Earn More Money / Jobs for SAHM
July 20, 2015, 03:13:37 pm
I am a new SAHM (about 6 months), but I'm really wanting to bring in some extra income for our household.  We have all seen the ads for "Medical transcriptionist" etc.  But what suggestions do you have for work from home jobs that I might not have thought of??

Thank you for the reply.  I guess specifically what I'm asking is once ive reached the max contributions in my 401K and IRA, should i put our extra savings into a 529 or into a taxable account in our names?

We have a four year old, and so far we only have about $200 saved in his 529.  On one hand we want to start diligently saving in the account (We would like to fund a 4 Year In-State College), but on the other we feel we will pay for it out of our personal savings when the time comes. 

We have always heard that you should save for your retirement before your children's education, since you cannot get a loan for retirement.  Are we wrong to neglect to save in a 529, but fully fund both our IRAS and 401K plans?
