Housewives are always looking to earn online money. The reason being that they understand the need of money better than any other family member. Sometimes, the income of husband is just not sufficient to meet monthly expenses. Even if so, what about future savings and retirement?
Another reason is that housewives have plenty of time for some constructive work. They can not opt for 10-6 job but after finishing household work, they want some part-time job to earn extra income.
In this article, we’ll analyze 10 different ways to earn extra income for housewives.
1. Home Tuition
If you’re educated enough, you can start tuition for your favorite subjects – Maths, Science, Computers etc. Just see what is the requirement in your area and what is your specialization. You can start 1-2 groups for different subjects also. Start with low fees to start your business. Once students start giving positive feedback for you to others, you can increase your fees.
If students are far away, you can use technology like Skype or any other video chatting software to give tuition through internet. You can even record your videos to play them later for other students. In this way, you’ll have your own e-library of lectures.
It is one of the favorite way to earn money for housewife. The reason being it’s simple to learn. Just 3-4 months, and you’ll become expert in cutting and tailoring suits for other ladies and kids.
Look at yellow pages of your area for “Learn Tailoring” column.
You can also seek help of some old lady to learn tailoring and pay her fees and / or some useful gift to her.
In this profession, you need not to go outside your home to earn money. Customers will come to your home for tailoring, stitching etc. and to take delivery of finished suit.
The small pieces of clothes, which are left over, on cutting and stitching are also useful. Just collect them in a bag and sell them later. You’ll earn good profit on that too.
3. Event Managers
Ladies generally have organizational skills. Thanks to their experience of handling home and family members. But do you know you can use this skill to earn money?
Just become “Event Manager”. Now-a-days, people are too busy in their life to celebrate any event of their life. Be its birthday. kitty parties, marriage, anniversaries, picnic, family get-together etc. They do not have time for booking restaurant or hotel, shopping, new clothes, invitation, entertainment, making menu for food etc. If you can manage such events, from start to end, and finally put smile on your customer face, you are in.
You’ll get handsome fees for all this and good reputation in your society too. You’ll have links with many people in a short span of time, which you can use for some other business later on.
Also, restaurant owners, jewelry showroom etc. give good commission to event managers. Talk openly to them before taking your customer there.
But remember, for the success of this profession, you need to move out of your house.
If you’re good in kitchen, leave everything else in this article, and read this carefully. Not every lady is a good cook. See your neighbor.
You can start cooking for kitty parties, lunch for near by offices or some packed food. The food should be healthy, hygienic and not so salty or oily. Make the balance between health and taste.
Start learning new recipes from cooking books or cooking websites. You can even make video of your recipe and upload on YouTube and earn money from advertisement (Explore Google adsense).
5. Trade in Stock market or Forex Market

The software is generally free of cost. You busy some share at low levels and sell them at higher levels. That’s it.
But it’s not so easy as it sounds. You need to have strong fundamental or technical knowledge of company / stock chart to put your hard earned money.
Stay away from Put / Call / Future Options. They are for experts only.
Trading in forex market is very risky. You can make millions in a day or forget them. Your principal amount can vanish before your eyes in just few seconds.
So, before you start any kind of trading, I suggest you to learn at least technical analysis of charts. It is not so difficult.
