once you have amassed 1,000 Receipt Hog coins, you can swap them for PayPal credits and Amazon vouchers

RACK UP RECEIPTS: If you are anything like me and have a purse or wallet full of receipts, use your hour to sort through them and earn some dosh.

Receipt Hog gives you tokens for uploading photos of them. If you have spent less than £10, you earn five coins, £10 to £50 gets you ten coins, £50 to £100 is 15 coins and £100-plus earns you 20 coins.

Once you have amassed 1,000 coins, you can swap them for PayPal credits and Amazon vouchers. Easy.

SOCIAL SELLS: You won’t be the only one feeling bored come 9pm. Thousands of others will be scrolling through social media to occupy their time. So take advantage of this.

Have a clear-out. Start small, with a few drawers or cupboards at a time, and sell anything you don’t need on sites such as Facebook Marketplace and Depop. Pounds straight in the piggy bank.

Sell anything you don’t need on Depop!

ENTER SUN SAVERS CODES: Gather up your Sun newspapers and make sure you are banking those Savers codes.

Members can use their spare time to scan or type in their codes. If you haven’t joined yet, head to sunsavers.co.uk or download the free app and start by entering the code at the bottom of today’s page.

Once you have entered 28 codes (you don’t have to enter them all at once) you will get a FREE fiver to spend however you want.

Members — and newbies starting now — could have an extra £30 to put towards Christmas presents.
