You have probably seen an advertisement on Craigslist, or on the side of your Facebook page, that says “Make money from home!”.  If you are tired of commuting, or cannot stand your boss, this idea may seem like a dream come true.  Beware, though, because many of those ads are nothing more than a scam.  There are some legitimate ways to make money from home that you could try instead.

One way to make money from home is to work from home.  Some companies will allow employees to virtually commute to work.  My husband is doing this, and has been for quite some time now.  He works for a company that offers an answering service for their clients.

This company has allowed a few of their workers to connect to the office from their home computers, and do their work that way.  Perhaps your place of employment will do something similar?  This can work for people who primarily do “office work”, or are doing data entry.

Another way to make money at home is to make things that you can sell.  If you are “crafty”, then this could be a natural way to make some money off of the things you sew, crochet, knit, or create.

I would recommend that you check out Etsy.com, so you can get a good idea about what types of items are sold through there.  The next step is to photograph your crafts, and set up your Etsy page.  In order to make sales, you are going to have to put some effort into letting potential customers know about your Etsy page.  This is going to involve the skilled use of social media websites.

Do you live near a college or university?  Students are required to write a plethora of papers for nearly every class that they take.  Many of these students will benefit from hiring someone to edit their papers for them.  Create an eye-catching flyer, that describes what you are willing to edit, and the price you will charge for it.  Put your email address on the flyer.  You could, potentially, have “clients” who email you their paper, for you to edit, and email back to them.

Music lessons often take place in the home of the instructor.  This is especially true if someone wants to learn how to play the piano (since pianos are heavy, and not easy to transport).  If you are a skilled musician, you could make money from home by giving lessons.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
