Being a stay-at-home mom is a full-time job, but without the luxury of a paycheck. In these tough economic times, many moms are looking for ways to earn a little extra money, so we took to the message boards for creative ways to supplement your income while still caring for your child. Here are some great ideas and suggestions we got from our readers. You can add to the discussion, too.

Sell Items Online


As the saying goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure. Some creative moms on our message boards make extra cash by scouring garage sales and thrift stores for quality items and reselling them online for a few extra dollars. This can also be done with outgrown clothes, hand-me-downs, and any other items in good shape that you're willing to part with. Conducting transactions online is safe and secure, but be sure to go through a reputable site such as EBay.
