  • I'm a PartyLite consultant, I love it. There's no start-up fee. You get a ton of free product for your display. A consultant will usually average in $100 dollars a party. You get paid weekly. If you are interested let me know. I'm a SAHM too, so it's perfect for me.

  • If you live in a large enough area, you may consider cleaning rental houses, if you have an eye for a bargain, go to yard sales and thrift stores and find something you could resell on Ebay or craigslist for a profit. If you have friends wanting to get rid of their stuff, let them pay you a commission to do the same for them. Childcare would give your kids a playmate or two, offering shopping or errand running for a fee would be a good thing to try also. Good Luck!

  • I was in a situation where I had to make some extra income for a few months to pay off a debt. I couldn't invest any money to start any of the work at home sites. So I had to search out the free ones. I found some really good ones, and some really bad ones. So, if you're looking, it's free, you have nothing to lose, you should go to Make Money Online
