I was surprised when you suggested that your baby would receive MORE at daycare…the notion seems very confusing that somehow putting your child in a daycare away from her mother is the ideal in any respect. Trust me…all first time moms worry that they aren’t enough of whatever they need to be for their baby… but babies do not need constant stimulation, or affection, or entertainment. They will thrive without mommy and me music class, signing time and baby art. Since the beginning of time until about 35 years ago when marketers discovered that parents would spend big money on giving their children a head start, babies were observers, they were in the background. They played with sticks, rocks, grass, if they were lucky a wooden spoon and siblings. They spent a lot of time in cradles and even hung off door frames in Victorian times over a chamber pot. Einstein, Beethoven, Freud, Galileo, Jobs, and I were all raised without dazzling pinterest-ized parents and institutionalized early years (I had to put myself in that list because…well it is the only time it would happen;) and I’d say it worked out! Seriously though the baby industry tells us we aren’t enough. It tells me that my toddler playing at my feet with two Tupperware containers needs MORE …all the time more… but after several children I know the truth is they need us. I am blessed to live in a country that provides paid leave for one year for mothers and/or fathers to be home. There is at least a little more of an acknowledgement here that parents matter most. I hope you know how lucky you are to be one of the few American women who gets to be home. It isn’t easy..no not at all, but in 30 years (or ten or five or next week) you won’t regret it! Don’t let the daycare up the street market you away from your child if you don’t have to or want to:)
You will never regret being home with Babywoods. I don’t think (but I guess I could be wrong) that there has ever been anyone on their death bed wishing they spent less time with their loved ones!! We were lucky when our kids were little as my MIL’s sister came from Europe and was our live in nanny. She was already retired and came to the us to get away for a while. She would have stayed with us for free, but we paid her a couple of hundred dollars a month plus room and board, food, etc. She was amazing and our kids called her grandma. I just wish we were smart then and saved and put away a lot of money…but hindsight is always 20/20. Too bad that most of your readers are already people interested in FI and frugality…I wish more youngsters would catch on. Although I’m doing my best by preaching to the my kids and nephews. LOL 

For many moms, the idea of earning money from home rather than trekking off to an office each day has a great amount of appeal. You can get to work in an instant, do your job in your sweatpants if you like, and be at home for your kids when school is out. But setting up that situation for yourself – and making it financially viable – can be tricky. So how do you become a work-at-home mom?

Having strong relationships with your extended network of family and friends is also important. When you start freelancing, don’t fall off the face of the earth! Whether it’s taking time to grab coffee with a friend, calling your mom when you have a free moment or meeting up for a playdate, these small but meaningful actions will keep you connected with your community.
2. Multi-level marketing (MLM) companies—It is important to recognize that there are completely legitimate companies that can offer you great ways to earn extra money. It is likely that you know people who sell products for companies like Amway, Avon, and Tupperware, which are all MLM businesses. Many moms choose to sell products that they love for MLM companies because it often means that they can buy products at a discount and earn a few dollars on the side by selling items to their family, friends, and neighbors. But when signing up with an MLM company, there are important things to consider and watch out for. One study found that, in the first year of signing up, 50 percent of representatives dropped out. After five years, 90 percent of representatives dropped out. So these are not typically long-term opportunities. And, overall, they are often not profitable either. In fact, it was found that only one in 545 representatives made money after accounting for their expenses.9

You’ll also want to establish some space in the house to organize your work activities. Do you have an office, or a desk, or even a corner of the kitchen where you could keep your computer and some paperwork? It’s important to be able to define your space so that you can make a clean separation between your “work-work” and the rest of your life at home. Plus, you don’t want to run the risk of losing important documents.

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!
I really like this article and I think that you have done a wonderful job! I am going to become a new mother here soon and I am really contemplating being a stay at home mom. I would like the additional income so I am hoping to find a job that I can do from home. This is all very new to me and to be honest I am kinda scared. I have been working at my current position for over 6 years now.Do you have any recommendations for me to get started?

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.

It was easier to leave the workforce. My husband was working crazy long hours and we couldn't afford full time help. What a great luxury I had to be able to stay home with the kids, or so I thought. Don't get me wrong, I love my children and I feel incredibly blessed to have been able to be by their sides through every smile of accomplishment and tear of frustration. The problem was that while they blossomed, I shrunk.
I created my own niche after my divorce last year by learning Google Adwords and now handle my own accounts and do contract work for a local digital marketing agency. I set up accounts and rehab / optimize existing ones. Adwords is a platform built for the small solo operator AND big corporations, so there is a lot within the dashboard to sort & sift through. I basically assist small local service businesses get set up right so they don’t continue to lose money. Plus I offer interactive lessons (not something many people do out there at all). Google Adwords is huge and growing (partly how Google makes its BILLIONS). If you love data analysis, marketing in general, writing on point & creative ad copy, and simply LEARNING, the opportunities are there for TRUE self-starters. You also have to have super attention to detail with spelling, etc. I don’t have a college degree, mind you, but was hungry to learn it all. I am at heart a teacher and helper (and have always been geared towards marketing). I have owned my own little businesses as a house cleaner and professional organizer and then segued into Adwords (after building my own cleaning & organizing campaigns). Did so after I had my 2nd boy in 10/2015 and one in K at the time. I had to find a way to work from home because the chaos of meeting the school bus and dropping off and picking up at the sitter was getting a little crazy. 🙂 I recommend looking into Adwords. You can even get certified. That is my next goal.

