This collection of links is not just for Stay at Home Moms, but it is for all of us who need some inspiration to continue living frugally. Of course, I think SAHMs might need some extra encouragement so that is why I’ve gathered this specific list of articles to share today. That, and I am a new SAHM too.
The Humbled Homemaker shared Staying at Home with your kids when you can Barely Afford It. Please note that she is talking about the monetary implications with this article. I also appreciated how she shared that she utilizes her skills to earn supplemental income, while still staying at home with her children. My Mom is an organist who did just this.
Katie listed 101 Ways to Save $1.00 a Day. I liked this article because there are so many simple ideas on this list, but each and every dollar adds up. We can all gather some ideas from this list!
The Super Coupon Lady shared her Top 10 Money Saving Tips for Stay at Home Moms. I especially liked her reminders to shop used and barter for babysitting. You can be sure I’ll be doing that when our baby arrives!
Crystal at Money Saving Mom shared her advice when a reader asked Is it possible for us to live on $460 a week? Read her advice as well as many of the comments for encouragement on living with a tight budget.
Finally, Kimberlee shared a wonderful in-depth series about Living on Less than $28,000 a Year. She has 29 different articles in this series so there is plenty to ponder. If you only read one of these links I shared, make it this one!
What do you think? Do you have any encouragement for SAHMs? Are you one yourself or have you been? Feel free to add your advice in the comments below!
