It sure seems like I all my WAH ideas lately havehad something to do with children. I promise that soon I will have something for you that does not involve having extra children in your home.

Today I would like to focus on before and after school care for children in your neighborhood. If you call your local schools and ask them what their rate is for latch key you should be able to set your rates just slightly lower to make yourself more appealing to parents.

By watching kids only before and after school you should only have children in your home for 2-3 hours per day. Make sure to check with your state to make sure there are not any restrictions on how many children you can have in your care at one time or if there are any mandatory licenses that you may need.

My friend, Crystal, over at Money Saving Mom has a series going every Wednesday on how to make more money without working harder. I have to say that it is a wonderful series. She made a suggestion last week about starting businesses that will result in residual income. I am still researchers more ideas on how to go about starting these type of businesses, but in the mean time Crystal suggested a really interesting idea for making some money while still staying home. It is called Preschool In A Box.

Basically the idea is this...I am sure many of you have considered starting an in home daycare to make some extra money, but you really don't want to have kids in your home 8-10 hours a day. Joy Anderson is the genious behind preschool in a box. She shows you how you can start an in home preschool and only work 2.5-5 hours a day and make more money then you can with daycare. I checked out her site and it is completely legit. In fact, I ordered her free informational cd. I think she has some great ideas. So go check it out for yourself.
ZOOOOM EEEKKK!! That is how I feel I run this blog. Run as fast as you can and then come to a sudden halt! Ugh, one of these days I might get it right. Let's try once again to get things going.

I have so many ideas to share on making some extra income as lots of homemaking ideas. So here we go again.
