I would like to know how.people are generating money. This would not be the daily 8-5 job. I want to know the creative ways or simple ways to create extra income. For instance, I Just sold an old vintage wooden cabinet with an old enamel.sink in it for $50. I sell eggs off and on. I currently do not work a job because of health, but would like to contribute to our income. What kind d of things do you do, or have done to make money.

Kem, I have had a very successful apron making business, that started with just a couple aprons at our Farmers Market. It kept me so busy that I had to finally back off a bit and only make a few now and again. I'm dealing with health issues as well and find it hard to do that, keep up with things and do anything extra.

My hubby does a lot of odd jobs which include welding, woodworking, etc., etc. Other than that we try to make it on Social Security!

Kem,
The only other thing we do is sell some of our beef when we have one ready to butcher. I had hoped to try for a little part time job to help out, but the health challenges have prevented that.

Marlene, I am interested in the online surveys. What is entailed? I also take clothes to a upper end used clothing store and make enough to buy new to me clothes every season, plus some awesome jewelry in the store.
