Things to do to make extra money

I'm sure all of you (hopefully) have day jobs doing whatever. What happens when you make pretty good money and would like to spend more, but don't want to change your saving habits or deplete your bank account too much? Do you just abstain from spending?
There are some things i"d like to afford without having to cut it too close. I was wondering what I could do easily to rake in a little extra cash. I was thinking of being a mystery shopper - the pay is decent for doing an easy job, it's fun because you can interact with unknowing salespeople, and if you have to buy anything you get reimbursed for it and get to keep the item. Other than that I can't think of anything easy that won't monopolize all my free time. I wanted to teach a course in CAD but that would take saturday and sunday, and I need at least one day off so I don't go insane.
So what do you guys do to earn extra greens?

After you go out and interact with unknowing salespeople, you still have to write up a detailed report as to what the findings were. I used to work in retail and we would get these reports and they were pretty detailed. Might take up more time than you might think.

I can type well over 100 words a minute. I don't mind writing a spy report. Esp if the salesperson was a total ****** to me. Think of it as James Bond work, for *******.
The report is something I can write at work or on the train traveling to work or at home before bed. Lord knows I spend enough time on this infernal machine as it is.

But it might cut into your porn time.

Remember the episode of the Simpsons when Homer's put into the Witness Protection Program and he wears a t-shirt that says Witness Protection? Well you should wear t-shirt that says "Mystery Shopper"

Ew. There are some things even I wouldn't do. Esp since I'm married, and old people are gross. I'd turn them into Soylent Green, but never boff one.

Are you certerified in anything?

Some retail stores would hire you, even if it's just for a couple nights a week, if you are a certified electrician, plumber, or things like that. Home depot and Lowes are always looking for people that know their stuff, because they get alot of calls from customers with questions.

Any chance of taking on more responsibility or working more hours at your current job in order to get a raise? The best job to have is the one you've already got.
