More and more people are beginning to work from home and it’s no surprise. Working from home can save a great deal of money and family stress. Here are just a few of the benefits that can come when your commute is down the hall from your bedroom to your home office.
Most work from home jobs allow you a little bit more schedule flexibility than a normal in-office job would. There is the opportunity to work longer hours some days, while reducing hours the next day to fit the needs of your schedule. If you have the opportunity to stay a little ahead in your work those emergency sick days for you or your children aren’t as much of a problem. You can work after bedtime or during nap time. Just so long as you get your work done on time it doesn’t matter when it gets done.
More Income Control
Things don’t always turn out as planned, but when you are working at home it seems that you have a little more control over how much money you are making. In the freelance world you can take on more jobs when you need to or apply for higher paying jobs. Plus you sometimes have the time to try something new that may generate more income. Just be sure not to bite off more than you can chew. Taking on three huge jobs with impossible deadlines isn’t a good idea. If you don’t get the job done (and done well) it could hurt your income potential rather than help it.
Working from home rarely calls for work clothes. In fact often those who work from home do so in everyday errand outfits or (on the stressful days) in their pajamas. This means that the money that would go to provide work clothes can be used to pay off extra bills. It could even be used to do something fun.
Working from home requires very little driving, depending on your job. Many of the direct selling businesses now provide a website or a way to do online shows. Other jobs just don’t require a car at all, though they do require a computer. This can save on the second car payment, insurance, and gas money. In the end it’s well worth the savings.
