  • I run my own home based bakery, I bake for holidays, birthday's, baby showers, parties...As for cutting back, I have started a menu of sorts, I went through the seven days of the week and picked a meat for each 7 days, so my hubby and the kids know what we are having every night. Monday is Chicken, Tuesday is Hamburger, Wednesday is Pasta, Thursday is Beef (no burger), Friday is Fish, Saturday is Pizza, and Sunday is Pork. That has cut down immensely on our grocery bill, we have stopped running places, cancelled the smaller things that we don't need, and doubled the payments on the bills to get most of them paid off within the next couple months. If gas prices keep rising I'll be cutting back even more.

  • I do online currency trading, but I don't end up coming out in front all the time. I'm hoping as I get a better feel for it, it might become profitable in the long run.

  • I live 35 miles from the nearest town. I am not sure if Mary Kay or the Gift Baskets would do too well around here. I appreciate all the answers from everyone. What is currency trading? As for the bakery thing, I just started making cakes and cupcakes and I have sold a few from home. That is something that I can and will do to make some extra cash, but like I said, I live so far out of town that it is hard to get customers. Thanks everyone and keep the answers coming!!!

  • I do all of my money making online. I work with a company called PrePaid Legal and it's scam free, and has been that way since it has been up and running (almost 4 decades). Coupons, get rid of your bundle package and only use what you need (crazy right), but you can get some phone services like majic jack for 40 bucks a year, leave your lights off as often as possible and stuff like that.

    But, if you're interested in making some SERIOUS money online, I would be happy to share my business with you. Does an extra 1,000-5,000 a month sound good to you?

  • I work from home - i do most of my business online or by phone - I started out as a customer with Melaleuca - the products are wonderful and I really saved - just by buying my home and personal care products here, I was able to reduce my monthly financial expenses! All I do is tell people how much I love this online store and their products and help them to set up their account and start shopping if they want to - its very simple and the money is real. I feel great knowing that I am helping people save money and get out of debt while helping myself and my family!
    Please contact me for more information - there is no risk or obligation to just take a look.
    I hope to hear from you.
