    So you're selling things to make money?

    I iron, wash up, clean stuff in general, hoover and carpet clean, wash the cars and pressure wash the patio. I'm doing surprisingly well

    It's my only option really because I'm off on holiday for nearly a month so there's no point in a job haha

    I was going to say the same OP, I'm selling on eBay to make a little extra cash. Tried everywhere for jobs, both local and in towns near mine and there is absolutely nothing. On eBay so far I've made about £200 - how much stuff do you have to make £50 a week!?!

    erm i made 100 this week but generally i sell about 6 things. You need to choose your products wisely ive got some decent suppliers too. I hoping to expand to about 22 products and make a good 100 a week throughout the year!. Touch wood :P

    What do you sell?

    A friend of mine bought broke computer parts, fixed them and made a substantial profit. I think he made over £1,000 in his 6 week holidays.

    Right now, I'm selling unwanted goods but I'm thinking of cheap things to get manufactured. Things like personalised clothing, key rings etc...

    I made £26 by trading in old XBox games.

    I spent £25 on a new one.

    So, so far this summer I have used my superb money making skills to make an impressive profit of:

    £1.00

    You say that but I've just sold a jumper I bought in the sale (for £25) last winter for £27

    Come on, tell me. I won't steal your ideas. I told you mine!

    I want to expand in eBay, so far I myself am out by about 15 quid as I bought phone stuff and a new laptop mouse. With eBay I think I stand to use money instead of make it... now I want to buy some Levi's...

    Zazzle (link to my shop) can be a nice side-earner - I've made £15 in a few weeks by making up some simple Twilight-fan designs on Paint - Twilight fans tend to be constantly on the lookout for products to fuel their / our obsession!

    How does Zazzle work exactly?
    From what I understand, you create the designs, submit them to Zazzle and they will handle the ordering/manufacturing (i.e. putting design onto t-shirt/mug) and the customer pays Zazzle while you get a cut/royalties - is this right?
