3 Ways To Make Money From Home

As a person that works from home, I try my best to earn as much as possible so that my children can have all the best experiences in life. Sometimes it's hard though to find the work and I have to find ways to make money whilst at home. So I thought I'd list my 3 top ways to make money from home...

Start A Blog
Now, many people will start a blog online and think it's easy. Okay, you're reading this and it might all look fairly easy to do. You just open a blog and start writing, right? Wrong. Writing a blog takes time, finding work through your blog is even harder. 

There is a lot of background work involved with running a blog. I had to learn all about HTML, coding and SEO as well as having time in between looking after the children to write up posts. You have to learn about social media and networking to get your posts out to the best people.

You have to be approachable so that people will email and want to work with you. And try not to be greedy. Don't start a blog on a Monday and then start emailing companies asking for 'free products'. They are NOT free. Writing a reviews takes time. It's very hard work and a lot of investment in cameras and online editing apps to make the review look amazing. 

So yes, by all means start a blog. But make sure you have the time to really get going with it and get your readers, make your own choices and just be yourself. 

Sell Your Unwanted Items
This is one thing I regularly do. I go all around the house and check for things that haven't been used in the past few weeks. Clothing, toys, electricals, furniture, anything. I put them all online, on eBay, Gumtree, local selling sites and even Shpock. 

I use Pass My Parcel to ship anything I sell and it;s a surprisingly cheap alternative to the Post Office. What's more, they offer a click and collect service too so I don't even need to leave the house whilst selling stuff. It's amazing how much money can be made from stuff you no longer need. This month alone has seen me pocket over £200 just in 3 sales. 

Use A Survey Site
Whenever I tell people that I do this, they always give me that look. Like, what a waste of time, you'll never make anything doing that. But I have and I do. I can usually make around £50 a month just by answering a few surveys on Swagbucks or having videos playing in the background whilst I'm working. It's so easy to do. Sometimes, they have fab deals too and you can shop and earn cashback through them too for even better deals. 

So, if you're looking for ways to make a bit of extra money whilst you're at home, check these out and give them a try. You never know, you might have something hidden at home that's worth a small fortune!


  1. I sell unwanted items, I have signed up to swagbucks a few months ago but haven't been on there since, I'll have to have another look, I think, I'd love to set up a blog but not to gain from it but just to keep my children's memories, I've been thinking about setting up email addresses for them and sending emails and photos of our memories xxxx

  2. I've just signed up to Roamler so hoping this might be a good moneymaker for me! Am also interested in blogging but am too scared to start anything!

  3. Great tips, cashback sites are great way too

  4. I used to do a lot of surveys but I found it took a long time to build up money.

  5. I've been wanting to start a blog for ages, but haven't got round to it yet.
