What are some unique ways to make money?

I am looking for some ways to make extra money. I would like to buy a car in cash and need about $3-4K to avoid a car loan. Already working looking for something part time.

For part time jobs anyone know what industries/companies are still hiring in MI and OH?

Not looking for a home business at this time

  • I think that you are very smart for looking to buy a car without a loan! Some ideas would be to deliver pizza or throw newspapers. Maybe waiting tables a few nights a week. These are a couple ideas that are a decent source of income that don't require a huge commitment. I have heard of some people making money donating plasma, I don't know anything about doing that though. Also have a yard sale, ask family members to "donate" stuff to your yard sale for you. Also sell stuff on Craigslist.

  • Works4mom I did think about donating my eggs before but I think that I just hit the age limit. The big thing that held me back from it is the small possiblity of my kids accidently meeting and dating without knowing:(
