  • Go check out my page. I know a lot of people are concerned about survey sites, but I have been doing it for a few months and my SO has been able to cut down almost 15 hours a week. It takes a few months to really get going with them, but it is well worth it. Message me if you have any questions!

  • I have an in home day care (15 years now). My husband got laid off in August and it's been a Godsend. It has been many many times in the past 15 years. Since 9/11 my husbands job has been really rocky. Scary times! Right now he does odd jobs so I pay most of the bills. I make $790. per week.

  • Like I have said before, you can start your own home business. There are sooo many ideas from event planning, babysitting, tutoring, catering, errand service, pet sitting. I even have friends that do laundry and ironing. Be creative. Start checking what is a need in your area. I usually go to Craigslist, look under the Resume section at the bottom and see what others are advertising in my area...

  • I sent a more detailed message that wouldnt fit here to you but here is the tidbits

    *childcare and before and after school programs if you live near a school or travel to one to get your own kids
    *Mystery shops
    *Craigslist (search gigs for temp, one time work, also search jobs for focus groups but beware of scams, advertise house cleaning, childcare)
    *Online Surveys are just a few...
    *Join and work for chacha from home (phone texting and answer company)
    Message me for more info on any of these :-D.

  • I program for the web and do affiliate marketing. Both create much income, but not everyone's cup of tea. My website was featured on the evening news as a trusted site which helps moms find REAL work at home jobs. If you want information go to and clike real work @ home jobs or and click the big green button which reads @ Home Jobs, you can't miss it.

  • I am a stay at home mom of four boys and I am an Uppercase Living demonstrator. This is a home party business. Each party really only last about 2 hrs and it serves as my relaxation time away from the hustle and bustle of kids, cooking, cleaning, etc... You do not have to throw party or have someone throw parties to receive your commission either, you are able to sell directly from your own website too. Visit to see more info
