How Can We Live Off One Income?

Typically it has been an issue for spouses leaving their jobs to go back to school or stay home with the kids, but now as the economy continues to tank, there is almost no one who isn't concerned about making their household run on only one income.

How do you turn your finances around to live off of one low income? Or how do you make money from home?" -- jessica0608
