I am always looking for new ways to make extra money. Right now I use several legit paying sites. I have been fortunate to find really good sites that pay on time. What do you do for extra money? Do you do all your earning online or do you do things offline for extra money? Like do you mow lawns, babysit etc???

hello moneymommy with the current economy situation that we are all experiencing these days, i guess that everybody is trying to find a way to make an extra buck here and there. and most of the extra money that i earn for myself, is through the computer. i work a part-time job, some weeks i just work ten hours and other weeks i work twenty. so i never know exactly how much money that i will earn working. so in my spare time, i enjoy spending time on the internet, either here at Mylot, or the other money making websites that i am a member of. when i get bored, i will do internet searches to see if there is anything new out there to make some extra money doing. take care and have a beautiful day today!

well for the most part I help out with my aunts and grandparents and I will make like an extra 20.00 here and there with cleaning an apt or helping out with things once in a great while.... only those are hit and misses...that is why I started to look for online work at home... I need more money as a full time mom!! ...and with the economy and hubby's work slowing down anything extra I get is good!! ...plus I am so tired of just being broke all the time. so far my earnings have been slow but I am looking for new sites every day and putting my time in when I can!! happy mylotting!!

Thats great that you can earn an extra 20.00 from cleaning up once in awhile. Today I made an extra 20.00 from selling something I had sitting in my closet for years.

I have a couple of paying survey sites they are really good and pay in my currency in the UK, so it is better too rather than having to have it converted..littleowl

I have been doing a few online pay sites too. Starting Monday the 13th of April I will be babysitting my cousin's little baby until school is out. She is a school teacher. The regular babysitter is in the hospital and will be going on dialysis and will no longer be able to keep the baby.

I do shadow shopping for a company out of Canada the pay is very little but they do pay. You have to certified for each company you shop and make a detailed report at the end of each visit. It works out to about 90 mins worth of work for $10.00

I only use Mylot now for online money. I use to have about 10 sites online. Some of them went bust so now I am only using Mylot. I have a booth in a flea market to make extra money. What I do is buy stuff at garage sales, and then resell them. It's not much money, but every bit helps.

Aside from the fact that I have my work, during my free period at home, I always find a way on how I make use of this time and make it productive. As of the moment, I have been looking for jobs through craigslist.com and getafreelancer.com. Its not actually the site where you get money, but it's a site where you can apply for employers/people that would like to have their work done by others and pay them for the job. Right now, I have been working as a forum poster, that's for 5 days, and get $30.00. The price really depends on who the person you are talking to. There are lots of job opportunities on that site, it's not like I am endorsing the site, but am pretty sure that most of mylotters would also enjoy looking for a job there with their field of expertise. Fields of job offers would include, blogging, programming, data handling, language transcription and lots lots more. Hope this one would help you moneymommy. Try to check those two sites that I have mentioned and who knows, you can find the job suitable for you, for you knowledge, and most especially for your time. In addition for that, there are jobs available for long-term such as 6 months, and there are part-time jobs available(like what I have now, it's just for 5 days). Enjoy making money!

Well, I have a job and this is how I earn money. My job involves conducting safety training programs which includes first aid and cpr courses. Aside from that I also worked as a medic of our city's SWAT unit. I do earn online but this is just for fun. Though there are times that I do earn quite good. Another thing that I do is forum posting here in mylot. I do reach payout from time to time and its fun.

At the moment I make all of my money online. I am trying to get my resume writing business up and running so I really hope that gets off the ground when I'm ready. It would be nice if I could be successful enough to live relatively well off that business.
