How Pete from Household Money Saving makes extra income from home

Every Friday I invite other home money making bloggers and money making mums to share the ways busy parents can make money from home.  These are real life people making a living from home who can share their experience with us and inspire us.  

I love making money from home. 

As a busy mum to two young children, working from home for myself provides me with the flexibility I need to care for my children and avoid high full time childcare costs.  It also means I get to do what I love. 

I’m an advocate of earning money online and from apps.  I’m always looking for new ways to make more money from home and hope to be inspired by the many people in this interview series.


Pete Household Money Saving

Welcome, tell me a little about who you are, where you’re from and introduce your blog. 

Pete Chatfield from Kent. I blog at I look at ways of making and saving money.

Tell me, how do you make money from home?

I make money from survey sites.

What makes it suitable for mums?

It can be done at any time of the day. Plus, you often know beforehand how long a survey takes, so you can often fit one in even if you have just 10 minutes spare. You can even make money when you’re queuing outside the school gates!

What are three benefits of working at home?

Never get stuck in traffic, nobody ever steals your sandwiches from the fridge (well, maybe your partner) and you work when you want to.

What are three negatives?

The social life is much quieter, your income isn’t guaranteed and it can sometimes be a little boring.

If you could only pick one, working from home or going to an employed job for the rest of your life, which would you pick?

Quite a tough choice. I would probably work from home although I would miss the social side of an office. I wouldn’t miss getting up at 5 though.

People say they find it hard to be productive working alone at home. What keeps you motivated?

I set a goal on what I’m working towards. At the moment, we want to have a garage conversion. We have an amount we need to save, so I mark it off in a calendar as we get closer.

Do you have a favourite quote to keep you inspired?

No. My inspiration comes from my family and unfortunately, they don’t have any good quotes!

What words of wisdom can you share with mums looking to make their own income from home?

Don’t expect to start earning big money straight away. It takes time before you figure out how to make money efficiently. And make sure you use forums and Google to find advice from others in a similar situations.

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