After years of Carrie Bradshaw-esque analyzing and over-analyzing what went horribly wrong with her perfect-on-paper-terrible-in-reality beau, your bestie Bertha has finally found love again, and she’s getting hitched. And yes, it is Facebook official. Which means, you’ll be maid of honor and you’ll be adding to the expanding collection of petunia-colored bridesmaid dresses in your closet.

And speaking of paychecks, you just got an email from your boss saying that due to the suffering economy and European financial crisis, there will be no raises this year. Joy.
So, the economy stinks, but Bertha’s still getting hitched, and eye cream won’t pay for itself. Whether it’s to help alleviate your ballooning credit card debt or make a little extra cash to splurge at Sephora, here are six stylish ways to make an extra buck or two.
