What are you doing to make $$ at home

I sell on Ebay, write for Demand Studios and do some on line marketing. What do you do, is is just for mad money or are you supporting the family on it. I love to hear of new ideas and advice from successful WAHM's out there.

  • I take care of neighbors' animals when they go out of town and do some cleaning for them too. It helps pay the bills more than you'd think!

  • I have started to build up my clientele for doing clothing alterations, drapes, etc. I did this for many years before we moved. It is not mad money, but goes right into our budget. I have sold many things on eBay this last year too. Plus I am working outside the home 2 days a week doing childcare.

  • I have a Home Business with Ameriplan :-). It is a career for me and is building very nicely to be able to replace my husbands income soon so we can both be F/T parents. It's nice to offer a service to be able to help Americans afford Healthcare, legal services, ID theft protection and other day to day expenses!

    Best wishes with all of your WAH ventures as well!!

  • What ideas or advice are you looking for? Anything in particular you want to know? I set up accounts for a company that is backed by the BBB and US Chamber of Commerce. I've been home with my girls for over 3 1/2 years now. I was able to leave my job as a nurse.

  • I have a home business with Arbonne. Best decision I ever made. It is supplementing family income until it reaches the point where it will be my family's income. The coolest thing is that I can Will it to my kids if something should happen to me...that's a great insurance policy.
