Money making mums interview with Eda of Money for Mummy

How to make money as a stay at home mum

Every Friday I invite other 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 income from home and hope to be inspired by the many people in this interview series.

Now for the interview.  Enjoy!

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

Hi, I'm Eda, a 31 year old new mum of one. My little one has just turned 8 months, and I recently agreed to go back to my job part time to enable me to spend 2 days of the week with her. It worked out better for me to do this financially as well as personally, but I still wanted to find ways to fill the gap in our family income. As I began to find good online money earning opportunities that could help with this, I spoke to lots of mums who were also struggling to find the work-life balance they wanted as they reached the end of their maternity leave. That is how the idea for my blog,, came about. I wanted to share my experiences of finding ways of working that could fit around family life and childcare.

Tell me, how do you make money from home?

There are lots of different ways and I've still got lots more to try! My main extra income currently comes from mystery shopping, phone apps like Roamler, a few surveys, website testing and recently, audio transcription.

What makes it suitable for mums?

I'm focusing on work that can be competed as small tasks that do not take too long to complete, and that can be done at any time of the day (or night). This means I stand a better chance of being able to fit the work in around my baby's nap times, or when she's happy playing by herself for a bit, or if someone else is looking after her.

What are three benefits of working at home?

The main benefit is that I get to spend more time with my daughter. I also really enjoy finding my own work and being in control of my working days/hours.

What are three negatives?

There are so many options it can be hard to decide what to focus on, especially when I'm also trying to get housework done! I always want to do more and often find I don't give myself any time off which can be exhausting, especially when my head is full of ideas and it stops me sleeping properly! It can be frustrating if there is work I want to get on with but I'm not able to because my baby decides to skip her usual nap.

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?

That's a tough one, because I think when I finish my maternity leave I'm going to enjoy having a combination of the two! I like the stability of employment and if it paid enough to cover childcare and living costs I would probably pick that, but it doesn't, even though I have a good salary. So now I have my child's interests at heart, working from home would be my preference.

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

I'm motivated by the fact I'm enjoying what I'm doing. There is a lot of choice with online working, so I have the freedom to focus on the tasks I like, and not bother with the ones I don't.

Do you have a favourite quote to keep you inspired?

There's always a way.

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

Believe that it's possible! There are lots of opportunities out there that can work around family life and childcare that pay a decent amount. You will be able to find something you find interesting and enjoyable if you know where to look, and that is what I am hoping to assist with through the blog.

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