What is a good way for a sahm to make some extra cash?

I am just looking for a way to contribute financially and maybe have some spending money for either my kids or myself. I'm considering a couple ideas already, but just wondered if anyone had new ideas. Thank you--Leslie

  • I make extra money working online. I’ve cleared over 19k 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 Free Money Online if you’re interested. (Everything posted is free

  • 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 like network marketing as I can build my business when and how I want, and I get back what I put in.

    I have recently joined a company that is allowing free signups until Sunday at 10pm CST and the business is very much internet based, so you don't have to worry about home parties.

    If you are interested you can visit or take a look at my journal.

  • Get a baby sitting license if you have the room.
    Then you can take in one to two kids each week and earn some extra money.
