Anyone here have a side job that they do to earn extra cash? If so, what is it?

I deliver groceries in my spare time for Walmart. Its really fun and I work my own schedule and the money ain't bad. I definitely meet some interesting


I supervise an ACT testing site 6 times per year. It's a contract position and we are paid per testing event rather than hourly. I'm in charge of recruiting proctors, booking classroom space, receiving the testing materials, sorting them, and then passing them out to my proctors on test day. During the testing, I really don't have to do anything aside from a little bit of data entry and covering for my proctors when they need a bathroom break. When the tests end, I collect the answer sheets and test materials from the proctors, look them over, package it all up and then send it all back to ACT for scoring. And then a little bit more data entry to make sure we all get paid.

It's a pretty easy gig, and the money's decent. The proctors get a set amount for administering a test (I think it's about $120), but I get paid more depending on how many students are testing on a given day. I've made up to $500 for a single administration. If I figure 8 hours between the prep, the testing, and the wrap-up, that's $60+ per hour. Not bad, especially when half of that time is spent fucking around on the internet.
I have a couple of different irons in the fire. I often get commissioned for various graphic/woods/laser projects which eventually I will spin into a paying hobby once I can scrape up enough to get my own laser. I also work of a buddy of mine that owns a third party service company that works with movers. We basically service the high end art, appliances, tech and gaming tables and make sure they get from point a to point b un damaged. We see come pretty cool shit. Coolest thing I have crated is a grandfather clock signed by once owned by Paul Revere and an orignal oil painting portrait that is on the dollar bill.
