1- Use your watch list: Find multiple deals on the item you want, and then place it in your "watch list." (you can find this located on the upper right hand corner of the page when you click on an item). Here, you can compare and contrast the costs of each item you are looking at, and it will help you keep track of those great deals.
2- Wait to bid: I know it's tempting to claim your prize, but if you bid too early, your competition might strike a bid battle. This can drive up the price of the item significantly. Wait until just before the item ends to bid, and you will have a better chance of getting the item, and paying less for it.
3- Do your research: How much should you really be paying for your item? If you can find it cheaper at walmart or amazon online, you might want to wait it out for a better deal to come along.

One long talked about form of making money on the side is Plasma. You've probably heard of it, but there are a few looked over benefits of braving the needle and spending an hour or two in the chair.
1. In some places you can make up to $300 a month.
2. Money payback is immediate
3. Most places are fairly accessable
4. You can feel good knowing that your plasma is going to a good cause
A good website to learn more about donating plasma in your area is: http://www.biolifeplasma.com/html/getting_started/getting_started.html

I've been trying to find new ways to make the dough, and I found one that seems to have slid under the radar. It's a program called Mechanical Turk within Amazon. Within the program you are paid to enter data that a computer can't, and get paid for each "hit" you accept and finish.
I've been skeptical of these programs before, but I've had good experiences with Amazon thus far, so I thought I would give it a try.
Concensus: It's similar to online surveys, it doesn't pay a lot, but most of the "hits" are small brainless data entries, good for a mindless hobby while watching your favorit movie or t.v. show (Fringe!).
You can check out the website here: https://www.mturk.com/mturk/welcome
