Ideas for interesting side jobs that just 'break even'
« on: August 21, 2015, 11:53:47 AM »
I want to add variety and depth to my working life. So I'm looking for ideas for relatively low pressure jobs  I can 'break even' with. Any ideas?

I work at the farmers market once a week.  I get paid 8.25/hour plus free vegetables!  Its fun, and vegetables! 

Alternatively, you could sell the vegetables you grow.

That does sound fun. 'Farmer' and 'market  retailer' added to the list!

In a similar vein, my CSA offers "working shares."  You go to the distribution site and help set up and supervise the member pick-ups and you get a free share of veggies.
