How to Make Money as a $AHM

Please tell me I am not the only SAHM who likes to have/make/spend her own money!?!

I have always been a hard worker. I was a freshman in high school when I got my first job and I have been working ever since. My entire high-school career I had no social life because I was working nights and every weekend. I enjoyed making money! And I loved the financial freedom.

Now that I am 27 and have 2 little ones. The conversation between me and my husband comes up a lot. He reminds me I don’t have to work and I remind him that I want to! I work 2 days as a hairstylist for now. I love what I do and the people I work with. They are my second family. But I know one day I will have to give that up as my boys grow and get schedules of their own.

I never imagined I would one day be a full time SAHM, but I am quickly realizing that is going to be my reality.

So how can I still maintain my financial freedom as a full time SAHM? I want to share with you some of the ways I will always be able to generate an income.

1. Poshmark

For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s an App that allows you to list and sell your used clothes,accessories,jewelry, etc. Don’t we all have things in our closet that we haven’t touched in a while? List it on Poshmark! This site isn’t just for name brand items. I am in no way a designer hog. I am a very frugal shopper, most of my clothes come from TJ Maxx or online clearance sales. I have made a great deal of cash for the items I no longer wear. Sure, some things I sell for $5 but it adds up. It’s a great way to make some money.

2. Shopkick

This app gives you points for walking into stores! Thats it! The points are then redeemed for a gift card of your choice! It could not be easier. The app will tell you if you are near any stores that participate. You open up the app, walk in the store, a little blue bubble pops up on your screen, you tap it and walk out! Done! I have earned so many gift cards to stores and restaurants this way, it’s crazy! The best place to have this app is at the mall. A lot of stores participate and it actually can be fun! So next time you’re out shopping, download this app and start earning!!

3. Survey Mini

This app requires a little more work then Shopkick but it’s still a super easy way to earn. This app rewards you in gift cards for answering little surveys. The surveys will ask about stores or restaurants that you had recently visited. It takes 30 seconds at the most to answer these little questionnaires. Each time you finish, you get points which then get redeemed for a gift card of your choice!

4. MLM

Last but not least. I save this one for last because unfortunately so many people overlook this option. I used to be one of them, until I came across an MLM company I had a passion for. Let me tell you, the possibilities of starting your own business with an MLM that you love, are endless! There are no job requirements!!! Anyone can do it!

Starting my own business has given me so much excitement and promise, especially as a SAHM. I do my “work” when the kids take their 2 hour nap. I don’t like to call it work because it’s something I truly enjoy doing. That is why I stick with it. I am excited to see what this opportunity can bring me and my family in the future.

The MLM world is changing, especially with social media. I don’t have to leave the house! That’s the beauty of joining an MLM these days. So look at your options, find a company you are proud to stand with and put in the effort!

Can I just say, that in no way do I ever mean to minimize the work SAHMs do! As a SAHM I know first hand the work that goes into raising children, keeping the house clean, cooking meals, etc. I absolutely believe the work we put in around here is enough. However, I simply enjoy making some extra money and this post is only to help out those who feel the same.

5 Changes You’ll Notice After Using Essential Oils in your Home

I wanted to share the top 5 changes I noticed after using my starter kit because I hear a lot of people tell me they won’t use all the oils. I can promise you, you will. It’s like diving into a rabbit hole. Once you use one oil, you use another, then another and soon you are using them all and quickly become obsessed. πŸ˜†That’s what happened to me and everyone else I know who used the starter kit.

Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit is $160. You receive a powerful diffuser and 11 of YL’s most popular oils. The value of this kit is $300, so the kit is a steal!

I could go on and on about how I use the oils for everyday tasks and remedies, but I’m going to save us some time and just share with you the top 5 changes I noticed in our household once I started using these miracle oils.

