Look on craigslist for things like video game systems and sell them on EBAY.
I bought a Gamecube for 75 bucks with 2 controllers and like 6 games.
Sold on ebay for like 120...
Stuff like that. Find stuff and sell on ebay
That's a lot of work for a lady with a kid though..
find item on Craigslist
drive to item's location, buy item
photograph item, list on Ebay
wait a week
deal with pain in the butt buyer (if item sells)
package item securely
drive to postal store to mail item, pay for postage
Ebaying stuff is just a huge pain.
