I started couponing and it's been saving us about $100/week on groceries. That's like having a job!

I am able to work when my kids are napping and in the evening if necessary. Such a huge blessing from God to be able to be home with my kids and still earn some extra money!

I clean houses 1-2 days a week. I make 15-20 dollars an hour and work 5-6 hours a day. My mom watches my daughter, so they get time together and no child care fees!

Wow you are so lucky to have your mum look after your little one. The cost of daycare makes it pointless for me to work for the time being.

If you can find a legitimate job working from home do it. Daycare, typing, proofreading etc... I am a work at home mom. I am a hanwriting analyst and do forensic document work from my home office as well as personal analysis for people struggling with issues in their life. I also do geneological profiles from people's ancestors handwriting as well as transcribing old hard to decipher handwriting. I schedule appointments with lawyers and clients while my kids are at school and can adjust my work schedule for PA days, school trips etc... I have the best of both worlds can be there for my children and still maintain my income. Working from home does take a lot of discipline to meet deadlines etc.. and sometimes means working late at night after the kids are in bed.

Another way to save money if you aren't working or getting a form of paycheck is to shop at second hand stores, especially those that swap store credit for your kids outgrown clothes, shop frugally for groceries, sales and coupons etc. cutting out some household expenses. like running the waher/dryer during off peak times, line drying clothes, turning off tv's less lights etc... it all add up to savings. good luck.

I also run my own company from home. Its http://www.SarahsFleeces.co.uk

We make quality fleece garments that keep you warm whatever the weather!

I have a team of up to 12 people who all sew for me from their own homes.

We:-

- Save you money - turn your heating down whilst wearing our thermals
- Help the environment - our polar fleece is partially made from recycled water bottles
- Help our economy - all our garments are 100% made in England

Having said all that running your own business is not necessarily an easy thing as it demands alot of time, money and attention. It can be very addictive so you have to set your boundaries of when and where you're going to work very early on or it can be a slippery slope to eating up all your time, thoughts and energy!

I was watching the Today show and saw an ad for a company called Taskrabbit (www.taskrabbit.com). You essentially sign up to do various tasks for people.. From grocery shopping to mailing products, pick up dry cleaning. I applied for it but am not an employee. Just wanted to share with you.

There is NO START UP FEE!!!! All these companies that expect 200 and more, it's insane. I look at it like "if I had an extra $200 I wouldn't be looking for a job!"

Best of luck!!

Oh one other thing they said was make sure you check out company they gave 2 sites Jobitorial.com and glassdoor.com. They also said companies that require you pay to work for them are typically a scam. So beware!

I became a Team Beachbody Coach (makers of P90X, Insanity, Brazilian Butt Lift, Shakeology, Hip Hop Abs, Body Gospel, Slim In 6, to name a few) after having my daughter. It allows me to workout with fitness support, eat healthy, & earn income. I stay home with my 5 kids (single I might add) and anyone can do it. There's complete training online to grow your business. So it's the best... fitness & health, time with my family, and income to support us all. You're even provided 3 websites that are maintained and consistently updated by Beachbody. It's cool too because when my kids see me working out & encouraging others to do the same, they want to join me. My son's teacher is one of my team members ;). Let me know if that is something that you'd be interested in. You can't get rich quick, but the long run potential is amazing.

I just joined ItWorks Global. They have the most amazing product I've ever tried, a detoxifying body wrap that literally can change your body! I've recently started taking their supplements as well and the weight that I've gained over the past few years is melting away. It's so easy to sell, so much fun to kick start the change in lifestyle for other people and the company is A+++, their compensation plan rocks!

Now is the time to join an MLM according to NBC's Morning Show hosts, Dave Ramsey, and David Kiyosaki. This is company is pretty new so it's an awesome time to get in. You can check it out at

I am a stay at home mom with another one on the way. I have searched the internet for ways of making some extra cash from home with little success. Then I came across a legitimate system that is making me money everyday. It's a pretty basic concept: fortune 500 companies are looking for people to test their products... and that's where we come in. All I do is refer people to these companies to try out their product. If they like it great, if not, that's ok... either way they pay me.
I have always been skeptical of those online schemes that "make you money" but I found this one actually works! It's so easy to do and is absolutely free. You have nothing to lose. Check out the introductory video to get more information... I'm really glad I did! Get started here:http://instantpaydaynetwork.com/jac031

I began my journey as an It Works Distributor four months ago! Right from the start I began contributing to the family income while being able to stay at home with my three children. The opportunity came to me at a time when I was about to have to look for work outside of my home. I was so relieved to have been presented with this opportunity because I really dreaded leaving my kids. Not only do I make a good income now, I also get to help people with their health/fitness goals! I can honestly say I love my job! I don't have to worry about sacrificing time away from my children anymore. This mommy has gone from a stay-at-home mom to a work-at-home mom. My hours are flexible to suit my kids' schedule. I love not being confined to a desk from 9-5. If you are like me and are looking for a job that is flexible, fun, and can give you financial freedom--check out my website www.slimdowntoday.myitworks.com! Here you can look at my company website and check out the products we offer. There is also a place to join if you decide this job fits you!

Yeah, it sure is a problem to find a legitimate company that hires SAHMs. Scam is everywhere :( And those companies that hire usually require a lot of training and nearly full time work which is impossible for a mom with a little kid. Seems that other extra income sources like crafting, secret shopping etc. are more reliable even though less profitable. I've also heard that a lot of moms make some nice money with reselling thrifted clothing. If you have enough time to dig for thrifted treasures in local thrift stores, then you can afterwards snap them, upload on Instagram, connect IG account to Inselly (that's a marketplace for IG users) and sell them there with some reasonable profit. I know it works for many women, so worth at least giving a try. And yes, TaskRabbit is also great as you can choose only those tasks that perfectly match your daily schedule and preferences.

I have my own Virtual Customer Service business (http://www.StarksEnterprises.Us) We offer customer service for major companies through email, chat and telephone all from the luxury of home. Many of these companies are Fortune 500 companies (Cruise lines, travel companies, tax software, roadside assistance association, etc). You get to pick the company, the days & the hours that you work. You schedule your shift in 30 min intervals. If you have a child that only does a half day at school, no problem. Work from 8am-12pm and then again when you put them to bed at night from 8pm-11pm or not. That's the beauty of it, It's YOUR choice. I love the flexibility and freedom that this job offers me. I have three children and I never have to miss a school play, class trip, recital, competition or anything else that we have going on. This job allows me to spend quality time with my family and have a stable income.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO:
1.) Recruit family members and friends to join to make money off them and who they enlist.
2.)Do any Telemarketing
3.) Do any Cold Calling
4.) Buy a product with the hopes of reselling it to make money
Can you tell that I speak from experience? I have tried all of those other companies that have you invest $200+ and then want you to harass your family and friends to make money. Not fun and I didn't find it to be profitable.

How would you enjoy a life with:
I.) No commute
2.) Little or no child care expense
3.) Spending less time and money at the gas pump
4.) Having to prepare/pickup your lunch and scarf it all down in 30 minutes
5.) Having to spend less money on lunch
This is legitimate employment with a tremendous earning potential ($9-$19 hour). It's perfect for busy parents, college students, retirees and anybody that's just looking to make money on their terms. Check us out:
