One of the more popular sites to sell homemade items is Etsy. Here, you can sell items in over 40 categories including clothing, jewelry, handbags, draperies, and scented candles. There is a small listing fee per item; however, it comes out less than the cost of hosting your own web store, and the advertisement space is free.

Another way to make money from home, which may demand a bit more of your time is to work for an at-home call center.
