Are you putting in extra time this month?

We all know Christmas is right around the corner, and many of us have a hard enough time just covering essential bills and groceries, let alone having extras for Christmas gifts. Luckily we all have the internet and a few ways to earn extra cash from it. Are you working extra hard on your internet sites to try to earn extra cash for Christmas? Are you putting in more hours at work for the extra cash? What do you do to try to get some spare money to buy gifts?

I'm busting my butt online to make as much as possible. I'm also trying to find cheaper gifts. I'm making a lot of gifts this year instead of buying. I'm actually chacha-ing and mylotting both right now.

I tried to chacha this morning, thinking it might help if I could at least make $100 for next month. Yet again I sat there for like half an hour and not a single question. It's far too frustrating. It's easier to put my energy into Mylot, at least I can go at my own pace on here.

Have you put in your interests? If you haven't done them or if they aren't done right you won't get questions. My fiance had the same problem. I've been on all day and it's been pretty busy. We took turns yesterday all day and made some decent money.

I did put in a bunch of interests, and added a few more the last time I was on. It didn't seem to help at all. Perhaps I'm doing it wrong, but even when it was busy, I still had to fight myself to do it very often. Right now I'm putting my energy into Triond and thus far that's paying off well. I can't make as much as ChaCha, but I am earning on Triond all the time, even if I'm not on it.

I have not been spending much time on anything other than myLot and eBay. I have been really busy with the eBay stuff these past 2 months. I am sure the rest of the month and next month will really keep me busy. Getting lots of cash there. $250 on eBay already this month.

WTG that's a good haul. Where do you find things to sell on e-bay, or are you a reseller, like buy em cheap and flip it for profit?

Actually, the only thing I have been selling on eBay lately is the toffee that I make. Last month I made close to $200 on eBay selling it and $250 this month. Some months are better than others. My son has like 26 Junie B Jones books he asked me to sell for him since he no longer thinks she is cool. So, I will be listing them for him sometime this week. They are like brand new, so they should get a decent amount.

Oh that's really great. I'd never expect anything home made to be a good seller like that. Some people are overly cautious about poisoning and such.

I am definitely spending a lot more time on myLot this month. I am hoping for a couple of other sites to pick up too, as it seems that they have dropped off. They are not as much at your leisure like myLot is. I am also considering selling a few things on eBay. I have sold a few things in the past and thought maybe this would be a nice way to get rid of some things and earn a few extra bucks at the same time. What about you? Do you have any extra special ideas to share with us on earning a few extra bucks for the holiday season? Thanks for starting this discussion, and have a great day!

In past years I have sold things on e-bay to earn extra cash. I keep debating doing that again this year, but the things I have to sell, I'm not sure if I want to part with. Last year I tried to sell something and afterwards realized I really shouldn't sell it. I'm glad it didn't sell.

I do want to at least make my min for this month so I can have a bit extra for my christmas. I think I will make t though as long as i keep going the way I am going. 30 discussions a day is 50 cents. so I will have my ten dollars in about 8 days. Cool huh?? then i need to make sure I have extra in case some of my posts get deleted because you never know when mylot will do that.

I have not put any extra time in, I should really but then I have so many other things that I like to do that I just do not put any extra time in. I find it hard to fit in all the stuff that I can do on the internet to earn money there seems to be so many things that I have to do!

I've noticed that too, that is part of why I cut down on some of it. Anything that wasn't worth while I quit. For the most part I'm just here on Mylot and not much else. Last month I was on ChaCha, but this month that has slowed down too much so I gave up because it was a waste of time. Now I'm trying to build up my articles on Triond and that seems to be doing fairly well. At least I can earn money without actually being on the website, so I like that. I'm not sure I'll reach payout this month, but at least I have it to add to my savings for next year.

I think you will do well with that, are you going to up the payout limit on your account or just keep it at the minimum ten dollars to get it paid out?

I have been slling a few items on ebay. I recently bought m a new winter coat and sold my old one for $20.00. Not too bad. I also make crafts and quilts and sell them on there at a pretty good profit.
