A way that I supplement my income is with a part-time position as an ad setter. These are the people that put up sale signs in stores in the evenings. This type of position has many benefits including getting items at dirt cheap discounts, knowing when items are going on clearance, and making on average about $500.00 extra per month for working anywhere from 1 to 3 (4 to 6 hour) evenings per week. Moreover, these types of positions are easy to get and most stores are only too happy to work around your schedule.

You could ask around your workplace if anyone, or if anyone knows anyone else who has any private typing they'd like you to do.

I would suggest typing up some professional-looking flyers and posting them around town. You might get jobs typing resumes, theses, etc.

If you have lots of books, you may also want to check into selling them on half.com, a division of e-bay. It's not an auction -- you set the price. I have made a nice little sum doing this with books I no longer want, and even some I have picked up at yard sales, etc. Check out www.half.com.

There is a really cool website called Soho Jobs, that lists all kinds of home-based jobs in all areas, most with addresses and ways to apply. These aren't home-based business scams, they are legitimate companies looking for employees. I work at home, but I do medical transcription which requires schooling.

You could look into becoming a medical transcriptionist. It pays well and you can do it from home.
