Money Making Mums Blogger Interview: Alison from Thrifty Mum

Posted on

Hello, welcome to my Money Making Mums Interview. Please tell me a little about who you are, where you’re from and where you blog.

Hi. I'm Alison from Harlow in Essex. I have two toddlers and I blog at

This series is all about mums being able to make money from home. Can you tell me what you do from home to make money?

I do various side hustles that I can work around the kids. These include matched betting, surveys, money making apps and mystery shopping.

What makes it suitable for mums?

I can fit all of these in around both my children. When the oldest is at nursery, the youngest always naps so I make the most of that time. I then spend my evenings doing various side hustles.

What do you love about working from home?

I can do all of these things in my own time. Even if it means staying up until midnight. It also means I'm there all day for both my kids and not having to be out working.

What are your top three negatives to working from home?

I can only think of two! Getting distracted too easily and losing motivation sometimes.

If you could only pick one, either working from home or working in an office for the rest of your life, which would you pick?

Definitely working from home.

Lots of people say they’d find it hard to stay motivated if working alone at home. What keeps you motivated?

Knowing that the more I can earn from home, the more I can be there for my children as they grow up.

Do you have any advice or words of wisdom to share with mums wanting to make their own income from home?

Just to give it a go. Once you start earning money online, you find lots of other ways to help boost your income. Keep going and it will be worth it.


Thank you so much for taking part in my interview series!
