What kind of things have you done to earn some extra cash?
Online surveys? Donating plasma? Participate in medical studies?
Whether it was earning extra cash to put towards the wedding or to put yourself through school let me know!
I used to recycle cans and old batteries but didn’t make much!

@ValerieBee03: I picked up some freelance proofreading, and that’s been helping a lot! It sucks when I have to work full-time on a weekend to meet a deadline but the extra $$ has been a huge help 🙂
I started filling out online surveys but I got screened out of so many that they weren’t worth the time (sometimes 1.5+ hours and I wouldn’t actually get to take a single full survey, which meant no money).

@BotticelliLove: Yeah! I hardly qualified for any either… I have like $7 sitting in an “account somewhere that I can’t draw from until it reaches $50 lol so that’s not going to happen.

Around the holiday season I work retail for a few extra bucks.

Work at home jobs doing customer service, recycling, gigs from craigslist like marketing campaigns, and that’s it.

I’ve taught French to adults, worked in retail (omg, nothing like that makes me hate people more), worked as a hostess at a restaurant (I want to weep when I remember what I went through!), and I worked at a call center make “warm” calls in 3 languages – honestly, warm leads and cold leads don’t make much difference and it sucks all the same.
I’m thinking of tutoring again, except French and English aren’t as in demand as, say, math…but I’ll just post some ads up and see what happens! There’s nothing to lose, and anything that helps me move out sooner helps. 🙂

- Wedding: March 2015 - The Lodge at Mackenzie Place
Dog sitting! It’s super fun! Plus, they usually have cable (I do not) so I can catch up on all my trashy tv shows…Real Housewives anyone?! LOL

@ValerieBee03: I have done quite a lot other than my desk job
taught paleo diet classes and yoga
taught a crochet class at hobbt lobby
and some dog training stuff 🙂
Once I moved though and started school out here I have been doing less than occasional babysitting 🙁

I set up an Etsy shop to make a few extra bucks. It did pretty well when I was putting effort into it, but it got a bit overwhelming after awhile because of all the special requests. I made about $800 over the course of a year, but that doesn’t count what i was dumping into it for materials.
I’ve also gotten second jobs at craft stores, which was fun…but being around all the craft supplies = me blowing my paychecks on craft supplies!

I’ve done etsy in the past but it didn’t exactly pay the bills to the least! Maybe if I had a more expensive product in my store.
I plan to start my own consulting business doing graphic design and photography. I have experience in both. I have health problems, so finding something part time where I can set my own schedule (preferably from home, or only have to travel every once in awhile) is best for me. I reccommend craft fairs if folks are into crafts. That was my most lucrative in terms of craft land.

Selling things on ebay, focus groups, dog walking & I sing so I take a lot of side gigs doing that. I don’t have much energy for all of that anymore though!!!
