Any SAHMs have any tips/tricks to making money from home?

I'm going to make the switch to being a SAHM here soon and we are completely fine financially even on just my husband's income but I would like to make some extra spending money...or even just have a little to put in savings because I would still like to contribute to the household somehow.

Any SAHMs have legit ways to make money from home? I'm not interested in any of those online marketing scams..

  • a couple years ago I wanted my kids to attend a year of pretty pricey private pre-k and I worked for 2 online texting companies simultaneously. (cha cha & kgb) As far as I know they're both still hiring. I worked *hard* and long hours but was able to make about $100 a week. it was just what I needed to make up the difference of what we needed to safely afford it. You get money per text. nothing nasty, like "I live in Orlando what time does the library open"" type crap

  • This is not necessarily from making money but saving money. Cook from scratch and coupon. I give myself a budget for groceries. When I check out, the receipt will say that I have saved "X" amount of money. I take that money and put it away for emergencies or a rainy day.

  • I make a bit of extra money taking online surveys, like for holiday shopping and stuff. Maybe a hundred a month or so, I'd guess. Never pay to take online surveys; there are plenty of legitimate sites where you sign up for free. I can send you some links if you PM me.
