When I was moving into our new house and needed extra money, I went through my clothes and handbags and realized I had quite a few things that were in good condition (some even still had tags) that I wasn’t going to use/wear.  I listed stuff on ebay (initial cost to list w/ pics was around $1.50) and got a pretty good amount of money!

Other than that, you could always offer to pet-sit for your friends and neighbors when they go away.  They’ll appreciate it and you can get some extra spending money.

Would you be open to independent sales?  Some examples would be Avon, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, etc.  I sell Silpada, which is sterling silver jewelry and I can make money when I need to by hosting parties.  I don’t really push it too hard so I don’t make much, but there’s the potential to earn as much or as little as you want.

start cutting coupons. Check out hip2save.com for pointers. I’ve already saved over $100 in a week and a half.

I just turned in a jar full of change we have collected… It amounted to over $750!  Change can make a difference 😉

i’m planning on selling some things, but I’m afriad of doing any kind of side business. I feel like I would end up losing money after paying taxes on the piddly $500 I made dog sitting.

OK, so I was looking for the same thing when I get home from work I go online or just sit around and listen to music so I found this thing called ChaCha where you answer people’s questions online.  I thought it was a scam but then a friend said she was doing it and she was making money.  So I mean it depends on exactly how much time you have how much money you can make but here is a link if you are interested.

@MSomar: awesome! I have a jar of change that has been filling up since I moved into my apartment 4 years ago… It has now spilled over into 2 other small change jars… I wonder how much I have?

I sell a lot of my stuff through consignment- its amazing what people by!  The chain I sell through is called Second Time Around (www.secondtimearound.net), and you can literally mail them a box of clothes, shoes, purses, jewelry, and you can track online what sells, and then they cut you a check every three months!  I find it easier than ebay because I am too lazy to write descriptions 🙂

@MsBrewer: I’ve sold over a thousand items on ebay, so PM me if you want tips.  It is easy but there is a skill involved.  But there are selling tutorials, etc. on ebay if you want to check them out for yourself. Good luck and have fun!

P.S. there’s always Craigslist, if no one else has mentioned it already.

First time posting…

I’m planning to do promotion work. It pays well; about $17-20/hr, and the shifts are flexible – usually weekends. It’s contract work, so you will be taxed on the income at the end of the year. Check Craigslist.
