I am a proud stay at home mom. I only have one child, Colette. Soon, our little family will be moving to a much larger, much more expensive house. Things will be financially tight for awhile.
And I was wondering if anyone knows how to help boost their income, and still be able to stay home and raise their child(ren)? Thank you!

If you enjoy kids maybe take on watching a few that are around your daughter's age. This gives you some extra money and her some playmates.

Tough one. I know being a stay at home mom is just a sacrifice you make...and then cut back on things you would normally have....but one thing I did : I always had a passion for photography and decided to invest some money into it, as well as learning it better, courses, workshops, etc and then started my own photography business. I am at home all the time, except an hour here or there shooting or maybe a weekend for a wedding. But I do have late late nights editing and a few hours a week contacting clients, advertising, etc. For the most part, I get to be home and make a few extra dollars doing what I love. That avenue isn't for everyone though...it is a commitment because no one will forward the business but you. I know a lot of my mom friends that stay at home sell things like Avon, MaryKay and Scentsy. So maybe something like that could help too?

Jazmin: You would be better off going to the work from home community and asking in there.
