  I absolutely love being a stay at home mom and I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but living on one income can sometimes be challenging. Therefore, I’m always looking for new ways to earn extra income from home and over the years I’ve learned a little about what works and what doesn’t. So here are my top 5 easy ways that anyone can make money from home.



  Swagbucks is a website where you earn by doing simple tasks such as searching the internet, watching videos, answering surveys, playing games, etc. Once you earn enough bucks you can turn them in for prizes or gift cards. I normally turn mine in for PayPal or Amazon gift cards.


450 Swagbucks = $5 Amazon Gift Card
2500 Swagbucks = $25 PayPal Gift Card


Check out these posts to see how you can earn $40+ per month with Swagbucks:

10 Easy Ways to Earn Swagbucks

  Bing is a search engine that is just as good as Google (I promise!) where you can earn points for searches. You can later redeem those points for gift cards. You earn 1 pt for every 2 searches up to 25 per day on the computer and up to 10 per day on your mobile phone. I earn $10 per month in gift cards just for searching the Internet and it only takes 5 minutes or less per day!

Grocery Rebate Apps

  If you have a smart phone and you’re not taking advantage of all the awesome rebate apps available then you’re missing out on free money! I easily earn $20+ per month just by submitting my weekly grocery receipts on my favorite apps. The best three apps (in my experience) are Ibotta, Checkout51, and Wal-Mart Savings Catcher.



Sell on Craigslist & Ebay

  Making money by selling on Craigslist and Ebay is possible, but it takes hard work and commitment. You will probably want to start out by finding things you already have around the house to sell. Then, once you get more comfortable with how much things sell for you can start finding quality like new items at thrift store, estate sales, garages sales, consignment sales, etc. To learn more about how to find quality kids clothes at rock bottom prices go here.



  When I first got married, I kept my friends baby and made around $30 per day. It was fun and a great source of income for us! If you like kids then this might be something that would work well for you. The best way to get the word out is by telling your friends that you are available. You could also post your availability on your social media accounts or sign up for websites such as Sittercity.com


  These ideas are only scratching the surface on ways to make money from home. If you have specialized skills then you could become a virtual assistant, freelance writer, website developer, medical coder, etc. The sky and your imagination are the limit when it comes to making money from home, but in order to make it work you will need hard work and determination!

  1. I'm not a huge fan of Swagbucks. I tried it once and it just wasn't worth my time. A friend was bragging on social media how much she made in a year in just a few minutes a day. I did the math... it was $2 an hour. Yes, you can definitely make money doing these things, but I would encourage moms to look at the hourly rates, because it doesn't always look so good anymore!
    1. I agree that you won't get rich making Swagbucks, but if it's the only thing that someone can do then it's still worth something, right? Sometimes peoples options are limited and even a little helps! I do Swagbucks when I can and I think it's a great way to earn a little extra income without much time. I run videos on my phone while it's charging so basically I'm not doing any work and still getting paid. I don't however, spend time filling out surveys because I feel it's a waste of my time. Thanks for your thoughts!
  2. I mostly sell items we no longer need on ebay. It does take time but pays off in the end! I also enter codes from our cereal boxes to earn rewards. It isn't much but it's super easy to do! I should have enough points to purchase a Starbucks ecard to put in the hubbies stocking this year;0)
  3. I don't have the patience for swag bucks. That and I did NOT know, you would have spam emails about the wazoo. :-(. I'd definitely add the caveat to set up a separate email account just for spam. I keep on looking for a monthly update on the kids. I miss them.
    1. It is a good place but takes time to get your shop noticed. You are charged fees for promoting your items and then again to post it for sale and a third time when it sells. If you use pay pal they charge you a fer aksi. The trick is pricing fair but covering the hidden fees to make any money
  4. I am visiting from Frugal Friday Link Up Party. I think I am going to check more into swagbucks. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Hi Missy. Once again you blew the competition out of the water with this post! good job. This was voted the feature for this weeks Simple Saturdays Blog Hop. Please come back and link up again and don't forget to grab the featured button
  6. These are great tips, especially babysitting. One thing I do is attempt to make as much as I possibly can from scratch. While this doesn't actually bring in money, it does help stretch the money that is coming in. Thanks for the post, Missy.
  7. Has anyone here tried 90 for Life Youngevity? I am already making $300 a month and only been doing it for 3 months. This is a great opportunity to look at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Xa5CkWqy1Y Please persevere through the first story part of the link, it's not about farming. If anyone is interested, contact me through my website.
  8. Thank you so much for this. I've been seeing commercials at least for the Walmart savings catcher and I seem to shop there already so duh what am I waiting for? Never heard of Swagbucks. Will have to check them out. Visiting from Thriving Thursday!
  9. I like to use eBates, which is similar to Swagbucks. This last month, I became a mystery shopper and it has been fantastic! I've made more than $125 in cash, food, merchandise and gas. It does take time, but the more comfortable I get with it, the less time it takes. My husband and I got paid $25 to go on a date, plus our meals were paid for. Awesome!
  10. Some other great grocery receipt apps are receipt pal and receipt hog. You get points for each grocery receipt no matter what's on them and you can redeem your points for paypal or amazon.
  11. Great ideas! I haven't heard of the grocery store apps before and I will have to check them out. I am a firm believer that any little bit of money helps and the easier the better!
  12. You can use Gigwalk or field agent for completing small gigs at the stores in your nearby area. The pay is anything between $2-$25. The only thing is you have to be extremely vigilant of when the gigs are posted. Its pretty famous in my area and people take the gigs as soon as they are posted but still i make $125- $150 a month which is not bad.
