Looking for New Sources of Income
With the Summer upon us and MOPS being done until next Fall, I am looking for new sources of income, even if they are small. I am finding that my little bot of income from my MOPS job really did help even if it was less than $100 a month most months. I've been brainstorming and I have come up with a few ideas.
One of the things that I already did and had great success with was selling off extra lupine and raspberry plants from my garden in the Spring. I am thinking I will do this again next Spring but also add various Columbine plants to that sale and possibly some thornless blackberry starts too.
Our Heather, the little boys and Jeff and I are going to sell some of the cherries from our huge cherry tree this year to friends and neighbors. We have done this in the past and it was really successful. Heather and the boys will help us pick, wash and package them up and she will take some back to her town to sell to her friends there. We will be splitting the profits right down the middle. We won't make a lot of money off it but it should be enough to help each of our families out a bit.
I'm going to be selling off some of our household items that we no longer need or use on some of the local buy, sell and trade online sites. Our house is so cluttered and things have got to go!
The lovely SJ, who has become a wonderful online friend and frequently comments on this blog, suggested that I become an Amazon Affiliate. I have mulled that idea over for awhile now and I decided to go for it. I do order many products through Amazon for our family and I thought this might be a way to help earn some additional income to do so. I am now regularly ordering some of my supplements through here to help manage my Fibromyalgia and they do seem to be helping manage my pain levels and with energy levels too, I have had several people ask me about what I am taking so I thought I would share them here in case you are interested in checking them out also. As always, my disclaimer is that I am not a medical professional and I am only sharing my personal experiences with these products. Everyone's body chemistry is different and what works for one person may not work for another. Make sure to check with your doctor, especially if you are taking other medications before taking any supplements to make sure that they will not cause any adverse effects when combined with any medications you may be taking.

I have also considered doing some tutoring on the side. My only fear with that is that I may get some students who are not motivated and try to fight me on doing their work. I just can't deal with that anymore so this may not be a viable option for me at this time.
If anyone has any other ideas, please let me know!
