I'm a stay at home mom and there are a few things I do to bring in some extra money. There are a few different internet sites where I am able to make a little bit of money. You can check out my profile for info on those sites. Also, I tutor students in the evenings when my husband comes home from work. It is nice to be able to do that. I enjoy working and using my brain a some for the math problems. It is also nice to have a little extra money as well. What about you? Do you do anything little to make some money on the side?

I'm a SAHM and it seems there isn't much that I've found for work on the computer that has paid. I really need to figure something out because $$ is very tight here as I'm sure it is for a lot of families. Thanks for the ideas on your profile. I'll be checking them out and open to any advice anyone can give me 'cuz I'm very eager t get some work.

That's great. By a Chacha guide do you mean you teach dance?

hi rachel, Nice to hear frm u .I was working wt a mnc,n people thought I was crazy to chuck off ,everything to look af my kid. I was really feeling very guilty to leave him alone. So now I am a SAHM , I AM VERY HAPPY... Though sometimes people make me feel that I am wasting my education... I am thinking of doing something sitting at home. But there r so many scams in internet that it is very diff to decide which one is really genuine....

When I was a stay at home mom, I used coupons and I considered that a contribution to the income as it saved money. Many stay at home moms are made to feel that they are not making a contribution to the family income. I disagree. They are saving by not having to hire a baby sitter. They are saving by not having to hire a maid. They are saving by not having to eat out every night. So in my opinion, stay at home moms are bringing in $ every day that they stay at home.

I'm actually supposed to sale MaryKay which would have been my money on the side, but I have a job that came up that is enabling me to stay @ Home & do Transcription work & make a awesome income so I'm very happy!! It seems like everything I have tried or done-- doesn't even amount to much to do it so I'm fortunate for his opportunity.

I'm also a stay-at-home mom and I just recently started working as a ChaCha guide to bring in some extra money. And of course I've started posting on here! I've also been thinking of trying out associated content and constant content as I've heard some pretty good things about them.

I currently work full time, but I'm trying to get bills caught up so that I can cut back, then eventually quit. So, I've been doing some proofreading online in the evenings. It's not much, but it helps us out each month. I'm hoping by summer time to be able to cut back to part time so that I have more time with my girls this summer.

If it can't be done from home than I really don't have time. Heck I don't have time even if it can be done from home. I am taking my oldest 2 back & forth to school fomr 8:30-3:00. I also have a 5 week old at home. Then the nights are filled with homework, baths & such.

I'm not a mum but if you're into writing you could try posting some work on constant-content.com - it's free to submit stuff and I have made over $500 and counting to date... Well worth a try! They are quick to pay once you reach the $50 threshold as well.

I am working on mylotting all day to make money, being in a third world country right now, any earnings from here is good. I also resell things I buy from the US, like Victoria Secret and Bath and Body Works. From time to time, I check out what's on sale or ask people around here if they want to order something and I charge them a fee to buy it for them. I spent $400 last year on some perfumes and things and I'm still making money up to this day from those things I bought from the US. Sometimes it helps when I'm really broke too.

mowing lawns and doing some handy work is good way to earn money also cutting and selling firewood can end up in a hefty bunch of money if you are able to transport it. I think though crafts would be the best way just find a person who takes them to the flea market and make them for that sale.
