I hear you about the “salad days.” Thankfully (knock wood) my husband is still gainfully employed. I thought I’d get a part-time job to supplement our income. There is NOTHING out there. I divided a bus load of plants from our garden and sold them at a garage sale last year. Looks like I’ll be digging a few more...

My husband works for himself (computer consulting/repair/networking/security, etc.) and things have been a bit slower for him this year.

Luckily my workload picks up this time of year and I get lots of hours and all the overtime I can handle from now until July, so it evens out our budget.

Garage sale? You betcha! A good friend and I have one each year and last year I really stripped the house (sold lots of stashed fabric and yarn) and made $300.00.

When I’m back working from home (in a few years) I plan to hold a huge “Trash or Treasure” sale each season or a plant sale or invite locals to come to our farm for the day to sell what they grow; a Farmer’s Market, but on a real farm, LOL! I think the concept will sell itself. ;)

There are plenty-o-ways to make a buck even in a horrible 0bamaconomy. :)