1. Better Sleept’s true! If you read my blog post titled “Becoming an Oily Mom” you would know this was the main reason I knew these oils were legit. They helped my fussy son sleep. He’d sleep through his nap and sleep through the night. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

But not only him, my husband and I started sleeping better too. Who doesn’t want to sleep better? I made a roller bottle using coconut oil and lavender (kit oil) and would roll the bottom of my feet before bed. I’d sleep all the way till morning. We diffuse lavender in our room as well. ( All the rooms in my house have a diffuser). So you can see why sleep is my 1st mention. I’m nothing without a good nights sleep.πŸ˜‚ I’m sure you can relate!

2. Beautiful Skin I had read so many times how Frankincense essential oil is good for skin. ☝🏼Let me tell you something, frankincense has many uses, but I use my frankincense for one purpose and that is my skincare!

I know I’m missing out on it’s other wonderful healing properties, but what this oil has done for my skin is unimaginable.

I used to get bad break outs which would then leave acne scars and marks on my face. I never ever dreamed I would be the one to leave the house without make up. I was always too self conscious about my skin. But I am happy to share that I am now that mom that will leave the house without make up because my skin is amazing! I have no redness, my scars are disappearing and my fine lines are gone. I’ve actually had people ask me if I get Botox πŸ˜‚. I get compliments on my skin all the time!!! It’s so nice to get those compliments because I’ve never had people tell me that before. I have to give all the credit to my frankincense essential oil.

3. Better Health This one I noticed right away, not only for myself but for my boys. My oldest would always get sick around this time of year. His sickness would last for at least 2 weeks. It was miserable for the whole family! But this winter, since I’ve been using my oils, all has been good! At his worst, he had a runny nose. But to me that’s not sickness, that’s the body doing its job. We are constantly diffusing Thieves (kit oil) around the house, using a thieves hand sanitizer I made, and rubbing it on our feet and chest every night. And so far we’ve all been feeling great!

For myself, in addition to the diffusing, I drink hot honey water every morning and night and will add 2 drops of lemon essential oil (kit oil) to my glass mug. It’s delicious, I look forward to it everyday. I strongly feel that has helped boost my immune system as well among other health benefits like digestion. πŸ‹

4. Calmer Kids I thought this was a coincidence, but now I’m convinced this is true. When I diffuse Stress Away essential oil (kit oil blend), my kids are calmer! 🀭 I swear! I even have my mom diffuse it at her house when she babysits and she would tell you the same thing! I’ve noticed less crying, less tantrums and an overall happier atmosphere during our days at home. You’re welcome πŸ˜‰.

5. Good Smelling Home

I have a 75 lb Doberman Pinscher and 2 babies still in diapers. I am constantly worried my home smells bad. I used to light candles and use Febreeze everyday to mask odors.

Now that my household is chemical free, it’s worked in my favor. Diffusing oils actually kill the airborne germs, allergens and odor. So there is nothing to ‘cover up’ . That was easy.

I also made my own fabric refresher. I use my Purification (kit oil blend) which is an odor neutralizer and smells wonderful. I’ll mix that with some peppermint or lemon ( both kit oils). I’ll mix it with some witch hazel and water in a spray bottle and spray my entire house down. Unlike the Febreeze I was using, the scent of the oils linger much longer and they are also anti bacterial and will disinfect surfaces. Bonus!

Another quick example, I make a mattress mist for my babies that I spray before they go to sleep to help them relax. Now my boys always smell like lavender and cedarwood πŸ˜‚. Other people will always mention how good they smell. Haha now you know my secret!

Like I said earlier, I could probably add 95 more bullet points about all the changes I noticed in my home after using Young Livings Premium Starter Kit. Im a distributor because I want to get a kit in everyone home so they can experience what I’ve experienced. So if you have any questions, ask away. Im overjoyed to answer any questions.

If you have read enough and want a kit for your home! Congrats! I’m excited for you!My link is below, please use it and I will contact you afterwards to help walk you through everything you need to know! ❀️
