I am a stay-at-home mom. Have been for almost 11 years. My "job" consisted of raising our kids. Making dinner and making sure my husband has food and coffee for the day. I didn't really think much about working from home. I started blogging about 7 years ago. I was really good at it and then this pandemic hit. Just like everyone else in the world, we had to stop what we were doing and tr to figure out this new way of life. The fact that this hit our oldest child hard because she was in school one day and didn't go back, I quit writing. I shut down all my blogs and focused on my family.
Now, I am back in the game. With all my experience in finding easy ways, and not so time consuming, to make money, I compiled a list of that I have done and am doing.
1: It is not really making money per say. But saying money in a cash back way. I use IBotta, Fetch and Checkout51. You submit your receipts and earn cash back. You can have it deposited or get digital gift cards. What I am doing is saving up the cash back for an AMAZON Gift card. Not using it until Christmas. Then shopping on Amazon for all my gifts.
I know it isn't a lot, but it is not meant to make you rich.
2: I don't do them often because they do take a bit more time but doing surveys on your phone. You can totally do it while pooping. Or hiding in the closet. The most popular one is InBox Dollars. If you do an app search or Google search you will find many.
3: Since I am a homeschool mom, I look for fun ways for my kids o learn. I set up a website to for other homeschoolers. On my site people have paid access to my kids' reading books out load. It is a great way for them to become better readers and entertains other kids.
4: The thing I do to make extra money is for other business owners and writers. It is pretty easy but not for everyone. I say easy because I taught myself how to do it. The reason I make great money doing this is because others do find it not easy. But it helps their business. I make landing pages. What is a landing page? It is a page customized to everything you do. It has clickable links to all your side hustles, or in the case of writers, a place where people can find all your writings. I don't charge a lot and the fact it is more personal than other sites that offer the same thing, I make great money.
Share your ways of making money while staying home with the kids. Aso, follow me for more fun ways to make money.
