    I was wondering if anyone had some tips on how to earn some extra cash? And how exactly you went about doing it. Maybe you started a dog walking business or something?
    I have my mornings free generally and wouldn't mind hearing advice on ways to go about making extra cash!

    Thanks

    I write and translate on request. It doesn't pay much, but it helps fund my paypal account, which funds my awesome T-shirt collection.

    Why not put a classified ad up to snow blow or shovel a driveway for cash? Especially with all the snow we have this year!!

    Lol, Alberta does NOT have a lot of snow, which is where I am! However I was thinking dog walking? Since the weather is so nice out.
    Part time job is my problem, I am sick of a part time job! I just finished having a full time job and two part time jobs, which meant I never had a day off. That is mentally taxing for me. I had to give up one of the part time jobs to gain my sanity back.

    I pay a dog walker, he's a college kid that lives nearby. I'm not sure if he has a lot of other people who use him, but he is really great with my dog. Have you checked kijiji? There are usually people offering that service on there, might get an idea of the going rates for your area, and if there are a lot of people doing it you might want to do something else Keep in mind though, my guy walks my dog no matter the weather, he had him out there in minus 30 weather, in a snowstorm, everything. He will take the dog home since he lives nearby to warm up if needed, but he doesn't miss a day for the weather.

    This is a tough one. I say try to start a home-based business. What are you good at? Do you have any hobbies?

    If you provide some interests, maybe we can help wittle it down.

    For example, if you say you like to cook, here are some ideas: approach diner type restaurants and offer to bake their desserts. Prepare sauces, condiments, or jams and sell them at a farmer's market.

    Not food related, but close to cooking: make beauty products. I can't believe what people pay for brand-name products that are made with cheap ingredients found in your kitchen. Sugar scrub anyone? All it is a sweet almond oil, sugar and a few drops of essential oil. Soaps would need a bit of practice, but with the right ingredients, you can sell a bar of soap for $5 for $1 worth of ingredients.

    What about something like "personal assistant"....

    With both my husband and I working FT and sometimes after hours as well, sometimes it would be super nice to have someone run errands for us, a service I would definitly pay for when I was running short on time...

    I'm not sure whether you have the resources (like transportation) for something like this, but dropping of/picking up dry cleaning, mailing parcels, light shopping, picking up dog food from the pet store (maybe taking the dog for nail clipping), etc is something that you could do a few mornings a week.

    You would have to consider what would be worth your time to do (i.e. cost of gas if you had to drive somewhere), and how you would collect (i.e. getting enough grocery money up front, getting paid for your service)

    Visiting seniors and running errands for them or looking after small children if you have the patience for that kind of thing.
