Stay-at-home moms, especially those with young children, know the value of family time. We want to be with our kids whenever possible. Most of us are doing well before this Covid-19 pandemic hit us. The impact of the ongoing inflation in our lives forced most of the stay-at-home moms to look for side hustles to bring in extra income to help the family’s breadwinner in achieving financial goals.
Do you know that there are ways to make money from home without having to sacrifice your precious time with your family? Having extra earnings, you can achieve financial freedom and estimate your savings for your kids’ college education.
Here are five side hustles that stay-at-home moms can do:

Sell Your Stuff
This is one of my favorite ways to make money from home because it’s so flexible and rewarding. You can sell anything from clothing and accessories to household goods or beauty products — and even offer services like copywriting and virtual assistant work.
Selling can be done in many different ways, including:
If you have a few things around the house that you no longer use or need, put them up for sale at a garage sale. You can sell anything from clothes and toys to old furniture and electronics.
For rare and valuable items try to sell them first to your friends who might want them, then take advantage of the online platforms to sell your items like Amazon, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, and more.
You’ll make some extra money while decluttering your home at the same time!
If you have a knack for baking, you can make some extra money by selling your homemade baked goods online.
Blogging is one way to make money on the Internet. You can start a blog about anything and make money from it through ads and affiliate marketing. You just need to decide on what niche and blogging platform you’ll get started
The most common types of blogs are fashion, parenting, home and garden, food, lifestyle, travel, and technology.
You can start a parenting blog. You can write about your kids, share photos of them and their activities, or give advice on parenting issues. This is one of the most popular niches for bloggers because there are so many people who want to read about parenting topics.
Blogs can also be great ways to stay connected with family and friends who live far away. You can write about your experiences in a new city and post pictures of your hometown as well!
Blogging is also a great way to share your creativity with others in an easy format that anyone can read. If you have any artistic talents or love crafting things out of old materials (eBay has everything), then try sharing some tutorials on how you made something cool at home!
Work remotely as a virtual assistant. Work in the comfort of your home with no commute, office dress code, or schedule to worry about. Virtual assistants can choose to work full-time, part-time, or on an as-needed basis—all depending on their schedules and priorities.
What is a virtual assistant (VA)? A VA is someone who provides administrative support to clients/businesses.
Drop shipping is a way to sell products through an online store without having to keep inventory or ship items yourself. You set up an account with a drop shipper, then list the items for sale on your website. When someone buys an item, the drop shipper ships it directly to your customer. You don’t have any of the costs associated with storing or shipping inventory. This can be a great way to start selling products online without having much upfront capital or experience managing an online store.
If you love writing then freelance writing might be a great option for you as it allows you to work from home while still earning an income. Freelancers usually get paid per article written so it could take some time before seeing any profits but once established as a writer then this could be a great side hustle option for stay-at-home moms who love writing!
Many online freelancers can do their work at any time of day or night so they don’t have to worry about missing out on opportunities because they’re not in the office during regular business hours.
Side hustles are a great way to earn extra money if you’re a stay-at-home mom. The best part? They don’t take away from your precious family time.
