There’s no doubt that money will always be tight for some, most of the time. There's simply not enough spare cash to do everything we want to to do to our house, for hobbies or to enjoy ourselves. This is especially true in a very uncertain financial climate.

To compensate for rising living costs and stagnant wages, many people are opting to turn their hobbies into money-making ventures. But can you really make money from a hobby?
