  • I work 24 hours per day, 6 days per week, 52 weeks per year. I run a daycare out of my house, so I do that 12 hours per day and that's the only financial compensation I get.

    Don't get my wrong, I love staying home with my own children--they are easy--but having OTHER kids is a dirty job and after expenses, I earn a whopping $1.00 per hour. Yay me, glad I got that MS degree.

  • I work AT home...Laundry, dishes, house cleaning. haha
    I tend our garden, my chickens, the cows, soon we'll be adding a milk cow. I figure these things save us money on groceries and whatnot. Plus they keep me active. I crochet and will be looking in the farmer's market this summer. Sometimes I babysit a friend's little boy.

  • Once in a whle I sell on eBay, do surveys or the rare mystery shop. Really though I just volunteer at my kids' schools and try to keep my preschooler busy and active.

  • I sell on ebay, run a web design service and create teaching printables that I sell. I also homeschool our kids and I write unit studies for them, when those work really well I sell those too.

  • Yes, I do PrePaid Legal, it brings in a nice income and allows me some financial freedom and breathing room .

    And like all the others, cook, clean, dishes, laundry, etc. :-)
