Babysitting Job?

It is becoming quite apparent that no business establishment is going to hire me so I have decided to go back to babysitting. So far, I have received one person that would possibly be interested in my services. If I do get the babysitting job, I told the lady that I would charge $10-$15 per child. She has two so that would be around $25 per day. I do not think that is too high. The sitter she has now is charge around $185 per week. I would only charge around $110-$125 per week.

I would charge more if she lived farther away. But she lives in the same town as I do so that is why I am charging less. Plus, I would be babysitting in the woman's home unlike her current sitter. I would be working full time hours, 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. I just am tired of being broke all the time. Plus, I want to start saving money so me and the hubby can move out and get a place of our own.

That's what I do, except I do in home daycare and charge $100 for a week. It's not much but it keeps my home with my own toddler and I make enough money to cover my kids extra curricular activities.

I would love to be able to babysit in my home but it's too crowded. That way, I could make money and not have to leave my son. LOL.

It can be difficult to make ends meet these days. We do what we can to bring in some income. Hope you get the job.

Good luck on getting the babysitting job! I am hoping to get certified to run a small day care like thing out of my home once the house remodel is done. :)
