FrugalMom's Top Work At Home Programs

Work at home recommendations for work from home moms (and dads).  Many parents love the idea of staying home with their children, but they cannot always afford to give up a second income.  That is why I have put together this information on work from home ideas for work at home moms and dads.

In the following 3 sections you will find:

If you are investigating working from home, SBI offers a free WAHM guide about being a Work at Home Mom (WAHM) or Dad.  The guide is actually 3 ebooks, complete with case studies, a book on getting organized, and the WHAM guide.  Free Download - zip file with all three books.

Working from home falls into two categories:  Either you are going to sell something or your are going to provide a service.  Here are our picks for both categories:

"Low Risk - Low Investment" Work at Home Solutions

These work from home picks have very little up-front cost, low ongoing cost and do not require you to stock products.

FrugalMom's Editor's Picks for Providing Services Working From Home

Rounding out our low cost and low investment work from home picks, these solutions allow you to work as little as you like, or as much as you wish. Please note you are not going to make a living from paid surveys, but its a way to augment other income and/or get some "extra" spending money each month.   If you are looking for a real home based business, continue to scroll down.

Freelance Work Exchange

We've reviewed this program and can highly recommend Freelance Work Exchange. I have to admit, reviewing the site was hard, because I kept getting distracted by all the interesting opportunities.

  • Freelance Writing Jobs: Writing, Design, Proofreading

  • Freelance Programming Jobs :Programming, Software Development and Technical jobs

  • Too many Freelance Work From Home Listings to list!

In addition to all of the current freelance job postings, they offer many free productivity tools, including free software downloads and ebooks.

$2.95 gets you an (almost) Free Trial Check it out for yourself for a week with no limitations, and for less than the cost of a good cup of coffee.!

Paid Online Surveys

Our top pick for Paid Online Surveys:

Maximum Paid Surveys

In researching this paid online survey company the terms ultimate reference, premium source, most authoritive site and others just kinda jumped out at me. This site doesn't promise anything others don't, they just seem to deliver. I was also impressed by the honesty of the following statement on their web site:

NFO - My Survey

This is my personal favorite survey company!  I have been a member of their company for years and I love them.  I receive a lot of surveys from them and they are great at sending money. I also like  American Consumer Opinion  They pay really well!  As a member of American Consumer OpinionŽ, you will have the opportunity to participate in surveys, test new products, and evaluate new commercials.  - Frugal Mom