When I was pregnant and weighing the different options for who would care for my child, I opted to at least make the return to my regular 8-5 after she was born just to see what it would be like, and the anticipation leading up to my return from maternity leave was the worst part. After that, it has been mostly manageable. I’ve enjoyed being able to continue contributing to my family’s income with my paycheck, and believe I’m doing the right thing for my family at this time, even though I miss her during the day.
Great post! For me, I work in a virtual environment. I design clothing on Photoshop, then I upload them to virtual games and sell them to people in the games for money. I usually work 2 to 5 hrs a week and make $300 to $500 a month. It’s just a bit of extra spending money as we have survived for years on one income but it’s nice to have the little extra coming in.
I have two small children and found going to a workplace full time was incredibly difficult alongside meeting the children’s needs (and paying for childcare!). It was very scary leaving a place of security and heading towards the unknown of being self-employed and working from home. I believed in myself and took the plunge to teach online for an established company. It was the best decision. The job is fun and energising and I fit it when my kids are at school. My children are happy and calm and I’m not worried about finances.

LOVE this post!! My husband and I were just discussing this topic earlier this week as a matter of fact!! I feel like I am being pulled in a million different directions….trying to do it all & do it all perfectly!! It will drive a person INSANE, ya know?! I’ve been blogging for about a year & a half now & I still haven’t figured out how to balance it all! I have both kids still at home with me which makes blogging during the daytime difficult…but then if I blog at night after they are in bed, then I feel like I am taking time away from my husband!! I do think you have provided some great tips here & some wonderful reminders that I am going to try to incorporate into our routine! Fingers crossed that one day I will figure it all out!! Thanks for a great post Shaunna!

While not exactly frugal, we just sucked it up and paid. I would have paid for it even if it was more than I made. I’m one of those women that just can’t be a stay-at-home parent – it’s not in me, and there’d have been a lot of mess for Dad to clean up if I had stayed home. We moved to an area where daycare is half what it was in the DC metro area (that’s about all that’s cheaper!), although our district only has half-day Kindergarten. Once Daughter Person starts 1st grade next year, our expenses will be reduced even further. It’s about the same price per day for care before/after kindergarten as it is for full day day care ($30/day vs $35/day).
Awesome Hannah! I really felt like 6 months was the magic number with both of mine too, where we started getting back into a routine. I was just thinking about this today, and I really feel like there’s room for any blogger who is willing to be brave and share their unique perspective and story. You’re the only you! So don’t be intimidated by how many others there are. If you do decide to start one, feel free to email me! I’d love to answer any questions you might have. Have you thought about doing something with your graphic design on Fiverr? Or perhaps contact bloggers, as they often need help making nice Pinnable images.
I know lots of moms are very successful in their MLM careers, but I have been tainted by a few of the bad ones. I constantly get random Instagram messages or Facebook messages of people offering me to join their team, a discount to try products, and one time someone even offered to help me lose my “baby weight.” I did NOT want to be those people, so MLM was out for me.

We are lucky in that my mom, a single woman, wanted to retire and move in with us to raise our son before he goes to preschool (We also get along well with my mom). We will probably put our son in part time daycare when he’s a year old or 18 months, like 2-3 days a week) as at that point, it drops in price and I do want him to socialize with other kiddos (I’m a bit of a homebody so myself alone wouldn’t be good at finding playdates). We’re cloth diapering and I’ve heard anecdotally that that can make potty training “easier” with elimination communication, so I’m hoping getting potty trained faster (if we’re successful) will make cheaper daycare an earlier possibility for us as well.
Would you please provide me with some information about the company that you work with to teach English online? While I don’t have a teaching degree, I do have a degree in communications. I also worked in International Trade so I have a strong background in business terminology. I am an at-home mom and the work sounds ideal. Thank you in advance for any details or advice you can provide.

