    I need some ideas. I'm about to lose my house!! I have applied for every stinking job in the county already...INCLUDING fast food, and still nothing. I haven't worked officially in a long time due to homeschooling my kids, being a housewife and such. I need ideas on starting a home based business to pull in at least $150 a week. I have put ads in the paper and CL for cleaning jobs, babysitting jobs, etc. and seems everybody is watching their own kids and cleaning themselves these days. I have plans to sell produce, chickens, eggs, and all that, but can't if I don't have them to sell yet, and it wouldn't be enough for my house payment anyway by itself. On the bright side the bator is full at the moment [​IMG] I know this rut can't last forever, and just want some quick ideas to stop the bloodflow right NOW! Anybody have any suggestions? I am NOT afraid of manual labor either, I can hold my own next to ANYBODY and have done so, I just need some ideas. We have sold almost everything of value in this house already to survive the last 5 months...this is REALLY starting to get on my last nerve [​IMG] I'm stubborn and refuse to just sit on the couch and give my house to the stupid bank though. So....can I pick your brains? I need some bright ideas.......

    I wish I could help. I'm blank because everything seems to take such an investment to just get started. I'll keep you in mind tho and if I think of anything I'll post.

    Maybe I could get a few investors..hehe. I do have very good friends and family, but my problem isn't theirs. I'd have to find a for sure deal to ask for someone to invest their hard earned money. But I do work my butt off and everyone knows it!

    Quote:Already on FS and wanting off the government merry go round already!!! LOL! Anybody with half a backbone and been there knows what I mean [​IMG] We will be chopping some wood, but we have no truck to haul it. Thought of selling a few trees. We have 1.5 acres, and several big oaks...maybe somebody would buy them? Thanks for the good luck wishes!!!!

    Oh, and I have already started selling some homemade soaps. It's just not enough, but several such things might eventually be enough. I just wanna keep my house! I (almost) don't care how [​IMG]

    First off, have you tried to get in on that HAMP program through the government? I'll tell you, it's bad out their! I lost my job to China, I worked there for over 11 years! I've been out of work for over 1 yr. I just got that loan modification through the gov. program. It may help. It was the only way we were able to save our home. We've had to sell and lose everything of value too. What about a temp service?

    In the middle of working that out right now. Our bills are just so stinking high! Unemployment MAX is $300 a week. Went from $1000 a week and a lifestyle that goes with...to unemployment. DRASTIC change [​IMG] We blazed through savings in a couple months. We have made it this far though, and the 'stuff' we lost...so what? I just want to keep my little farm going! It's what we have left and not an expense as much as it is an asset. I made money last summer and fall...but the winter is killing us. Just trying to hold out for Spring [​IMG] Oh, and 2 whole temp services have my app as well. Just updated everything, there are just no jobs! I was poor all my childhood so I know where and how to cut back, and have on EVERYTHING..just no breathing room anymore, and it's irritating!​
