How can i make more money?

I am a single mom with a full-time job but with rent, utilities, and other bills, money is pretty tight and now I need to get car insurance for the first time. Does anyone know of a good way to make some extra money on the side without taking away too much family time?

  • I'd try babysitting, first off. That's going to be the most likely to preserve family time. You can try selling things on eBay if you have stuff to sell.

    Are you getting child support? That can take a load off you. If you're not getting it, hie thee to court and GET it. Unless Dad is in the cemetery or prison, he needs to be paying for the child(ren) he helped create.

    And look at what if anything can be cut.

  • Sell your old baby items on Craigslist. Those usually go pretty fast. Baby sitting. Take the kids for a walk and pick up cans to recycle. Do you have any talents or skills like sewing? You could put an ad in Craigslist.... GL
