The big draw of heading to a job outside of the home is an added income.
One of the reasons that I enjoy being a SAHW is that it saves me money.
No wardrobe requirements.
No need for frequent fast food pick-ups because I am just too tired to cook.
No need for fast food because there just was no time to pack a lunch.
Time to find and use coupons.
Time to plan healthy meals - saves on doctor bills and medicines.
Time to research health concerns - again saves on doctor trips.
Time to research online deals before making big purchases.
For years, we saved because we only had one car.
We save money on home repairs and upkeep that I have time to do.
