OT: evening jobs at home

Has one ever looked at doing part time work at for a secondary income (even if it is not much cash), such as data entry or something like that?
A quick browse around on the internet shows some apparent get rich quick schemes, which you have to pay like 30 to get an "info package", which probably says "repeat what you have just done". Essentially I am after some legit for a bit of extra cash.
Is there any chance I will find something suitable?
Cheers, Matt

Don't go for things that want cash up front. They are most likely to be scams. I have a friend who does home assembly work for a medical supply company. It is boring work but it enables her to work at home whilst monitoring the kids and watching the telly. Her husband has made a small number of improvised jigs for her and now they can knock off the required quantities in about half the suggested time which makes the rate of pay reasonable compared with slave labour.
Don't expect to make a fortune this way. The rates of pay are usually set bearing in mind the comfort, convenience and flexi hours of homeworking and not allowing for your overheads of tools, heat light etc. Watch out for your car insurance if you have to carry either materials or completed work in your own vehicle although such costs can be set against income tax eg all the increase in insurance and about 30p per mile.
That said it can suit some personal circumstances very well.
Good Luck
