Here are a few ways Anna & I have found to make extra cash and earn some rewards (think gift cards and store credit) at home. I've been interested in how to make money at home since I had Ian twenty-eight years ago. Anyone remember those mall surveys? I remember as a young mom stopping to do one and making FIFTY bucks. Heck, that was huge to me. Most of the same survey companies are now online. These are legit. Some are a little complicated, and some are easy, I guess it depends on how bad you want to be at home with the baby and not chasing someone else's dreams.

Honestly, I would first recommend starting a blog and monetizing it like we are right now. So here is a link to our favorite hosting site ($3.95 a month to start a blog that could potentially (won't lie, it's work, but it's rewarding) make you thousands. Read this if you are interested in more about blogging and also how we took our Pinterest Monthly viewers from Zero to over a million in less than two months.


Here is a link to Surveymomma which can earn you $25-$75 per survey. This is similar to the surveys I did at the mall. Imagine that these big companies are planning expensive products. Well, they want to know what real moms think before they spend billions. Twenty-Five bucks equal chump change to them but so beneficial to you.

Earn some credit towards a vacation!

If you don't know, I am a lover of all things travel related. I've been traveling by car across the country a couple of times a year since 2008. Being a travel nurse has been the most rewarding career. It fulfills both my loves, being a labor nurse and traveling.


You can make money at home by shopping through EBates at your favorite stores. This will earn you cash back on your purchases and then get your big Fat Check or Paypal payment afterward.


Another way to earn money at home through surveys. I'm encouraging my daughter to start doing these to make extra money for school. I think this is pretty awesome as her studies keep her super busy. This gives her ownership of making some money at home and earning rewards as well.

Coke vs. Pepsi

Duh, I'm just saying…I won't give my opinion here, but this is no brainer to me. I think we all have a strong feeling on this one so let's stay friends and not mention our preference. It could be fighting words. Ok Peep, I will send some more links your way another day. As always, hop on over and read some of our posts and show us some love. We are a tribe. Let's support one another!
