  • I tried working from home doing my same job, but it a lot harder than I ever imagined it would be. There are a lot of scams out there, be careful and good luck.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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 and job search coaching.

  • You can sell outgrown clothes and toys on craigslist or ebay....use some of the money made to buy other things to sell at thirft stores, yard sales and consignment shops. I've found deals like Gymboree clothes for $1 and sold them fo $15. Once I bought a womans white ralph lauren tank dress for $3 at the Salvation Army, i sold it for $55.

    Selling on ebay can take time though, because you ae to buy the items, clean them, take pics, upload the pics, measure, write the description, put it up....sometimes just 5 things can take me 3 hours. So I try to work in stages to quicken the pace. Like take all the pics, crop and upload them one day, then to all the auctions at once, days like that I can list about 30 or so in a few hours.
