Legit work at home?

I want to get into something to bring some more money into the house. Right now my DH works 40-50 hrs a week and I babysit my nieces. I get about 500 a month for babysitting them but in the fall the oldest goes to Kindergarten so it will go down quite a bit. I cant afford to pay anything to get started, and am not really into sales. Does anyone know of anything I could do? Or were to start looking?

  • You could always advertise a few weeks before the start of the next school season for babysitting another child in your home. Honestly 99.9% of replies will be for direct sales companies here. I could say selling on ebay but you said you aren't interested in sales.

    If you won't be babysitting them during the Summer you could advertise now as well

  • There are quite a few options for you actually. The first choice YOU need to make is whether you would like a JOB or a Business. For me the best choice was a business, hands down. I work the hours I want to, around my kids and life. And the income is better than I ever imagined it would be too...

    I will send you some information about what I do, but until then take a moment to review our Overview Audio and see what you think...  Through the month of May you can get started for just $9.95! Awesome opportunity!

  • There are a ton of options. Do you want a business (normally has costs) or a job (only apply for free ones)? I have a list of free jobs at Free Paypal Money

  • 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
