Whether you're looking to cash in on your mint-condition Pokemon cards or you have a gently used Coach purse you're ready to send to a new home, selling new or like-new items on eBay can be a great way to bring in some extra cash (or in the case of those Pokemon cards, A LOT of extra cash). You can trade in your collectibles, clothes, shoes, and jewelry for relatively speedy dough. You can also sell your own creations, like homemade jewelry; who knows—you might end up an entrepreneur! But you definitely need to familiarize yourself with eBay’s terms of use and the whole online auction process, with things like shipping and handling costs, buyer feedback, and more.

A traditional way of earning money in your student life is selling your old notes. This is a one-time money making way yet this can be extended putting in some efforts. Students are always searching for someone who would write notes, make presentation, assignments, practical files and projects for them. This can be your mean to make money and somewhat gaining knowledge as well. Writing notes for students can be paid in accordance to one page basis. This was something a fellow mate in my college use to do and he made some decent money for the same. ClearSlide, Prezi, and Slideshark are some other platforms for making impressive presentations that will help you get paid. There is one flaw in the Indian education system, that is, students can always copy the projects of former batches which presents us with a new way to make money. Utilising the contacts, one can also come up with small shops like the ones which take orders for making presentations, working models and charts. This will also polish, the student’s skills and earn him/her a good pocket money.
If you have anything you don't use anymore, and it's too large to sell online, Craigslist should be your go-to place to sell stuff. In college, you may want to sell all your furniture before moving home from school at the end of the year. Depending on what you own, a few $100 might be better than storing it or transporting it back with you. It's easy to setup a listing and sell anything on Craigslist.

Talking about another example here, a senior of mine in some other college had some financial trouble at home. Paying the college fee was somehow, becoming arduous hence, he thought of a way to teach youngsters piano, which he had learned 5 years before. In his after college hours, he gave lessons which earned him 700 per students. Within a month 20 students enrolled in his classes.
If you have decent writing skills, then this is definitely something you should try. Article writing is a form of freelancing. But it is much easier, especially for students. You can write articles for money in various places. First of all, you could write for articles the top article directories, such as EzineArticles. You can also join other content websites and write articles there by creating HubPages or writing Squidoo lenses. You can also write for reputable blogs. Write a few guest posts on various blogs for free, and who knows? You might get picked up by another blog owner looking for writers?
Kinda like eBay IRL, clothing consignment shops are havens for the thrifty and fashion conscious. Take your old prom dresses, dress khakis, and other gently worn items and see what kind of cash you can get. (You can even bring in that new dress you've had for four years but never worn but keep saying you'll wear someday...it's time to let it go.) You typically won’t be paid until the items sell, but depending on the quality of the piece, you could earn a pretty penny. Though most consignment shops carry your favorite mall brands, you’ll also find some selling just higher-end stuff, so make sure you know what kind of merchandise the store is looking for.
Maybe you prefer to take pictures versus creating a painting? That's fine, and there are ways to sell your stock photos as well. The Penny Hoarder has a great guide to selling stock photography, and it breaks down step by step how to sell on iStockPhoto or Shutterstock. When you start out, you will earn roughly 15% of the selling price, but it can go up to 50% over time.
Along the same lines as donating plasma, young and healthy adults could donate their sperm or eggs for money. Donating sperm doesn't command much, but it can be a small supplement to your income. On the other hand, donating your eggs could earn you anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000. However, there's work involved in the process, and it's not painless.
Not only will you be helping meet a critical need, but those pints of plasma or bags of blood can earn around $20–$50 each (and you may even be able to donate multiple times per month). Never donated blood? You’ll have to answer a few questions, meet blood donation eligibility requirements (check out the Red Cross donation guidelines), be cool with needles, and have anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to spare, depending on the wait time to sit down with a nurse. Plasma donations are a bit more involved: you could be hooked up to two needles (depending on the machine), have little mobility, and it takes about one or two hours total—but you’ll probably spend that time watching a movie surrounded by lots of nice nurses! Just be sure to take it easy after donating and replenish your fluids with lots of water and juices.

Apply for new scholarships and grants. A lot of students think that they are only eligible for funding when they initially apply for admission. This is a mistake! There are often new scholarship opportunities for upperclassmen, though they aren't always widely advertised. You may also be able to apply for external scholarships or grants, which are offered from groups outside of your school.
