Intro:Freelance is a great way to earn some money (and it will save some). When i first say this i always here people say "But i am not exert in anything". First you don't have to be expert at start you can just wing it. Second trust me you are good at something. Think what you loved doing in your childhood? That maybe the thing that you are good at. Let's say that you could not find anything in your childhood then think what you may be good at then make a list. From the list choose one of the thing you can do.
After that go to one of the freelance website. I suggest you go to Elance or Freelancer. They have good reputation and good number of real jobs posted. When choosing for the jobs in the website be very specific. "Intro" area is your place where you can tell people who are you and this is very important. Many people have hard time believing someone on internet. Post a picture of yours (if you are shy just use somekind of animation -something family funny). Don't be scared of online community it's like real world there are lot of good people but there some bad apples whe make everyone look bad.
Well whatever skills you have will work.
You need computer, internet and know how to use very basic computer.
Be creative you never know what type of skills people are searching for.
