I love all the spam you've gotten for replies. Has your husband tried to look for any jobs on craigslist? My husband does this and gets TONS of side work. We bring in an extra $3000 a month now. I mean it sucks that he works so much, but we're in the process of buying a second house, and we really need the extra money.

Hi Jadine I'm also staying home with my boys and loving every minute of it. I share the love of jewelry with lia sophia. I love the fact that there is no inventory to buy and the jewerly truly sells itself. Please feel free to check out my website My husband also just started a home based fitness business. He has been a police officer for 25 years and is getting ready to retire at age 44. Working with Beachbody has allowed him to stay fit and at the same time make money helping others. Please also feel free to check out his site at Good luck in your search.

I am a stay at home mom and have a 7 month old son. I joined The M.O.M. Team awhile back and I absolutely love it. I work with other amazing moms who are all very supportive and extremely helpful in training me to learn everything I need to know. The training is free and the support is unlimited!! I don't have to sell anything, keep inventory, or do parties. It is a very fun and flexible business and I love the fact that I can work when I want and still be there for my son. Check out my website I would love to talk to you and give you more info so you can do the same!!

We're in a similar situation. I tried a couple of "party" businesses (Discovery Toys and Mary Kay), but I found that without the outside connections I wasn't building my business enough. You can only sell so much to the same people. Now, my husband works during the day and then I wait tables at night. We don't get to see each other very often except for Hi's and Byes, but it means that my kids are always with one of their parents. Once my last starts school I will be looking for something with "Mothers' Hours" so I can be home when they get out of school and hopefully spend more time with my hubby too!

I do Arbonne. It's been a great way for me to supplement the household income while staying home w/the kids. We have so many great product lines, with new ones that were just released this month. I'd be happy to discuss the opportunity with you.

Try finding ways to economize at home. Find recipes with low cost healthy ingredients - lentils, beans, etc. If you have a talent, find a way to turn it into cash.
