Here's a few I've done and/or heard of to make extra cash;
-Hair design schools; In Seattle, there is/was a salon where they pay you to cut your hair for students to practice hair design. I figure other salon
schools in cities offer this too. Con; due to hair growth they may not need you very often
-Secret shoppers; inspect a store/ shop by buying an item for example and you will be paid a certain amount of money-$10 to 15.00 on average per store
and reimbursed on purchases. Set your own schedules when they are e-mailed to you, of different locations and different assignments. Con; the main
con is beware of companies that will con you. Don't apply to ones that ask you to buy a listing, or offer a sign on bonus($500.00 free today!) that
seems sketchy because it is. Also, some don't reimburse you for gas millage, that might limit jobs, unless you take a trip that has many
-Website/blogs; Google and other companies will pay you to have ads on your website/blog. Even hosting a site to sell items(as an alt or addition to
an Ebay account) . Registering a .com, costs yearly and is usually cheap. Limited services and bites website hosts are free as are blogs. Cons;
Maleware scares that can be passed from certain ads, you don't want those on your site or near your customers! Also, having the right website that
people will visit(entertainment news, music, etc). You can find a pre designed layout choice for a site if unfamiliar or don't care to have your own
site design. If you're new to graphic design/programming, you can always take a cheap course-depending on what you can afford-(learn Photoshop for
ex., or another design program-photoshop is expensive) or taken an online course.
As a Vet Tech I offer to cut pets nails, bathe them., give shots(vaccines-non rabies), etc., for family and friends. This as an example for if you
have a trade skill as such offer it for tips.
Mentioned in Other Posts;
-Garage sale items; don't have time for a garage sale? List the items on Ebay, CL, Newspaper,etc.,.
Cons; make take some time to sell.
-Produce and sell item/s on Ebay, CL, etc.. Cons; have to come up with something useful in today's market/something that will sell.
-Handyman/woman;post ads around have people call for your service(lawn, painting, car repair cleaning, etc.)
cons; seems like this one is pretty favored, so you have competition with others for work.
-Plasma bank donation; $80.00 in some banks for new members signing in for the first two donations, and it helps people in need! An average of $60.00
a week helps most anyone these days. The con is; they can be picky about medical conditions, tattoos and piercings.
-Recycling pays; Collect cans, metals, other.
Cons; you need a lot to collect decent money.
