Some of the people close to me knows there is nothing more I want than to be a Stay at Home Mom. I hate that I dont get to go to their school functions. I hate that my parents sometimes has to take my sick children to the doctor because I am unable to get off work. I hate that the laundry is never done. I hate that I feel like I am missing out on my children growing up. When I get home from work, I have to pick them up, fix supper. Then we do homework, eat, take baths and go to bed. I want to be a SAHM. BUT....
...As of this moment in our lives we are just not financially ready to be on a single income. So, my family has turned to Dave Ramsey. I know a few people who are now living Debt Free with using his program. This weekend when Presley Kate & I headed out with my Mom we stopped by the B&N & picked up his Total Money Makeover Book.
I am 7 chapters into this book and it makes total sense!!! One of the families that I know that is now debt free is emailing me her budget sheet as an example & I am excited to see how they do it. They too are a family of 5, now living on a single income. So who knows early next year all my dreams may come true.
If you are a SAHM mom, how are you doing it? What are some secrets? How did it go when you went from 2 to 1 income? Any tips, advice or suggestions, GREATLY appreciated.
