Excessive day-to-day activities force us to leave our hobbies. However, now that you have time, you can take advantage of it to make some money. Skills like painting, baking, knitting etc., can help earn money for mothers.

Even if you can bake 2 or 3 cakes every day and sell them, you will have enough money by the end of the month. Also, you are not required to invest heavily in such projects!

The price of each question varies from €3 to €10. You can solve 10 to 20 questions a day and earn up to €50 on average.