We don’t have kids, but my two siblings have 2-3 children each and they have different solutions – a frugal one and a not so frugal one. Sister 1 bought a rather cheap home next to my mom out in the country so she watches the two boys 2-3 times a week at her house (one is not in school yet) while she goes to work. She also is a single parent. Sister 2 lives in a major city and has a nanny come three days a week for 12 hour days to watch two kids (costing $40k/year). They have super intense jobs with long hours. Now that she has a third baby, her nanny quit and they are having a hard time finding a (legal) nanny who wants to watch three kids for 10 hours a day. Maternity leave is over, they are in the middle of paternity leave, so they will figure it out soon hopefully! One staying home will not work due to the amount of student loans and mortgage they have. Different solutions for different people even in the same family. There there’s me; no kids, retiring early.
One way to make money at home is sell Valentus products. I am a product of the product…In four months I have lost 25 pounds and 25 inches with just drinking one cup of Valentus Slim Roast per day. I also sell the product and I make money doing it! All it cost was $20 US to become a consultant. I sell my products on my websites and thru word of mouth. That’s it!

First, let me say that I believe all moms are working moms, whether they’re working in the home, out of the home or a little bit of both, as is my current situation. I'm fortunate to be able to stay at home and work. But I'd be lying if I said there weren't times I questioned what I was doing, why I was doing it and if it was really for me. Half a decade and another child later, I still do. This is the hardest gig I've ever had—and that's saying something, because I've had some tortuous jobs!

The heater blasted in the car as I typed furiously on my laptop. I was psyched because I was about to meet my deadline. Suddenly, my baby started wailing. I shut my laptop as if clocking out early, crawled into the backseat, whipped out my boob, and fed him. Over his head, I typed up an apology to one of my bosses on my phone—my work would be late.
The education and childcare sectors have been largely female-oriented. In fact, over 73 percent of educators and almost 95 percent of childcare workers are women.5 So it is no wonder that these fields can offer work-from-home jobs for stay-home moms. And some of them don't require a lot of additional training, so it can be relatively easy for you to get started. Check out some of your choices:

You’ve got to match your tasks to two things: your energy levels and your surroundings. Save work that you need to concentrate on for blocks of times when you’re alone and alert. For example, while writing this post at 11 PM, my eyes started closing. I decided to finish it first thing in the morning when I would be feeling energetic and the house would be quiet. Schedule social media posts when you only have a few minutes at a time or are feeling tired. When you’re feeling less energetic, that might be a good time to to take the courses you may have bought that have piled up.

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).
This is a great list! I’m hoping it will be very helpful to me… I haven’t been able to work all my life due to health problems. I have loved the idea of working and earning my own money, just never had the chance. So working from home could change my life! Do you have any advice on a really easy, simple way to get started and earning soon? I’m not looking to earn a lot or any thing, and it doesn’t need to be fun or interesting, I just want something easy to start with. I don’t particularly have many skills, but I can type and I have the free time. Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks 🙂
Well, if that’s the case, you’re in luck because there are hundreds of companies from which to choose. I’m sure you’ve heard of the many companies marketing their products through social media. Teeth whitener, body wraps, lipstick, skin regimens, leggings, fitness shakes, candles, makeup, jewelry, more fitness shakes, etc. Hey — some people have great sales talent. If there’s a product out there you absolutely love, you might do well!

As I am so fond of doing, I’ll leave you with a thought on how the dominant paradigms of our culture conspire to make us into endless consumers. In many ways, daycare is an example of how much we pay to work in this country. I sincerely wish we had free childcare programs for all families in the US, but, we do not. And so, families are left to grapple with an essentially no-win situation: lose an income by staying home or lose a lot of an income by paying for daycare.
Real Ways to Earn Money is a large resource of home-based jobs. There is a huge directory of work from home opportunities, tons of ways to earn extra cash, and enough job leads to keep you busy applying for weeks!

Whether you want to be a freelance writer, track down non-phone jobs, or just earn a little extra each month, you can find it all (and more!) on Real Ways to Earn!

After reading this blog I decided to try one of the places – Clickworker – thought it was right up my alley. I assume these are legit online businesses, but unfortunately, as soon as I signed up with all my information – my Facebook account was hacked! I’m concerned as to what else might happen, but hoping that was it and my account at Clickworker was closed fast enough. Just be careful….


I’m going to be the primary caregiver for our child (arriving in 10 weeks, give or take!) but also work part-time mostly from home for my business. I’m happy to have you as a model, a few months ahead of me! I do plan to travel for speaking engagements for some of my income when the baby is > 12 weeks old, which will necessitate occasional babysitters, and it remains to be seen whether I’ll view that as a welcome or unwelcome break from our child.
3. Office Space: Your preschooler’s art table will not make a suitable desk for your laptop, and the bean bag chair in the playroom probably isn’t the best place to set up shop. Make sure your home has some sort of space to designate as your “office.” If not, get creative and figure out a way to turn an already-in-use room (such as the laundry room or the guest bedroom) into your work-from-home space.
Congratulations on your new and exciting life! Achieving your dream of moving to your beautiful homestead, raising your gorgeous daughter, and embarking on an exciting new chapter in your career is truly inspiring!

