I'm needing to make some extra money. I would get a full time job, but I go to school and look after my kids after daycare now. Any good ideas?

  • Ever think about having a home based business? Direct selling (with great work ethic & tenacity) would allow you to continue with your studies, have time for your children and become a business owner. The tax benefits and profits can be amazing but first do some research and discover what you are passionate about- what will continually motivate you because when times get tough it's that passion that keeps you moving forward to success. Good Luck!

  • Sell your kids outgrown toys and clothes on ebay....use some of the money made to go to thrift stores to buy name brand good condition kids and adult clothes to sell. I do this and average about $120 a week in profit

  • I clean an office on weekends. It's super flexible, I choose the hours, and I can choose to take as many jobs as I want. I got my start by putting an ad up online.

    It doesn't have to be that though- you could sew on a button, teach a piano lesson, shovel a drive way, mow a lawn etc. You'll find that the most flexible jobs are the ones that you create for yourself. Find something you're good at and start putting ads up online and at grocery stores.

    Good luck!
