5 Tips for the Stay-at-Home Mom Transition

Cut Costs

For most households, having a stay-at-home parent means the income takes a hit – so you may need to find other places to cut costs. Whether you choose extreme couponing, thrift store shopping, bulk grocery shopping, or selling off some of the toys and books your kids don’t use any more, you can find plenty of ways to save a little bit and bring in a little extra. Other stay-at-home parents are also a great resource for free or cheap activities you can do in the community with your kids, from making use of their library membership to getting a group together to split the cost of music lessons or sports clinics.
