Any housewife will tell you that being a stay-at-home mom is not an easy job. It's never-ending work with occasional breaks, juggling between household chores and children to care for.

But, in today's economy, anything can happen, especially with the rising cost of living.

It can be difficult for some families to rely solely on a single source of income, especially since the outbreak is still ongoing.

It will be nice to have some extra cash on hand to support your family and relieve your husband's financial burden in times of need.

As a result, we have five brilliant ideas for making a side income from the comfort of your own home. It is time for all housewives to get creative to earn money.

Let's get this party started, ladies!

 

#1. Drop shipping.

Drop shipping is an excellent option for Malaysian housewives who want to earn extra money while working from home. As a drop shipping agent, you are not required to keep inventory.

All you have to do is promote and take orders from customers, which you will then pass on to the sales team. The advantage is that you can do it anytime and from any location, and you can even promote the product to your next-door neighbour.

The products available for drop shipping are seemingly endless. The sky is the limit when it comes to promoting clothing or selling cakes.

Depending on the products you select, you can either mark up the price of the product or earn a commission on each sale.

Some drop shipping companies charge fees, while others offer free registration. You must choose the one that best meets your requirements.

Pro tip: When selecting a product for drop shipping, select one with which you are familiar and have prior experience. The best way to go about it is to try it out first. Don't just outright sell something you don't understand. Make an informed decision.

 

#2. Online selling.

Do you always want to be a successful businesswoman? We believe that now is the time to embrace your entrepreneurial side by selling online.

Many people use online platforms to buy or sell items. Why not take advantage of this?

Do you have a lot of unused items at home that you think you can sell for money? To begin, you can sell your used items on online marketplaces such as Mudah, Carousell, or Shopee.

The marketplace platforms are easy to use. Upload your photos (make sure they are clear and look nice), add some descriptions, and you are on your way to making your first online sale. Selling online will help you sharpen your sales skills.

Pro tip: You can also sell your items among your friends by using your social media platform. Pack and deliver your items to your customers using a courier service such as Ninja Packs.

 

#3. Create tuition or teach neighbourhood kids.

Do you have any hidden talents or knowledge that you'd like to share with others? It's time to put your knowledge and abilities to good use.

Although becoming a full-time teacher may not be an option right now, you can still work as a tutor and set your own hours.

You can teach children in both primary and secondary school if you have a university degree. Have you got something up your sleeve that can help others, such as stellar design abilities or computer skills?

These abilities are extremely valuable and should be passed on to others.

How do you get started as a tutor in Malaysia? If you want to teach a tutor lesson online, you can sign up on websites like Teachnlearn or TeachMe.

Another option is to offer tutoring or a tuition class in your community.

Pro tip: If teaching is truly your passion, focus on giving your students the best lesson possible. Words do spread, and with luck, you will be able to earn a good living while doing what you enjoy.


#4. Cooking or baking.

Do you have a knack for cooking? Or do you have the ability to create Instagram-worthy cakes? If this is the case, there will be a large number of people eager to try it. It's time to get started.

There are many home bakers and home cooks who have started their own businesses from home these days. Who says you can't get crafty and creative with your food even if you're staying at home? It could be the start of your baking career or business.

For those who are just getting started, you can look into supplying your home-cooked food to local stalls or restaurants. It can be as simple as Aiskrim 1 Malaysia or as elaborate as local delicacies. It is entirely up to you!

If you want to market your cooking and expand your options, you can always sell it online! Use social media to reach out to more customers by posting images of your delectable food on Instagram or Facebook.

Pro tip: Your best chance of success is to sell food that you can cook the best. Examine the market to see which foods or desserts are in high demand.
