Can a stay at home mom really provide for the family with out an "outside" job???
This is a question I have suffered with trying to answer for years!! I have always been determined to stay at home with my kids and raise them myself. I have always been against paying someone else to raise my kids while I work and miss all of their "first" and them growing up. For some reason I have not been able thus far to find the perfect solution and feel like I have been able to help supplement the income and still be able to be a full time mom. Maybe I don't have my priorities in line. Maybe it just wasn't meant to be. But I am a person that believes if you want something bad enough it was meant to be you just have to figure out how to make it happen and trust that it will happen. So far every time I think I have it figured out I always end up taking a small part time job to "make some extra money". Well this time I am gonna try a different approach. I have decided that I am going to put all of these money saving tips I have been reading about and all of these life organizing ideas into play and see how that helps.... I plan to keep all of my trial and errors and my progress posted here so that hopefully someone that is struggling with the same problems can be helped and/or inspired by posts. Please feel free to post your suggestions, advice, and support.
