Hi everyone, I am wondering if anyone has any ideas to contribute to my current situation. My husband & I have 1 child (my stepson but we have full custody & the mother is not involved). He is 12 years old & has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type II, a rare genetic condition that causes his muscles to deteriorate over time. He is in a power wheelchair & needs help with virtually every physical task (mentally he's beyond his peers - he skipped a grade, he's in normal non-special Ed.Read More...

Making $$$ from home

Haley Bolin
Hi there! 🙋🏼‍♀️ My name is Haley and I am a new mother in Nashville with a 2 1/2 month old and will not be returning to work anytime soon. My son is having some health issues that requires him to have frequent visits to various clinics and has resulted in a week long hospital stay two different times already, so working a regular job right now is just not feasible in the least. I was hoping some of you fine folk might have some promising leads on ways to make money at home. Any dollar I...Read More...
Hi, I just want to add that doing the surveys is no joke. I've earned almost $800 in gift cards in just over 2 years. My favorite sites are....mypoints.com, surveyjunkie.com and inboxdollars.com. And congrats on your new little one. I hope the medical issues go away soon.Read More...
While searching for that perfect wah opportunity, you could complete some surveys, on line focus groups, and/or in person focus groups as time permits. I've participated in 3 focus groups so far this year and complete surveys on a daily basis for cash, merchandise, or gift cards. Hope this helps!Read More...

I've not tried Amazon........yet, but I have sold on ebay and Etsy and found the best source of information is within each website forums.

You must also keep track of every penny of your expenses. Ebay and Etsy both have raised their seller fees recently and both now collect fees on your shipping costs.

Contact your congressman or senator regarding resources available for fixed income & disabled. I’m on Ssdi as well, but disability retired from the federal government - so my pensions were a bit higher. You can also work up to a certain amount per month before they start to count the monies you earn against your pension. Go to Ssa.gov for additional information about these programs. Best of luck!Read More...

If you're serious about wanting to blog and make money I'd start learning everything you can about affiliate marketing. Check out www.makingsenseofcents.com or www.ruthsoukup.com . You can learn some stuff from free on these sites but to learn more you'll have to purchase the classes, which aren't necessarily cheap.Read More...

I donated several years ago when I was making a good income. It helped me, but I was terrible at saving, so I'm not sure how much. I still have scars from my donations and even though we're not rich now I wouldn't do it again. That and I take meds and I don't want them titrating out of my body.Read More...
Thanks, Jacob. I donated years and years ago. Just wondering if things have changed much. Thinking about trying it again for supplemental income.Read More...

Hi Amanda- you & me both- looking to make extra $- I know people don't want to clutter the market w/ tips so that they can make $ too, but I don't mind sharing what I've done so far- (in the name of neighbors helping neighbors and putting positivity out into the world and all of that...)

Scholarships

Averie Messenger
Hello Everyone, I'm seeking advice for scholarships. The few on my college website are few and far between and very specific for applicants (like year, major, and extracurriculars). I'm searching for other avenues to win scholarships online but I need some help locating good websites that are legit. I have an excellent GPA and I can write essays or anything as necessary. Does anyone have any tips? AverieRead More...
I talked to my profs for my degree; they tended to know more ins and outs or major specific scholarships than my financial advisor did. I also talked to librarians, not just at my college but my main library. Weirdly enough, they knew a lot of other legitimate resources I could look into or could show me a section where I might find what I was looking for. Our main library apparently had an ENTIRE section of books with just website and foundation listings that offered scholarships I'd never...Read More...
If you have any special skills, you might want to look organizations or groups that support those special skills. Over the years I have viewed scholarships for people who are left-handed....being home schooled...etc.Read More...

Job Searching: Grit and Prayer

Scotirish
Not real certain where this fits in this community, but in a recent Hoarder e-mail they spoke about Zero Based Budgeting. My wife and I had just returned from our honeymoon as I resumed my position as a bookkeeper for a publishing company. The company wasn't doing well financially and soon several of us were released with a severance check to hold us until we landed on our feet. Not only did I not have the marketable skills necessary to traverse the rough road ahead of me but I also had a...Read More...

Work at home jobs

n.gordon
Looking for advice on the best companies for online work from home jobs. I have looked at REV so far, and FLexJobs seems to want a fee. Any ideas out there? Thanks!Read More...
I am sorry but I really don't know what this is...you build apps?Read More...
Yes, FlexJobs wants a small fee but they frequently have specials. You can buy just one month, 3 months, etc., memberships. The thing about them is that they cull for the best legitimate "real" jobs (that you may not have time for doing all the searching), and I guarantee their legitimacy. I found my first editing freelance job with them back in 2015 when I semi-retired. But, I've also found work via Indeed and Glassdoor. You know, I looked at REV also. Who needs the aggravation? I don't...Read More...

Employment in the trades

KellyFromKeene
I love stories like this. https://www.thepennyhoarder.co...%7B%7Bitr_uuid%7D%7D The trades are so, SO important and often overlooked by people considering careers. I'm encouraging my kids to go in the trades. (Not too much pushing though, you know teenagers!) Anyone here work in the trades? I'm a Social Worker, so not me, but my fiancee is a Lineman. The money is great, the toll on his body, not so much; but its been a good career for him. If you are in the trades, how did you get into it?Read More...
Hubby is a licensed electrician and we opened up our own electrical contracting business from home. Now that he's getting older and no longer wants to physically do the work anymore, we have transitioned to doing estimating and job/material tracking for the labor companies.

And we're about to transition again to small real estate investing projects where we take the electrical and also invest in...Read More...
My better half is a licensed land surveyor. I retired from a long career in real estate to help him open up his own business which we chose to run from our home. We were able to connect with builders and developers to create a niche surveying business that has served us very very well with low overhead. The trades are in high demand in our area of FL, save for the big crash in 2008, but they have bounced back full steam now.Read More...
