Brainstorm: How to Make More $$

January 12th, 2007 at 08:31 pm

How can I find new income streams for my $20 Challenge?

What I'm already doing:
** Perusing the online classifieds for the occasional odd job, like leaf raking, pet sitting
** Selling on Half.com / Ebay / Local Classifieds / Plato's Closet Used Clothing
** Registered in a database of local college aged (err, and slightly older than college aged) babysitters [I'm actually meeting my first family on Wednesday for a regular Saturday night job]

Things I'm contemplating (in descending order of likelihood):
** Seek out other local consignment stores to sell clothes
** Bring stuff to my mom's garage sale this Spring (I don't have enough for my own)
** Teach nutrition classes at the YMCA (I'm already on their list)
** Keep an eye open for research studies I'd qualify for
** Ask for a raise in my Personal Chef job
** Lend through Prosper.com

What I could do, but I'm not going to (I'm looking to save money / make money, but I'm not in personal debt. If I had personal debt, I might re-evaluate)
** Get a formal part-time job with regular hours
** Donate plasma (I'm already a regular blood donor with the Red Cross)
** Expand my Personal Chef clients (one family is exhausting enough!)

Any more suggestions??

    My sister just got a paper route and she loves it. She had one as a kid like twenty years ago but recent circumstances have compelled her to get a job where she can work on her own, work a minimum number of hours while still making decent money and most importantly keep her baby with her. Now she drives a route at 4am with baby by her side and she says its great. Just an idea....

    Have private cooking classes at your home - three or four or five or six people (how ever many YOU and your kitchen can accomodate.)

    Setting up a gourmet kitchen for clients - recently saw this in a Beaver/Vail magazine. A company was formed that will come in and set up a kitchen with everything needed to make it a gourmet setup - someone hands you a check, you do the shopping and unpacking - from food to appliances and cookingwares.

    Make your own private label gourmet product and hustle it on ebay and locally. Get w/the extension agent in your area and see if they can put you in contact with others who are selling home crafted food products thru local co-ops, etc.
