Ways for mums to make money
I got this little message through the webiste from a lovely lady called Helen:
I am a subscriber to your blog and your daily messages remind me that there are practical ways of affording time off with your baby, although I think the messages hold strong even when your children grow up. My eldest is nearly 7 now and the ideas are just as useful.
Spurred on by one of the ideas in your book I have done two NCT Nearly New Sales this year and raised £290 at one (a big room style sale where the NCT took 25% commission tho – fair enough) and £162 at the next one (this was a table top style sale for which I paid £10 for the table and handled my own sales).
For anyone whose baby days are pretty much over I would really recommend participating in a sale and see what you can do. Check out the Nearly new NCT sale finder
Supporting you to become the parent you want to
(In case you don’t know the NCT is the national childbirth trust charity.)
I think this is a really timely reminder from Helen to check out where your local NCT sale is and to get involved. Just gather up all you bab y stuff you are finished with ready to sell . Helen did so well didn’t she! By clearing the way now, not only will you make some money in preperation for Christmas but you will also have decluttered, brilliant.
Thanks Helen for sharing what worked for you. I love to hear everybodies tips and share them with the rest of you so please send any good ideas you have through to me at Becky@babybudgeting.co.uk. I would love to hear from you.
Next months posts are all about saving money on special opccasions, christenings, birthdays, halloween, naming days even weddings. Please get involved and if you would like to guest post that would be fantastic x
