If you wanted to make $5000 extra next month, and you couldn't just do more work at whatever you do professionally, what would you do?

Looking for creative ideas...I'm serious so please keep it clean so that this thread doesn't get banned.

I heard the local "homeless" man at the freeway intersection of your choice makes better money than the local McDonald's worker.

That's probably true but I was hoping for some suggestions of things the average person would actually do.

$5000 EXTRA?! Hell, if I made that much in a month, I'd be set.

I probably shouldn't have said "extra." I am interested in how people would earn $5000 in any way other than their professional jobs.

If it would make it easier if I lessened the amount, let's say $2500.

IDK, but I wouldn't sell stupid pills, crazy juice, retarded powder, etc. to make extra money.

Consulting projects /gigs in weekends / after hours depending on your skill set and network as well.
Before I had my kids I was able to bring in 30-40K just to be able to maintain some of my expensive hobbies / play money. Now with the kids I still bring in about 20K but I am turning down a lot of work.

I'd probably start a landscaping business. Pass out some flyers and promise a reasonable price and you'd have more than enough business to keep you busy 8 hours a day. Mow and Edge both yard for $20 and you'd be making yourself $150+ a day (tax free)
