Money. Your family's financial picture is obviously important as basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, and health care costs need to be covered. Beyond the essentials, household needs vary, and it is up to you and your family to decide whether staying at home, working part time, or working full time will work best. If you decide to stay home, consider what the loss of income will mean for the family and for your own spending. Make sure to discuss this with your significant other, and if you both need help, consult with a financial planner, advises Karen S. Yasgoor, PhD, an organizational psychologist in private practice in La Jolla, Calif., and owner of the Center for Work Life Assessment.
I CD my LO goes to daycare. He does pockets there, it's easy for them they just put them into his own dirty bin instead of the trash. I have all snaps but looking back maybe some velcro ones would have made some people more comfortable but oh well. The wash is easy and stuffing and sorting takes less time than putting away my own clothes. I also might be slightly addicted...I dry them in the dryer too. Even if you didn't want to if you did covers and prefolds/flats the covers would all dry by the time the prefolds and flats were done.

When Deeanne Akerson launched Kindred Bravely, the maternity and breastfeeding apparel line, she was a stay-at-home mother of two small children working out of her guest bedroom and running a business on her own. A year into running the start-up she needed to hire her first employee, a part-time customer service representative. Her hire was a mother of three who wanted to work flexible hours to take care of her family.
As Facebook FB, -0.92%   chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg wrote in her book “Lean In,” people who leave the workforce also may be giving up future opportunities, including promotions and raises. As a result, even if originally child care costs are a wash, when children are older and able to attend school, parents may make up for those early expenses in higher wages.
This article is FANTABULOUS!!! Thank you sooo much! It is very overwhelming trying to sort through what may or may not be a scam on-line. This is the first time I have found information that seems promising. I am looking to be able to earn enough to support myself (I do not have kids) since health issues make it extremely difficult to work outside of my home. Keep up your great work!

Hi Emma, Sorry to hear about your job loss and we hope things are going better for you. The jobs and resources in this post have been researched and they are legitimate. My advice to you would be to determine what marketable skills you have that could help you earn an income from an online job. Can you type well? Are you a skilled writer or editor? Do you have amazing organizational skills? Are you good at problem solving? If you are still in need of a job you should look into customer service rep positions or maybe even look into direct sales if you are a people person. Good luck! 

Pew researchers speculate that the downturn in the US economy—causing fewer employment opportunities and jobs with lower wages—as well as changes in cultural norms are behind the increase in SAHMs. Media hype claiming there’s an entire opt-out generation of moms choosing to leave high paying careers is just that—hype. The percentage of affluent SAHMs (with annual household incomes nearing $132,000) is actually quite small.
Thanks so much for this great article. I’ve been trying to get a graphic design business but am having trouble finding business. I’d also love to blog but don’t know where to start. There are so many amazing blogs out there that it’s hard to think I could have anything new to contribute. But my son is 6 months now and it seems like a perfect time to get started…thanks for the ideas and encouragement!
This one can be very tricky. If you are a single parent and have decided to receive social assistance, they do not allow you to collect assistance if you choose to go to school and take out ANY kind of student loan, part-time or full-time to cover the cost of your schooling. If you had some money in savings, social assistance used to force you live on that until you had no savings left, I'm not sure if they still maintain that policy.

My mind remains a blank slate. I’m not a salesperson, a lyrical genius, or crafty. After working as a RN for many years and struggling with my own health issues, I was forced to leave the only career I found true passion in. Two years ago, I rediscovered that passion for learning and became interested in. Sex Ed. Not the Birds and the Bees from middle school, but the deeper, more intimate details. After years of absorbing information, I found giving advice and sharing knowledge to other woman was as rewarding, if not more, than nursing. I’ve even worked with some men and a few couples who now report an active and fulfilling sex life. Finally, I feel I have regained my self worth and again feel the satisfaction of helping others.
Great article! I’m doing direct selling at the moment and absolutely loving it! Never thought it would be something I would get into but when you have a strong desire to stay at home with your child everyday but still need to earn money you will give anything a go right 🙂 and I’m so glad I did. The work involved itself could not be easier, I run my business all from my phone. And I also love the personal development you gain from an industry like this, you learn so much about yourself more than you could from any job working for someone else in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong it is hard work, you have to put a lot in to be successful, but when you are putting all that time and effort into yourself and creating success for YOU rather than an employer / boss the results are so rewarding!! If anyone is looking into getting on board something similar I am happy to pass on some info 🙂 Bec.
Adelaide, I can tell you right now that you are not incompetent! You used the word “well” and “too” correctly. As an employer, I can’t even count how many applications I’ve filed to the back because of poor grammar! (some of you might be thinking why is she on this site if she has her own business… I don’t want to be at my business, I want to be able to pick up my girls from school!) I market for an online store by referring shoppers, but I can’t replace my income yet. Maybe when my student loans are paid! I’m making that my goal!

