People have been advised by an expert that recycling mobile phones is one way to overcome a lack of cash at any particular moment.
Ed Bowsher, head of consumer finance at lovemoney.com, explained there is no need for Britons to go without money.
He said there are plenty of ways to top up an income and went on to suggest activities such as dog walking, which can be worth about £10 an hour.
The industry chief then identified taking cash for mobiles as another way to pick up extra finance, noting individuals may do "particularly well" out of this.
It could be worth clearing a bedroom out or checking through cupboards in a bid to find any old mobiles that could be sold for money, with every model – no matter its age and design – likely to be worth something.
According to recently research by Scottish Widows, money is still the top taboo subject among Britons.
