I am looking for a part-time job that I can do from home. My husband and I would like for me to be able to become a stay at home mom by the end of the year but we need to pay some of our small debts off. Any suggestions?

  • I work for ChaCha! answering questions online that are texting in by people across the country. It's a legit business that requires you to apply, train, and pass a test to work for them. Please go to my profile and read my journal post about them :)

  • I know what you are going through. We made sure to pay off all of our debt before I went on maternity leave with my baby who is 9 months now. I have not returned to work and we decided I should stay at home. I'm still looking for that job I can do from home, but we are surviving cash wise. We realize how much of our income was going to debt! Create a monthly budget on everthing you spend. This way you will know how much extra income you will need. This worked for us, occasionally we dip into our savings, but not much. Good luck to you!

  • Have you looked into medical transcription? I know some people who do that from home while baby sleeps. I also so on HGTV about haver hill (I believe that's what it was called) about home staging. Not something you could do from home, but something you could do part time maybe.

  • I found some great advice in this article on Yahoo Shine and in the blog the article refers to:

    Everything from bread recipes, homemade laundry detergent recipes, mystery shopping for Longhorns, participating in focus groups for Subway and Lenscrafters, getting free samples from Walmart I have not had to buy shampoo in months!), online coupons, etc. There are no MLM or pyramid schemes, nothing asking for money on this blog that is referred to in the article. It is all creative, legit ways to make money at home. Whatever you do, do not pay to take part in a MLM scheme! Our family has been trying all of the ideas on this blog one by one. Go to the article above and the blog is in there. Hope it helps others like it has helped us!
