I am inspired by your courage and wise choices! My experiences may be of use to you. We were living on $700 per month, maintaining our small farm, home and three vehicles. I got sick and ran up about $200,000 in bills. Jim and I were grateful that the children were grown up or our burdens would have been even greater. So this is what I did. I asked the Lord to help me find money, and promised I would put unexpected blessings in savings. I expected a couple of hundred dollars for the year. But when our Lord answers a prayer, he doesn't kid around. I began by saving small rebate checks and using coupons at the grocery store. As I grew stronger I picked up aluminum cans and sold them at the recycling center. The walking was good for me - a nice side benefit. I received a small inheritance from my father's estate, completely out of the blue. At the end of the year, I had $2,000 in my "sock." It was a lesson to me that even people on our small income can waste significant amounts of money without knowing it. And more importantly, if we are willing to work with the Lord, he may provide a solution "out of the blue." I hope this helps you in your walk, and in your search. In His Love, Coreen

If you're on disability, you're most likely at the federal poverty level. So even if you sell stuff online, you won't have to pay taxes because, when you file your income tax, you'll fall below the taxable level of income. However, the greater issue is that, if you make too much money, it could affect your disability payments. Ask your case worker how much you can make, before it would affect you adversely.
Are you on disability. I'm sure anything you sell on line, you will have to count as income and maybe pay taxes on it. What kind of things do you plan on selling online. There is etsy.com where people can sell craft items. There is ebay where people sell all kinds of things. Check some of them out. I know whatever you sell on these sites you have to pay the site a percentage. You also have to be able to get to the post office or whatever to ship the items out.
