Work from home #1

Sitting in a doctor's office waiting room, I filled out pages and pages of information.  To my surprise and pleasure, when it came to the employment area, "Full-time parent" was listed as one of the choices!

I just about fell out of my chair.  (which probably would have alarmed the doctor's office staff!)

I was so happy, I wanted to hug the man sitting next to me.  (Though by the sounds of his lung-crumbling cough, I don't think it would have been good for my health to have contact with him.)

At home moms (SAHM's) are a busy group.  We cook, clean, run around town, hold the family calendar and, as a financial advisor once told me, tend to manage the household finances.  Working moms often do all of the same only after they get home from an already busy day at work!

Regardless of whether a mom is at home or work outside of the home, money-earning and money-saving tips are always welcome.  (Provided they are good tips and not of the Invest-$10K-With-Us-And-We'll-Make-You-Rich-In-An-Hour kind of tip your Uncle Robbie can't stop talking about at family gatherings.)

I am picky.  I will not spend my time on anything that will earn me $0.05 per hour of survey-taking or anything that will suck up so much time, my kids will be neglected.

Here is a tip I found recently with a reputable organization:

Make Money Scanning Your Groceries!

I have signed up, and it was a breeze!


  1. Wow...finally recognized...I was a SAHM too and often was made to feel like I did glad that doctor put it on the form. Things are changing finally...slow but sure...

  2. Great tip! Thanks for the link.

  3. Don't forget the Insecure Writer's Support Group post next month on January 4!
