I know this has basically been asked, it's about a good stay at home job that's not a rip off. Does anyone know anything about like data entry or even stuffing envelopes or anything like that?

  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!
    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.
    I had searched for a work at home job for two years. This had proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I'd come across were scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.
    I am so lucky to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!

  • I don't know what level of education you have, but I am a college student that tutors online classes for my school. I can do this completely from home. The money isn't great, but when you think about $600 in daycare that I'm saving a month and $200 in gas a month...it makes up for it. If you have your masters, you can teach online college classes from home...which is my goal eventually.

  • I am a ChaCha guide. cha cha is a human powered search engine(like google) It is a real jub, so you have to apply and take a few tests. It's alot of fun. I make around ahundred dollars a month, but i have firends who make more. You set your own hours and times..so it's really up to you. You get paid 20 cents a search and average search takes about 3 minutes. I enjoy it.

  • During your research for the right company, check the prospective companies with the Better Business Bureau...www.bbb.com. I considered the envelope stuffing gig but after reading what BBB had to say about this particular company, I realized it was a scam. Now I work from home with Melaleuca. www.companycredentials.com. Good luck!

  • I am really sorry to tell you this, but nothing comes without a price. Those ads pan out to be nothing.. I am telling you this from experience. Now, here is something you can try.. Call the telemarketing companies... call centers, etc.. sometimes they offer work that you can do from home. Ex: Culligan, etc...

  • I am on ChaCha as well, there is no fee to sign up for it, you have to download a program to your computer and take some tests. Had it not been for a friend telling me I would not have believed it. It isnt killer money but if you are just looking for a bit of extra cash it is nice.
