  • Ive been a sahm off and on for 19 yrs and have yet to find anything worth my while to do. I have babysat for friends to get extra spending money, sold avon (which I hated) and tried tupperware (which wasnt worth it to me either). I finally just went back to college and got a degree instead.

  • I'm an Independent Distributor with a Gourmet Candle Company. I don't know to many SAHM/WAHMs that actually work a "real" job from home, only direct sales/home party plans/own business.

  • I work a full time job and an "at home job". Most work at home jobs won't totally replace a day job. Not unless you're running a full time business, which is a day job! lol.. I work for several companies online that help me pay extra bills and pay down my massive student loan debt. You can see what I do at:

  • I am a home business owner with Ameriplan. I do promotion of the business opportunity and the Dental/Medical Benefits Plans. I work about 90% from home either online or over the phone and I only ever speak to those that are actually interested... The other 10%ish is the two hours a week I spend putting out flyers talking to local charities, apartment managers or schools... I love what I do and I make decent money...

  • I build websites mostly. Are you looking for a business or a job? Home businesses I can't help you with, but for a at home JOB, you can go to and click real work at home. No surveys/scams or MLM. Just the security of a weekly pay check. There are short term jobs and fun jobs and information on starting your own business.

  • the thing is i am going back to waitressing which is kinda unreliable money, i may have a good week and i may have a terrible week
    id like to try something that i can do from the internet that will bring in a definite $50 to $100 a week
    everything i keep running into i have to sign up and pay a fee or buy stuff, they just sound like scams. since my husband works full time i wont be able to get a second "real" job because i need to be home with my boys
    ive seen some good suggestions though, i just wanna check out what other people do and what my options could be
