Not all tasks are created equal. I love Suzi’s post on how to be more productive about this. Every time you’re faced with a task, ask yourself–is it urgent? Is it time sensitive? How much time will this take me? You then use this information to structure your work hours. Figure out what’s urgent, what’s important (these are not the same things!) and prioritize accordingly.
One thing I wanted to point out—not to challenge your choice, but just to share my frustration with hearing it so often. The idea that we lose a lot of an income by paying for daycare. Several moms I know who’ve chosen to stay home cite the fact that daycare ate up most of their salary as a key reason for their decision, even making it a “no brainer.” But it is a fallacy to do the math this way, as though the cost of daycare comes solely from the mother’s salary. The cost of childcare comes out of both parents’ combined income. There is also a likely significant long-term loss of lifetime earnings to consider, as the stats show that parents who have been out of the workforce have a hard time getting back in, let alone at the same rate of salary increase they were at before . I am considering kids in a few years, and something I’m weighing heavily is the potential long-term impact on our income. Freelancing, while scary because it’s not a dependable paycheck, is an appealing flexible option…
In the eyes of the law, an independent contractor differs from an employee in that an independent contractor has the freedom to act autonomously to get a job done as they see fit — as long as you meet the contract requirements. As an independent contractor you’re not entitled to benefits like paid time off or health insurance. You will also be responsible for paying taxes on your earnings.

On the employee side, when surveyed, two-thirds of Americans say that they would like to work from home. And that desire has turned into action; the number of regular employees who work from home grew by 103 percent from 2005 to 2016. There are now 3.7 million American employees working from home.1 That same focus on working from home is also seen with those who are self-employed. In 2013, Forbes reported that over half of the small businesses in the country were home-based.2
Stay at home, homeschooling mom of 4. My husband does a great job of supporting our family but I’ve become an independent distributor for 2 or 3 companies that we just love their products! My favorite for a home business would probably be Lilla Rose since the products are something almost any woman/girl can use and the company support is so great. – Tyra Whitlow at Lilla Rose
The great thing is there is full training & support, it’s not MLM and there is no cold calling or stocking products. It’s in the personal Development industry and developing my personal growth is not just beneficial to me, it’s helping my husband and children have a different and very positive perspective on life – how wonderful to incorporate this into your family teachings!

It's important to line up your day carefully, with set "office" hours. How many hours do you hope to work that day? When will you return calls? What can you accomplish while your son or daughter is coloring in the next room? You'll get more done if you work smarter, not harder, says Christine Durst, a mom of two in Woodstock, Connecticut, and cofounder of ratracerebellion.com, a site that helps people find work-at-home jobs. That said, one of the best benefits of working at home is flexibility, especially if you are your own boss. If your son or daughter is fussing during your office hours and it's a beautiful day, it's okay to push assignments aside and go to the park. You can catch up on work later when your cutie has settled down.

I keep a running To-Do List throughout the week. I add to it continually and let the list get really long. I actually keep two: one personal and one work-related. But each day I select 3-5 action items which are the things that I truly need to get done. If I can get through more than that, great. But most days there is really only time for the top 3 pressing items. You’ll be surprised how efficient you can be when you narrow your focus each day. Read more about my To-Do list strategy here.
In the moments leading up to this comment, I had felt harried, stressed, and worried that I wouldn’t be perceived as thoughtful or professional because my baby had cried out. But instead, I found support. The other women on my call were, in fact, working from home as well. They understood and knew that I could be both a mom and professional. I could change a diaper and discuss grading norms for the curriculum we were developing. To date, one of my favorite work-related text message exchanges happened with a friend while we were both breast-feeding. We were wildly productive in that “meeting.”

2. Email processing—Like envelope stuffing, you are not processing emails at all. You pay a starter fee in order to get information about how to set up a web page. You can pay an additional fee to have the company set up a web page for you. Then you are required to start running (and paying for) the same online ads that attracted you. Every time someone clicks on one and signs up, you are supposed to receive a commission.
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?

Typing is obviously a key skill, but accuracy and good grammar are important as well. Transcriptionists are paid by the lines or words typed, the audio minute transcribed or, less frequently, by the hour. Work-at-home transcriptionists are usually independent contractors. As with writing, in many transcription positions, the work can be done during non-business hours or on a flexible schedule. If you are just starting out, you might try data entry from home first.
“We understand that integrating writing into your life is about more than sitting down to write. … Succeeding as a writer in today’s digital world takes so much more: Figuring out how to work with clients, navigating the changing landscape of traditional publishing, learning the ins and outs of social media, growing a following for your blog and finding a community that will support you along the way.” — Alexis Grant 

