Craigslist cash
« on: August 03, 2012, 08:23:03 AM »
Yesterday, on a whim, I clicked on the labor tab of the "gigs" section on my local craigslist (SF Bay Area).  A listing there was asking for somebody with a truck to help with a move that evening. 

I sent them an e-mail that I was available after work and could do it for $25/hr + gas. I received a reply in the early afternoon confirming they needed my help that evening around 7pm. 

I spent about 3 hours (including commute) doing a relatively easy move, met a couple new people, and came home with $80.  This was completely different than my regular desk job, so the variety didn't feel like the drudgery of regular work.  I'm feeling pretty good about it!

Well done.

Not a bad hourly rate at all.

Makin bucks, gettin exercise. 
I am a former teacher who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and am now settled with three kids.
If you want to know more about me, this Business Insider profile tells the story pretty well.
I (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out the Now page to see what I'm up to currently.

Yeah, I actually skipped my usual workout yesterday afternoon.  I'll get it done today after work, and feel extra good about it since I'm $80 richer :)
