    So hubby and I are in school full time....but I'm taking this summer off because I am done with core classes, just waiting on the nursing program to start in August.

    Anyway, I am staying home with the kids to save on daycare/babysitter cost....

    I plan on selling chicks, eggs, bunnies etc. while I'm at home....hubby will have the truck at school so I'll be stuck here anyway!

    Any ideas on anything else I can do to make alittle money?? We are barely making ends meet right now while we are in school!! Only 15 months to go! Come on graduation!!![​IMG]

    Also, any other ideas on how to advertise my chicks, eggs, bunnies etc?? I'm using Craigslist and the Iwanta (a local classifieds paper) right now!

    Why don't you keep the kids in daycare and just work full time? You will make way more than you could ever make selling eggs, etc.

    Because around here there aren't any jobs that pay decent enough to pay for 2 kids in daycare, plus gas back and forth to work/daycare and still have money left over!!

    Thats why I have decided to stay home.....

    Yea, then you have to figure in $4/gal. for gas.....its ridiculous!

    I'd rather sit home....and tend to the chickens/rabbits!! [​IMG]


    Anyone know of anything else I can do???

    GAAA! that's crazy! it would be cheaper to put them up in a day spa. dogs are so much cheaper.


    May talk to military spouses, if you can find any. They are pretty good about the home business thing. Pampered Chef, Avon, Longaberger comes to mind.

    If you can type, some dictation services hire people to work at home.

    You might consider babysitting for the summer for less than daycare charges and give someone else a financial break. Just make sure they know the time limit.
