A couple of other things that you might want to think about:


I don't know what you currently do but don't forget to factor in how much you currently spend on your wardrobe for work, uniforms or suits, etc. As well as any work related expenses like gas, extra wear and tear on your vehicle. Those things can get pretty expensive and you can add that to what you would be saving.


I watch Jon and Kate +8 and one thing that she said that I liked was that since she doesn't work anymore she feels her job is to save money and make Jon's paycheck stretch as far

You are absolutely right, and I am obviously in the wrong place.

"I know that cost of living and spouses salary make a big impact on whether or not someone can afford to stay home, but I've also been told by women driving lexuses and living in homes decorated by Pottery Barn that they "wished" they could stay home."

And?` Maybe they work for health care, maybe they work for retirement and college and make more than they need for that so they spend in on other things, maybe they were just being sociable and didn't want to get raked over the coals for admitting they work because they like it.

There are so many things you can do to save money (and even make extra cash) being a SAHM.

I have been a SAHM for almost 9 years.
