Homeschool Moms and Finances

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

With a sagging economy many homeschool moms feel stressed over their family's finances. With a lot of homeschool families living on one income, money, or lack thereof, can be a challenge. Here are some concrete ways you can help your family financial situation, while still being able to homeschool successfully:

1. Obtain a work at home job. While a part time job of any type helps, the travel committment can often eat into family and homeschool time. A work at home job lets you set flexible hours, and stay in your pajamas! You can choose hours to coincide with evening "daddy" time, or even during the school day if you have older children able to work independently. A company I can recommend with confidence is West At Home. Having worked for them on several occasions from home, for various projects, I can assure my fellow homeschool moms that they are valid and safe. While there is a small application fee, the opportunities are flexible and even fun! My last job for them had me answering the phones from my cozy home office and taking Livenation ticket orders. I enjoyed speaking with folks, and I even learned about the new artists of today, as I was still stuck in the 80's in terms of pop music! If you don't have a good internet connection, or sound computer skills, this might not be the job for you. However, if you are a great multitasker, looking to make a few extra dollars, West at Home is a company you will want to check out.

2. Put your skills to work for you. Are you an excellent knitter? Or can you make some mean gourmet cupcakes? Try turning these talents into cash! Offer to sell your creations to a local senior group, or at a church rummage sale. You may be surprised at the response you will get!

3. Share your skills. Are you a couponing queen? Perhaps you are a fantastic tap dance teacher! Use your skills to teach others and make some money. As homeschool moms we often undercut the value of our skills and abilities, but they are worth money! Charge a few dollars apiece for your homeschool group to glean your couponing 101 tips. Teach a local afterschool group a tap dance class for a small fee. Many folks would be happy to pay for your instruction and time.

Hopefully these suggestions will help you to become more financially secure. Then you can teach your homeschooler how to be financially fit and resourceful, too!
