Being a stay-at-home parent is a full-time job. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a full-time paycheck. As a result, it can be hard for some families relying on just one income to make ends meet or build savings. Good news is, there are ways to start earning from home without leaving the house or sacrificing your time with the kids. These opportunities enable you to make some cash while your children are at school, asleep, or even while they’re home and wide awake!
Make money by flexing your creativity:
- Make Money With Your Blog
If you haven’t used your free time between changing diapers, washing clothes and shuttling kids around to hop on the blog bandwagon, it’s worth considering this potential source of income. And just because you’re a parent doesn’t mean you have to write about parenting issues. In fact, given that there already are so many blogs about life as a mom (or dad), consider writing about another topic about which you are passionate. The more original, entertaining and informative you are, the more likely you’ll gain followers – and you need an online following to make money.
- Sell Baked Goods
A friend of mine who is a single mom started making cupcakes as a way to keep herself occupied while staying with her dad when he was undergoing chemotherapy. She posted a picture of her cupcakes on Facebook and instantly received several orders from friends. But for that, you need to have a good circle or audience to taste your delicacy.
- Tutor Students
If you are academically specialized, then be a private tutor. Share your knowledge with struggling students. Find students looking to improve their grades on your own through your kids’ schools. For becoming a tutor too you need to show up your skills. The process seems long.
- Selling Online
If you’re crafty and artistic, you could start looking into online selling your crafts. You can also make good money cleaning out your home and posting your stuff for sale online through ebay or Olx. You need to have a good eye and good source of knowledge iin the field of crafts that you want to sell.

- Affiliate Marketing
Did you know that you don’t even need to have your own products or services to earn a hefty paycheck? This is the beauty of affiliate marketing. You promote other people’s stuff and when someone buys, you collect a cut of the sale price! That’s it. Where do you promote affiliate products? On your blog, social media, articles you write… pretty much anywhere!
- Invest in beauty
According to me, this is one of the easiest ways to an additional source of income to your home. Invest your time and meet new people with Oriflame. Founded in 1967, Oriflame sells beauty products directly in more than 60 countries. Its wide portfolio of Swedish, nature-inspired, innovative beauty products is marketed through approximately three million independent Oriflame Consultants, who generate annual sales of around €1.5 billion. Oriflame provides business opportunity to millions of women across the globe.
Modicare is yet another direct selling organization that offers more than 150 products from various categories which women can easily sell while working from their home. It is an alternative to traditional employment for those who desire a flexible income to supplement their household income, or whose responsibilities or circumstances do not allow for regular part-time or full-time employment.
