10 Sideline Jobs for Extra Income From Home

There is the impression that stay-at-home moms have a lot of free time. But the truth of the matter is, stay at home moms are quite busy, especially if they have kids to take care of. There are house chores to do, cooking, laundry and even tutoring or homeschooling the kids. I remember that I only had the chance to do some part-time work when my kids began going to school.

Now, if you have some extra time to use to earn some income, what would you do? For me, it was best to find a source of income that would not require me to leave the house for practical reasons. Well, it's good to know that there is a lot of work at home opportunities. Even if you just have a few hours to spare, you can earn extra money from home.

Take a look at these suggestions to start earning money at home during your free time. I actually have earned from home using 5 of the 10 suggestions on this list.

How to Make a Peking Opera Headdress and Costume - a DIY Project

It's been a long time since I've been thinking of writing this post. But I keep postponing. It's the start of another school year and I just want to get over with this pending blog post about the DIY Peking Opera costume project that my daughter had to make for her school requirements, which I mentioned in a previous post.

I hope this post can help you make your kids' costumes as well. It's not just that I like making costumes, it also helps us save some cash. If I were to have this Peking Opera costume made by someone else, it would probably cost more than Php500. My daughter told me that some of her classmates paid Php1,000 for their costumes.

Without further ado, here is the DIY steps for making a Peking Opera Costume.

How to Help Your Child Choose a College Degree

Choosing a college degree is one of the decisions that one should consider carefully. It affects how much income one will earn in the future and how satisfied or happy a person will be. As parents, we could help our children make their choices. We will not make the choice for them. We will just guide them.

How many times have you heard of someone who started taking a college degree and then jumped to two other courses and ended up not finishing anything? I bet you've heard someone tell this sort of experience. I heard it from my father.

Making a sound choice is a deliberate process. It is not good to just go drifting, trying one course and then another and another. So, how do you help your children choose a college degree that is best for them and one that they will finish with certainty?

I am happy 😊 that my son is going to college in August. He is taking a course in Electronics Engineering at Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. I don't know why he chose this course but I am just here to support him attain a good college education. Hopefully, someday soon he will be well compensated for the years he spent studying.

I don't really know which college degree is best or ends up with the biggest paychecks nowadays. But I guess in this age of technology, most likely the computer "geeks" get the better salaries. Let's see what different researches say about this topic. I looked up some trends in 2018-2019.
