  • i don't know how large of an area you live in, but Avon is good and requires only a $10 to $20 dollar initial investment. Of course subsequent catalogs can be taken out of your profits. For a slightly larger investment (i think it is $100) Pampered Chef is good, but does require some outside work (going to customers homes for parties, but you could possibly bring your son). I am looking for something too, but not into sales, so let me know what you learn.

  • is a Legitimate website with Legitimate jobs at home. There are data entry jobs, customer service jobs, sales jobs, jobs taking reservations for places like Disney. Also REAL paid survey sites and REAL mystery shopper jobs.
    I was on the evening news because I promote ONLY LEGITIMATE work at home jobs. They cost NOTHING to start and NOTHING to work there. You get paid and you NEVER pay them.

  • DON'T pay anything to work from home! Not even 1 damn dollar.

  • You could look into taking care of another child. You are already up and doing things, and it might make a good playmate for your child!

  • You can sell candles. There is no sign up fee and you can definitely make extra cash. These candles are reasonably priced and sell themselves. You could do fundraisers, online orders, catalog orders, in home parties, open houses. There are endless ways to make money doing this. Visit my page on here and see what I have. I can help you. : )

  • If I were you, I would focus on something that does not rely on sales. Times are tight and people cut back on things like candles, makeup, etc. I work for a few companies that ARE legit jobs, with no investment and no sales to count on. You can see my reviews at

  • I sell Pure Romance products. Although, you do have to buy your demo kit; if it doesn't work out you'll have ALOT of fun with your new items. LOL. I love my job and it allows me to set my schedule. I never miss birthdays, school related projects, friend get togethers, etc. It has truly been my lifesaver and it allows me to have a 'girls night out' !
