  • I make extra money working online. I've cleared over 14k in the last year, it's not a way to get rich, but you can avoid retail/fast food jobs by doing it. You can see what I'm doing at if you're interested. (Everything posted is free)

  • Hubby works his butt off to support us. I also have a home business with AMERIPLAN and I am putting a good bit of that income away for Christmas and just spending extra in general. It's easy to do and I am only working it very P/T right now because I now have a 3 week old with my 1yr old. As soon as I get a schedule down LOL I will go back to working a little bit more than P/T.

  • I sell on ebay and depending on the time I spend getting inventory and listing I do anywhere from $50-$400 a week in profit. My husband works for Verizon Fios and does really well with that, an average of $800-$1,000 a week. We also have a carpet cleaning business we started about a year ago. We do it part-time but still do about 5 jobs a week (and make $500-$800 a week with that alone.

    I will always sell on eBay, I've been there for about 8 years, but we have a large Home and Garden show we are doing in March and hope to have our Carpet Cleaning biz be our full time occupation and he can quite Fios. Right now though the money is just really good with them, and we are fixing up our house, just got a new roof, getting new carpets next week, then demo the kitchen and bathroom after Xmas...
