Another money making thread

And another

And there's a billizon threads on the 2nd page of this forum that range from plazma donating to mystery shopping.


Quickest would be selling plazma (not much $$ and not fun), selling stuff you own, yardwork (its getting warm now), and temp work.

My dad alwasy says the only easy money is drugs and gambling.

Also, if you have one in your city, check craigslist. It can be very useful for quick jobs.

my mum hired me as her housekeeper the other day... only really works if you still live with (or near) your parents and they are willing to pay you to do the house work

We just took a look at our bookshelf and started selling all our old school books and random books that we don't care about on Amazon. Made almost $1000 in 2 weeks! It's way easy and great cash!

Check out this thread as well. I've been a wildland firefighter for going on 8 summers now and it's a great lifestyle if you love to travel and it makes decent cash. No degree required...of course that didn't stop me from dropping 25 grand on one, now did it?