There are so many decisions to be made when a new little family member enters your world. Should you buy a bigger house? Or turn the home office into a nursery? Should you start a college fund for the child, like, yesterday? Should kids eat gluten? Clearly, being a parent is extremely overwhelming. Then there is this other decision many working moms face: do you continue to work when you have kids? Some moms believe that the answer is easy—whether they decide to work, or not. But life is really never the same again once you have a child, and while there is no right or wrong choice when it comes to continuing your career or being a stay at home mom, both will come with surprises. When you’ve been used to working five (or seven) days a week for years on end, suddenly not doing that spurs a lot of other unexpected changes. Here are things to consider before becoming a stay at home mom.
This is a very impressive and informative list. I have always looked up to women bloggers who manages to enjoy their time being a mother at home while fulfilling a passion and creating a successful career even at home. This is why I have decided to get more details via CompareBroadband when it comes to internet services to be able to fulfill my dreams of becoming a WAHM as well. I love to express myself and blog at the same time. Hopefully I can contribute something significant to the online world while generating income as well.
I work from home doing customer service. I contract with a company named LiveOps and they offer opportunities to certify with a variety of clients. I currently take calls for Pizza Hut and it is pretty easy and enjoyable, once I got the hang of using the computer software. Most days, I average around $12 per hour, and I don’t have to commute anywhere or pay for childcare. I just schedule work hours when my husband is home to watch our 3 kids.

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!


You are singing my song’s I quit my teaching job when tiny Eivy came along because a) I couldn’t rip myself away from her and b) I’m pretty sure childcare costs more than I was making. Having that freedom allowed me to develop my own photography career which fit perfectly (and still does now that she’s seven) around caring for her. Plus I’m able to take care of all the house and rental property issues which is a huge help to our family.
Stacy: We always do chores before school – sometime between 8 and 9:30. Our chores usually take me about an hour and a half every day – some days are longer, some days are less. Whatever we can’t get done before we start school, we will do a different part of the day. Occasionally, during their independent school work, I will finish up chores. The kids are helping a lot more now though! The kids know how to sweep the floor, keep the table clean, empty the trash, etc. This takes some off my plate!
The company believes in saving the environment and the products are amazing. Anyone would want to join as members receive almost 35% discount, plus loyalty shopping dollars of 15% of your purchase and the list is endless. I love it. Plenty of quality time to spend with family and children! If you would like to join, leave your email here and I’ll reply to your email.
So I looked into work at home options (I wrote a whole post about it here). Blogging kept coming up as the perfect side hustle for a stay at home mom. That was where I found Suzi and Blog by Number! I was instantly hooked. I’d loved writing in high school, and I’d read so many mom blogs over the years – and Suzi was telling me I could be just like them!
If the emotional side of things wasn’t compelling enough, the finances absolutely sealed the deal for us. As people who like to do our research extensively (some might say obsessively… ), while I was pregnant I researched every single daycare I could find in our area. I interrogated parents about nanny shares, home daycares, large daycares, small daycares… you name it, I read about it. And what I deduced is that daycare in the Boston area is equal parts expensive and competitive. A number of centers I called (while I was all of 3 months pregnant) were already filled up for the month I’d need Babywoods to start.
I understand people making these comments aren’t trying to be insulting. Truly, I do. They probably see that I’m a mom who saves money on daycare, can attend dance class in the middle of the day with my kid (laptop in tow), and has freeing flexibility.

Natural product maker—Are you among the growing number of moms who make their own personal and skincare products for their families? The natural product movement has been growing, and many people seek out handcrafted natural products, which include anything from bath bombs to baby body wash. If you have the ability to make any of those kinds of items, then this could be a viable business avenue.

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.

