I have been on maternity leave for a year and gone back to work and going to be off work again in February with baby no 2.

I wanted to do something at home to make extra money and wondered if you guys could help with some ideas please?

I was thinking typing, selling things on ebay/gumtree, maybe a weekend cleaning job whilst husband looks after kids.

Only get stat maternity pay so need to do something to supplement income

Your help is much appreciated

If you'd consider a weekend job, you might be able to find something in retail or a restaurant/pub easily. Selling online could work but do you want to be starting a business? Also, have you checked if you're allowed to maternity pay if you're working?

I am allowed to do self employed work but not other work through another employer.

I will obviously declare my additional self employed work... Just need to think of good ideas and then focus on building it uo
