I got an email from a reader earlier this week and it got me thinking of the cost of working and how often times it makes sense to be a stay at home mom rather than work. I know this isn’t the case for everyone but Stay a Stay at Home Mom has a great article in which you can really breakdown all your costs to get the TRUE cost of working amount to decide if you should become a stay at home mom.
Let’s face it: it can be difficult to stay a stay at home mom and live off of one-income in a two-income society. Add to that the extra expenses that a new baby brings to the family, and it can be very tempting to have mom get a job for the extra income. After all, it seems hard to find ways to cut expenses; wouldn’t it just be easier to make more money?
