Just a couple more to add...
Resale Sales: There are both storefront type kid's resale shops, and, in my area, there are resale "Sales" for kid's clothing, toys, and accessories at least twice a year. Check out your area. People pay good money for used kids' stuff. (You should also look into resale shops for your own stuff).
Volunteer: Volunteering is not only good for the spirit, but can leave you with an impressive resume when/if you get back into the work force. It can also help open many doors to future employment opportunities by meeting and working with people.

Thanks for writing this articles. I love the idea of being working in a Gym. I liek the idea of being paid and having free childcare. This made me think of the other career. Being working in a childcare. I heard of free childcare for preschool teacher in the childcare too.

@dealwagger: I actually over think surveys. I am bad at taking tests and, although a survey is not a test, I often treat it as one. I'll be like "hmm...how many hours do I spend watching TV? I wonder if they mean weekends or weekdays...should I give an average?" Nevertheless, I'll have to check out Pinecone, always up for something new!Thanks!
@MHT962: Yeah, you can make some nice money selling the clothes. I have too many cousins to do that though. We are all expected to pass around the hand me downs which is fine because it means I get free clothes when I have a kid. Also, volunteering is great to build your resume if you plan on going back to work once your kids are school-age. I volunteer with a refugee organization teaching English a few hours a week. I don't get paid, but it is very rewarding and it will look wonderful on my resume if/when I return to work.
@barang_square: I looked into working at a preschool. If it is state certified, you will probably have to pay for your children to attend. If it is a church preschool and you know some people, you might be able to bring your kids for free. Never hurts to ask. The preschools around me cost a fortune so it didn't make sense for us because I wouldn't actually be making much, if any, money. Daycare, on the other hand, is usually more lenient but is less structured.
@erick99: Plus'd ;)
