  • Take a look at what you like to do. Do you like to wrap presents? You can offer a gift-wrap service- people drop off their gifts and paper (or use your paper for an extra fee) and you wrap them nicely (of course you make a careful list of what they bring and have them sign it.) Making meals that people pick up is good, only I don't know about Health Department regulations. Babysitting is a basic- and works because you already have toys and furniture for little ones. How about sewing and altering clothing. or ironing. Or laundry. How about a toy assembly service- people drop off the box and you open the box and put the toy together. Or how about a watch the game service- the parent hires you to sit in the stands and watch their child play in a sport or concert, you meet the child before the event and wish them well, and then congratulate and praise them afterward and tell the parents about the event.

  • This is the # 1 question asked here. I am 47 and actually work 2 at home jobs. One is my f/time for 11 yrs which is insurance, the other is a DSA/ Scentsy the wickless candle. I hve to admit Scentsy is the better b-cause it is fun & is on my time. The other is structured. Here is scoop on WAH. You can do anything that you put your mind to. Ebay is great if you want to sell childrens clothes, and womens clothes, etc... really you can do well if you list and work it. Other things as well. Holidays are coming up - buy things at thrift shops, yard sales & list on ebay. I've done the clothes thing and always sold! If you "devote" some work time, you can do this. As soon as I get where I wnt to be in Scentsy then I will quit and add Ebay also to my day b-cause I can use Ebay to supplement. Search here on cafemom for groups: ebay, resale! Scentsy is great also, but I don't Push people, I have info on my home page.

    Sure.  I have created a series of work at home articles on eHow.  They contain excellent resources, ideas and information.  Also, I have a Blog about computer jobs sorted into those that pay via Paypal and those that pay utilizing other means.  You can check them all out at my website:

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation.
