Saving Money While Being a Stay at Home Mom
Back in 2012 when I had my first son Eli we as a new little family of 3 decided I was going to be a stay at home mom. This was a huge financial and time commitment for us. I would be home full time and most my time and energy was going to our new little guy. Which was always a dream of mine. I felt so blessed to be able to have a husband who could support me in this dream both mentally and financially. That all sounds fun and easy but to be completely honest this was a huge shift and was both mentally and financially very hard. In what felt like overnight we cut our income in half. I dealt with a lot of guilt that I wasn’t pulling my weight and I never felt comfortable enough to buy myself anything because I felt so unworthy. But over time and lots of conversation with my husband I started to feel better about it. Finances were one of the hardest parts about being a stay at home mom for me. I worked hard at shopping sales and buying only what we needed. I would clip coupons and shop clearance and sale items only. Does anyone know how much work that is!? I have now been doing this as habit and it comes a little easier to me now (probably because I don’t “need” to as much now) but recently I was introduced to this app called Skout Deals. GUYS! This app makes it so much easier to plan my shopping trips. This app allows me to find the best deals and clearance prices at a large number of different stores. Ranging from different categories as baby, grocery, clothing and even travel I search through this app and find all sorts of deals that allows me to save money and finally feel like I’m pulling a little bit of weight in the money department.
I am a mommy of 2 little boys and a wife of 1 amazing husband! I love natural living and essential oils. Follow my journey here while I navigate life and make fun stuff with Oils!
