I need to start bringing in some MONEY!


Kids arent cheap. Well at least mine arent. They always want to eat, or have diapers or even worse, clothes! How dare they? Pfft. I guess since I HAVE TOOOOO...

Ah, I kid, I kid. But kids ARE expensive, and even with my extreme couponing and saving money wherever possble, there is just never enough. Since the job markey ::ahem:: sucks, Im trying to think of things I can do to make money at home. Im pretty crafty so thats an option. My friend Amy suggested maybe a menu planning service. Everything from the menu for the week with a shopping list and possible coupons, to picking the items up for people, right down to cooking it/freezing it for them. What do you guys think?

What are some other money making ideas? I know some of you have to have some?!

  1. I had an arrangement like that with a neighbor once. She did all that for me. Planned, shopped, cooked, delivered. It was great! Where did she go???

    Unfortunately no great ideas. Blogging can bring in free products and gift cards, but actual cash can be hard to come by on the internet.

  9. I hear you! As a stay at home mom myself, I wish I could find a way to earn some extra money. But I need it to be something that doesn't take too much time because the only time I have to get things done is when my daughter is sleeping and I can't give up any more of my night time sleep as it is.

    I've Stumbled your post. Mine is at http://librarygirlreads.blogspot.com/2011/02/otl-we-use-coupons.html

  12. Stopping by from Good Friends. I had to go back to work a few months ago part-time...kids ARE expensive! A menu planning service sounds like a great idea. Good luck!

  14. Menu planning is a really great idea, and it sounds like you'd be great at it. Couple that with your couponing, maybe teach a class or two, and you could really monitize your skills.

    Really GREAT post! I'm a new fan and follower. I also coupon (somewhat extremely), so it's fun to read others who do it also.

    I stumbled ya, and I'd love it if you could stumble me back!

  16. Hi, I am a new follower thru GFC and would greatly appreciate a follow back. I am new to blogging and hope to reach the goal of 25-50 so I qualify for reviews and someday giveaways. My blog was done by me so it is not as pretty as this one or as technical but hopefully I get it re-designed before I ask to do reviews. Thanks for the Blog Hop!
