There is another way too . You can have a fantastic outdoor adventure and make some really good money . There is a mussel native to this continent only and it makes a very sought after pearl . i have sold one pearl for almost 800.00 , i found it in the first two hours of hunting . The shell will bring 1.00 apiece , 2.oo per mussel . The Indian that showed me " how to pearl" got 30,000.00 for one pearl .

Most of these ideas are either more difficult than it looks like or not easy at all. Also depends on the size of town you live in. there is an easier way. Check out Send Out Cards:

i'm going to defend freelancing. This article is about making "extra money" not about having a second job. As a webdesigner with a full-time job, I have never seeked out freelancing jobs but I have had some. Mainly friends/acquaintances who come to me asking for a website. It is very informal; I've never made up a contract or anything like that. And it is a good way to make a few hundred bucks. Also, since it is something I am good at (i would never take on a job too challenging), It is relatively easy (can finish the site in a weekend). Now if you're talking about freelancing as an official job -- that is totally different.

Starting out as a freelancer is a lot of work. That SO doesn't belong on this list. And to the point that shydcgirl28 made - if I was going to either get rid of bridesmaids/formal dresses or tutor a child whose parent's couldn't afford the market rate I would do it as a volunteer.

Some of these don't seem that easy... freelancing. I wouldn't mind dog walking though.

I sell things on Ebay all the time for some extra cash and it works for me. Walking dogs is another good option, but the others aren't that easy.

I am going to tutor some children but not right away, maybe in a couple of months. It will help.

I thought about the cooking thing but there is a lot you have to put into it; mainly making sure no one sues you if there are any health side effects with what you make. Seemed like more trouble than it's worth it to me.

I'd rather donate my bridesmaid dresses to a charity that supports girls who can't afford to buy a formal for her prom or something.

I don't know how Freelancing made its way on a list of "EASY ways to make money." It's really not easy at all--it's basically like having another job with all of the accountability and none of the security.
