      I know this isn’t exactly what you were looking for, but you

      mentioned babysitting. If you can handle it, daycare out of your home

      can be profitable. I charged $2 an hour, which is on the cheap end. I

      could have up to 6 children (including my own) in my home and the

      state paid me to feed them nutritious meals and if you qualify with

      income the state will also pay to feed your chiodren. Now your state

      maybe different but from what I have seen they are pretty much the

      same across the board. I was registered not licensed (licensed can

      have more children) but I also did not have as many regulations or

      inspections. But I made $1200 a month and the state paid me $250 on

      average. You won’t have to pay for gas to commute, anything you buy

      for the daycare is a tax deduction and a percentage of utilities,

      house payment, cleaning supplies, car tags and insurance are all tax

      deductions. It is just a thought. Also with the state food program

      they you have to prepare a monthly meal plan and they give you the

      guidelines, so it helps with meal planning and budgeting. Good luck.
