I'm already working full time as a teacher & dh is at university whilst also working full time. so we're pretty maxed out time-wise. however, being slightly squeezed at the moment by rising prices everywhere!
Anyone got any ideas for raking in a bit of extra cash? just something mindnumbingly boring that i can sit and do in the evening woudl be perfect! i joined pinecone research about two months ago but havent been sent anything through yet. any other ideas out there?

Hiya hun, what about becomming a bodyshop at home consultant? Hours to suit 25% commision (average party takes £200 so £50 for you but with xmas coming this could easily triple)

Loads of incentives and freebies and a good, fun night in with the girls. If you want anymore info pm me xx

Usborne would be really good with you being a teacher

you already have a school that you could arrange events in, plus the school fairs they have or they just might want to order books from you

and maybe you would find it easy to get into other schools also

you can do sponsered reads which do not take up much time but can be quite a bit of money in it for you (kids get sponsered to read, the money is spent on books from you! you get the commission...easy!!!)

I will get my friend Nicki Sue who is an Usborne Organiser to come onto your thread, she is really nice and can tell you loads more about it

I reckon you could do really well with being a teacher smile

Hi, I have been doing Usborne for about 3 months and I'm loving it. I jus do it part-time when I can around my little 9 month old boy and most of the time I can even take him with me whilst selling to toddler groups/nurseries etc, but anniebear is right, you could do well with the schools.. you could do parties in the evening just amongst friends etc if you wanted. Let me know if you want some info about it.

You can do the Bodyshop at home in the evening for extra money, very easy money too!

Hi! Sorry its taken me so long to get on - I've had pc problems!

Usborne is an opportunity that could work well for you. 90% of the "work" you do is at home on the email/internet and phone which sounds perfect for what you want. I have a couple of exteachers in my team and they have done very well with it.

Email me if you want any further info hun
