    Making money from home.....

    Question to you all....

    I've recently been looking at websites that claim you can make money from home. Now, as we all know, the vast majority of these are complete rubbish - stating the ability to earn £5000+ a week for 10 hours work and such.

    However, has anyone actually had any experiance of any of them that DO work? ( at more realistic rates, obviously ) I don't mind what it is, as long as it's legal, of course.... : )

    Reason being, I want to earn some extra money to start my house-saving funds. I earn okay money monday-friday but, if I want to move out of my parents house any time soon... the best way is to make some money on the side, just trying to explore best options - so any other 'money making schemes' are obviously more than welcome!

    If not I think I might just have to resort to some kind of local 'pc repair' or 'network engineer' or some such rubbish to make some extra dough to play with!

    Hit me with what you've got people!!

    TIA

    Well for a start you wont make any money out of putting pc techy in the paper, we as a big shop did it and barely got return out of it for ages..

    Ask for a payrise?

    Start buying and selling things on ebay?

    Start an ebay business that hasnt been covered!

    I went to a house last week a penthouse in kingston and his job was ebay powerseller selling gearstick gaiters for cars..Check out "hot.gaiters" if you dont belive me, money can be made

    Buying and selling on ebay can work. I know someone who's done that, and they're now about to leave their part time job because they get more from ebaying.

    Just made 500 quid on ebay to get a new rig, so it's easy if you have what people want,

    I used to work for a place whilst at uni that paid you to be chat room admin, £5/hour, 4 hour shifts, pretty easy really, especially as you could do other things in the background. No idea the name of the company and i cant seem to find the right search term for gmail.

    Was a fairly small teen chatroom thingy, hence ther reuirement for 24/7 moderation
