$500 a month question..

That's how much more $$ we need to bring in to be "ok". I'd love to work from home (to not have to pay for childcare), but do not want to sell anything over the phone. Honestly I'd like to be able to do it strictly over the internet, sales or whatever. Preferrably not sales if possible. My question is do any of you know a good way I could do this and bring in a minimum of $500 per month? Thank you moms!

  • i would babysit, pick your hours carefully, i did from 5:30 am till 6:30 Pm sounds long but at 5 am they go back to sleep with two children at say 80 a week that's 160 a week x 4 640 a month :) and you're little one will have some playmates!

  • You'll have to decide what kind of work is best for you (babysitting, selling stuff online, etc)... but you could ALSO clip coupons, buy generic products, get rid of some of your luxuries (we don't have a house phone or cable TV), etc.

  • I found a product that I think sells itself. It is called eeFuel and it is a Fuel Enhancer. We have been using it both our vehicles for about a week and we like it. I am just going to put magnets on the back of each vehicle and put business card dispensers on each vehicle. People can order from my website or enroll as well. Simple as that.
    Doesn't everyone want to save on gas?
    Average improvement is 12 to 25% or more.

    Here is our website:
    Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

    In less than 1 week I have made some personal sales to people at work already and we have quite a few other people who are interested and are waiting for our MPG results after a tank or two.
    Good luck!
