Homemade arts & crafts. Many individuals find they can easily sell great homemade arts and crafts. Everything from making homemade wreaths for holidays, to sewing blankets and quilts can be sold in local craft fairs, online craft groups or on a website like Etsy, Ebay or your own blog. Homemade arts & crafts do especially well when themed around popular pop culture items or holidays.
Online surveys & rewards programs. While these programs often get a bad rap, they are legitimate and a means of making extra money. Most pay out in gift cards, and they require a ton of work however they are well worth it to help pay for holiday gifts or those fun things like date nights or your favorite specialty coffee drinks. InstaGC is one of my favorites and I make $20-50/month from Swagbucks.

In-home childcare. If you have small children, plenty of space and a love of children you may want to start an in-home childcare center. There are tons of ways to help your friends, family, and neighbors by becoming a babysitter. Check with local state regulations, but in many instances if you are only keeping 1-4 kids in your home you can do so without special licenses. Grabbing a few puzzles, preschool education books, videos, and setting up a basic routine makes this a super easy and fun way to make money at home.
Direct sales programs. If sales are something you are comfortable with, and you enjoy a specific brand or product this can be great. Makeup, health products, supplements and even home décor or kitchen products can all be great choices. Just remember up front there may be investments in product, time to market yourself and finding a direct sales program in your area that isn't saturated may be tough. This requires hard work and dedication, but can actually become one of the best easy ways to make money at home once established. LuLaRoe, Poofy Organics, and Scentsy are just of the few great programs out there. Those links go directly to a consultant that I've worked with in the past & love to support.
