  • Check out This is what I do, I didn't have any start up costs, I use the service myself...and would even without the monthly commission checks.

  • 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.

  • I agree with Iraqvetwife Blastoff is completely free and the stores that you would more than likely shop at on a normal basis (ie Target, wal Mart, Kmart, Starbucks, Barns and Noble, etc.) are on there you can make money while shopping as well as JUST MAKE MONEY!! Make even more as a Pre Paid Legal Associate but I know times are tough and start up can be costly so make money for FREE on Blastoff and become a Pre Paid Legal Associate once you have started making money with Blastoff!!! check it out

    click on mall and scroll down and check out all the strores!!!

    email me if you are interested either on here or at
