    Make a job out of your hobby. The fact is, anything you are going to do to make money is going to take time. Time + money = a job. No matter what you do to make enough money to make ends meet, it can technically be considered a job, even if it's not work in the traditional sense. If you just want to avoid a job you hate or feel like you are working too hard, turn your favorite hobby into a job. No matter what you do, there is always a way to make money from it.

    Work online. There are a number of websites out there that allow you to get quick tasks done for little money. The most popular is Amazon's Mechanical Turk, but ShortTask is also a good option. But remember that the earning potential is very slim. But you can easily do this while doing something else (like watching TV, going to the bathroom, or sitting on the bus).

    Sell ​​things. Go to flea markets or search websites like Craigslist and look for things that are free or inexpensive.

    Rent your house.If you own a house, you can rent a small, cheap apartment yourself and rent out your house for it.

This can be short-term (such as for congresses, sporting events or other events) or long-term.
