i want to be a plumber. not really something you could do at home though.

How about getting paid for doing peoples ironing?

thats a good idea!...how much would you charge for that an hour?..thing is though with the credit crunch the luxuries go firs so people more then likely to do there own ironing..worth a post in our local shop window for those few non sufferers!

I really think there should be more at home jobs available..think mums are more likely to want to work that way (im not referring to all there are few like myself who really want to get out and get a job!) and also wont have to spend half there wage on childcare.
If anyone knows of any at home jobs please also post thanks.

not sure if by "at home" you actually mean in the house or just something you can do nearby. dog walking has become a major industry now-the guys up here who do it are fully booked and get ten quid per dog per day 5 days a week so even 2 dogs in the morning and 2 in the afternoon is a coupla hundred quid.

depends if you like dogs and if you have somewhere local you can take em but with many doggie households having both partners at work all day its certainly worth considering.

If you have the discipline and willpower give this ago: "Matched betting." I managed to make over £700 in 6 weeks following the guidelines and tips rigidly.

IT IS NOT GAMBLING! if anything else because its a moneysavingexpert forum.:thumbsup:

Yes it does take a few hours/days to fully understand before you start.

Copy and paste if link not working.

i used to ages ago pay a lady £10 for a black bag i know this was a good price, some people limit the bag or washing basket to maximum 5 shirts. i work in recruitment and also a mum so i appreciate how hard it is for you at the minute. can you type as companies are employing people to do remote typing which means the firm send the typing down a phone line and then it goes to this company and then the workers get it, you then do it at home like when the kiddies are asleep. hope this helps and good luck. also my mate is a stay at home mum and she sells all her little girls old stuff on ebay toys and clothes she grown out of she makes quite a bit, made me gutted that i threw all mine out but if you have the bother and time to do it it could be profitable.

well someone put a leaflet through our door offering this as a service and they charged by the kilo of clothes. i suppose that is fairer for the customer than say paying by the hour. people will be out at work more and so have less and less time to do their ironing so i reckon you would get some business. You only need 5 or six regulars and you will be sorted.

Hi. I've bought cake toppers off Ebay before. If you do a search on something your looking at making, then put a cross in the "completed listings" box you can see how many sold (shown in green) and how many did not sell.

Good luck. :thumbsup:

Credit crunch or not, ironing is the last expense to ditch for people who don't do their own, like me :) - Making cakes, catering for events - if you do it well, you will find work, probably not a lot in the begining but things are not so bad.

ironing service?
#15
you could sign up to a few survey sites im not sur if im aloud to mention any on here.
But theres a few extra quid to be made on them.
Theres loads about.
#16
You could try the usual - betterware/body shop parties/avon/usborne books etc but most of these have an initial outlay!

Ive just resigned myself to that fact that i'll have to wait till both kids are at school before i can go out to work. Luckily i dont NEED to work right now but i have looked (for my own sanity) lol

For some extra money how about getting boot sale items together ready for the season. I sold all my baby's stuff either on Ebay ( designer bits etc.. or tagged items) and the rest at boot sales. Made a few hundred pounds in the summer, couldn't believe how much of it went. If you hang it up it puts people off believe it or not so just fold into piles on the floor. (not my thing but i've learned from experience). Ask friends and family for bits but kids stuff it HOT!
