What do you do for extra money?

Can't be working overtime, or anything else about your job. Do you moonlight? Sell crap on Ebay?

I own rentals, but I don't think of it as extra money, I think of it as a retirement fund.

But I have a hankerin' to do something new. In fact, when I broke by goal of not buying another rental last year, I decided that I ought to try to do something else to make actual "extra" money this year.

Do you own a laundromat (I wouldn't mind that), or an arcade? Car Wash?

What do you do, and what do others that you know do?

I always say that I want to do things on the side to make some extra cash but I'm not really motivated. I work for a PR/web company and have always thought about building web sites on the side. Hopefully one day I'll follow through!

Also it would probably help if I had at least one other person to work with so that I could become more motivated.

I edit trailers and featurettes by day, and occasionally i moonlight as a director of photography for various studios' celebrity and non-celebrity interviews at $600 a pop.

hmm, i dont have a job so i try to do as much as possible for extra cash. i usually end up participating in studies at the univeristy for some cash. usually it involved bloodwork, sometimes other cool stuff but nothing too problematic. sdaly, outside of student loans, a good chunk of my income comes from pinecone.com. damn, i need to have more birthdays or something to get more cash

my wife works like 10 hours extra a week as a consultant in addition to her day job for $50-$120 an hour depending on the agency. She works for like 3 agencies. These places don't take enough taxes out so it's like free money since at the end of the year the mortgage interest and other deductions make up the difference.

I can't wait to see who I get to root for this year!

(j/k -- I actually had someone question me about my Sox fan status recently. They shut up when I named their 25-man roster in about 18 seconds.)
