I sell Avon. It can be "quit your job" type money or not. It depends on how much you put into it. I make enough every month in profit to justify keeping on keeping on. LOL. It could definitely help you pay down your debt as any other direct sales could. Good luck mama!

They are outsourced customer service for different companies. I took orders for QVC when I worked there, but they also did customer service for newspapers and other things (it's been about 3 years so I don't remember all the details). It really depends on how much you can work as to how much you can earn. DD was a baby when I was working there, so I only worked after she went to bed (I tried to do 4 hours a night) and made $300 or so a week. They paid minimum wage for the training, then after training they paid per minute of telephone time. I don't know if that is the way they still do it, but I assume so.

Re: Legitimate ways to make money at Home

I babysit 4 days a week. I only watch 1 little boy, and I probably wouldn't have started doing it if I hadn't known his parents. We go to church together and she is a teacher so it is pretty convenient. She drops him off in the morning on her way to school and picks him up on her way home. Maybe you could check with the teachers in your area to see if they need someone. Another idea that is good for teachers is a personal shopper. I used to go grocery shopping for a teacher every other week. It wasn't a lot of money, but it helped. It wasn't much work either.

About how many hours did you work per week, and what was your average weekly paycheck? I think this is something I may really want to look into when my son starts preschool or if I decide to not watch children in my home, and find a good daycare for him.

I did apply, though, so I'm excited to see what happens.

Re: Legitimate ways to make money at Home

I tried to work 4 hours a day, so about 20-24 hours a week, and I think I made $200-$300 a week.
