  • Do you get a tax refund? If you do, adjust his withholding rate so you have the money weekly instead of at the end of the year. Can you bake or sew or anything that would actually bring in money? Anything you can sell?

  • no we usally end up paying in for tax. my husband is claiming 8 on fed and state we have a houshold of 4. i try to sell things on ebay much i do not make out on that at all. maybe a $1.00 or less. we really do not have any big stuff to sell. i know there is a lot of jobs out there that you can have partys to sell things but i am not a very out going person and i can not get up in front of people to sell things and promote the product i guess if you want to call it i am shy. i wish i could find somthing that you could do some kind of work on the computer but i do not know of any thing. my husband has been at his job for 20yr's and does not know were else he could go. not much out there. please help need edvice of what i can do and how i can even get my childrent christmas gifts.

  • don't use a DAYCARE! use a person that watches kids out of there homes and you will save ALOT. i work two to three days a week (12 hours) and i have paid up to 30 a day. which is only 60-90 a week. but right now i pay 15 a day which is only 30-45 a week. or try to work at a daycare! you will get paid and will maybe only have to pay half of the rate.
