  • Whenever I'm in need of extra money, I look to myself first, that is, cut out some fat from the budget. Even when I thought it was pretty bare-boned to begin with, I always surprise myself at how much more I can cut.

  • I work with high school exchange students, and local coordinators get paid to place students. You get to do it on your own time, and still have fun with the kids. I would love to give you more information if you are interested.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
