Stay-at-home moms have a myriad of responsibilities. But while it’s a full-time thing, it doesn’t come with a full-time paycheck. 

With bills piling up and unforeseen challenges like the pandemic threatening your family’s finances, it makes sense to consider some income-generating opportunities.

Here’s some great news: You can make money in the safety and comfort of your home. Read on as we dig into ten incredible ways to make money as a stay-at-home mom. 

10 Flexible Ways Moms Can Earn Money From Home

Here are some ideas on earning extra cash on the side or a full-time paycheck while managing your household.

1. Make money from blogging

Got a passion for writing? Consider creating a blog and earn income from affiliate commissions and sponsored ads.

The great thing about having your blog is you get to choose what and when to write. For instance, if you love cooking and exploring new bites, you can put up a food blog.

Or perhaps you want to share some of your experiences, takeaways, and tips with fellow moms. A parenting blog is your best bet. Whatever you choose to blog about, the key is to start writing and be consistent.

2. Sell stuff online

Selling online is a sure way to make some money. Consider setting up an online business and offer refurbished goods, customized shirts, or other valuable products to make some profit.

You can also earn money from selling your crafts, graphics, old books, CDs, and games. Additionally, you can use your photography skills and sell your work to image buying sites like Shutterstock and Getty Images.

3. Leverage your writing skills

Many stay-at-home moms will find freelance writing an ideal job. If you have great writing, proofreading, and editing skills, offer your services to clients looking for part-time or full-time writers and editors.

You’ll find many clients looking for writers to help them with their website content as more and more businesses move online. Other writing-based jobs you can consider are copywriting, blogging, news writing, ghostwriting, and copy editing.

4. Offer tutoring services

Are you a math genius, multilingual, or gifted musician? Consider offering tutoring services to kids who need help on a particular subject or field.

Even if you don’t have formal training as an educator, you can teach students skills in certain fields like music and arts. Online tutoring is becoming increasingly popular, so landing a tutoring gig is much easier.

You can also consider offering homework help, giving lessons, or formally tutoring kids outside your home for a couple of hours. Let fellow parents know you’re offering tutoring services by advertising them on social media. Earn cash while helping others learn!

5. Bake and sell your goodies

Moms who are excellent bakers and cooks have a great potential to make money from their passion or hobby. If you enjoy cooking, you can offer pre-packed meals and have them delivered to your customers’ doorsteps.

If baking is something you love doing, offer your goodies, pastries, and unique creations through an online platform. Social media channels, such as Facebook Marketplace and Instagram make excellent channels for promoting and selling homemade goodies.

6. Earn from your IT skills

Many computer-related tasks are easy to accomplish remotely, especially if you have outstanding IT skills. For example, if you are a coding expert or know how to build websites, you can look into these opportunities to earn money from home.

As earlier mentioned, many businesses are going digital. Given this, leveraging your computer skills makes a lucrative way to earn cash as eCommerce becomes increasingly crucial in the “new normal.”

You can look for remote coding and programming jobs or explore other excellent freelancing options like website design and video editing. Other than these, you can consider becoming a webinar presenter, an online community manager, or a social media evaluator.

7. Establish a from-home coaching biz

Got a penchant for training and leadership? A from-home coaching business makes a lucrative option, too. This is because many individuals are looking for coaches for personal guidance.

If you believe you have the appropriate skills, you can offer your services as a parenting or life coach. Advertise your services on digital channels to attract potential clients, and conduct online coaching sessions at home.

8. Declutter and sell your pre-loved items

Decluttering your unused stuff is another way to generate some cash. Go through your closet and drawers and take out all the items you no longer need.

Consider selling your pre-loved items to your friends or hold a garage sale. Alternatively, you can post them on websites like Carousell or social media, including Instagram and Facebook Marketplace.

9. Rent out a real estate property

Do you have an extra room, an apartment, or a condo unit you can rent out? Consider listing your available spaces on Airbnb.

The platform allows you to set the price, availability, and booking requirements for guests looking for a place to stay in. It’s an outstanding way to make passive income without spending a lot of effort.

10. Earn extra cash from babysitting

Yes, you already have your kids to look after, but you can also consider getting paid for hosting a playdate. If you enjoy taking care of kids, why not make money from it?

Since you’re already watching over kids at home, you can offer to babysit family or friends occasionally. That, or run a formal, licensed daycare center outside your home.

Wrapping Up

It’s clear why many stay-at-home moms are looking for ways to earn some cash. One-income families are particularly challenged during the pandemic, and these opportunities can be significantly helpful for stay-at-home moms.

These jobs let you make money while your kids are asleep or even when they’re wide awake. So while it may take a bit of trial and error to find out what works for you, it’s worth giving a shot.

Remember that working from home requires focus, self-discipline, and time management. If you’re decided to help your family with expenses, keep this in mind, and keep going even when things get tough. You’re a terrific momma, and you can make it!
