Does anyone else have plans to include that kind of thing as a strategy in order to retire well on less?I'm late to the thread again. Oh well. I'm just catching up on posts since I'm ducking the LBYM board right now.I posted about my semiretirement awhile back:http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=19691649Some of the things I mentioned in that post that I do for extra money when I feel like it are:Reselling used books (and other goods, but books are most convenient for me)Being a market research test subject. I've never tried being a health research test subject, and I probably wouldn't. Working as a pharmacy tech I've seen enough material safety data sheets that I wouldn't want to ingest anything untested, let alone many FDA-approved things.I didn't mention it in that other post, but I've worked as a painter and as a tutor before, and I could do those again if I felt like it. That's something that can be contracted out on a short term basis.Pulling useful things from a trash pile, then selling them or donating them for the tax deduction. I'm not above the rare dumpster diving if someone's throwing out a perfectly useful item. Small wooden furnature is the most common item in this category. I avoid upholstered, electronic, or large items. Someone else can mess with that stuff.
