It is one thing to want to save money, but another if at the end of the day you do not have any extra money to save.
So I have searched around a bit, and will continue to do so, for opportunities to make some extra money from home so that at the end of the day, you might just have some extra money to save for that rainy day!
cash4books.net: Just type in the books’ ISBN numbers (which you’ll find on the back cover or on the copyright page in the front of the books), and you will find out right away if you can earn some money for them, and how much.
Complete the transaction online, print out a prepaid mailing label, pack up those books and send them in. In just a few days you will either receive a check in the mail or a deposit to your PayPal account. You do not even pay for the postage--very cool!

After you go through your own books, hit garage sales, thrift stores, library sales, Craigs List for free books, etc... If you've got an Internet-enabled PDA, you can look up books at Cash4Books.net/mobile as you shop. Make sure you are familiar with Cash4Books condition requirements first though. You may find a book for .50 that is worth $5.00!
Once Upon a Child (ouac.com): You can sell your children’s gently-worn-but-outgrown items to the store for immediate cash or credit. And when you need to buy children's clothing--Once Upon a Time features name-brand fairly new clothes up to 70% off retail.
Epinions.com: Share your opinions and maybe make a little extra cash with this site.
istockphoto.com: If you love using your camera, check out this site. You can list your photos for sale here and maybe earn some extra money.
Also check out Stock Xchange (www.sxc.hu ) for listing and selling your photos.
NinerNiner.com: This online network has a list of blogs that you can write posts for and earn .50 per post. Niner Niner pays around the 1st of each month, via Paypal.
