Many of us, frugal, financially strapped people have heard of the term ‘Snowflaking’ which in a nutshell is earning small increments of money to put towards our debts.  A great definition of the concept is here from the great blog, I’ve Paid For This Twice Already…

What happens if an unexpected expense arises, where regular snowflaking won’t produce enough money?  My snowflaking activities include taking online surveys, decluttering my flat then selling stuff on Ebay, Amazon and Green Metropolis but if you need a slightly bigger financial injection may I introduce to you Extreme Earning.

Extreme Earning is doing things for money that you would not ordinarily do such as

Selling your blood
Participating in Drug Testing
Donating sperm/ eggs
Participating in police identity parades
Nude Art modeling

There is a website, called Find Extra Work that has a very comprehensive list of all sorts of way to make some extra money. Do you have any ideas how to earn a larger snowflake?

Carnival News

I am very happy to have been included in the first Carnival of Pecuniary Delights. This is an especially interesting carnival because the posts do not have to be date revelant.  Any item you read should be of help regardless of when it was written.  Have a look, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