Are you currently employed in an office setting but would like to find a job working from home instead? Did you consider that you might be able to keep your current job and work from home? It is possible to make that happen. You will need to start out by assessing your job and identifying whether it is realistic for you to work from home. If it is, then you will need to convince your boss to get on board.
I think most people recognize that when it comes to freelancing and finances, uncertainty is the name of the game. The good news is, you have great motivation (your family!) to make that money every month. Now that your family is depending on your skills to bring home income, you need financial buffers like never before. For me, that means having a good mix of hourly pricing and value-based pricing for my work. It also means setting up a budget with a Variable Income Fund (VIF). Unlike a savings account, your VIF is meant to be spent. Think of it like a pot of money that can act as a paycheck in months when income is down. Let’s say you have a good month and make more than expected. After setting aside 25-30% for taxes (yes, you need to do that) and paying any other monthly financial obligations, you can start planning for the months ahead. Squirrel away some money for a future month’s “paycheck” in your Variable Income Fund. Having money budgeted for the future has been a game changer for me and it’s actually pretty easy if you start using financial software, like YNAB or Mint. Developing the habit early will make the transition to freelancing much easier.
I do get frustrates when people tell me “you’re so lucky to stay at home!” Not because I’m not privileged (I realize I am!) but it supports this 1950s paradigm where I am lucky to be supported by my husband. Um, no. We both work hard. I think devaluing parenting by acting like its a “luxury” instead of an actual contribution to society is pretty anti-feminist. And ultimately makes things way harder for working parents when we act like parenting obligations aren’t important, and therefore don’t fund maternity leave/sick leave/affordable childcare. I know there are lots of families who can’t afford to live on one salary, and sometimes have to make questionable childcare decisions, going with unlicensed, substandard care and I don’t think our standard for “lucky” should be not having to do that! Childcare should be affordable for everyone! And that starts with seeing caregiving as important work, no matter who is doing it! Okay, hopping off my soapbox.
Thank you a lot for this amazing article. I am from Armenia but now I live in Russia. I have refused from my job to come to Russia and now I would like to gain a little money at home and bring up my son. Is it possible to earn money from Russia? What easy methods of gaining will you suggest me in order I could spend less efforts and time, staying more with my son?
I admire you for putting yourself, Blake and your marriage first and then work. It’s not easy, especially in today’s world. You are an amazing woman to be able to balance all of it and run such a successful blog, body program and teaching of others through videos or in person. I’m sure it is not easy and I know you have to be organized to do it all. Please know you are an inspiration to many!! May God continue to bless you, your family and your business!!

Indeed I am. And it’s part of the rationale behind my new trajectory. It’s my belief that, as a feminist (who is fortunately married to an enlightened feminist), I’m enfranchised to structure my life as I desire. I’m not forced to stay home; nor am I forced to go to a job. This third-wave feminist ideology of defining what feminism means to each individual woman, and how we express that through our life choices, resonates deeply with me.


Toluna is a survey and product testing site where you can earn points for participation. Most surveys and questionnaires take 15 – 20 minutes and members earn anywhere from 15 – 20,000 points depending on the length. Points can be redeemed for sweepstakes tickets for gadgets or getaways, vouchers for stores like Amazon, even cash. Payments are made via PayPal and check.
Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. Their program is approved by the American Health Information Management Association and the American Academy of Professional Coders. They work with companies such as CIOX Health, Lexicode, OS2-HCS, TrustHCS, Inovalon, Mckesson that hire their grads to work from home right out of the program.
Stay-at-home mom jobs are growing in popularity. In fact, the number of people who are working from home (an arrangement that is also called telecommuting) has been growing as more workers and employers realize the benefits. Overall, telecommuting eases traffic congestion and reduces our carbon footprint. Studies have also found that teleworkers can be up to 35 to 40 percent more productive than their office counterparts. Companies that allowed employees to work from home found a 63-percent reduction in scheduled absences, and almost all of the companies found that their employee retention rates dramatically improved.1
AirTreks is a travel agency that offers international and multi-stop tickets for travel. AirTreks provides training, but requires prospective employees to have traveled to five or more countries. AirTreks Travel Agents use Amadeus GDS. Job Search Tip: Work-from-home Travel Agent positions are often listed as “Travel Planner”. Starting pay is $2,000+commission.
The truth is that there are legitimate work-from-home employers seeking applicants, but they are often drowned out by the loud and proud direct sales consultants offering a similar pitch. I have nothing against direct sales; in fact, I dabbled in them a few years ago. I respect the hustle! But it’s important to remember that direct sales isn’t for everyone, just like teaching isn’t for everyone, being a doctor isn’t for everyone, and being a mom isn’t for everyone.
The FlexJobs database lists thousands of work-at-home jobs that offer stay-at-home moms the ability to work comfortably from a home office. And according to the FlexJobs survey of working parents in 2017, the ability to work flexibly is one of the top contributors to a healthy work-life balance. Below we’ve got 10 great work-at-home jobs for stay-at-home moms, along with their median annual salary from PayScale.

Wow, this is absolutely amazing to hear. You and Mr. Frugalwoods are living out the plan that Mr. Picky Pincher and myself outlined a year ago, when we started our frugal journey. I’m so happy to see it’s achievable. 🙂 I’m not a mom yet, but I do struggle over whether staying at home is right for us or not. I’m sure the answer will come when Baby Picky Pincher is here. 🙂 Bravo for doing what’s right for you!