Enjoy it all and be proud of all you guys have accomplished – it is incredible!
Stacy: Ruthie, our youngest, likes to sit up at the table and listen and draw/color. Sometimes I put her in her crib to play with her toys. Before y’all send me angry comments, know that she likes being in there, I promise it’s not a punishment. And sometimes, hold on to your britches, I’ll even let her sit at the table with the iPad and watch Sesame Street. She learns the alphabet and her numbers watching this show so I stand by it. I watched Sesame Street as a kid and I turned out okay!
Like many in the online writing field have noted, things have changed quite a bit over the past couple years (the easy days of eHow articles that made thousands are long gone!) Sometimes we're tempted to give up, as if so much has changed that there is no way to make enough money working part-time to meet your needs. I can hardly believe that only 18 months ago I made over $5,000 during a month that I worked only a few hours a week. Those were the days!
Olivia Howell, 33, works in social media management and cares for her two sons, ages two and five, in New York. She works throughout the day, every day, on her phone until around 1:00 A.M. and tries to wake up before her kids. ”I feel so blessed I get to be flexible for my boys,” she says. “But I never have time for myself ever, and I never sleep, like, really.”
To really find the job that is right for you, you need to know what you are looking for. Already you know you want a working stay-at-home job, but that job must also fit your abilities, passions, time and financial needs. So let’s set up some guidelines. I have a free printable for you to fill out with your own guidelines that you can get by subscribing.
Great Post! I like the tip on creating a direct sales business. I stated my online fitness business in April 2016 and have averaged $500 a month. The pace has been increasing and mine and my husbands goal is to quit our jobs in Aug. of 2017 to take this business full time. It is possible to make money online you just have to believe in yourself! You can do it!

Premier Designs is a high fashion jewelry company, started in 1985. It’s a direct sales company, like many others mentioned, but it has one of the best compensation packets on the “market”. You get out of Premier what you put into it! You make 50% of everything you sell and, once you join, you are surrounded by a wonderful group of ladies that want to make sure that you succeed!

Writer or blogger—There are many working-at-home moms who supplement their incomes by writing or blogging. You need to be a skilled writer and must be willing to put in some time in order to secure clients and make a name for yourself. A few options that you could consider include writing books, e-books, technical documents, or blogs. Writers can earn anywhere from $14.67 to $57.10 or more an hour. However, bloggers' incomes are hard to predict since what you get out of it really depends on what you put into it. And there are many ways for bloggers to earn money, including by putting ads on their sites, selling products and services, writing sponsored posts, writing product reviews, and doing giveaways for companies.
I am a better mother and a better wife because of my work and my community. I am finding myself, and I am finding others like me. In fact, as much as I’ve experienced a shift in perspective about working and motherhood, I am raising children who see that creating a professional life and raising children are not mutually exclusive. Both my daughters and my son are seeing that it’s possible to flourish on all fronts, and frankly, as a working mom, that seems like the best kind of feminist revolution.
When our daughter was born, the cost of childcare was more than my DH’s income. So he became the SAHP while I continued working. We also have health insurance through my job, so it was basically a no-brainer. Four years later, we are looking at homeschooling her and will continue this path for as long as it makes sense. The cost of afterschool care and summer care and the like would also equal about his take home pay should he return to work in the next year or so.
I sooner aliases the pointlessness of buyung into that. Yes, I’m a feminist -but one whose every instinct told her that the right choice (for her) was to stay home and not miss a minute of her baby’s life. Other mothers would be lost in loneliness and craving for a different lifestyle. They might even sink into depression. They might crave daily connection with lots of different people.
As a blogger, I earn money a number of ways — some of it comes from affiliate sales and ad revenue, which I can attribute to the blog itself. A substantial portion of my earnings come from clients who approach me for work because they read my blog. So, while the act of blogging isn’t the main source of income, blogging does present a number of money-making opportunities!

I’m a SAHM to two littles and I’m a consultant for Rodan+Fields. The doctors who created Proactiv now have an anti-aging pharmaceutical line. They were a #1 selling clinical line for Nordstrom’s before entering direct sales in 2008. This is the FiRST company with an established brand to ever enter direct sales. We get a huge amount of press coverage in major magazines and we were just named the fourth largest premium skin care brand in the U.S. after Clinque, Estée Lauder and Lancôme. This company is changing the face of direct sales as we know it. I would love to share more. teambarrett.myrandf.biz


Be honest. When you think of work-from-home jobs, what comes to mind? Data entry? Customer service? While it’s true that some jobs just scream “work from home,” you might be amazed by the number of industries that offer flex-friendly positions. Although there are work-from-home jobs in practically every industry, the top fields for flexible jobs are medical and health, HR and recruiting, computer and IT, and education and training, as well as accounting and finance, government, and travel and hospitality.
