I am a stay at home mom and I really need to make money. So I am looking for ideas. Please no online survery taking stuff or gimmicks. I am just looking for ideas on easy ways to actually make money. I have some talents in crafting but can't think of what to do. I have tried ebay but don't make much at all and sometimes even lose money because the things I can make, like a scrapbooking page or handmade card, don't sell for much at all and after ebay and paypal take their percentage out it's more of a waste of time. I read a list before but I couldn't do most of the things it mentioned, such as newspaper delivery because of my baby or babysitting because I don't want to be responsible for someone else's child. Any suggestions?

You can always try avon or mary kay. Avon has websites you can give to your friends. They can shop online 24/7 and you make money. I would have said baby sitting for welfare but,you said no to this. You could make hundreds each moth on two kids. Foster care is another if you can't find anything else.

Are you talking about just making pocket money or are you in need of making money towards living expenses etc?

well i would really like to make money towards living expenses. thats why i mentioned that it doesnt have to be an online thing only because i know that is rare. my boyfriend i live with pays all the bills, except i pay my own car payment and cellphone bill and my parents pay my auto insurance because im still on their policy but feel bad about it and want my own. when my unemployment is over i dont want all my burdens to fall on my boyfriend since he isnt exactly rich himself! (or i would say just pay it for me ha ha!)

Ok this one is the best idea I have come across doing days and days of research. chacha.com is realistic and legitamite. They hire guides or expiditors so pretty much after you do like the 30 minutes of training classes you have one chance at the test and thats it f you pass. You sit around and answ uestions hat come in all day. Its simple and fun. you learn alot as you answer questions. your welcome.. Good luck in your search also try wallet boosters.com. They are full of rea work at home oppertunities. No scams her. Again good luck.

Hi Ambreya3, My situation is almost exactly like yours,so I heard about this, where you can make money by responding to posts and creating your own posts. At first, I thought this was a a scam too, but heard that a co-worker of my husband's get a check of pretty good money each month of doing just what we are doing. SO.....Hopefully it will work for us. I have been staying home for 9 years, I was home schooling my children, but just had to put them in public school. I need to get a teaching job, but haven't done so yet, and too need to make some money. So I am too interested in ways to make money at home, until I find a job. One thing I have done in my home with children there is to tutor other children after school or in the summer. I have made good money at this, but is not consistent, as people call and cancel out at the last minute or discontinue it altogether. Best wishes to you in finding something.

I will be honest with you there are so many ways to earn money being a stay at home mom. I think one thing you need to do is find something that you like and roll with it. For me I try to do many things online and I think sometimes I spread myself too thin with online earning. For example I am here at mylot now but have plans to do many other things online to earn today. I did add you as a friend and I would be more than happy to share with you some of what I do to earn via pm message. So when you get the chance send me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.

I know your situation.There are many young mommy who facing this problems.On one hand, they need to take care of their babies,on the other hand,they should go out for work to make money for the whole family. They usually do is give the babies to their parents or find a babysitting.Then they can earn, can pay the bill,can buy the things they want.So, it is up to you, if you want to get the money, you will lose something,such as getting along with baby...

Hi Ambreya, I work for Textbrokers doing writing assignments. They do pay, it is legitimate, and it will help you get through. You seem to be able to write well so I thought you might be interested. Here is the link but I don't know if they are hiring right at this moment, but you can try. It's ......www.textbrokers.com.....I AM NOT an affiliate of this site, I just work for them. It took me about 1 week before they contacted me and said I was hired, so hang in there. What will happen is they will give you a short assignment to write, then they grade you anywhere from 2-3-4-5, with 5 being professional writers. This bases your pay and they normally start people out at a 3, which you get paid $.01 per word. So, if you write a 500 word article, you get paid $5.00. After you are hired, you pick which assignment you want to do from their list, and if you don't want to do any, you wait until something comes up you'd like to do. They pay twice a month and you could make some decent money here, which is what I would imagine you're looking for. You need a Paypal account for your payments that are due to you. I've been paid numerous times, always on time with no problems at all. This is something you can do in your spare time, and when you have time. If you have any questions, just let me know, I'll be glad to answer them for you. You can also try Associated Content for writing. Both these sites take on new writers. I belong to both but haven't written anything yet for Associated Content, just been writing on Textbrokers. Good Luck!

I don't really know what is the best way to make money from home. Or you can certified to be one of the call center representatives, you absolutely got to be at home and look after your child. Or you go to school, and take those medical bill processor courses, which after a couple of months training and learning, you can process medical bills and take appointment for those doctors while you are still at home. It was just a couple of ideas.
