Making Money as a SAHM

When I left my job to become a SAHM one of my biggest concerns was finances. Not that we couldn't afford for me to stay home, we could with some adjustments to our spending and our budget. But I wanted to still feel like I was contributing financially. In the short month that I've been home, I've found some creative ways to make money while raising my daughter.

I'm writing for the website Ehow.com. You can write about anything on Ehow as long as it's in the "How To" format. Articles can be relatively short or as long as you need to explain your "how to." Writers who've been at it awhile make hundreds, even $1500 a month just by writing articles. You get paid when people click on the ads that are posted alongside articles you've written. I've been writing since November 22 and have about 50 articles so far. The money starting coming in almost immediately. Okay, so it was only 8 cents at first, then .13 and so on. Now I'm making close to .75 a day. I'm quickly learning that the more articles I write, the more I promote them and the more work I put in now, the more money will keep coming in. Ehow is a great way to make residual income. The great thing is, once an article is written it has the potential to continually make money without me doing anymore work! Check out all my ehow articles, I'd love to know what you think!.

I've also started selling used clothing on Ebay. Now I have to admit there's definitely a learning curve there. There are lots of ins and outs to learn on Ebay in order to be successful. With each sale I'm learning more and more.

Right now I'm focusing on these two "ventures" if you will. I don't want to spread myself too thin and I need to remember that I stopped working for a reason: to raise my daughter. And let's be honest, right now, I only get nap time to "work." That can be as little as 30 minutes at a clip and we all know that's not much. If you've found ways to make residual income by working online let me know. I'm always interested in hearing what other SAHM do.

This sounds like such a great idea!! I actually went through and read some of your articles, and not to downplay what you've done with your writing, but it seems like such a simple way to make a little extra cash!! Rory was actually over here last night and I was showing her ehow, and now we're both thinking about starting to write articles!! Thanks for sharing your money making tips!! :D

It really is great. January was my second month on Ehow and I tripled my December earnings. You earn money when people click on the ads on your page. I actually found ehow through a viewer tip when I was still working. A SAHM mom emailed to say she was making $1500 a month writing for ehow! That's crazy. The best part is after you finish writing your articles they continue to make money indefinitely. Let me know if you're serious about it there's a ebook by ehow's top earner that you might be interested in. It gives a ton of great information so you maximize the amount of money you make on each article.
