  • Staying Home with the Kids

    Every one of my friends who has become a parent has either decided to stay home with the kids or at least thought about whether they could afford to do so. Here’s an article that considers three ways of staying home: (1) quit work completely, (2) work part-time, or (3) free-lance from home. If you’re thinking about staying at home, I highly recommend Miserly Moms, a fantastic book that I’ve previously mentioned. The author, Jonni McCoy, discusses how you might not be making as much as you think you are (thereby reducing the impact of the loss of your income), as well as ways to reduce your spending.
