way's to make extra cash

Anyone have any good ideas on how to make some extra cash? Anything from freelance writing to whatever you can think of/ done. I make decent money at my job but I would like to make some extra cash for the Jeep.

Work 60 to 80 hours a week like I do. I work a full 40 hours a week at a body shop. Then 20 to 40 extra hours everyweek at a bar/resturant bartending and helping in the kitchen. Its stressfull working that much, but if you need the money...

I usually work 40 hours then a few overtime hours a week at work but I can only take so much. I'm an exellent cook and could work at a restaurant but I would have to be in the Kitchen I don't deal well with customers. I work a lot on saturday at my current job for overtime so I don't know how the whole weekend job thing will go. I would love to work part time at the 4x4 center here wrenching but I don't have any experience, but it's something I love to do.

Ok, first thing you've gotta do is decide you want to do this and stop coming up with "but I can't" stuff. Not being rude, just saying.

I had a college professor for a personal finance course. 1st day he walked in and told us the course was about making money, nothing else. He said that if anyone there thought they'd get ahead in life by working 40 hours a week, they needed to leave right then and drop the course because they had the wrong attitude to be successful and they would fail the class.

As a business owner, I can tell you he was 100% correct.

Again, not being rude to you, just giving you some food for thought.

If you don't mind getting dirty go scraping. Metals are up right now and some people make good cash. If I had the time and a truck I would be out on the night before trash day myself. It is easy money. One girl I know has a friend that does that for his only income and makes decent money.

I'd LOVE to be the president of one of these government subsidized banks or trusts. Sit back in my mahogany paneld office with fine artwork on the walls counting my millions.......But hell then there's the reality of working for a living.

Get off your arse and go make it happen!

Gather up a bunch of stuff you don't use anymore and put it up on ebay. Then you can go on craigslist and try to find good deals on stuff and flip it on ebay.

Metal prices suck around me now stuff like copper or aluminum is pretty high but metal is just a waist of time

When both my kids needed braces I needed more money so I started a lawn cutting business. Made up some fliers and stuck them in doors around the neighborhood. Started with 2 customers and soon had about twenty - all senior citizens. Be reasonable in your price and take cash.

I have always done some construction on the side and weekends, it pays well but will wear you out.