You can totally do this. We didn't start right away honestly just because I didn't originally consider cloth diapering but we've been using cloth since dd was 3 months old and she's close to 6 months now. I also work 32 hours but with lunch and my commute I'm away from home during work week 44 hours. I also bf so am dealing with that as well. I honestly think washing the diapers is way easier than washing and drying bottles to use while I'm gone. Plus cloth diapers are a ton of fun.

Now I plan on staying home with my daughter and cherishing these growing moments together. I'll be doing online classes to finish my grade 12 and then do more online courses to become an education support worker. By the time I'm done my schooling my daughter will be ready for Kindergarten and I can go to work! In the mean time I might apply for a part time evening job and also sell my art work online!
Find a routine that works for you and your kids. Don’t rely on screens or tablets all the time (it makes it old news when you have something important like a meeting to do) and be patient. There will be times that getting work done just isn’t going to happen but try to make that time up somehow whether it be staying up a little later or waking up a little earlier. There will be stages when it’s going to be harder and stages where it’s much easier… Overall, it IS possible to have the best of both worlds; being home with your baby AND making an income- just have faith, put in the work, and know that those rough patches don’t last forever. – Kara | Foxtrot & Pennies

I also know mothers who have earned extra income by putting their newfound child-rearing skills to work by offering in-home babysitting and daycare services, and others who have found side work with businesses like Mary Kay Cosmetics, and Stella and Dot jewelry. Both of those options require some initial investment though, so do your homework before you dive right in.
The washer doesn't have any settings for a pre-soak or extra rinse so I have to run 3 separate wash loads (warm with cold rinse as my "pre-rinse" then hot wash cold rinse with detergent then warm wash cool rinse as my final rinse), and run down and add quarters after each wash load. Then I run everything through the dryer on low to dry the pocket shells and wet bags, then pull out all the PUL and run another dryer load on high to dry the inserts and prefolds (I have a lot of bamboo inserts which take forever to dry).

I’ve tried everything to be able to work from home. Blogging, crowd sourcing, essential oils, digital assistant. The thing that I’ve been successful at is a Beachbody coach. I run challenge groups and help teach that the key to a healthy life means eating healthy and working out.

I have my hand in almost every one of these categories. You know, of course that I blog here at AffordingMotherhood.com. I have a couple of books on Amazon: 76 Free Things to Do with Kids and Natural Birth Stories. I also have a shop on Etsy where I design purses and knitting needle cases that you can sew yourself.

Have you ever heard of an actuary? In the past, it was used to describe a person who analyzes statistics in order to calculate risks and premiums for insurance companies. However, the job title has expanded to include many more industries that can benefit from data mining and economic forecasting. If you have a degree in mathematics, finance or statistics, look into getting your license through Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) or Society of Actuaries (SOA).

I love this post! I meant to comment on your Facebook post about this and in true new mom fashion, I forgot to come back and do it. So here’s my little story…it has provided WAY more than I initially thought and has continued to provide. I’m a SAHM to a toddler and newborn. I used to teach and my husband teaches as well. After cutting expenses in our own budget, the next best way for us to save more money was to make money. I decided to open an Etsy shop (Joyful Art Designs) and sell printable signs. I spent 6 months preparing to open and a lot of hours the first several months to make it successful. The hard work has paid off and I’ve now replaced my teaching income if I had our two kids in day care. Right now I put in about 1-3 hours a day if I can since we have a newborn. I love blogging, but it’s a hobby, whereas this is a business. Thanks for letting us share our businesses…this is great for those searching to make money.

