Hi everyone, Lots of people are always talking about making extra money and are talking about how they use the Internet to do it. The next thing you know, you have all these referral links popping up. :( My question for you is how do you make extra money by NOT using the Internet. Part time work? I have taken to going for walks and collecting empty beer bottles thrown on the ground. This way I clean up my neighbourhood and make a little (and I stress little) extra money. :) cheers,

Angels - These Angels are made as magnets, pins, and ornaments.
I also pick up cans and bottle to return for the deposit, as you said, a little but I feel if someone else has thrown that money away it's my gain and it does add up for little effort. I crochett and sell baby afghans - I sell the most online but have sold a few off-line as well. In a few weeks my daughter and I are having a yard sale and am going to set up a spot to sell 'crafts' also - between the two of us we have several different things we sell. Such as the angels I've attached a piture of here. We are doing them as refriderator magnets, pins, and ornaments.

These are some good ideas. How many bottles or cans do you get in a typical day? cheers,

Oh I don't really pick up cans daily but one day I went for a walk and got 15 - that was $1.50 for going for a walk. I've known people however who have made $20-$30 in a day.

I just went out this morning. I try to go out early in the morning on Saturdays and Sundays (after the parties) I found 40 in less than an hour. I usually find them around the schools. :) cheers,

Hello,golfproo, i do not have anything for earning extra money other than on the internet.Mylot is actually the site which i use mainly,i also have a few survey sites for earning extra money but i am not really active there. It is a good thing if i can really get some sources to make some extra money other than earning online.

Yes...I use ebay quite a bit as well. I would have to say that has been the most successful for me. But it still uses the Internet :) cheers,

We live on a fixed income....I did not begin with myLot to make extra income but have been pleasantly surprised as the amount of my earnings here is rising at a steady pace (for the most part).....LOL I also use the internet to keep in touch with friends and family....

I have not really made too much on MyLot. I really never expected to. The good news is however is I managed to make my first payout this month. :) My best day ever on MyLot was $1.76. I posted about 85 responses and started 3 discussions which averaged about 30 responses. I really have not gotten too active with adding images. cheers, :)

The only other thing I do besides workng FULLTIME is taking my pop cans and bottles back. The only problem is I spend twice as much to buy the pop. But hey I guess if I can earn a little money back, whynot right. LOL.

I clean newly built homes and get them ready for the families who purchased them on the side. I also do some graphic design work on the side such as flyers, posters, scrapbooking, business cards, and much more.

The same as you , if I see bottle lying around then I will pick them up and take them home and put them in a bag but it really doesn't give much if anything because I was figuring out the other day with a friend while I was doing this that the cost of the bag would be almost the cost of what I was going to recieve for the bottles and then when you take in your gas expense you are actually out money . So I guess other then the internet , I am not able to make any extra money unless I babysit for someone which I don't do much of anymore because I find it harder as I get older and the fact that I have five children of my own and two of them are still quite young .

I am a sales consultant for a direct sales company that sells kitchen tools through at-home shows. I love doing it, as it combines several things I enjoy: cooking, adult conversation, and teaching. I put in about 10 hours a week and make about $200 a week.

Well of course if you want to make extra money, you can do things like collecting cans and bottles. Or maybe you can do part time jobs (if you have extra time golfproo ^^). But because of the internet, everything seems easier and information can be spread everywhere in this world. So if you want to make extra, you can use internets ^^ But for me, I prefer selling my "useless" things like papers, bottles, toys, etc. It will give me money and will clean up my room space. Hehe... ^^

Hey golfproo. I admire your part time work. It gives you extra money and is also environment friendly. Well aside from the net, I also work as a freelance writer sometimes.

I don't make money any other way. Perhaps I should look into it. On the rare occassion we sell an item second hand. I will have a look at your other responses to this good discussion & see if there is anything useful I can learn from.

i have been into electronic loading transactions of mobile phones here in our place. for all you know, we have several phone services that offer prepaid credits to their users through electronic loading. prepaid cards are also available but the most common and pratical way of loading your cellphones is thru the eload transactions. i am a retailer which offers loading of credits to cellphones in various amounts depending on the clients' requests. i usually get 14% commission for every transaction.

What a good way to bet a little money and help clean up the neighborhood! I, too, get really tired of all the referral links. I have seen people ask that question. Nowhere in the question did I see a request for link, just ideas. I do some babysitting and some housecleaning on the side. I am also looking into being a virtual assistant. Of course, that is online.
