  • Well living in a small town and not wanting to be with a direct selling company you could apply to online jobs......look for Sabrina and her link (Sabrina, lol hope you're here to post it) to online jobs....I personaly don't know if any are good steady money makers, but doesn't hurt to apply to ones you think you are qualified for.

    You can do something else locally such as run errands for elderly and those unable to get around, clean houses, watch kids - either as a daycare or babysitting, you can make and sell crafts online and in your area or you can sell things on ebay and craigslist....ebay will give you a much larger audience.

  • Make a list of your passions and the things you are interested in. Also make a list of what is lacking in your area. Maybe there is a niche that needs filled and you can fill it.

    This is what I do from home....also in a small town. There are even a few number of other reps here...but I've been able to keep making money every month. I'm happy to help with anything if this is something you might be interested. Best of luck.

  • It's not a survey site or a work at home thing, but I do swagbucks. It's a search bar you download, use their search engine to search (I use it when I want to go from site to site too for extra chances to win!)
    You earn "Swagbucks" to redeem for prizes, including gift cards and cash on Paypal! Easy to use, easy to earn and really pays! I get about $25 a month in giftcards! So, it's something you can do doing what you already do, using the internet, to save for a little extra cash, gifts for holidays or birthdays! No spam!
