For a lot of us this is the toughest year we’ve seen yet in terms of our disposable income. DISPOSABLE? With the holidays here, the spending has already begun. Thanksgiving dinner cost more than usual this year. I’m paring down my holiday gift list and giving less than usual. The price of EVERYTHING has gone up and the money coming in has stayed the same. I wish that I was one of those “do it yourselfers”, but my 25 year old son just doesn’t want one of my one armed sweaters (long story, I’ll tell you about it sometime).
I remember picking up temporary jobs around this time of year when I was younger. All of the stores used to hire “holiday help” and for those who wanted a little extra money for gift giving it was a GREAT option. This year, as I looked through through the newspaper I saw very few HOLIDAY jobs.
Of course, being resourceful, I started hunting online. VOILA! I found this.
So, if you are looking to bring a little extra money into the household to help pay for the holidays….here are a few options.
