More and more SAHM are coming up with creative ways to add a little extra cash to the household budget. What do you do to help supplement your spouses income? What are some great ideas that you have heard about?

I'm going to be starting a photography business soon. :) So far I've been doing them for friends and family for the last couple years, but I've been so busy with it, I think it's time to make it something more. It will just be small though to supplement our incomes.

I'm working now, but I still coupon and price match to help reduce our home costs. Save anywhere from $60-$120/week :)

I did photography and hair bows hoping not to return to work after my first mat leave. Gave up the photography except for weddings. I love shooting weddings but unfortunately family sessions I just can't compete with the market these days. There's too many people who buy a $500 dslr and call themselves a photographer without any education, shooting on auto for $40/shoot. I can't charge that without losing money when you factor in time editing, money spent on props etc.

I only worked for minimum wage so me staying home is saving us money because now we don't have topay for day care,a second car, extra insurance, and we don't have topay at tax season because I made a lousy 15000$. If I went back to work we would be more in the hole then we arenow.

I did pet sitting so I could be home more with my kids. It had been my plan since I'd gone to school for vet tech though.
