I’ve been debating for some time now on just how I can become a WAHM so that I can stay home with baby girl. Never mind staying home with no income and living off my husband. That’s not feasible at this point. But, it also seems nearly impossible to be able to find steady work that I can do from home.
I mean, I don’t want to relive my college days and eat
every day. (Image via jtinkster’s flickr page)
I’ve attempted the surveys and other get paid sites, but though it makes for some nice extra cash, I can’t have my family depending on it. So, what’s a mom to do?
Well, here are 6 tips for surviving on just one income. I think they are useful, but at the same time, pretty common sense. Plus, I’m not so sure we can nix the cable – I need at least standard. Call me spoiled, but I need to watch more than just talk shows and soaps.
- Cut your grocery bill.
- Consolidate to one credit card with a low interest rate.
- Barter with other families.
- Pull the plug on cable.
- Don’t move.
- Save up cash to make any big purchases..
I’m sure you moms out there that stay home have some more (and better?) tips.
