A Down and Dirty List of Ways to Make some Quick Cash

Mark and I started listening to Dave Ramsy's book The Total Money Makeover.  I'll blog about our journey later, but today I'm working on Baby Step #1: Sock Away $1,000 FAST.  So here is a brainstorm of ways I could make money fast:
  1. Part time job (tricky, juggling the kids and avoiding daycare expenses, but possible)
    1. MikAm Landscaping - hourly pay
    2. Wood Wizardry - commission per project
    3. Retail? Service? 
    4. LeapForce
    5. CloudTen; GSI
  2. Full time job - the kids go back to daycare
  3. Sell stuff on Craigslist 
    1. List/Sell Mike's inventory; collect commission
    2. List/Sell other people's items; collect commission
    3. List/Sell our own stuff
      1. Nissan Sentra????
      2. kegerator
      3. ...damn we got rid of a lot of crap last year....
  4. Sell stuff on Pinterest/Famer's Market/Craft Fair
    1. wood rings

      2. mobile
    7. Canvases; balsa; prints
  5. Real Estate - taking the course in June
  6. Sell e-books
  7. Photography/selling stock photos - I'm wicked scared of putting myself out there as any kind of photographer, but I really like taking pictures and I think I could be good at it...
  8. Babysit
  9. Face painting - seems far fetched, but maybe contract with a party company in town?
  10. Mystery Shopper - research
  11. Virtual Assistant - research
  12. Shadow Jury - research
