    Struggling financially and could use some advice on what else I could do to earn some extra money aside from my income. I've already got a sale thread and working on putting some things on ebay, so that's helping a little. But what do you do? Online services? Pick up dog poo? house sit? strip?

    Outside of your income, what else do you do to pull in some extra scratch? Just any tips or tricks would be most helpful. Thanks :)

    You could always sell crack on central or whatever that long road is in Albuqurque.

    1) Go to a Temp agency and fill out an application.

    2) Visit all the schools, supermarkets, and libraries and check the bulletin board.. there may be some odd jobs that you can find there.

    3) If all else fails, call your local art school and see if they need a nude model.

    ORIO..I make jewelry to sell, lots of people love it.. but unless you do something crafty I don't think I have other suggestions.. Could only suggest selling a "skill" you have..computer, carpentry, etc.

    For what it's worth, I checked out your sell thread to see if I could buy anything..sadly, nothing there for me :(

    Sperm bank? Sell blood plasma?

    I remember back in the late 90's when Gundam models became popular in the US; I got a job through a guy who sold Gundam models at a little stand in the mall. The money I made paid for my plastic crack :)

    Not quite the same as making extra cash, but look for simple things in your life that you can do to save money, such as whether you're buying your lunch at work, how much junk food / alcohol you're consuming and what kind, etc.

    Cut the cable bill. We saved $98 a month just by doing that. Also, fill up on gas only as needed. I never put more than $20. Go in with friends on buying in bulk at costco or Bjs. Don't eat out! Pizza hut is about 35-40 for 4 people! A 5lb bag of potatoes is $4. Steak and chicken For the week is like $20 and a bag of peas and carrots is like $1.89. Dinner is served!

    buy a painters pressure pot, smooth on mold making material and task casting material and start casting articulate transformers hands because me and others (lots of others) constantly need them


    Aside from that you can do odd jobs.

    Personally I'd go for the sell your body route. That's how I became a millionaire. Sadly I became addicted and just can't stop.

    Do you smoke? Quit. You'll save money in the long run, and improve your health.

    Do you rent videos / netflix / etc. ? See if your local library has dvds for borrowing, most nowadays do, and even if they don't, you can read books instead.

    Gym membership? Consider changing your workout routine to something more "natural" like running outside rather than on the treadmill, or analyze the feasibility of buying your own equipment as opposed to using theirs.

    Is there something you do in your spare time that could be spun into a business, or failing that, a part-time job you'd still enjoy?

    Do you have any marketable skills? Can you pick up a part time job at a retail store?
