Top 10 Stay At Home Jobs for Mom’s
Sell on eBay:
If you have extra clothes, nik-naks, or products in your home that you don’t want or use anymore, then clear out the clutter and make some money by using eBay’s auction style platform.
You can sell your old stuff on eBay much easier and make more money than selling it at a garage sell.
Plus you know the cool thing about places like eBay, there is no actual selling for you to do.
eBay does all the selling!
You just snap some nice photos of whatever you want to get ride of and put up a little description of your item and bomb, eBay does the rest..
Let the millions of daily eBay shoppers buy your old stuff.
It’s incredible how many people buy online.
It’s like the old adage, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”
Many eBay sellers are also excellent bargain shoppers. They go to places like Home Depot or Walmart and buy heavily discounted items after the holidays or whenever they hear of big sales events.
They then turn around and sell those products on eBay for a profit.

Just like eBay, Amazon offers a huge audience to sell your stuff.
Amazon, in my opinion, is better for selling new products. Sell used products on eBay and new products on Amazon.
From my experience, you’ll be able to sell the same product for a greater profit on Amazon.
Where to find new products?
Well, this can be the tricky part, but you can find discounted products from stores that are going out of business, online warehouses or after holiday sale discounts like mentioned above.
You could contact local merchants and offer to sell their products on Amazon as well.

Sell Your Crafts on Etsy:
If you can make your own crafts or clothes, then Etsy.com is a good platform to start out with.
Etsy is growing in popularity and people are really attracted to the idea of buying handmade products.
On Etsy, you can create a online store using their selling platform and create a theme to your store.
You’ll have millions of buyers who are already pre-qualified as buyers of handcraft goods.
If you’d like to take your business to the next level…
You could create your own online jewelry store and sell your own handmade jewelry or brand name jewelry through affiliate marketing programs.
Create a Gift Basket Company:
Gift baskets are very popular these days. They’re used in real estate transactions and with local businesses all the time.
Putting up a local website to market your gift basket business is extremely easy in today’s high tech world and will increase your business visibility and profits.
If you have a knack for putting together cute baskets with little presents and delicious edibles, you can make your baskets from home and sell them for double the profit.
Once you have a few basket designs (with your personally selected products), you can buy in bulk and drop your product cost drastically.
Many small local gift basket entrepreneurs report making between $25,000 to $50,000 per year from this stay-at-home business.
Host a Foreign Exchange Student:
If you have an extra room in your home and you live close to a local college or high school, you could have a great way to make some extra cash.
Just contact the college or high school and see if they have foreign exchange programs.
Most schools do have exchange programs and offer a decent monthly stipend for the host family.
You would have to provide a few meals a day, a nice home environment, and the basic necessities for a student (a private room, a desk, good lighting, and an internet connection), and you’d be good to go.
Professional Closet/Home Organizer:
If you’re like my mom who has an amazing ability to organize and arrange bedrooms and closets, you could have yourself a nice little niche business.
Now this job would take you out of your home at times, but you could start your business and manage it from your computer and cell phone.
You would just need to set up a local website, offer some examples of before and after photos of rooms or closets you’ve organized, and you could pick up local clients.
You’d also want to spread the word of your business through local organizations and market yourself to industries like real estate professionals.
Come to think about it, you could offer pre-made closet and garage organizers on your website and turn your business global by drop-shipping or affiliate marketing those products you recommend and use.
No inventory, just commissions. Not a bad move.
Run Your Own Home-Based Local Day Care:
If you love spending time with children and enjoy teaching and playing with them, you could pick and choose your clients at will.
Many working parents complain that it’s very difficult to find a good day care center.
You could find out how much local care centers charge for their service, then offer a more personalized service and charge the same or a bit more.
Tutor Student or Teach an Instrument at Home:
If you have been a teacher or excel in specific subjects, you could tutor local students. Same thing goes for playing an instrument.
You could set your hourly rate and put the word out about your services to local schools, churches, or other organizations you belong to and start making some extra cash.
You could also put up a website and advertise the subjects or instruments you teach. Thus keeping you as busy as you’d like to be.
Make Lunches and Sell Them at Local Businesses:
Whenever I worked at skilled nursing homes as an Occupational Therapist, I would find that many of the nursing homes would allow friends of co-workers to sell their lunch specialties to the employees.
In my case, the lady would come by each day with a basket of handmade burritos.
Delicious fat burritos for $4.00. She’d sell out in less than a half hour, man I miss her burritos.
You would just have to find a local business that would allow you to sell whatever specialty lunch item you wanted to make.
Tip: Offer a free lunch to the manager as you are making your sales pitch.
Create Your Own Affiliate Based Niche Website:
My personal favorite.
A niche website can make as much money as you like.
You can supplement your monthly income simply by writing about the things that you love.
Maybe you just want to be able to work at home. Maybe an extra $1,500/mo to pay the mortgage.
Or maybe you want to make 5 figures per month.
If that sounds like you, then niche sites and blogs can be goldmines.
How Do Niche Websites Make Money?
You can take a niche skill or passion and easily make a blog or website based on that niche.
Spend your spare time developing the site.
As your site develops, you can then begin to list affiliate products from places like Amazon, eBay, or Etsy that relate to your niche.
One lady I know took her love of painting and created a neat blog teaching her painting techniques and giving free classes online.
Then she monetized the blog by recommending products that she uses when creating her artwork and lists art supply ads on her site.
Within a few months she started seeing sales of $2,000/mo. A few months later as her traffic increased, her sales jumped up close to $4,000 dollars.
I know another lady who had problems finding earrings that didn’t irritate her skin.
She worked with a manufacturer to develop a specialty earring that she designed that doesn’t irritate her earlobes.
She then put up her earring niche website and began selling her jewelry little by little. Within 5 years she built her business up to making $130,000/year.
Create a Local Web Presence:
Not every stay-at-home mom job needs a website or blog, but almost every job listed above would greatly benefit from having one.
What’s even better is that it’s easy and fun to do nowadays!
It doesn’t take that much time to put up a nice website to attract a local market.
Niche websites that are marketed to a specific location, i.e. your town, neighborhood, or city are super easy to get ranked on the first page in Google, YouTube, etc..
When creating a website name that is based on your business and location as well as writing articles featuring your niche and services, you can rank on page one of Google without any problem.
