Extra 200$ a month ...

So ive been applying for jobs for atleast 2 years ... so far ; nothing! I believe i can get disability but i want that to be the LAST resort. (knee injury keeps me from walking a long period of time and sometimes sitting) I dont have any assistance. My SO tells me an extra 200$ a month is all we need ... his pay covers bills,groceries,and diapers , but sometimes we need an extra 20$ or so for other things. Is there any place i really can go to actually get a job , or wah job? anything?

  • have you tried applying to work fast food? not something that alot of adults really desire to do, but it'll be enough for just the extras and you can work opposite of your husbands schedule

  • You should take a few mins to check out Sabrina's Closet. There you will find home based businesses AND WAH Jobs... Find what works best for YOU and go with it. If you need only $200 a month try for $75 a week... If you can make $100 a week, even better. There are tons of options for you there... Good Luck!

  • 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 prep

  • biolife, ebay. baby sitting or nannying, I nanny 40 hours a week for $1000 a month cash I spend my day playing with kids going to movies museums and parks and for a good solid 2 hours of my 8 hour day I have completely to myself (while the kids nap) now I pull my own weight at work and then some I make sure the family I work for never has to do their own laundry, vaccuum, sweep or mop, or unload their dishwasher but personally I think my job is pretty cushy and I love going in to work everyday
