Any suggestions for making a little money at home for a stay at home Mom?

My son is 8 months old and I feel very committed to staying home with him until he starts pre-school, but being a non-contributor financially is really straining my relationship with my husband. Right now I'm only contributing a couple hundred a month to family expenses, if I could even make a thousand a month it would make a HUGE difference! Please help!

  • I sold Avon for my oldest daughter's first year. It was easy to get started in, and if you can sell at a friend or relative's workplace you can build up a client base really quickly. It took me a couple of months to reach a thousand dollars, but after that, some months I would make even more! Good luck!

  • Hello,
    Are you interested in a home based business? I am an independent distributor with Scent-Sations, Inc. (Mia Bella Candles and other gourmet products). I have a lot of information on my website: - my site is a "work in progress" but has a lot of information on it - be sure and check my blogs for even more information also.
    Good luck in your search. If you have any questions, I am more than happy to help you out!

  • Times are tough, that's for sure. That's why it's up to us to help provide for our kids. The best way is to be home with them we all know that. But I'm sure you don't think it's possible, right? WRONG! I am a stay at home Mother of 4. I've teamed up with a health and wellness company that is 100% "GREEN". I've been able to contribute to our finances without leaving my kids with strangers or burdening my family. If you are interested in making money and keeping our planet cleaner, then go to my website It's definitely worth a look and a listen!

  • I am now up tp 3 businesses... I work one full time and don't really earn from the others but that's because I don't really work them but an hour or so a week... I'm with them more for the free stuff and discounts than I am the business end... But here they are...

    I have a business with Ameriplan. I work it 99% from my computer and love what I do. It was really super easy to get started and only took me about an hour to get the websites and basic training done.
    I work about 2-4 hours a day from my computer, an hour a day from the phone, and then do my training while I'm cleaning or playing with the kids. Every trip to the store or walk with the kids is a chance to grow my business... But when you love what you do it's not really work is it?
