  • Child care

It is an easy way to make extra money, and you can do this work from home, because you can open a child care in your own home if you have the facilities. Further more a child care does not usually need a lot of expenses for advertising the services. Usually most of the clients come from word of mouth referrals. If you are able to gather some positive referrals from friends and family members and then let it be known that you are open for business.

Places like Facebook, Craigslist, Sitter City and local bulletin boards are great locations to promote your business (and they are also free tools), and always remember to connect neighbours, friends and family personally so that they know about your services.

  • Selling stuff

Probably everybody has something what they do not use anymore and could sell. It can be anything from children's clothing to books, CDs, DVDs, toys, games, etc. And nowadays it can be easily sold virtually at reasonable prices. Especially nowadays there are many different portals for shoes, clothes, books where you can sell it either for money, or exchange it, get coupons, vouchers, etc.

While selling items does not seem like an actual home- based business, some individuals turn it into a business at home by buying clothing, books and various items at garage sales and thrift stores- then they turn around and sell it for a higher price on sites like Craigslist, eBay, etc.
