  • Maybe start being a consultant for one of those party businesses. They don't seem to be too time-consuming and now there are TONS of different kinds of products available.

  • I am a full time SAHM. I earn my income doing a lot of different things. I am an independent rep with Wildtree, I usually do between 1 and 3 in home tastings a week - so I'm away up to 6 or 8 hours sometimes. I am also a "team member" with BigCrumbs. Which is totally done from home. Just advertise and when people shop you earn a small commission.

  • I earn Amazon Cards (but you can get cash) through SwagBucks. And I am a full time Blogger which allows me to earn when Google Ads are clicked or through the more than 30 affiliate accounts I have with different companies and websites.
    In addition I am in the process of starting my own online shop selling cloth diapers, mens. pads, breast pads and even cloth diaper cakes that I make at home.

  • There are also home jobs available. I have a list on my website BUT, I am in the process of sorting through it, there are lots of dead links and closed opportunities there. I will be reposting the new revised list on my blog within the week.

  • 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.

  • Cleaning houses or businesses is a great way to make extra cash. I used to do that.
    Do you know how to sew? That may be a neat project to get into.
    Do you have a writing ability? Try your hand at writing children's books, poetry, or even the next best seller.
    If you don't mind having extra kids in the house, try baby sitting a few days a week.