I’m a homeschooling mom with one still in the homeschool nest (14) and one commuting as a sophomore in college. I have been a freelance proofreader for university presses since 1994; I teach World and Comparative Lit at a homeschool co-op; and began a Plexus business for weight loss in January of this year for only $34.95 (I’ve lost 16.5 pounds and feel better than I have in years!).  Jenni Rom at Plexus
This is a great list. When people are searching from jobs that will allow them to work from home, they often have not clue what to search for on jobs sites other than “work at home.” This is an excellent list of search terms, as well as to give ideas for areas in which to seek further training if needed so that working from home can be a possibility.
Fabulous. 🙂 I’m juggling lots of things like every mom is and needed that little bit of encouragement. I just went through the post again to try to tell you which was my favorite point, but I can’t figure out a favorite. I can tell you, however, on what I feel most convicted- being present. So many things are begging for my time and attention, but I need to keep in mind that the most important are my husband and my kids. So thanks for speakin’ some truth and know God is working through it! 🙂
Deanne Akerson: As a maternity and breastfeeding apparel brand, our customers are moms. Our team of work-from-home-moms are uniquely positioned to deliver an incredible customer experience simply because they’re moms themselves, and they understand the needs of our customers perfectly! They know what it’s like to be pregnant, breastfeeding, sleep-deprived, because they have been there so recently themselves. This is a benefit to the company in so many ways; from knowing what kind of content creation to focus on, what new apparel products to make next, and how to interact on social media. It simply makes sense to employ work-from home moms who are also experiencing the same crazy, beautiful life stage as our customers.
And that’s it! With three kids it’s important to divide and conquer and be flexible with our schedules. My Mondays and Tuesdays are usually reserved for my first daughter’s speech therapy, my Wednesdays and Thursdays are reserved for second daughter’s extracurricular activities and Fridays are usually free and I try not to schedule anything on this day except my first daughter’s ABA therapy.
In addition to blogging, I write ebooks which is by far where most of my online income comes from. I also pick up a friend’s sons from school each day and they hang out with us until she gets off of work. It’s a blessing to both our families. My ebook, Hope – Thriving While Unemployed, has quite a few self employment ideas. – Angi Schneider at Schneider Peeps

Great post Carly! I am in the same boat without as you with going back to work after having a baby. My husband and I decided it’s best that I stay home. I am blogging as well and hope to contribute to my family financially as well. ITs so nice to hear of someone’s success blogging so close to home (I’m from Saskatchewan) it gives me the fire to keep keep going!
Wow; only $700 – that really puts things into perspective! It feels much more approachable/attainable when you look at it that way! I actually have my fingers in a number of pies, as well – besides Amazon publishing and direct sales, I also bring in a little here and there through blogging (‘though that’s far from dependable), and I sell some of my photos through stock sites. (That REALLY doesn’t bring in a lot, but if the pictures are just sitting on my hard drive anyway, I might as well put them somewhere they can bring in a few cents.) 

Hi Patrick, thanks for the comment. You can start by looking in to some opportunities listed on this post. Then, you may want to set up a professional website for yourself to market your services. If you have experience in a particular field, you can start yourself to potential clients. If you don’t have any experience, you may want to do a few jobs for free to build up enough experience to improve your chances of getting hired. Good luck!

You also need to make sure that you are working for employers who are OK with you fitting your work in around the needs of your children. The best jobs for stay-at-home moms offer flexibility so that you are able to work before your kids wake up (or after they go to bed), from your phone at the playground, or during naps, free play, and TV time. And you will need to be self-motivated and willing to do whatever is necessary in order to ensure that your work is getting finished.
Veronica V., Have you found anything yet? You said you are great with customer service and sales. Have you ever thought about direct sales? I am a consultant for Rodan+Fields, an anti-aging company founded by the very same dermatologists that created ProActiv. We are not a party company (though if you like hosting parties you sure can). We don’t have any quotas. I would love to talk to you if interested! Thanks!
Great post! I LOVE my job as a Norwex consultant and that it allows me to be a stay at home mom with my 3 kids. So many awesome benefits like flexibility, free sign up and 35% commission make it the best job for me and my family! My favorite thing about being a Norwex consultant is helping others rid their home of chemicals and make it a safer place for their families.
I AM A QUALIFIED PRIMARY TEACHER AND NEEDED SOMETHING TO TAKE MY HOURS OF WORK DOWN AS I FIND TERM TIME HOURS AND DEMANDS QUITE CHALLENGING. I LOOKED AT SEVERAL DIRECT SELLING OPPORTUNITIES AND FOUND ONE THAT IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I EARN AS MUCH AS I CHOOSE TO PUT IN THE WORK FOR, AND THERE IS A FANTASTIC SUPPORT NETWORK. IT WAS SOMETHING I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER DO AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.
1. Envelope stuffing—You are asked to send in money to receive a starter kit and told that you will be paid for every envelope that you stuff and send. What you end up receiving is a package telling you how to advertise the scam. The goal is that you advertise the same envelope-stuffing scheme to others and allegedly get a kickback for every person who responds to your ads and signs up.

We have a great group of agents and they always help one another out on our Facebook page. If you have questions I am happy to answer them.
