    What are some ways I can work from home that really WORK?!

    I would love to have experience stories added or something to kinda show me it really does work. I'm very pressed for cash, I have a 4 month old daughter, and I lost my job a little while ago. I am going to be going to college in about a week and I have to be at home with my daughter, since my boyfriend works 3rd shift and can't really watch her and sleep at the same time. I can't afford babysitters and my family is too far from me. Please help!

    You should check into daycare through the human services office in your state/county. It sounds like you might be eligible for no copay (based on your income). Is thre someone you know who is also a stay at home mom who could watch your child? What about a neighbor you trust? An aunt or cousin who could come stay with you for a while? Someone from your church? Call a local teacher and ask her for a recommendation. Good luck!

      With me going to college it is hard to get a job that will coincide with someone watching my daughter. I have been looking into things like that, but I am in the process of moving and this will not work as much as I wish it would.

    My girlfriend makes sugar glider accessories for money. This is as easy as suing a few hours a day to easily replace a 7-10 hr work day. If you can make quality work of any type you can work from home. I am a telemarketer that also works from home making a killing. I do not even have to leave my home working any of my 3 jobs currently.

      I have always wondered this, how do you become a telemarketer? I have heard of many people doing this, but I have no idea how to become one.

    You could try babysitting other kids while you are at home.. kinda like a home daycare.

    What year are you in College?  I know that at University here in Canada, there are paid positions for professor's assistants in marking tests and essays.  You could find out if there is anything like that there.  If your college has a student help centre you could talk to someone there about your situation and they might be able to suggest something.

    Are you getting loan money to go to college? If so, your assessment was probably based on your income when you were working, call your loan provider and get them to re-evaluate the amount you will be receiving for school because your circumstances have changed.

    How long were you working?  Check to see if you qualify for any unemployment insurance payments since you lost your job.  Here in Canada you have to have worked for a certain amount of hours, but its cumulative over a year or longer.  I'm not sure if they have something like this in the States, but if they do, I would look into it.

    As for other jobs that actually pay decent from home, I have yet to find any.  The few women I know who are lucky enought to work from home are able to through the companies they work for, one lady works for an insurance firm from home 20 hrs a week, others are IT related and can do most of their work from home on their laptop like my husband does. 

    Perhaps someone out there can suggest a site that is legit for you, I appologize that I don't know any.

      My finace works night shift so having kids at the house probably wouldn't be the best thing at the moment. I am in my 2nd year of college. I can not get unemployment, and I'm at my limit with finacial aid. Thanks though I appreciate it.

    You could buy clearance items and try reselling them online for more money. This works pretty good if you familiarize yourself with prices.

      I could do that, but I'm afraid if I go and buy clearance things they won't sell and I am stuck with stuff that I can't get rid of.

    As what renegadetory  recommend is to baby sit. You have a 4 month old baby so a 4 to 6 year old girl is ideal, for she could manage to go to the toilet alone. At this age they love babies and enjoy to help watching and playing with the baby. Or you could have a baby but this might be hectic. You could baby sit 2 girls in your home, so they both could play together and if you take a walk they could hold on the right and left side of the baby cart. The income of babysitting here in Switzerland is tax free so you always get net pay. If it is from the government agency, jobless insurance will be deducted etc.

    Are you not insured? as a jobless you could get paid from the insurance.

    Good luck.

    There are lots of online income opportunities that can generate money.  You WILL NOT get rich, like many of the sites claim, but you can make a little extra money to start off with.  Here are a few sites you can earn cash from:

    On these sites, you get paid for reading text messages:


    It's a great opportunity if you alread have unlimited text messaging.   

    Also, here a few other websites that pay you for things such as reading emails and signing up for free trials:


    Also, here is a website I just joined that pays you for sharing shortened URL's:


    Hope these websites can help out, at least a little bit.  All of these sites are legit and they WILL pay you.

      I have inboxdollars but I got nowhere with it, and the others I have not been able to get anything with either. I'm not sure if that is just with me, or if it's a common thing.

      I did look into that, but I am just so afraid I will have to put money into it and I won't get anything from it.
