Need to boost your family income but don’t know where to start? Here’s 9 ways to start making money as a stay at home mom or dad!
It’s getting harder and harder to support a family on one income, but it doesn’t have to be impossible! Whether you’re in need of some extra “fun” money for the month or you really need to create a second full-time income, there are a ton of ways you can start making money as a stay at home mom or dad. There’s no need to head out into the workforce, when your work at home is so much more important!
When my children were born, we decided that I’d stay home to raise them. I’ve taken on a few part-time jobs here and there, I’ve blogged, sold stuff on eBay and craft shows, done a lot of freelance writing and as you know, I have an Etsy shop where I sell my adorable little doodles as stationery. Suffice it to say, I’ve done a lot of different things over the years to help create a second income for our family so that I could continue staying home with our kiddos and it hasn’t always been easy…but, it’s always been worth it.
So, if you’re on the hunt for ways you can start making money as a stay at home mom or dad, then you’re in the right place. Below, I’ve compiled a list of 9 ways that you can boost your income without ever leaving your house. Each suggestion links to an article, tutorial or post with a ton more information, so feel free to click around!
