How do i make some extra holiday cash?

I have a few ideas:

1. Post a sheet on the bulletin board at nearby stores, to give people rides to Doc Appointments or to do their holiday or food shopoping.

2. Post a bulletin to wrap peoples holiday gifts

3. Bake cookies, cakes and pies

4. I can't think of anything

Any suggestions? No bashing please:)

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, . Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching.

  • Heres a free website,
    Here are some ideas:
    Holiday baskets would be a good one-
    Kids jewlery and kids hair barretts-
    If you intrested in baking maybe you could create a cookie shop where you deliver (like pizza places) but instead your delivering cookies

  • Have you thought about direct sales? I'm sure you've seen the Avon commercials, but the truth is that those things are a reality in pretty much all facets of direct sales if you work for them and right now is typically the busiest selling season of the year so it might be a great time for you to get started. I am with a party plan company that sells Adult Products but there are hundreds of other categories out there. You might prefer selling makeup, clothing, jewlery, scrapbooking, or cookware to name a few.

    If your not into those suggestions you could try to do a temp job like wrapping gifts. Most of the time these jobs are easy to come by and they are only part time and only through the holiday season.
