30 days to change

This is part of a 30 day series -30 Days to Change. I am giving you practical tips over the course of 30 days to have more change/cash by Christmas. If you missed a post, you can catch up here. If you have any tips or ideas for this series, or would like to submit a guest post for this series, please contact me.

If you like kids, but want to make more money than just a couple days around the holidays, you can try starting your own Mother’s Morning Out Program.

How to start this program::

  1. Decide how many kids you can keep at one time, and still keep your sanity.
  2. Decide how often you will offer this service {One Friday a month, every other week, etc.}.
  3. Decide the times you will keep the kids, and what you will do. {For example, if you keep them 8-12, you will need to offer lunch to the kids.}
  4. Decide what activities you will do, and what supplies you will need. If you are going to do holiday/seasonal related crafts, figure out how much it will cost to do that with each child.
  5. Decide how long you will continue this service. If you are trying to meet a goal of a certain amount, figure out how long it will take you to reach that goal.
  6. Decide you’re “target market”. I would recommend letting some of your mommy friends know that already know you, and you’ve already been around their children.
  7. Type up a flier with all the details, and start handing it out.
  8. Read this article here on how someone else started their own Mother’s Morning Out Program and made $150 while doing it.

Remember, this is to make some extra cash. If you loose your sanity in the process, it’s not worth it. If other people’s kids are not your thing, that is completely fine {I, personally, love my kids, and love some of my friends kids; however, I couldn’t handle more than an additional two kids without going crazy. 😉 }.
