  • Do childcare! Make sure you are set up and baby proofed and advertise yourself on craigslist. Even if you just allow drop ins on weekends or only do a few hours during the week it makes some decent money. I charge $3.10 for potty trained and up, $3.25 for 2-potty trained and under 2 I charge $3.40. I have a playroom and big playset in my backyard and I never have to worry about having kids to watch because people are always knocking down my door. have to love kids too!

  • I work at home with Ameriplan. I love it and this month I ended up brining in more money than my husband even though I only work about 2 hours a day! There are lots of things you can do. I only wanted about $100 a week to help with groceries. Now my goals are set higher.

  • I would take care of kids. It does sound like an ok idea. It's just that I'm nervous about it because I already have my 2 sons ages 8 months and 2 (almost 3) years old. and also worried that I wouldn't know what to do with all the kids all day.
