I work a lot now, so don’t have time for this anymore, but I used to sell books on Amazon, tutor, and babysit.  

Future Mother-In-Law is excellent at making extra $$. She does intense couponing and buys nonperishable goods virtually free and resells them in yard sales. She also spends a couple of hours a day entering giveaways. She wins a ton of stuff and then either uses, returns for $$, or resells.

I’m trying to convince Fiance to have a garage sale after our shower. I know ettiquitte wise it might be poo-poo, but we were both independent adults before we moved in together, so we have a lot of doubles of things already. After the shower, we’ll have a ton of extra stuff and we have a really small house! So part of it is a money maker, the other is to get organized before the wedding so when we come back from our honeymoon, we come back to a nice clean, organized house!

If you are in a big enough city you can try looking for focus groups.

I work a part time from home doing data entry at nights and on weekends. I make an extra grand and only work 25 hours. I’m an independent cosultant. Love it!

I am a personal trainer in the evenings – I just have a few clients but the extra savings is worth it!

Ugh, I was bartending for awhile.  It was intense though, I stopped before winter.  I was working 65 hour weeks for over a year!  I wish I had a better idea to give.

I have a babysitting gig I kept after graduating from my Masters program.  Because I have been working with the family for a few years they trust me and treat me very well.  My full time job pays the bills and savings, but the babysitting money is my “fun” money.  I put it towards the wedding, art classes, dinners out.  It really makes a difference.

I’m teaching spinning and Pilates at my local Y. For 45 minutes, I earn $12.50 and get a good workout. I’ve only been getting paid for the last 2 months (before that I was in training) and have earned over $200 for 3-4 classes per week. It’s not a lot, but it has given me a little extra spending money to treat myself and FH.

I am a Silpada Designs Rep (awesome sterling silver jewelry). Good way to earn some extra spending cash. If you’re interested, let me know.

I work for ChaCha!  It’s a service that sends answers to people’s cell phones for any question they ask.  It doesn’t pay much, but it’s fun and you can do it in your pajamas sitting on your couch if you want.

I work fulltime as a nanny, but often bartend and waitress at a local theatre.  I can’t do it all the time, otherwise I’d collaspe from exhaustion, but it’s a nice way for me to earn some extra cash.
