  • I do childcare. Look at and see what might be there. Use the pulldown to see several categories of jobs. The closer you are to a city the better the opportunities.

  • You could check into Plasma Donation Centers in your area - there are certain health standards you must go by but it's worth looking into and you'll average about $55 a week if you donate twice a week.

  • Sell everything you can on EBAY and Craigslist. Reduce bills going out.

  • You can keep looking for a part time job, but yes in the meantime you can sell on ebay. I sell roughly 10-15 things a week and after fees I make about $100-$150 in profit. I used to make a lot more when I put my time into it....but you can start off selling outgrown clothes, toys, books and anything else in the house you no longer use....and once sold use some of that money to go shopping at thrift stores, yard sales, craigslist, etc to buy more things to sell.

    One example is the local Amvets thrift stores typicaly has kids Gymboree pieces for 79 cents to $1.79.....and I can resell them for $10-$15 each.

  • Work from home businesses and selling are eBay do not bring in a set weekly income. Only a job can do that.
