We have been lucky in that when we decided I was going to stay home we also made a huge move at the same time. DH got a job on the other side of the state which has a much lower cost of living, we had paid off our cars, sold our condo... so we got a fresh start and could make our decisions on what our new income was rather than trying to manage our old payments with less than half the income. Obviously not everyone can do that but I'd say leave your options open to making some big changes if it is something you really want... or at least as Jen did try it for a few months to make sure it can work before you just quit.

Going fron two incomes to one was easy for us: I never really had an income.
