Start by going around the neighborhood and knocking on doors to get to know your neighbors. That way you can see who is not home during the day. Those will be the houses you will want to burglarize.

You can also try prostitution. It is possible to literally earn dozens of dollars a day turning tricks in your neighborhood.
If you can pull it off in a biker bar without being violated by a corn dog, more power to you.

Make a list of the things you can do, and print up some flyers. Send them around the neighborhood, or go door-to-door knocking and ask people if there's anything they need help with.

Also, on weekends, hit the garage sales and sell stuff on Ebay. Might take a little while to get a handle on what sells, but there's really good potential markup. One thing that's good is clothing from stores like Abercrombie & Fitch, etc., as long as it's in good shape. If you do the garage sale thing, wake up early and hit 'em early...the good stuff goes fast. It's not hard to find things that can sell for $5 to $10 for a dollar or two. Doesn't sound like much, but the markup is good...multiply by 10, and who knows? I had a friend who make $200 to $300 a week this way.

Lawn mowing, garage cleaning, waiting on line for concert tickets for people, child care, put on a magic show, grocery shopping for people, tutor a school subject, give music lessons, sell photos you've taken, give psychic readings, organize a sports league, teach old people how to use a computer, walk and feed pets for people who go on vacation, get a part time job at the local mall . . . It might help if we knew how old you are, but this should get you started. Good luck!

Hang out in groups of strangers being a pain in the butt. Let them know if they pay you, you will leave.

Both are fun if you do it right!

I used to charge £5 for every car I used to wash. did it once a week and made about an extra £50 a week.

Depends on what you want to do. manual labour, entertainemnt, caring.

The possibilities are endless!!!!!

"£"? Stop making things up, that's not even a real letter. Go back to outer space crazy guy. this is 'Merica!
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Also he didn't ask for extra £££. It's like saying you were paid in monopoly money.

If you're not scared of heights, window washing and gutter clearing can get you a bit of spending money.
