Earning Income While Being a SAHM?

Postby ktbug87 » Tue Jun 07, 2011 5:25 pm

My husband and I are determined to have me stay home when our baby comes in January.

The problem is, we need for me to earn about $200/week while I do that.

Does anyone have any suggestions on things I could do? We've spoken about taking another child in and getting income that way (I have extensive nanny experience), but I would prefer not to.

Any ideas are greatly appreciate!!

Thanks!

I was going to say childcare...one or two kiddos in your care. (depending on childcare costs where you live to make an extra $200/week)

Do you have any crafty skill? I have friends who make bows, tutus, custom shirts, etc...and have made great etsy and local businesses out of it and stay home with their kids!

I started staying home when my son was born and a year later went after my passion with photography. I LOVE being my own boss now and doing what I love, while being able to not miss anything with my kiddos! :)

Be creative too! You'll make it work ;)

Is there something you could do on the weekends? I am a RN and I stay home with the twins mon-fri and then work Sat-Sunday while Dh stays at home. It works out perfectly for us b/c he enjoys his "daddy" time and I enjoy getting out of the house just enough each week to have some adult interaction!

I'm a stay at home mom too... I've been using a website to make money, it all has to do with filling out those silly "GET A FREE IPAD" things or signing up for various websites/coupons. Basically you fill the things out, the advertisers pay the site and you get paid too. It's not much, but at least it's free to do. Last month I earned 75 dollars in two weeks for only a few hours a day and then won first place in the contest they had for doing the most offers. The first place prize was 75 dollars too! LOL. I got some more cloth diaper covers, some fitteds and a wool cover too! So happy.

So far this month I've earned about 15 dollars.

If you have any questions you can message me here.
