How to Submit Craft Articles and Get Paid

Are you a frugal crafter or DIYer? Do you decorate your home on a budget? Are you good at recycling ordinary household items into creative gifts? Would you like to share your crafty ideas with our 60,000 plus readers? If so, we'd love to work with you!

You do not have to be a professional writer to submit a craft article, however, please review our submission guidelines to help ensure your article is ready for publication. (Please note: Articles previously published on the Internet cannot be accepted for this feature. We're looking for fresh ideas and first time publishing rights for 90 days.)


Frugal crafts, garden crafts, DIY home projects, homemade gifts, homemade Christmas ornaments, holiday decorating, home decorating on a budget, fun crafts for kids, homemade Halloween costumes, etc. All submissions that are frugal and crafty will be considered for publication.


Although we cannot offer cash payments at this time, we can offer a link back to your favorite personal craft site, including Etsy, or social media account. And of course, a huge THANK YOU! :o)


Articles should be submitted in plain text by either typing or copy and pasting them into the body of an email, along with a photo of your craft. Do not send your article as an attachment, we do not open them for security reasons. Proof-read and spell-check your work one more time before submitting (we will edit your article for spelling, grammar and punctuation if needed).

Please include the following information with your submission...

* Title of Craft or Gift Project

* Your First and Last Name

* Photo of Finished Project (1-5 photos as needed)

* Introduction/Description of Project (first paragraph) 

* A List of Items Needed to Make Project

* Detailed Steps for Making Project

All article submissions will be reviewed by the editor and considered for publication in an upcoming issue of Living a Better Life, and on the website, BetterBudgeting.org. Crafters will be notified by e-mail if selected for publication. If you need more information regarding your submission please contact the editor at any time.


Published articles will include crafter's name under the title along with the copyright date and repeated name at the bottom of the article along with link to crafter's personal website.


As the original author of your article you will retain the copyrights and are free to offer it as a reprint in other publishing venues after 90 days. Please include a note "First published at BetterBudgeting.org" when possible. This will help other craft writers learn about our submission opportunities and budgeting families to find financial help through our website if needed.

By submitting an article to BetterBudgeting.org, you are verifying it is your work and you are the legal copyright owner of such work, and will hold us harmless of any and all copyright disputes or actions which may result because of any copyright infringement issues. (In other words, PLEASE do NOT submit articles simply copied from another source. Thank you! :o)
