  • I feel your pain. I would try to get a part time job or something. Just remember school and your baby come before money. You need to graduate and make a better life for you and your child.

  • You will need to work FT and your husband probably two jobs since at your age you likely will not be able to make a lot of money.

  • There are some at home jobs you may be able to do. Alpine Access is an at home call center, although you may need to be 18 for that. If you are doing packets I would get a job sweetie, with any luck they can be flexible! Good luck.

  • I suggest working nights in a resteraunt. You are too young to serve alcohol so find a place that doesn't. Usually, you can make more then a minimum wage job in a shorter amount of time. Stay in school. Be a good Momma.

  • Does your husband work? How old is he? If he is 18 he could join the military. You could have housing, medical and he could have a steady paycheck. You both should be working.

  • Come check out my blog.  I have listed websites (the sites main link, not an affiliate link) that let you make money online, and my experience with them.  You might find what you are looking for there.

  • Maybe you should have thought about that BEFORE you had a child.

  • hmmm. 16 makes it hard! Are you in school? If not, you should do that because in the long run that will have the highest return. If your hubby is old enough, have you considered the military? It is a great career path and there is nothing more wonderful than to serve. Other than that, you could sell what you do not need or take a hard look at your expenses (cigs. booze, cable TV, cell phone??) and see what you can do without to save some money. Good luck!
