Im due in 3 months and starting my maternity leave in september, I know babys gonna come in no time and the bills will still have to be paid along with the expenses of having a newborn, what is a good way to make some extra income while im home with a new one. I'll be receiving income support for the time being but anybody on income support knows it'll only cover rent and the basics. I would like to have a little extra income for the little extras you need in life and would like ideas on how to go about that?? Any ideas???

I found selling Partylite has been really easy. Especially in the fall and winter. It is candle sales and pamper me stuff. When I was off on Mat leave my husband and I picked 2 nights a week for me to go to shows and he would be at home with the baby. (a break for me and bonding time for him) I made about $100 a night and no pressure or quotas from the company. No big sign up costs either. I am pregnant again and am plan on doing it again.

Congratulations Charmaine,
Well I clean a couple of ladies houses once a week. This gives a little time out of the house and you can make some quick cash. Sometimes I bring my little guy with me and they play with him as I work or my sister watches him. They are neighbors so you don't have to go far. Another thing is getting into a home based business like Gold Canyon, Tupperware, Usborne Books, Monavie, Close To My Heart, Victorian Epicure. These businesses do require time away from home by hosting parties, going to trade shows and workshops. Alot of my girlfriends do these and they love it. I guess its whatever you feel confortable doing and don't jump into something right away. You will NEED some space with your little one. I started after about 3 months. Hope this helped you

Hi Charmaine,
Congrats on your upcoming bundle of Joy. When are you due? I am due Sept. 24th with my 4th baby and can't wait. As a busy mommy of 3 kids ages 5 and under, I wanted to come home and be a full time mommy, but I couldn't afford it. That was until I found our Work At Home United Team. I love being connected with this team of other moms and dads from all over and all walks of life. We have partnered with an established, 24 y/o, debt free, Inc. 500, International Wellness Company with an "A" rating with the Better Business Bureau and multiple awards. I love not having to sell, stock, or deliver products, no billing/collection of money, and there is no large investment like there are in so many other companies out there. Our Work At Home United Team provides Free Websites, Free Training, and Unlimited Mentoring/support. I love staying home now, and being able to work around my small kiddos schedules, like naptimes and bedtimes. I love what I do! If you would like more info please visit: www.Enhancingfamilies.com

Go online and google work from home. You will find tons of companies (some good and some bad so make sure to investigate them) that are needing workers from home.
