Welcome to our post – 5 Perfect Stay At Home Jobs For Busy Parents.

Being a stay at home parent is, without a doubt, the hardest and most rewarding job on the planet.

I am very lucky that when my son was born my wife to be (in 5 days 🙂 was able to take the whole year off.

Sadly the year passed far to quick and it was back to work, BUT it was only for 2 days a week.

We were able to afford this by doing several different work from home jobs.

Spending time with your children is so important and I will be forever grateful for the opportunities I am sharing with you in this post.

We tried quite a few different jobs for stay at home parents and we eventually settled on eCommerce.

In this post, I will share with you the 5 best jobs for stay at home parents that brought us in some extra money.

I hope you find these useful.

5 Perfect Stay At Home Jobs For Mums & Dads.

1 – Work From Home Flipping Products.

What is flipping? You can check out Wikipedias definition here.

Flipping means you buy a product for x and then sell it for a higher price quickly. But with my version, I don't buy any products and nor will you.

 Stay At Home Jobs For Mums & Dads, Today we share 5 jobs jobs you can do working from home on your computer.

Here is what I do – I look on eBay and Amazon for products which I can then flip on the opposite site.

I have found many items on Amazon which I then list on eBay.

Once the item sells on eBay I then jump on Amazon and send the item to my customer on eBay and keep the difference in price.

There are literally thousands of items which you can make a profit on including night lights, tents, cameras and much more.

Doing a quick search (2/7/18) here is an item you could make over £20 on after fees for every one you sell.

Please remember if you are reading this on a date different to the above the prices could have changed.

Check out this hot tub on eBay for £400

You can buy the same hot tub on Amazon for £369.99

So you would list this on eBay, then once it sells you buy from Amazon and have them send it directly to your customer.

The hot tub listing on eBay has sold 19 in a week! You could list yours at £395 and start getting sales today.

The best thing about this style of flipping is that you never have to lay out any of your own money.

You only buy from Amazon once you receive the money from your customer on eBay.

2 – Work From Home Taking Online Surveys.

Jobs for stay at home parents

We were making between £250 / £300 every month doing online surveys and using cashback sites.

The best advice I can give you about survey sites is to join as many as possible.

They are free to join and you have more chance of earning money each day.

Also, some survey sites have referral programmes which mean if you recommend them to a friend or family member then you can also earn some more money once they join and take part in surveys.

Normally a survey takes between 5 and 10 minutes, however, I have taken some surveys which have lasted 20 minutes but you do get paid more for the longer ones.

Top Tip – Open a new email account for your survey sites so you never miss the opportunity to take a survey.

Below is a list of the survey sites we use and which pay the most.

Toluna – Surveys and also email, visit sites and more.

Inbox Pounds – Lots of survey sites on this site including I Poll, Toluna and more.

Swagbucks – One of my favorite sites and I still use them today. You can make money with Swagbucks in many different ways and surveys are just one of them.

I have written a full article on Swagbucks and how you can make money using the site. Click Here To Read.

Survey Junkie – Expect between 3 and 6 surveys a week.

YouGov – Get rewarded for giving your opinion on a variety of topics and subject.

American Consumer  – One of the biggest companies around with over 6 million subscribers and counting.

Clix Sense – This company is HUGE. They have partnered with other online survey sites including Toluna, YourSurveys, and Opinion World so you do get more surveys available to you.

3 – Stay At Home Jobs – Drop Shipping.

Make money drop shipping products - Not Taught At School

When I first started selling on eBay I had heard about drop shipping products but wasn't sure in the beginning how it worked or how to get started.

Drop shipping is similar to flipping products as mentioned above but with so much more potential.

You can list thousands of products and never touch or see them.

I will break it down into 3 steps for you.

1 – You advertise products on your eBay account or online shop.

2 – Once you make a sale, you order the product from your drop shipping company.

3 – The company then send the product to your customer directly and you keep the profit.

I have written a full post on how to make money drop shipping which you can see here. 

4 – Free Lancing.
