5 Ways To Make Money At Home

Because the cost of childcare would cost as much as I am capable of bringing in, my husband and I decided it would be better if I stayed home.I love my children and I am glad to be here with them even though being a dual income home would be nice. I would need to have a salary of $52,000 a year to warrant going back to work. So until I can find the perfect job or my kids are in school, I will be home. While at home, I try to earn as much money as I can. Here are my secrets to earning a little bit of side income.

five ways to make money


1. Swagbucks

When I first heard of Swagbucks, I thought it was a scam. Now that I have been swagging for several months, I know that it is the real deal. I get cash back on most online purchases and I do surveys.

I typically spend an hour a day working on surveys. Sometimes there are not enough surveys for me to complete and sometimes there are a ton. I average about $25 a month from shopping rebates and surveys.

2. Ibotta


I kept seeing ads for this everywhere. Out of curiosity I decided to join. I am so glad I did. I use this app on my phone to get cash back for things I already purchase. Scan the products you buy and upload a picture of your receipt.

In one month, I have already earned $28 from purchasing grocery items like bread, chips, and onion.

3. Influenster


I am really new to the blogging scene. I never knew I could use my social media influence to get free products. Just review your favorite products and link your social media and you will qualify for a VoxBox in no time.

I have a pretty small following and I have received 3 boxes in my first month. They have sent me hair products, medicine, and supplements. The items you receive for review are based on the products you review and your demographics.

One of the boxes they sent me was a sample of ZzzQuil. While I wont be needing to take a sleep aid anytime soon with a newborn, I will be stashing it away for a weekend that the kids are with the grandparents. I've used ZzzQuil in the past, so I know it is a really great sleep aid.

While not exactly money, free stuff means I can spend less. If you want free stuff, sign up here.


4. Adsense


I have been blogging since 2013 and I am just now seeing some revenue from Adsense.

In the past two months, I have averaged about $10 a month. I make this by promoting my blog on all of my social media sites.

5. Shop Style Collective


Since I already make recommendation on products to buy, I decided to go ahead and join Shop Style Collective. I make a small percentage based on purchases made through my links. I also get a little bit for every time someone clicks on one of my product links.

I only make a couple of dollars a month this way. I'm not a fashion blogger so this is to be expected.
