I'm not going to work until DS is old enough for daycare, but would like to have some income for savings. What do you SAHMs do to make some extra money?

Prostitution mostly.

I did phone sex for a bit. Easy money, but very strange to do.



I also did at home day care for a little bit, but it drove me nuts! My dad gives plasma and gets a good chunk of money doing that, but it hurts like a b***h.

I craft.
But, your child technically is old enough for daycare at 6-8 weeks. Most daycares, at least that I've known, take infants that young.
My plan was to be SAHM until Heathen started school, which would be next year. But, I've found myself hosting a parasite again, so it will be another 5 years before I work again.

There are very few credible jobs from home out there unless you have a degree or certification. Even less if you don't.

I made good money with Pampered Chef, but it got to be more than I wanted. I also was a preschool teacher at a homeschool co-op once a week. I won't be returning there this year though, because this fall I will begin to babysit a baby 35 hours a week.

You could work from home. Graphic design, DIY and sell it on etsy.

I budget well and also am in school. The plan is to start my own business from home when the kids are older.

I clean houses. I live in a resort town and a lot of people rent their houses out for the week and I have two that I clean weekly for $120 each. Each house takes about four hours. Only problem is that it's seasonal, though I do have a couple people that I clean for randomly in the off season. it really works well for me...my LO is only four month-old now but as she gets older I'll take on more houses

Weird OT question, perhaps, but do you blog? The way you word things is so cool. Cracks me up and I notice them every time you post.

photography and ebay. interesting combo but I've made good money. I do garage sales once or twice a year too that brings in a good amount to help. It's not usually a weekly pay but it comes in when we need it most
