Let's post our ways to earn a few extra bucks---legally, of course!


I'll start:


work-at-home jobs, go to wahm.com for many suggestions


garage sales


online flea markets


sell stuff on Ebay


sell/pawn jewelry


sell used but good quality designer clothes, purses, etc


check unclaimed property sites We recently found about $600 in unclaimed funds!


sell old eyeglasses frames on Ebay


Look around the house for stuff you can take back to the store, my DS recently moved and left a bunch of AXE products, unopened, bought from Walmart. Since I didn't have a receipt, I got a cash card, good for about $40, filled up with gas!

Sell a really bad product in a pyramid scheme for a lot of money. Lots of them out there.

Post 5-10 times a day of your "friends" Facebook pages and in status updates. Make sure they know how awesome this new "Anti-aging Skin Care!" product can be. Tell them your makeup won't allow them to be ugly anymore!

You'll make a few hundred bucks a month, someone above you makes way more.

Profit.

Dog walking. Alot of people out there without the time to take their pets to the dog park. Easy way to make $100 a day baby sitting a few dogs for a couple of hours.

I have a full time "regular desk job" but lately I've implemented two other sources of income:

Selling crochet on Etsy (more of a hobby~ 1K per year) but I'm expanding this into a rental business w/ a professional website
Becoming a landlord

I'm all about side-money making, and I wish there were more hours in the day.
