Raising children and keeping your home in top shape can be challenging at times. Even though you love to spend more time with your children, money is usually tight when there is only one income in the household. So, knowing ways to earn and save money while you are staying at home sounds like music to your ears. Here are some tips to get you started with…
1. HOBBIES OR BUSINESS STARTERS
Do you love to make cupcakes, jewelry, or essence oils? Turn your hobby into your own business. Be your own boss and master your own schedule by thinking about your skill set and hobbies then, start making an online business out of it. Free platforms for selling or making your own online shop such as: Carousell and Tictail, are available online.
2. STAY-AT-HOME NANNY SWAP
Instead of paying costly bills on daycare or babysitting, have another stay-at-home mom to take turns in taking care of your children. Watch your friend’s children for one weekend then, she will watch yours for the next. This will not only save you money but it will also give one day off for you to relax and run errands.
3. TIDY UP AND SELL STUFF ONLINE
Tidy up the clutter in your closet and find the things that you deem to be unused or underused because you can sell them online. The old clothing articles of your children that are still in good condition can be sold too. How about the costumes that you only used once? Get rid of it and earn money simultaneously.
Try selling your items to the worldwide marketplace platform of eBay and Gumtree. And, consider selling your items to your friends and family by posting an ad on Facebook. Save money by buying bargain items in these sites.
4. BECOME A SALES REP
Have the freedom to design a schedule that works for you without thinking of building a business from ground up and still be able to nurture your loving children!
