Getting shut down on every side...what do I do?!

So here's the story in a nutshell, married almost 5 years, supposed to go to Mexico for anniversary, living in an apartment with 2 cats and 2 1/2 yr old boy, saving for house.

My husband was laid off his full time job, now working at apartments pt, old boss pt, and picking up odd jobs. Because of this we had to cancel our Mexico trip AGAIN and were told by our mortgage company that we would not qualify until he gets a full time job because they don't consider pt (making almost the same as full time) a credible work history. We just found a house and were prepared to make an offer. I do not blame my husband, but I am frustrated with the economy and he is being a little picky on the work he applies for. He was presented with this great opportunity to work with a wind turbine company, stay out - $16-18 starting - 70 hrs a week, he would make almost double what he was at ft with old job. Problem is they keep moving the send out date farther and farther back.

I have been playing with the idea of selling for Slumber Parties because I like them and they seem to be well known, however there are start up costs. I have a full time job, but just need some more ideas on some extra money I can make and hopefully some opinions on my situation.

Thank you,

Sales is a good way to make some extra cash but of course there is extra work involved. I had the same dillema when I got laid off from my previous job, then luckily I landed this one and still wanted a part time job because I was in the same position, trying to buy a house. I started selling AVON, but I have to be honest with you, I don't do very much to promote the business and really don't make much off it. The start up fee was only $10 though and the woman who I started under has a ton of business she has been doing it for years and I'm sure she makes a killing. Good luck!
