This is another anything but the election post. I work a second job, so I can pay off debt and my car sooner. Any other (legal) money making ideas?

I play for weddings and make custom pinatas for birthday parties.

You'd be surprised at some of the talents people have that they don't even realize they have.  Take a friend of mine, a few years ago she was flat broke and thought she had no job skills to get back on her feet because she'd been a SAHM for so long.  We were talking about it and I brought up that she was really organized and good at inspiring people.  Well, she turned around and started her own cleaning and organizing service, and now she makes more money than I do.

That is great. I think about the things I can do, but making money writing is a gamble

I know one can make money writing for those advice websites.  What kind of writing were you thinking about doing?

I can write poetry, short stories and I probably could give advice.
I'm a lot better with words than I choose to demonstrate on here

Go to your library and in the reference section look for the book writers market. It's basically a huge lost of publishers and magazines, how to submit, what they pay etc... If you want to make money with it, you just have to submit and keep doing it.

Take a chance on self-publishing through Amazon.  I've been trying to work up the nerve to do that myself.

I don't remember, do you have a yard? You can pick things up cheap/free & have yard sales when you have enough stuff. I've found things on the side of the road & sold them for several hundred dollars.