I have a bachelor’s degree is in pre-elementary education and I am currently pursuing a masters in pre- and elementary education. For the past three years I have worked in daycare, first as a “teacher” in a national chain, and now as a nanny to two beautiful pre-school aged children. Having seen all that I have, I would NEVER leave my child in a daycare, regardless of how high-quality you think it might be. First of all, most daycare providers are under-qualified with little education and not much more experience and ALL are underpaid, which does little for motivation or morale. Granted, most like children and LOVE the little ones they take care of, but that doesn’t do much when they are overworked and undersupported. Secondly, there are many, many things that go on behind daycare doors that parents will NEVER know about, mainly that teachers (at least at my daycare chain, and I taught at two locations) are told to basically lie to parents about the child’s day (make up positive things even if the poor kid cried all day), and sugar coat behavior problems, etc. I (and countless other teachers) were kept over ratio ALL the time, which is a safety and child development issue, and children were repeatedly bounced from classroom to classroom throughout the day, both so teachers could be sent home so the corporation could save a few bucks. I could go on and on about the lies and manipulation, but parents will never get a glimpse of it because teachers and taught be center directors and corporate how to cover things up. As an elementary school teacher-in-training, I have heard repeatedly that the most poorly behaved children are those raised in daycare, and teachers can usually tell who those kids are after the first few days of school because they act out from lack of attention. My experience as a nanny has taught me that there is a better option for those who want to go back to work – I LOVE my kids and we are VERY securely bonded to eachother, I provide consistency and individualized care, and they are able to be much more stimulated than they would be in a daycare setting (we are outside all the time, swim lessons, are lessons, OMSI, baseball, etc). But the children (like my daycare kids) still only see their parents for maybe five hours a day, and they miss them. Even recognizing that having a nanny is a decent option, I still firmly feel that one parent needs to be home with the children, at least while they are little. You would be hard-pressed to find a daycare provider who would not agree with me. And it is not a “conservative” or “liberal” issue. My husband and I are VERY liberal, but we firmly believe that no daycare (or nanny) could ever do what I could do as a mother at home. And it is not financial either. My best friend stays at home and her husband makes $20,000 a year. It is about priorities, and if you are not willing to make children your priority, you shouldn’t have them.


Your blog is very inspiring! Am currently in EBA 3.0 and I need for this to work. LOL! I been a SAHM for years and recently became a school bus driver to earn money and the schedule works around the kids for the most part. But the Hubby’s schedule is changing in Jan. and I have to make this work. Thanks so much all the freebies and inspiring stories.
Do you have a computer and Internet at home? If you have good computer skills (by computer skills I mean knowledge of Windows, email, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) You can get into the virtual assistant market which is growing all the time. This option may not be for anyone as it requires extensive self-promotion and longer hours, but many stay-at-home parents love this job and have been very successful at it. There is also blogging, which requires time to build up enough traffic to your site to make significant money from advertising, but is still worth setting up as it costs little more than your time when you first start out.
I started our Etsy shop when our daughter was 6 months old and I stopped working full time away from home. It initially started out as a way to earn a little extra money but we’ve put a lot of energy into it the last two years and have grown our Etsy shop to be one of our family’s primary sources of income. Our Etsy shop is MontanaSolarCreations. I also write a blog, Montana Homesteader, about our adventures in modern day homesteading. I monetized the blog and started making money with it the first month we started it. It is now about 8 months old and it has been making enough money each month to pay some of our monthly household bills – Annie Bernauer at Montana Solar Creations.
When our third child, Katie, was born a good friend who also used cloth diapers gave me a dozen contour diapers, some PUL covers and cloth wipes as a baby shower gift. These were the best cloth diapers I had tried so far. They were so easy to use and only leaked a little around the velcro when the diaper was soaked. We still had to use disposable diapers at night, but I thought I'd found the cloth diapering system for me! I was satisfied with this system and used it on our fourth child, Jonah, replacing diapers and covers as they wore out.

