  • Start a day care , but that would not be part time, but babysitting could be part time. Just a thought if you had the patience

  • Do you live near a college or a military base? I got a letter from my sons college saying for the bargain price of $798 per school year, they would wash, dry and fold three loads of laundry a week. Military people don't have very much down time, so if someone else can care for their uniforms, they will pay a fair price and be very thankful. This is the only way I know to make money with what you have on hand now. That is, if you have a washer and a dryer, an iron and an ironing board. I figured at the rate my sons school was charging, with 20 students at that rate, I would make about $16,000. More then enough to cover your water and electric bill. Good luck, let us know what you decide to do. You could make up some home made flyer's or business cards.

  • 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.

  • Started a home business for very little $$ and love it. My first commission more than paid for the fee for marketing rights. NO inventory! This is mostly phone work...sharing information. No pressure. Can do it part or full-time. set your own hours. Has worked great for me. You can check it out here :
