Sell stuff on ebay. Go to auction sales, learn about the various collectibles markets, know what to buy, learn what stuff is and isn't worth, see how it does on ebay presently and try to make a few dollars on the side. You'll need to be good at packing things properly for shipment (so stay away from larger items that are not easily boxed) and the paypal and ebay fees and shipping costs will take a significant chunk of your income. You won't get rich unless you become big and successful but the best part about this is you can sell whenever you want, if you want to go away for a few months simply don't list anything once your previous batch of items have been received. And you'll also want to stock up on shipping containers, free from many stores as they stock shelves and recycle most of the boxes!
