real work at home jobs?

Ok I'm a single mom of 3 and I barely bring in 600 a month working full time. I've looked and looked for a better paying job and yet to find one. If I can't find something fast we're gonna go under and I just don't know what to do. Do any of you know of a real legit work at home job that pays decently and not something that I'd have to fork out money for because obviously I just don't have it.

  • I'm taking registrations for several companies looking for telecommuters and ‘home workers'. You can work p/t or f/t for all the places I have listed. I'm also registered with all of the companies and know they are legitimate. Please look at the Top 5 free ways to earn at home at

  • Honestly, when it comes to a legit job where you work at home and earn an actual paycheck it's really hard to find. Typicaly the "jobs" are only given to those who have worked with a company for several years and can manage to do the bulk of their work at home and only go to the office once a week or so. Direct selling companies like tupperware, avon, and the countless others are really difficult to make full time money on. Mainly because so many people sell them already and friends and family can only buy so much. Not to mention you may very well end up spending most of the little profit you make on samples and business tools. I used to sell on eBay for years. At my peek I was making $300 in profit a week. Then with the economy going down and down it went down to $50 and I closed my eBay store after several years and got a part time job instead. So finding a full time job staying at home is really difficult!

  • I have a WAH job that can cost you as little as $5 per month if you are interested. Sign up is free for 30 days; the company is called DiamondCreek Candles. The commissions are great and the company's products are beautiful. Upon sign up the company will give you your own web site to advertise; the stuff pretty much sells itself. Here is the link if you are interested.

  • If you love Dove Chocolate and direct sales/party plan style businesses, you should check out my company... Kit cost is low.

    I have a Squidoo site: Dove Chocolate Tasting Party Headquarters that has lots of info about the company, the chocolate products we market, my experiences with Dove, etc. If you don't at least "like chocolate" then find a company that has products that you do like because work at home businesses are where it's at in good times and bad.
