working from home

The idea of having a little extra cash each week sounds good but I have a 2 year old home with me everyday and my hubby is in the navy. We don't really want her in daycare because it just seems like I would be working just to pay for daycare. So, does anyone have any ideas of how I can make money from home?

  • Keeping my children out of daycare was my sole reason for wanting to have a home-based business. There are lots of things to create a source of income for you and your family. Are you looking for a JOB or an entreprenurial business with more control?

  • Well there are alot of direct sales companies- Mary Kay, Avon, Pampered Chef, Discovery Toys, Stampin Up, candle sales, tupperware..... They allow you to be home and set up parties around your own schedule. Some cities might have data entry companies that allow workers to work at home--- I would call companies direct and NOT answer an add in the newspaper on this (alot of the paper ads are scams!). What about babysitting in your home? Good luck.

  • I supplement my hubbies income with Tupperware. I LOVE IT!! i work with Many moms on cafemom as well so distance isn't a huge factor. I love what I do and I love the product. Especially with the economic crunch everyone loves Tupperware because it's an amazing product.

    I'd love to tell you more just contact me for additional info.

  • I am a Slumber Parties consultant, and get paid every week, because I do at least 1-3 parties a week. Parties of this sort are easy to get, in contrary to other companies--I make 200-500 per party, never less than that- We have a kit sale that ends Oct 31st.
