Re: Anyone have ideas on how to make extra income

How about yard sales and ebay?  I admit, I have a love-hate relationship with ebay, but at the end of the day, it makes me money.  It started with clearing out my husband's grandparent's house but has escalated from there.  There are so many things that I've sold that I would have given away in the past.  I've made 6k on ebay from July '11 - July '12 and probably a couple thousand more in yard sales.  Most of the yard sale stuff I've sold isn't stuff that was even mine.  Check craigslist and freecycle for freebies and then sell them.  My husband laughs at me for doing it, but I don't work so this is my way of feeling like I'm contributing. 

Nice post!  Great advice.   Also I have found that if you can find a hobby or a passion you have and turn it into a part time job or way to make money it works out great!
