5 Tips for Stay at Home Moms

Being that my life is about to be a bit more flexible (details to come) - I am reaching out to all the stay at home Mommy's out there!  

20 Quotes For Challenging Times:

What is your BIGGEST Challenge with being a 
Stay at Home Mom? 

How do you handle the flexibility through the day?  

"In your morning prayers each day, ask Heavenly Father to guide you to recognize an opportunity to serve one of His precious children." - M Russell Ballard:
I am a list person and have put together five (5) things that I wanted to share on how I 'plan' on handling my new found freedom of being out of the brick and mortar. 
Maybe it can help other Moms who are as apprehensive about transitioning into the Stay at Home Mom field.

Tips for Stay at Home Moms

  1. Create a schedule.  - I am a very visual person and tend to list out everything that I wish to complete and feel accomplished when I am able to check something off the list as I go. I think that this could be handy when trying to design my day. 
  2. Be realistic about goals. - When I sit down to create my list, I always allow for some "flex" time for those things that come up unexpectedly.  I try to set goals for my day but I try to also stay in a frame of mind that it is OK to challenge some things but to think about what the day holds, i.e. I write down that we are going to the park from 11:30 - 12:00 and it rains - well we will not meet this goal today and that is alright! 
  3. Get inspired. - I am a crafty person. I love doing this and that and I think that it is important to get my kiddos involved, especially as they hold the same craftiness!  I also think that spending some time working on our alphabet, numbers, and writing our name is just as important- whether your inspiration for making this happen is a white board, chalk board or learning books!
  4. Make Mommy friends. - This is really important. When you are at the park and your kids are playing- that is a common ground with another Mom who has her little's playing as well. Strike up a friendship, make play dates and take time our for a little girls night here and there away from Hubby's and Kiddos. It can make a world of difference.
  5. Decide if you might want to try working from home. - I know, it sounds scary, but there are a ton of things that you can do working at home, and not all of them involve heavy customer service or being on the phones all day.  Many offer flexibility and a chance to find your inner entrepreneur!

Part 2 : 5 More ways to Earn Money from Home - Side Hustle

5 Ways to Earn an Extra $500 Per Month From Home

Making money from home is such an awesome feeling. It’s great to be able to contribute to your family’s financial situation from the comfort of your home. And it’s also great that there are online jobs that will fit just about every single personality.

If you’re looking to make some extra cash here are:

Five ways to make an extra $500 per month from home!

1. Become a Search Engine Evaluator

Search engine evaluators are hired by search engines like Google to verify the accuracy of certain search engine results. These jobs typically pay around $10-$12 per hour which would mean you’d need to work 50 hours per month to earn the extra $500.

You can sign up for search engine evaluator jobs through places like LeapForce.

2. Sell Crafts on Etsy

I just put in my first Etsy order last month and I am in love. I also spent way, way more money than I normally would for two reasons. 
  • First, I loved the product and couldn’t find it anywhere else.  
  • And second, I wanted to support fellow entrepreneurs.

If you’re crafty whether that be making actual physical products like picture frames, candles or soap or are very good at making digital prints, Etsy could be quite profitable.

(I paid $42 for three digital print photos! Besides the ink and three pieces of paper that’s all pure profit for the seller!)

3. Test Websites

Like it sounds, website testers test the “usability” of websites. As a website tester you look at the overall layout of a website, critique it, and make a video of it. You can get paid around $10 per website tested which generally takes around 20 minutes.
The work might not be extremely consistent but the good news is you only have to review 50 websites to earn that extra $500 per month from home. That’s not a bad deal!

4. Write Articles

The pay you can earn from writing articles varies greatly. You can earn anywhere from $5-$500 for a 500 word article.
If you start at out working for a content mill, like TextBroker for example, you’re only go to make $5-$10 per article. If you go out and find your own clients you can start out in the $20-$30 range or more, depending on your skills.
If you decided to freelance and find your own clients you’d only have to write 17 articles a month to earn $500 at a rate of $30 per article.

5. Babysit

Babysitting is one of those tried, true, and will always be around ways to make money from home. If you babysat one kid at $10 an hour you’d only need to work 50 hours per month for the $500. Get a second kid to watch and you’ve cut your time in half.
This is a good solution for someone who likes kids and has no interest in working online.

There are a ton of options when it comes to earning extra money from home. If you feel like nothing on this list applies to you just do a couple of quick Google searches and you’ll end up with more ideas than you can possibly read.
