Now that The Goose is in school all day, and I have a bit more time on my hands, I have been looking for ways to make extra money, while still being a stay-at-home mom. These are the different ways that I’ve been able to make extra money without sacrificing family time.
1. Etsy – If you are creative, Etsy is a great place to sell your homemade creations. If you’re not creative (like me), but you’re able to make a product that people actually want to buy (like my dryer balls), then you should absolutely try selling on Etsy!
Every year my husband is overwhelmed at the amount of celebrations we have within just a few months. In October we have our wedding anniversary, in November it’s The Goose’s birthday, December is Christmas, January is my birthda
y and February is Valentine’s Day. And while I don’t think I’m that hard to shop for, finding gifts for all of these occasions (except The Goose’s birthday – The Goose is the only one who receives gifts that day) can be quite a task.
This year, I thought I’d help him (and anybody else who wants to buy a gift for me) out by laying it all on the line.
If you have an iPhone, you undoubtedly know the pain of watching your battery slowly (or quickly) drain while there was nothing you could do to stop it. The first time it happened to me was last year at The Goose’s fifth birthday party. We were at Chuck E. Cheese, I didn’t have a charging cord, and I had to run from person to person asking to borrow their phone so I could take pictures. Then I had to send the photos to myself, and collect the various photos from the various phones. It was a nightmare.
It wasn’t until later that I realized my battery was rapidly draining because I was doing everything wrong. If your phone is always losing it’s charge, keep reading to find out how to stop it.
I know I’m not the only one. Facebook was often the last thing I saw at night, the first thing I saw in the morning. I’d walk around with my phone attached to my hand, as if I were going to die if I didn’t know what my Facebook friends were eating for lunch, or what the latest quiz could tell me about my dead soul mate.
I’ve been on Facebook for almost nine years. I have enjoyed using Facebook to catch up with old friends, reconnect with distance relatives, stay up to date with my favorite celebrities. I’ve loved watching as my childhood friends have graduated college, gotten married and had children of their own.
