That's a great question, Being a stay at home mother I found it very difficult to find ways to make money online without actually spending money to get started. A year ago i started surfing the web for work from home opportunities and I found a few sites that were actually useful to make money from home or even on the go. Below is a list of survey sites you might want to try if you're a stay at home mom like me or whether you just want to earn extra income from home or on the go.

Total Time Prep/Total Time: 25 Min Makes 5 servings
Ingredients 1 pound ground beef 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables 1 can ( 14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, not drained 1 can ( 14-1/2 ounces) beef broth 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1/2 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
Dierctions 1. In a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the mixed vegetables, tomatoes, broth and pepper. Bring to a boil; add macaroni. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until macaroni and mixed vegetables are tender
Test Kitchen Tips This versatile recipe is great for picky eaters (especially those who don't like garlic and onions), but also easy to spice up. chili powder, paprika, onion powder, are tasty additions, start with 1/4 teaspoon of any or all, and increase to taste.
Substitute any short pasta for the elbow macaroni. Shells and wagon wheels are fun shapes for this kid- friendly soup.
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves; crushed teaspoon parsley or 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes Barbecue sauce or Chili sauce, if desired.
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease bottom of sides of 15x10x1- inch pan.
2. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except barbecue sauce, using hands or spoon. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place in pan.
3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until brown. Immediately remove from pan, Serve warm with sauce for dipping.
Since these are the ultimate party food they’re worth planning ahead for. Roll them up and freeze on baking sheets until firm. Then plop them into resealable plastic freezer bags and store for up to 1 month. Bake as needed, no defrosting required, at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
What is Sausage? Nothing more than finely chopped and well-seasoned meat; sausages depend on some degree or fat in the mixture, which gives it its succulence and delicious flavor.
Offer a variety of dips when serving these up to guests. Try barbecue sauce, chili sauce a mayo/yogurt dressing mixed up with a good sprinkle of garlic salt, lots of chopped fresh herbs and more Parmesan cheese, or blend of Ranch dressing with a spoonful of basil pesto.
Lightly wet your hands to roll the balls to prevent sticking.
