 Was just wondering if anyone knew some SAHM work online that is REAL. Ive heard & seen so many scams out there. Just trying to help out with bills in my spare time. (hahah i chuckled as i wrote that. i have 3 children and one on the way i am a lil short on spare time) but i would like to help where i can so my DH isnt so overwhelmed that its just him. I know staying at home is a give and take, he drives 2 hours to work and same home, we see him for about an hour and a half then hes in bed. so its pretty much just me for everything else even paying the bills. so i know where its coming and going. with his work schedule hard for me to go out and do something part time or while the kiddos are in school cause i have a 1 year old and one on the way so getting someone to watch the 1 year old, and someone hiring me at 6 months pregnant.

I'd like to know that info as well. I've read about some. One was a scheduling for a charity. For every pickup you schedule, you get paid a certain amount...though I couldn't find ip any in my area. They weren't very specific on what the actual job title was. Also, if you're crafty, you could try etsy or some other art selling site. Good luck to you. Hope you find something.

I've been looking for years and have never found anything beyond a scam. If you find an answer, I would love to know!

It's plenty of things you can do from home to generate some cash. What kind of gig are you looking for?  Let's start there.

I, too, would like to know of some real, honest, work from home opportunities.  Maybe you should start your own post to help us all out?  (I would prefer some kind of data entry....nothing where I need to be on the phone or selling of anything.)  Sounds like you know something we don't......please share!  ; )

If you spend a lot of time on CafeMom, you might want to check out Postloop.

You basically get paid to join random discussion forums (many are just starting up) and contribute to the discussion. (Very much like CafeMom, but many are not as well laid out because they are new.) The average pay is $0.10 per post, but it can be more than that. You cash out through PayPal when your account reaches 100 points which is the same as $5.

I typically check in every couple of days and do it while I'm sitting in front of the TV at night. I think in the last 6 months I've probably cashed out close to $100 (maybe $10 a week). I mean, it isn't much, but trust me, it isn't much work either.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Follow the link to join.
  2. Sign up under an email address (hint: probably don't use your primary email address).
  3. Make 10 conversation posts in the "Postloop Portal." This is your "application" to be accepted to the main dashboard. You will get paid for these posts, but more importantly, these will be the posts your first "rating" will be based on. The higher your rating (from 1-5), the more points you get per post. You don't have to be obnoxious or wordy. Just make sure you have good grammar (shorthand and emoticons are totally okay), speak English, and sound natural. Cafemom is actually a good practice place. If you are normal here, they will like you there.
  4. Once you've been approved, join different discussion boards from the Dashboard page, and start earning points by posting. Most discussion boards allow up to 5 posts per day. Some allow for more. The more discussion boards you join, the more points you can earn in a day.
  5. Cash out via paypal when you reach 100 points.

If you are killing time anyway, you might as well get paid to do it. Feel free to PM me with any specific questions.

If you had the opportunity to have your own business would you do it?

Swagbucks is a website where you can earn Swagbucks. (which are basically pennies) You can earn several hundred a day. You redeem them for gift cards. I redeem mine for $5 Amazon gift cards. 

It sucks, and I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone... But there are several ways to earn these points.. and it adds up. That's all that I know online.
