What's a Girl Supposed to Do? Really....

Okay peeps, I need some ideas. It's the age old question, the issue that is among many of those who choose to stay at home with their babies or homeschool or both ~ we need some extra income....

A one income household is always running on the tight end of life. My husband is a wonderful provider. Seriously, there are no complaints on this end with his work ethic and his dedication to provide for our family.

But lets be real, we've got school debt, a house we want to buy, thoughts of adoption in the future, and plenty of expenses with three kids, renovations, and life in general. A little extra moolah would be helpful all around.

I need some creative ideas. Help me! Let's put our heads together and think of things outside of the normal job box!

Here's the scenario.... whatever I do needs to be at home, flexible and have the ability for me to put it aside and focus on school curriculum's, diapers, dinners, legos, and anything else this family needs. My first priority is to continue being the wife and mom I'm suppose to be. Second, I can't plan to leave the house in the evenings or weekends... nope, my husbands current job has a rotating schedule that includes weekends and working 12 hour shifts. Yep, I'm the primary one at home. Third, what am I actually good at? Well, in the worlds eyes, not a whole lot. I mean I've got some talents - my own ones like writing, baking, painting, decorating, funkifying something up, organizing, encouraging people, teaching, etc.

What I am not good at??? Selling things - for real, I couldn't be a P*mp*red Ch*f consultant or anything along those lines, to save my life. And don't make me call people - I can't even stay connected to my friends and family from afar. Who has time to get on a phone and talk with three kids running around?

Yeah.... see the issue here? What in the world could I do that would help out a little with some of the bills around here?

There has to be someone out there that has a good, creative, interesting idea!

  1. Have you thought of refinishing old furniture and reselling it on consignment? I haven't done this yet, but I plan to soon. ( My husband has got tons of tools, we are in transition so all of them are in storage). My inspiration is from a blog I found recently called "Miss Mustard Seed." That is what she does to supplement her family's income, and I also like to paint, decorate, etc. Since I haven't done it yet, I am not sure if it will work, but I've been scouring the Craigslist in my area and frequenting the Goodwill stores, looking for good deals on old (but solid) furniture. Some people even throw out solid wood furniture and I've picked up a few pieces. Hope this helps!

    P.S. (Her link is here:http://missmustardseed.blogspot.com/) Don't worry, this in not spam, I don't know her personally, and I'm not trying to sell anything. I just saw that you are sharing a similar life situation that I am and I thought this might interest you as much as it has interested me. God bless!
