Work at home ideas

Does any know of any legit work at home ideas that I can do part time to make some extra cash? I'm not asking for any get rich quick schemes, I know those don't work. I just want to know if anyone knows of any work at home things I can do. Thanks 🙂

Go with what you can do like crafts, taking care of kids, cooking. Look for a need and see if you can fill it. My grandma did okay selling things she made using beads or decorating plastic grids with yarns to make coasters and book holders among other things. Oh, and look into things like Avon or Tupperware, something you really like and are willing to represent to other people. I know a woman who sold Discovery Toys (fun and educational games and toys) and she did pretty good before she retired last year. In fact, she made enough doing that without having to hold a "regular" job. Good luck on whichever thing you decide to pursue.

I'm in the same fix-I'd love some part time work I can do at home!

After trying a lot of home business opportunities that I just couldn't make work, I decided it's easier for me to work for someone else. 🙂

I work for American Veterans as a telephone solicitor. They send me a list of 250 names each week and I call the people to see if they have donations of clothing or household goods to pick up for the veterans. I'm not selling anything or asking for money--basically offering them a service so I don't feel as bad as those "solictors" we all hate! 🙂 Anyway, they pay me on a commission basis so it's erratic income, but I get a weekly check.

I know they operate in Ohio, but I'm not sure of the other states.

I wrote a couple of months ago because I was so far behind in bills my utilities were about to be shut off and my house was in preforeclosure. The late mortgage payments ruined our chance for a decent rate for refinancing. My husband was going to see about an emergency loan using the our 401K plan. We were going through papers and "discovered" savings bonds. How many of us receive savings bonds as gifts and never do anything with them? We turned in the bonds, paid two mortgage payments and the utilities. We spoke with the bank about the late mortgage payment and we were able to defer one payment that will come due at the end of the loan. We didn't even know this option exsisted!

I hope this might jog somebody's memory! lol
