  • I do PrePaid Legal ... started a few months ago and I love it. It's a great full time income with part time work.

    No inventory, no parties, and they offer daily direct deposit. Within the next year, both my husband and I will be working solely on our PrePaid Legal business.

    Basically, PrePaid Legal does for attorney and legal bills what medical insurance does for doctors and medical bills. It's a great feeling to know that I am helping families protect their loved ones and giving them the power to protect their rights by being able to turn to their provider lawfirm ANYTIME they need to.

    I've tried doing other things, but they were either scams or just weren't ME! With PrePaid Legal I feel like I'm making a difference and helping people, not just selling them something. It's very rewarding.

    Good luck with whatever you choose. :-)

  • When I was a stay at home Mom, I didn't bring in extra income, other than a garden; but, I did get very good at stretching the food dollar. I learned to serve nutritious, delicious meals for little. You can take powdered milk (which by itself is awful), mix it up and pour it into whole milk, half and half by measure. This really was a lot cheaper than whole milk and when chilled, is very good. Using coupons for grocery purchases also saved a lot. So, even though I didn't pull in any extra money, I saved a LOT.

  • I am an Independent Consultant with Scentsy!

    I just love how we use warmers and that there isnt a flame since I have such small children. We have over 80 different scents to choose from as well as other products that are scent related!

    They make great gifts!

    Just this week our company donated over 100,00 Scentsy Buddies to Toys for Tots! Our president was on the Today Show.

    I've tried doing other things at home that just didn't work out for me but since I loved the Products first I figured why not sell them and make money buying stuff I love!

    Here is my website in case you are interested in learning more about Scentsy:

    Also if you find that Scentsy isn't right for you, I encourage you to look at being a Host! We have different Host Rewards that are Awesome!

    Good luck on your Journey!

  • Well, I think it all depends on what you are looking for. Do you want to do direct sales like all the above moms suggested? If not, then you may want to consider going into business for yourself doing some sort of freelance work or selling on Ebay.

  • I just started using this website called I watch tv commercials on the site. It is totally free and it just launched. I watched 15 commercials from 15 sec to 1 min long. I have not gotten any cash from it yet but I figured what the heck I sitting in front of the computer all day anyway why not try this and see if it works. It really costs nothing to join and watch. I have never put my credit card info or any bank info on the site. They pay you through paypal. Just thought you might want to try it. Here is my link. If you join my village I get money when you watch commercials too, and when you sponser people you make money when they watch. It is a really cool idea... wish I had thought of it. Just try it! I had nothing to lose, any little bit helps when you are out of work like I am
