    When I was a SAHM I bought and re-sold designer baby clothes. Bought from op shops (where I was going anyway, and I love op shopping) and sold on eBay. Any kind of re-selling though you really need to know what you're doing to make it profitable.

    Years ago I also used to dog-sit. It'd be trickier with young children, but I used to get $15 a day ($10 a day for extended periods) having someone else's dog stay with us. For single days, we didn't usually walk them...just let them hang out with our dog in our big backyard, and play with them a bit while their owners were at work.

    I did an ironing business from home. I made up a pamphlet to deliver locally myself and offered a discount for referred clients and the greater the amount of baskets in one drop the cheaper they got.
    This way I didn't have to run around doing a lot of deliveries but got extra $ from the same client.
    From memory I charged $25/30 per basket.
    Most clients were pretty good at combing a mix of business shirts, tshirts etc. They provided hangers and any starches they wanted used.
    I did 24hr pick up and returns and did most of the work once everyone was fed and settled of an evening.