After I got a handle on all the different fabrics, styles and options I had to try making them myself. Although cloth diapers save money in the long run, they do require an initial investment, and I wanted to save money by sewing my own. I started out with two yards of hemp fabric, one yard of pul, some touchtape (like velcro) and one pattern. Soon I had to try another pattern, then another, and another. Although I liked the diapers I was making from the patterns, they just didn't fit my chubby-thighed Zach right, leaving red marks across his legs. I found directions on drafting your own cloth diaper pattern online and created my own pattern, making sample diapers and tweaking the pattern until I had the fit I wanted.

You already spend way too much time pinning on Pinterest and posting fabulous pics on Instagram. Now get paid for your social-media savvy! The social-media evaluator will need to improve the relevancy of the newsfeed for a leading global social-media client. You’ll need to commit to working one to four flexible hours a day, five days per week. For some projects, at least one day must be a weekend day. Doing outstanding work will make you eligible for additional social-media projects. To qualify, you’ll have to perform online daily social-media use (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), have strong communication skills and a high-speed Internet connection. 
Your significant other. Your partner's support of your decision is critical; otherwise there could be many difficulties. If the person that you're living with is unsupportive, he or she may not help you with finances, child rearing, or household chores. Resentments could build up on both sides. If you and your significant other disagree over whether you should stay home or work, Yasgoor recommends a six-month trial period followed by an evaluation to see how one option works for the family. Also, whatever course of action you take, make sure to run by potential issues with your partner. If you decide to work, for example, it's important to figure out details such as how long maternity and paternity leave will be, who will pick up kids from day care or school, or who will care for them when they're sick, says Leslie Morgan Steiner, author of Mommy Wars.

When you eat while distracted, you’re missing out on huge pieces of the experience of eating. You’re not paying attention to where you are. You’re not paying a...ttention to who you’re with and, most importantly for those of us who battle over eating, you’re not paying attention to the food that’s going into your mouth or your inner hunger and satisfaction cues.
Pockets are one of the most popular ways to cloth diaper. They are daddy friendly and daycare friendly. While All in ones and All in 2s are gaining in popularity (see the vocabulary definitions of these), pockets are easier to clean, dry faster, and are more customizable for your baby's wetness because you can pair different types of inserts (also called or boosters, or soakers...whatever you choose to call them).
Every working parent dreams of being able to spend more time with their children, whether or not they love their careers. But is choosing to work from home the right choice for you? Could you manage to balance all the demands on your time? Would you lose too much of yourself? These are important questions to ask before jumping in with both feet. It isn’t easy, even if it can be enormously worth it!
Unfortunately, since most of were taught that "more money and more things" leads to "more happiness," and since we've all been given easy access to credit (allowing us have more things with less upfront money), the financial aspects of quitting work to stay at home must now be considered. Because regardless of how much happier you and the children might be if you could quit work to be a stay at home parent, that happiness can be easily offset by an onslaught of creditors pounding on your door -- all looking for repayment for all the happiness they fronted you in the past.
I LOVE cloth diapers!! I didn’t use them for my first baby, but my daughter has been in them since a few weeks old. I discovered what the gel in diapers really is and just couldn’t put that on my newborn!! I use earth’s best diapers if I need disposable and they work great with no gel or crap! I’ve used Thirsties Duo Snap (fit longer with adjustable crotch snaps) covers and prefolds the whole time, I find it really easy! We had to change to folding them tri-fold and using a fleece liner every single time to help my babies sensitive eczema skin stay smooth and happy! I hate the extra laundry (just because I hate laundry in any fashion) BUT I love that I’m saving our family money, that I’m helping my babies skin and that I conquered a goal to try and cloth diaper! For a long time I was using washcloths as wipes with a spray of water/baby soap/baby oil and that was also working great. I bought a bunch of wipes on sale a bit ago though but as soon as they are gone I’ll be back at cloth! I also really recommend snaps over velcro! Velcro gets stuck to everything even if its closed and it just doesn’t stay on my chubby baby as well.
