I've decided to start my own business of sorts, probably on Etsy, with the plan to save all the proceeds for fertility treatments. I have a lot of crafty skills and I figure why not, who would it hurt?
So far I'm thinking of sewing type projects or knitting/crafty things on Etsy but I'm also considering becoming a Pampered Chef seller as well. Not sure yet which one, but those are my top two. It's just for my spare time though as I do have a 9-5 job as well.
Sounds like a good plan. Pampered chef would be horrible for me, I would want to buy everything and not make any money.

I love Pampered Chef as well, but my concern is their non-stick products. I am 100% against non-stick products. I don't use them and I would have trouble selling them as it's against my morals.... that would be my biggest issue.
Good luck to you!!!

My goal, once we move and once I get my sewing machine fixed/tuned, is to make cloth diapers as a start and try selling those. If I can turn a profit of a little bit, then it will be worth it. I can get the materials all pre-cut from a local fabric vendor, I just need to sew the pieces together. All of the parts are sold in packages and some parts individually, so I can custom make any kind. They sell inserts and PUL fabric so I can sew the PUL right on the diaper to make it an all-in-one or it can be a simple diaper with snaps that you need to put a cover on. Either way, it could be a lot of fun.
I think those are great ideas to save up. I would say, if you don't feel comfortable selling certain products b/c of your values, don't feel like you have to.
