Working at home can help you save money for the holidays without sacrificing time with your family.
Working at home isn’t limited to data entry jobs, as it used to be. Wherever your skills lie, you can use them to work at home. Whether you work outside the home or are a stay-at-home mom, working for a couple hours a day at a WAH job can give you a nice nest egg for Christmas gifts. Some jobs might require you to have a separate office or room that you can use to take phone calls, so make sure you know the requirements for any WAH job before you take it.
As you start to think about what work at home jobs you can do, think about your skills. Are you a good writer? Pick up a few clients freelance writing. Are you great at using social media to connect with people? Work as a social media specialist for local businesses. You can do phone customer service for big companies, transcription services, or data entry.
Here is a link that could get the ideas flowing as to what kind of jobs are available to you. Money Saving Mom also has a few good articles about WAH jobs and avoiding scams.
