Extra Money


Always on the look out for extra money and having time on my hands at 3:50am I have found some interesting websites.
I am seriously looking for a local craft fair to try again to sell my Berry's Bags. I never got a call back from anyone for one this past weekend but I may try to get to the Sandwich Bazaar on a Wednesday. The only bad part is it opens at 8am and set up starts at 6am. Hey, who needs sleep right?
I see some people are making a killing at selling guides on how we can make money. I just found a website with almost every home based business and the guide to start it-
Soap making
Cake decorating
Daycare
Pet sitting
Party rental
cookbook writing.
You name it they sold a book on it, now that is a smart business person.
I have started thinking about a second job again as money is tight and I can't seem to stretch my few dollars any farther.
Any ideas?

I have this pipe dream ... but the investment is giant. LOL.

So - for now - you can bake. What if... you start experimenting? Not for this immediate fair -- but future ones? Think about the return on your cost ... I know nothing about this, just thinking about what I found interesting at the fairs/markets I've been to. (Ssh, not cupcakes, I swear.)

I bought $30 worth of cool edamame salad, chocolate and stuff from a vegetarian stand... I was loving their stuff... I eyed lavender sachet thingies.... the BREAD?! OMG....just think about what people WANT and what you like...
