Does anyone work at home?

Other than the usual, I know you work at home. But I'm wondering about stuffing envelopes or something like that. I would like to know how to get started without wasting my money.

  • 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.

  • 100% of the envelope places are scams. They just want your money, not the other way around. There are some legit ways to make money at home (without paying out money). I have a couple of good sites listed here: Earn Money Online I'm not going to tell you that you can buy a vacation house, but you can earn some extra money to help your budget without getting scammed!

  • There are some things you can do out there to make some quick cash.. it's not going to get you rich, but it's tedious little task jobs.  You can work as a Turk for the Amazon Mechanical Turk program.  It's free... just make sure you only enter in to find the jobs that pay 1.00 or more.  Also if you have an iPhone, there is a program called Field Agent.  It's similar to a merchandising/survey job.  You find simple surveys in your area.  You do have to go into the stores though to complete them.  But, it's simple  I earned $11.00 just for taking a picture of the HBA section of Walmart.    I have other ideas and opportunities at Mavi's Home Work.

  • I agree. Those are scams. Check any company with the BBB before going with them.
