Whether by choice or last resort, being a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) is quite an endeavor. It’s a full-time job on it’s own, but it’s hard to fight that feeling that you want to bring in an income too.
Luckily, it’s totally possible to be a SAHM and bring home some moolah. In fact, if you play your cards right, you could bring in a substantial amount of money.
Without further ado, here are 60 ways to make money as a stay at home mom:
If you haven’t heard of RedBubble before, I’m so so so excited to be the one to tell you about it! Especially if you’ve experimented with (and hopefully loved) Zazzle. They’re very similar, only RedBubble is one thousand times easier.
The holidays are so close that I can almost taste them and that has me excited for so many different reasons, one of which is that I consistently make the most Zazzle sales over the holiday season (and you know how much I love making money on Zazzle). No matter what you do, odds are in your favor that you’ll make more this time of year just because people are shopping so much. But there are still some things that you can do to prepare your Zazzle store to increase your sales even more.
As you already know, I love love love using Zazzle as a creative outlet…and of course, to make a little extra money 🙂 . So when a new and somewhat odd product is introduced, I usually jump on it right away to see what I can create. And to my delight, occasionally these products actually make me some money. Which I LOVE.
I am one of those people that takes photos of everything when I vacation. And I mean everything. Cool flowers, neat buildings, interesting wall paper, and tons of landscapes. So when I discovered how to make extra money with vacation photos, I got that crazy entrepreneur-butterfly-itch that hits me time and again.
Now, obviously you can post your photos on sale at stock photography sites – and you probably could make some money that way. But that’s not nearly as exciting and doesn’t get your creative juices flowing like creating actual products. And it’s much easier than it sounds. (more…)
I’ve said it time and again, and I’ll say it once more – I love Zazzle. There are so many fun components about it and best of all, it pays (I’m not going to lie…that’s one of my favorite parts).
I’m a huge fan of making money from your hobbies and Zazzle is perfect for that. And honestly, once you get good at it, it can pay far more than what your accountant will consider hobby income.
So how, exactly, can you do this?
Not to overwhelm you, but there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of options on Zazzle. It didn’t start that way, but it has done some serious growing over the past few years and now it is shocking what you can make. Amidst all the options, I’ve done my best to highlight the easiest, most profitable, and coolest products to focus on. (more…)
I am the last person in the world you would ever peg as someone that designs and sells wedding invitations, but it’s true. In fact, it’s one of my favorite hobbies. And not only does it earn me some extra money, but it is pretty easy and extremely flexible – you can work on them anytime, anywhere (which I’m always a fan of).
If you read my posts regularly, you already know I’m a huge fan of Zazzle and once again, that is the resource I use for creating and selling wedding collections. I love, love, love Zazzle, so I use it for all kinds of creations, but wedding collections are really popular there and for good reason. There are so many great ideas and you’re able to customize everything. I actually used Zazzle products for my own wedding.
So here’s how it happens. (more…)
