My husband works full time and I stay home for our four children whike attending online school. We are going to have nearly 15000 dollars by may of next year and wanting to move from kansas to Alabama. I need help figuring out good places to move to and would like to make some mommy friends too. Also I am saving every penny I can but we need more to be able to move next year. Help please?

How about daycare? You just need to find out the rules for your state. Depending on how many children you might not need to be certified. I am certified and do daycare part-time. I watch mainly older children since my four kids are all almost in elementary school. I do before/after school care and watch children on non-school days. Depending on your children's age it might be fun to have playdates for them. That is what it is like with my children, just one giant playdate. You could possibly watch children full time during the summer months like preschoolers, kindergarteners, or elementary age children depending again on what you are comfortable with. You can make decent money for the summer and see how much more you need and then go from there. There are a lot of sites on the internet that talk about home daycare and have forms that you can print out for free. The nice thing is if you do decide to claim the money then you can have write-offs like food, mortgage/rent, and other such things. I decided to do daycare since I have four. I figured what's a few more at that point.

I have an 18 month old and i am 35 weeks pregnant with another.
When i first gave birth to my son i started with a direct selling company called Partylite (uk and US). this gave me the opportunity to get out and meet new people, work little hours and around my own routine. It is a way to have your own business and you can really make as much as you want. There are other options here in the uk like Bodyshop, Enjo, Pampered Chef....

I no longer do this as i have my own business. If you have any idea this is the best way to make your own money, although it takes alot of time and dedication.
I am still in the process of creating my website, however the FB groups are a success - Yummy Mummies & Tots.

I hope you find something suitable for you and your family xx

I am not looking for a job. I just wanted to see if there are any other ideas such as babysitting or cleaning houses. I dont know I was not trying to encourage solicitation at all.
