Working from home is not taking the lazy way out.
As a matter of fact, there are many very legitimate ways that hard working individuals can make a living without ever even leaving the house. Being able to work from home seems only natural, after all, as we are our most productive when we’re feeling relaxed — and we are out most relaxed when we are at home.
Telecommuters have reported that they have higher morale and lower stress rates than those who travel to and from work on a daily basis. Feeling good will often make you perform better at work, so it begs the question as to why so few people take advantage of the option to work from home.
For starters, I believe that there is a misconception about what working from home means. Many think that there is no real money to be made, but I beg to differ.
To prove this, I have compiled a list of 40 ways you can legitimately make money from home, whether it be through selling items, downloading apps, performing everyday activities, or taking on actual work from home jobs.

Similarly, a child’s favorite toy on Monday just may lay discarded in a pile of garbage by Friday when they’ve inevitably moved on to something else. While this may seem like a waste of money, it can actually help you make a little extra cash at home if you sell these used items on websites like E-bay and Half.com. If you are new to selling items online, before you go any further with this post, I am going to recommend that you check out a few websites to get started. The more you know, the better you’ll do.
