Homeschooling families are usually single income families and we could always use more cash. My oldest daughter (homeschooled grad, married, mama of two with her third on the way) makes some extra income selling things online. She started doing this when she was 13. She shares ideas and tips for finding what sells and being as efficient as possible with her Thrifty Tuesday posts She welcomes you to join her, too, and share your own ideas and wonderful thrift store finds.:
