2. Sign up For Cash Back Apps

One of the easiest ways to make money from home is by signing up for cash-back apps. One of my favorite apps to earn cash-back is Fetch Rewards. With Fetch Rewards, you earn money back when you upload your recent grocery receipts from a store. Currently, when you sign up you can earn 2000 bonus points ($2.00 in points) when you enter my referral code UTA17  during sign up and upload any grocery receipt from the last 14 days.


When you upload receipts you earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards from different stores and redeemed for regular cash gift cards. I just recently turned in my points and got a $10 Amazon gift card. 


Another website you can join to make passive income is Swagbucks. Swagbucks is one of my favorite go-to sites if I need to make an additional $100- $200 bucks a month.

3. Sign Up For Research Studies 

Another awesome way to make money from home is by signing up to complete research studies online. Places such as Respondent let individuals sign up for different research studies and make money.  The research studies on the Respondent range from technology studies to parent and family studies. There is literally something for everybody to qualify for on the site. 


The pay varies but most studies are between $20 to $300 and you can earn money by referring others to the site on the sign-up as well. I love this site because there are always studies that you can apply for on a daily basis. 

4. Start A Blog

This is by far the best way for me to make money from home. When I started my blog in 2016 I had no idea that it would turn into a full-time business. Since starting my blog I have made thousands each month and have the chance to work from home with my children. 


 It’s the perfect way for me to do what I love on a daily basis plus increase my income. One of my favorite ways to make money from blogging is from working with an ad publishing company. I currently work with Mediavine and in one month I made over $1000 in ad revenue alone. That income doesn’t include my earning from affiliate marketing, sponsored posts and from selling my own products. 



As stated above some of the best ways to make money through a blog are affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, creating your own products and through an ad publishing company
