Key For Cash is the easiest and that I know of. It doesn't pay much but for fun money, it's good.

Have you heard of anyone getting on with Key For Cash lately? Maybe you could try What does a Clickworker do? - Text creation, translations, SEO-text creation,... | clickworker.com

A big bulk of my income comes from freelance writing. I do blog postings, press releases and articles for now.
You might want to consider doing it too since it's so easy to get into. You can get started for free while working on your spelling and grammar at the same time. When I got started, my grammar somewhat suck but doing it for more than a while does help with the English grammar and spelling.

As said above freelance writing is a good option. There are some content sites that are easy to get on with. Private clients will pay the highest usually but the content sites could be good for a faster turn around on payment and getting accepted.

I wrote about sites that payupfront for writing here, if you would like to check it out.

Selling extra stuff around the house is another good idea. Every year, I sell my daughter's stuff that she has out grown in consignment sales and at a yard sale. This gives me some money to put towards Christmas and also give us the much needed room for the stuff.

I agree A writing or a transcription job may be a good one to look into. And you may be able to find some seasonal temp positions in your local area too.

Yes, yes, yes!! I completely forgot about this. What the ladies said is so true, get into writing and this will help. Mozy on down to the writing folder and get tips on who and where to apply.

Textbroker pays 2x a month. What your rating is depends on how much you get per article. Not too bad pay, fairly easy, just filter through the topics, claim, write submit.

DS pays 2x a WEEK. I know many people who make thousands per month with them.

There are many others can't think of them, but the writing part of the forum will help.

You will definitley make some xmas money and then some!

I'm going to jump in and echo what's been said about writing. Many content companies will hire with little or no experience. Pay can be low per article but if you train yourself to write those articles fast (don't over-think it, in other words) it can make all the difference when you need extra money. Good luck!
