SAHM job opportunities


Anyone know any legit job opportunities for a SAHM. I am planning to stay home with our kids, when we have them, because my job would basically only pay for daycare care. But we are used to being a 2 income household so I have to find some way to make some extra money. I've looked into so many things but they all seem like scams or you can only really make 20 bucks a month or something crazy low like that. Not looking to get rich. Just something that could make me 20-30k a year. Anyone?!

I knew I should have replied sooner. I had a feeling your comment would be deleted. Now I don't remember who you were. Anyone else know anything?

I know you aren't in the UK like I am so I guess my experience will be different from yours (maybe there are more SAHM opportunities where you are?). I am in the UK and I have tried to research this for the past year since becoming a SAHM to my 3 kids. Like yourself I can't afford child care fees but would like to work from home and have some income.

Unfortunately all I could find was commission based jobs, and I have already tried a few of them and ended up spending more than what I earned so I'm done with them (although you might be better than me at them as I'm not the best sales person!).

Other options which I would recommend more would be, is there something you can do which you could start up your own business doing? Are you creative, you could make things and sell them? Or do you have a skill you can use to work from home, or access to training for a skill you can work from home doing? I am a qualified massage therapist and I also do reiki so I get some extra money coming in through that, and I also make and sell children's box frames. The success of both ventures varies greatly and it doesn't bring me in a full income but it does help a lot and some months I do really well.

One thing I am looking into at the moment is writing a blog and selling advertising space on it? You can research how to do this on the internet.

Hopefully you can find something you can do from home, there is little over here and there really should be something as there are so many of us SAHMs who'd love an opportunity to work from home.

If you're in the States, there are companies that offer work from home positions but don't really advertise it. Sedgewick offers phone positions if you live in a house and usually have a position open. (They sometimes have a fax based position called eSupport, but those seem to be rare) Apple also sometimes hires for overnight chat support.

There's a forum called Work Place Like Home where people post openings; I recommend joining that.

If you want a more unstructured job, you can join a crowdsourcing platform. I work on one of those and make a couple hundred a month just from research surveys and data processing. I do what I want, when I want, which is so much easier with a toddler. There are people that make a living (1000-3000 a month) on the platform I use, but they are always on it to catch the good jobs.

I work from home along side a company called Forever Living.. I dont know if you have hard of them?
I am a SAHM. I couldnt go out to work because the hours clashed with school runs and the cost of childcare was like 70% of the weekly wage.

I have never heard of that. What sort of work is it? And ya that is why I plan to stay at home. Among other reasons. My pay would cover daycare with a few hundred a month extra. Not worth it to me.
