Making some extra money?

I was wondering if anyone has an idea for how to make a little bit of extra money, perhaps $200 - $400 a month. I have a full time job, and am not really in any financial trouble, but theres a lot of things I really need, and moving out, getting a more reliable car, and tools are whats eating up my paycheck.

I want to buy a decent mountain bike by the time the weather's good (May-ish), something in the ~$1000 range, and also a new computer, since my current is about 5 years old.

So a second job is really out of the question since I commute for a couple of hours a day and don't really have time for another shift somewhere. But if you have any ideas, maybe internet related, something that doesn't take too long, I would be grateful.

Please don't say porn.

Porn.


J/P

Selling on eBay would be my best suggestion...or, I know there was this thing where you could make money from searching google, and they pay you through paypal, I've tried it, but then gave up when I found out paypal needed a credit card

SMC

search that on ebay. Become an SMC reseller, cheap to buy into, easy to make money off of. My sister has sold that stuff for about a year, generally rakes in about 500$ a month...without trying that hard.

but on a more serious note perhaps if your good enough you can go to places and ask them if you want to make a website for them depending on the difficulty you can charge whats fair or a little above fair 5-10 websites should be good enough for 25-50 dollars a pop

Thanks I'll look it up, but before I do, is it legal? May seem like a dumb question, but it has to be legit. I've heard of a lot of "funny" stuff going on EBAY.

I can make a webpage, but not a very good one. I'm fairly decent at Photoshop though, is there any money to be made off of that?

Well I looked it up, its obviously legal, but what exactly do you do? What experience do you need? What sort of commitment is required?

all you really need to know how to do is post items on ebay.

you pay for the membership, which is cheap. you post their items on ebay at whatever price you set(as long as it covers your cost) and whatever you make above and beyond the cost of the item, you keep. SMC will handle the shipping.

So basically you are like a salesman for this company, except you sell on Ebay. They cover the rest. Sounds interesting.

The reason I brought this up is because my friend does it and hes like 15 yrs old. He makes the prices that i've listed per page he makes.

Creating webpages doesn't seem like too bad of an idea. I have a friend who actually makes some decent cash doing that.

You could try selling some old stuff you don't use anymore.
It depends on what you are into. Depends on what you are into. My brother is really into music and does recording and produces music for people out of his house.

Don't guys get paid to donate sperm...?

Haha. Before someone takes that literally, let me clarify that i'm just kidding.
