Boosting Income - Stay at home mum

Hi,

Do any of you ladies live in rented accommodation and are a stay at home parent? If so, how do you earn extra money or do you rely on OH to earn for the household?

    I used to switch gas/electricity tariffs for cashback. I haven't done that in a while though but you can make quite a lot doing it every few months.

    I have recently made quite a lot of cash opening new bank accounts, setting up direct debits then switching the bank account to get a switching bonus. I think in the last few months I've made somewhere near £1,000.

    I play free bingo. I wouldn't recommend this if you get any joy out of gambling. I also do matched betting.

    I search on here for unbelievably good deals which reduce the grocery spend.

    No I do not rely on my OH's income. It is though very helpful allowing us to go out more as a family.

    :p Regular savers earn 6% interest (HSBC, First Direct, M&S) :p Loans cost 2.9% per year (Nationwide) = FREE money. :p

    Blogging is a good way to earn a bit of money, it is fun, you can work with a number of brands. To get started it may be a bit of hard work and you may have to do stuff for free until you get a good following on your blog and social channels. Once that's done though you can command a fee for promoting/editorial/reviews and a lot of the blogging can be done when your LO's are sleeping/nursery/nighttime etc

  • I know a couple of people who do virtual PA'ing. So they can work from home.
