I am a single mother of a beautiful and absolutely amazing 14 month old girl. I wokr 40 hours per week and am going to school part time. I get some help from the state to help pay for daycare, since I get no child support. It is embarassing to sdmit what I'm going through, but once the rent is paid and the electric I am lucky if I have $100 left over a week for gas and food....I don't even have cable, and I'm using my friend's internet. There must be something I can do from home to make some extra money and not take time away from my daughter. Anyone had nay luck with avon or online survery's or anything like that??? They are probably all scams, bu I'm desparate and looking for honesty. Is it even possible to live off $100/week?

I am currently a stay at home mom. I started couponing while on maternity leave, which has saved my family hundreds of dollars. Also, taking survey online, there are a lot of great websites for that. Here's a few:

they are all 100% legit and I have earned extra cash from all three of those sites :)

Oh Amanda, I totally know what you're going through. I'm also a single mom of an 18mo. old boy and do not get any financial support from my ex.. I also work full time and feel like I'm just burying myself in debt and had to play the game of which bill was more important to pay first while the others waited. It's a horrible situation to be in but I know for me, I'm determined to do whatever I need to stay on top of things. I needed extra income on the side but did not want to spend another minute away from my son to earn it so I was researching for months for something to do from home. I tried the surveys & stuff but they either don't pay anything, pay only a few dollars or want you to sign up for a bunch of companies in order to get paid. It's not worth the time at all. I finally found two work from home opportunities that are totally legitimate and do give you the opportunity to earn whatever amt. of extra income you need along w/ flexible hrs.. You work whatever amt. of hrs. you feel necessary to earn the money. If you are interested in more info., message me and let me know and I would be glad to answer any questions or fill you in on more info.. I don't want to take up any more space on this post and there's a lot to tell you about each company. you can also visit my website at momceo.com/jallen.

Good luck in your search & hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Amanda...I completely feel for you. I know how things can be rough. My husband and our 13 month old daughter had to move in with my parents because we could no longer afford our place. I do a couple of things from home, and they are not scams because I get paid LOL

They do not take away from time with my daughter either because I do them when I want.

First off I have a home based business with an international wellness company, I help others convert their homes to greener healther homes by riding them of all the harmful chemicals like, cleaners, laundry, personal items, make up and body care products. I get to purchase these products at wholesale prices because they come straight from the manufactor. If you think you might be interested please message me, there is no investments or inventory or even parties you have to throw.

Also I have begun participating in focus groups, where companies pay for my opnion. You can do a google search and see what comes up. I am not sure where you live but I can send you the companies names that I use and then you can look them up and see if they are in your area. They pay like $50-$150 for each group..I made 300 bucks last week!

Best of luck to you and I hope I have provided some help for you :)
