Work from home

When you think of Pinterest, you probably think of repurposed window frames and vintage wedding dresses.

But it’s actually an amazing place for career and business information — specifically, for advice about how to work from home.

So, with the help of our very own Pinterest specialist Gretchen Lindow, I’ve compiled a list of 16 fabulous work-from-home Pinterest accounts and boards.

Each one is full of jobs and tips — and will inspire you to start your work-from-home journey today!

1. Color Me Frugal

Color Me Frugal focuses on living your best life while spending less.

We like her Making Money board best, since it includes lots of ideas for home-based and online businesses.

2. Financegirl

I met Natalie Bacon at FinCon last year, where she won the award for “Best New Personal Finance Blog.”

Clearly, she’s doing something right!

Her Pinterest game is also strong, and her Make Money board covers a wide range of money-making ideas.

3. FreebieFindingMom

Kelli Bhattacharjee loves working from home because it allows her “to spend more time with [her] little one” and “save money by not having to commute.”

If that sounds right up your alley, check her Make Money at Home board for tips and job leads.  

4. Frugal Fanatic

Addi Ganley might be best-known for her budgeting worksheets, but she also has some great boards for aspiring remote workers.  

Her Work From Home board features 245 pins with everything from blogging tips to full-time work-from-home jobs.

And if that’s not enough, check her Making Money board, which has 1,800 pins (in Lindow’s words: EVERYTHING).

5. Levo

You know we’re all about side hustles here at The Penny Hoarder.

So we’re big fans of Levo’s board Season of Side Hustle (and the site in general!).

“Levo is mostly dedicated to career advice, but this board has some great ideas you might not have already seen elsewhere,” Lindow explains.

6. Making Sense of Cents

Lots of people dream of making the big bucks as a blogger, but it’s harder than it looks. (Trust me — I know!)

If you’re dedicated to #bloglife, check out Michelle Schroeder’s Make Money Blogging board.

She earned $72,000 in March, so I’m guessing she knows what she’s talking about!

7. My Stay At Home Adventures

Who says staying at home is boring?

Joyce, a mom of four, shares pins about parenting, frugal living and online business from her My Stay At Home Adventures account.

Our favorite part is her Ways To Earn Money board.

“It’s smaller,” Lindow says, “but it only contains ways to earn money that have been vetted.”

8. Proofread Anywhere

We’ve highlighted proofreading on this site before — and the subject of that post, Caitlin Pyle, has an awesome website and Pinterest presence.

Although Proofread Anywhere is useful for anybody who wants to work for themselves, it’s particularly sweet if you want to grow a proofreading side hustle.

9. Real Ways To Earn Money Online

As its name suggests, this site focuses on legitimate ways to earn money online.

Though its main Pinterest page has more than 50 boards focused on that topic, you’ll probably like the Work From Home and Work From Home – Expert Tips boards best.

10. Sarah Titus

Sarah Titus believes “every mom should have the option to stay home, regardless of income.”

She shares tips about everything from cooking to DIY-ing and working at home through her Pinterest account — which has more than 100,000 followers!

“She doesn’t have a dedicated board to making money, but she has tons of great individual pins backed up by tons of experience,” Lindow says.

11. Seed Time

SeedTime is the new name of the popular blog Christian Personal Finance.

While the name has changed, the mission hasn’t.

Its Pinterest page has a whopping 175 boards covering a variety of topics like Christian living, budget meal planning and, of course, working from home.

12. Single Moms Income

Alexa Mason may no longer be a single mom, but she still shares plenty of ways to make and save money with her followers.

Her Business Ideas board, for example, has more than 400 pins for current — or wannabe — entrepreneurs.

13. The Penny Hoarder

What, you didn’t really think we’d make this whole list and forget ourselves, did you?

Our site is already chock full of posts about working from home, and Lindow has been working hard to ensure our Pinterest presence is just as prolific.

Two places to start? Check out our Make Money From Home board and our Make Extra Money group board!

14. The Work at Home Wife

The Work At Home Wife has 80 boards, divided into topics like “Home Business Marketing” and “New Direct Sales Companies.”

Bonus: If you sign up for her newsletter, she’ll send you a week-long work-from-home email course.

Our favorite might be Work From Home Ideas, which features gigs that “match every skill set, background experience and lifestyle.”

15. The Work at Home Woman

Holly Hanna is The Work at Home Woman, and her over 80 boards discuss everything from social media to coffee.

Her eponymous board is probably the most helpful.

“There is really something for everyone,” Lindow says. “And all the jobs have been verified to not be scams.”

16. Work at Home Mom Revolution

Viva the work-at-home revolution!

Many people visit Lisa Mills’ site for the work-from-home job leads she sends via email.

We like her Pinterest page because it’s all about business — and there’s nothing like her Work At Home Jobs board, which has more than 26,000 pins!
