    Default How do you make money as a SAHM?

    I'm wondering if any hubbers manage to bring in cash while being a SAHM. DD is 2 and we've agreed we won't put her in childcare for at least another year. We're managing on DHs income however it's our 10 year anniversary next year and I'd love to surprise DH with a weekend away so I'd like to pay for it with my own money. I've got about 6 months to get some cash together and I'm not looking to do anything that takes me away from DD for more than say 1 day a week but I was thinking maybe cleaning, ironing, cooking from home etc. Does anyone do anything like that and is it worthwhile? Any other ideas?

    I delivered phamlets with the kids a couple of years ago. They were getting about $75-95 per week for 1200 catalogs. It was a bit of a nightmare really... so much work for so little. I think if you got a smaller run or did papers instead, it may not be too bad.
