I was just checking for ideas. Does anyone have any suggestions for extra income ideas? I sew not an expert though, I have tried to sell jellies and jams no luck there. Kids sell eggs the chickens are their money. Have five acres very wet did our first garden this year not much luck we did put up veggies but not near as much as last year. Got two feeder pigs for us to raise and save money with food both girls still little bitty fairly tame. Anybody ever raised litters to sell? How did that go? We have them on about 1/2 acre fenced with goat wire no probs yet. They root but haven't got under the fences may just be a matter of time. Hubby is a welder nothing out there right now for him.....not even fence work. Tried doing home health on the side but we are so rural and the pay so poor wasn't even worth the time. I am back in college full time now but kids are hating it begining to hate my decision to go back and it is soooo hard. HArd on hubby hard on me hard on 4 kids. I am hating life. I think I made the wrong decision to go to school has caused us nothing but heartache and strain on the family more than we already had. I would love nothing more than to make stuff or raise stuff or do anything to have a side income to help so things would not be so bad. Any suggestions? What is everyone else doing that is struggling like us?
