Let’s be honest, being a stay at home mom already feels like a job right? But its just too bad we don’t get paid for handing out hugs and kisses. 

Not to worry though, there are plenty of ways you can make money as a stay at home mom now a days. The internet has truly put some juice in our stay at home mom money cups! 

This list of ways you can make money is not your average though, I mean arent most of these list written by men or women who infact are not staying at home, day in and day out with their snack loving toddlers? 

Not to say they dont know a few things, but lets be honest, you need some real recommendations to make money from an actual stay at home mom. 

I’ve been a stay at home mom for over 5 years now.

And have been able to make money while being with my kids 24/7  from many of the suggestions I will give you below! 

Lets dive right in 

Make Money As a Stay at Home MOM… With a Business

It can definitely be said that every stay at home mom is not ready to have a start and manage a complete business. Because I mean the laundry is already enough to manage! LOL 

But really owning and operating a business as a stay at home mom can seem very stressful.

Which only adds to the long list of duties you already have to do. 

And while I do understand this, just hear me out…

You can have a business of any kind today, and the ones we mention today can all be done from the comfort of your home! 

Not to mention, these businesses mean that you’re in control of your time and are able to set a schedule that works best for you and your kids

As I mentioned earlier, the internet has really changed a lot of things. And one of these is the way you should look at owning a business. 

But lets get into the list so you know exactly what I mean 

  1. eBay Store 

yea I know you probably never considered having an ebay store a business. But honestly, its a business that my family benefited from for many years. 

What I love about this business is yes you are in control of your time but you also are able to sell things that are no longer useful for you. 

Hello very expensive baby things lol 

Ebay allows you to sell things whether new or used and be able to make a profit from them. 

You can start by selling all the things in your home that you no longer need. And this list continues to grow as a mother with growing children

From car seats to strollers, and anything in between will be a great start to an ebay store front. 

You will also need no money to start. Ebay will collect a fee based on the money you make per item after it is sold. 

  1. Etsy Store 

Etsy has come a long way and you may be thinking that you have no interest in being crafty or making any personalized items. 

While etsy is wildly known for their custom hand made items they also have a great selection of downloadable items as well

Think yearly planners, stickers, printable art etc

All of these things you can successfully sell on an etsy shop 

Infact while looking up the info for this article I came across an etsy shop that only sells instant downloads for planners 

The average priced item they have is $5

And you might be thinking, yea thats never going to add up to be anything substantial

But this small shop has 79,000 orders fulfilled 

And they only had to upload the file once, once a customer orders it

They immediately get the file emailed to them 

SO they have made about $400,000 from a download! 

Really mind blowing

Make Money As a Stay at Home Mom… With a Side Hustle

This is where I fell in love with the internet. I didn’t realize there were so many ways to make money from the internet even just a few years ago. But after having my twins, I made it my mission to find out how I would be able to stay at home with them. 

3. Affiliate Marketer 

This is such an amazing side hustle because it pays you for things you already do. 

For example: Lets say you really loved the new kitchen gadget you got off amazon, and you told your friends about it, who ended up buying it and loving it too. 

In this situation, you would get paid by amazon for referring a customer to them. 

Not many people realize huge companies like Amazon realize the power of word of mouth and are willing to pay you for it. 

As a complete beginner too! 

This side hustle does not require you to have any prior experience or any money upfront to start. 

And in my opinion this is one of the best ways to make money as a stay at home mom. 

This is the course I took to learn more about how to do it, but if you just want to learn how you can do it with amazon this book can get you started. 

4. Youtuber 

Normally I wouldnt mention this because I can feel the eye rolls you give when you just read it. 

 But hear me out, youtube has provided me some of my biggest payouts to date.

Yes it does take some work to get started and you may not see any money at first as it takes some time for youtube to monetize your channel. 

But what if you were able to make money from day one with youtube! 

Yes if you put affiliate marketing and youtube together you dont have to wait on youtube to start making money from your channel. 

Infact, I dont recommend you start youtube only for the ad revenue ( it really can fluctuate quite a bit) 

But you can start with any niche you like, homemaking, homeschooling, beauty, fashion etc and pair it with an affiliate program (trust me there is almost an affiliate program for every brand.. Just google it)

4. Traditional Work From Home Jobs- No Phone

Most online jobs can require you to be on the phone, and for alot of stay at home moms (especially those with toddlers) find it hard to take calls during a standard 8 hour shift wit their children at home with them. 

And I completely understand this, but working from home does not mean you have to be on the phone

There are plenty of non phone remote jobs you can do as a stay at home mom. Some of these include virtual assistant, data entry clerk, and social media manager. 

While it may be challenging to find these job postings they are out there!
