Any ideas on how to make more money?

At the moment, my situation is I work 20 hours a week, rent 2 bedroom house partly by housing benefit, rest out of my wage. I get CTC, WTC, CB, HB, CTB, maintenance from ex, and my wage. With work, any overtime we do isn't paid and comes out in toil. So was wondering, besides selling on ebay, how else can I make extra money, preferably that I wont get taxed for. Any ideas? Thanks.

I tried selling my body once. I came home with £30.50. My dh said "who gave you the 50p?" I said "all of them".

boom boom - sorry.

seriously - I am trying to make mnore money the the moment. I am selling books, baby things and other things on ebay and MN. I am making hand made cards and trying to sell those too.
Luckily I also do novelty celebration cakes and have had a couple of commissions this week so that's come in handy.

helsi Mon 06-Jun-05 21:32:57

I work for a network mktg company ideal for working from home. The job works round you and I love it because i can be with my children and for a fantastic company who treat me well. Its dosent cost much to set up and is fun and rewarding after a few mths, its not a get rich quick scheme but its a rewarding business.

Phoenix card Trading, they a brilliant selection of cards etc that you can sell at home by arranging parties and you can do Trade fairs and stuff. My friend does it and it's early days but if you keep going with it you can work from home and go to other people's houses and it's not just at night, like some ones.
