Another idea for making extra money for the holidays involves getting registered at local Marketing and Research Firms. If you are local to the Indianapolis or Tampa area, one great one to register with is the Herron Group. For my Indianapolis friends, they are some current focus groups they are recruiting for. You can see if you qualify by answering some questions after getting registered. Many focus groups pay between $75-$150 and usually only take 1-2 hours of your time.

This is one that appeared for Indianapolis if you want to see if you qualify: http://projects.herron-research.com/arcspages/survey8323.asp.
