I feel your pain--I'm on SSDI and SSI as well. I'm fortunate to live in an area that has one of the lowest costs of living in the country--Indianapolis, Indiana. I used to have a lucrative career as a freelance writer for a website--I made about $140 a month. I've found mystery shopping to be a good source of income--I got my start with Field Agent and have branched out. I'm fortunate enough to be able to work part-time in a restaurant, but that incurs the risk of losing SSI.

Thank you, where I live is kinda affordable but after paying all the bills there isn't enough. I have a bad back and can't handle standing to long or sitting to long. I have more bad days then good days. I haven't looked into freelance writing before. I'm not sure I'd be to good at it. I do little things here at home but it's not been enough. Going shopping sounds like fun but haven't found anything real where I use their money and not mine. No one should have to do it that way. So far...

@layitlo I understand your frustration. There are so many things out there that people promote or they have a minimum threshold to cash out. I use quite a few different things to earn here and there but as you said, many of them require a minimum. I will definitely keep an eye out and let you know if I come across anything that is better. One thing I have done a bit has been Amazon Mechanical Turk. It is definitely not going to make you rich but it each a way to earn some extra money in your...

It's not just about the cash out amount. It's more of it takes for ever to make enough to cash out. I mean most surveys are paying less the $7.25 per hour and expecting you to do an hour long survey for $2.00. At that rate it takes months to be able to making a penny. There's a group I've been doing it for and I've been with them for like 7 or more years and it takes forever to get anywhere with them. The amounts never go up either. I'm not trying to get rich but do need atleast $100 per...

I hear you layitlo, and understand your frustration. Been through the mill myself over the last few years. Surveys and even writing jobs can seem quite fruitless, especially because one does not necessarily qualify for every survey or job right? Not always as easy to make some money online as is often suggested. I'm not quite sure if this will help. But I know of a way to publish an eBook in bookstores like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google Play and iTunes at absolutely no cost to...

I used to do surveys too but they became too time consuming and the amount of points you get doesn't justify the time. But I use Ibotta when shopping and I've made about $250 over a year and a half. I also use Mypoints when shopping on line. Mypoints is great.

I use InstaGC, Swagbucks, and Prolific Academic to make a few hundred extra dollars per month. Prolific Academic is the only site I will do surveys on since they only give you ones that you qualify for. On InstaGC and Swagbucks I stick to things like watching videos, clipping coupons, signing up for newsletters, clicks, that kind of thing.

@Vanessa I've tried swagbucks but I don't get to order much offline so it wasn't very helpful for me. I'll look at them all today. Thank you for them.

That sounds ok. But if took that long to make $250 it's not worth it. People begging for money make more then that in a week from what I have been hearing. I need something better then that. With the way things have been going what I keep finding hasn't been worth doing. I don't want to be rich but I have to find better.

I have connections with part time to full time work from home jobs. All are legit businesses with good names and growing majorly by the minute. You set your own goals, what you put in is what you get out. My friend owns and runs one of the businesses. She started at the bottom and worked her way to the top over the years, so she knows what it is like when in need so tries to help so many families out. The business gives out lots of bonuses. Gave away thousands of dollars, laptops and tablets...

Yes, I am kinda over doing the surveys too. It's time consuming and you don't get much $ out of it. Maybe someone knows of a legit home based business job board?? Good luck to you! I hope you find a great way to make extra $ to support your family.

I sounds interesting. I don't have really big goals because if I make over a certain amount I loose the checks. It's not that I enjoy living off it. It's just I can handle doing what I've done before and I have to take care of the kids.

Re: School Lunches - questions

Mara61 ·
My younger son's school has lunch service done by a caterer, he is not interested and I briefly worked for the caterer and knowing how he prepared the food, didn't let my kids buy lunch. $8 is very expensive. That is crazy! If our school offered free fruit and milk, my son would take the fruit. I pack my kids lunches, even my high schooler. They make their breakfast and lunch on the weekends, so are very capable. I rather they get a bit more sleep so I do pack their lunch, neither buy. I can...

My children are grown but here in Baltimore City, all lunches and breakfasts are free in public schools.

I budget one meal per week for each child. They get the freedom to choose which day and it allows me to manage a budget for lunches. I send them to school 4 days a week with a packed lunch and portion controlled snack sizes to keep most snacks between 10 and 25 cents. Packing a lunch costs around $1 for us, which is a lot less than the $3+ for school lunch depending on the school.

In Ks they have free and reduced breakfast and lunch here I all so know that kindergarten the parents have to pay for the child's snack and milk.

I know it has been asked alot. But I would like to see more ideas for someone on ssi to be able to make spare money to get by on or even have a life after paying for all the bills. I have kids at home and after everything hardly anything left but food and gas and it's not enough anymore. I have right under $60 left till the 3rd or when ever it comes in. I do surveys but they have gotten stupid. All or most are based on points or they want you to do one for less then $2 for almost an hour. I...

Does your child's school offer optional purchased lunches & snacks? Do you budget for your child to participate? My children's school has optional $2/slice pizza every Tuesday and has a optional hot lunch once a month plus some other days of optional popcorn, hot chocolate, etc. These are fundraisers for the school. I do allow my son to purchase the pizza sometimes. I find that the hot lunch days are very expensive at a minimum of $8 each, so he has never participated. The school also...
