I am looking for some supplemental income to get caught up on a couple of bills. I travel way too much for job #1 to get any type of normal second job. Has anyone ever tried any of the "work at home" dealio's like stuffing envelopes, filling out forms for companies etc. Looking for any other fresh idea's that would allow me to basically set my own schedule.

Stuffing envelopes are nothing but "Get rich quick" schemes. I've tried a couple off different ones. All I got was a giant loss of money and time. If you can find a stuffing envelope company that sends you the forms, the envelopes, etc and all you have to do is literally stuff then that is most likely not a scam. But most of them are not like that. The couple that I did required advertising to be done on work at home forums and it never worked out for me.

So, what are you handy at?

Eddie - I was kinda considering the same... only thing I could come up with is maybe waitressing or something on the weekends during the winter. Or working at a mall or some store during the Christmas rush. Nothing too glamorous thats for sure. Sucks to give up weekends though. I would like to hear more "at home" ideas if anyone has any.

One thing I did a lot of last year that I missed out on this year is do local race reports/photos. It would make me a couple of bucks and sometimes help cover race/gate fees in trade for writing a story.

That depends, is there a special outfit I would have to wear?

I'm not looking for get rich quick schemes, searching around the internet it appears that's all there is. It seem as though selling a 'work at home' scheme IS the work at home job :)

you know how to work a paint brush?
I have a friend that drives around on the weekends and paints front doors, shutters, touch up.... puts about $300 cash in his pocket every weekend. He does very well during the week working for SAS. Just an idea.

Medical transcription. Of course it requires a certificate and 6 months of training (which you can do at home with the proper equipment). It's not an immediate job, however, once you have your certificate you become quite valuable. Jobs for medical transcription are all over the place and they pay very well. Not only that you can dictate how many hours you want to work and when you want to work. Again, it's probably not a great idea if you're looking for something right now, but something to consider for the future. ;)

Have you considered male prostitution? Great money in it and as the great Velvet Jones once said..."You never have to leave the comfort of your own bedroom!" A good ho can make over $400 a week!!

Sure, most of your clientele may be males...but hey, it pays for the riding eh??

I did that until Cycle New stiffed me and never sent me a check for the articles and photos.:p
