I am a SAHM of two awesome children, my daughter is 3 years and my son is 7 mos. My husband is in the construction field was laid off of work for 10 months. We got way behind on all of our bills as you can imagine. When we did our taxes we got caught up on everything but we are still barely making it. He did get a job about 6 weeks ago but he is getting paid less then what we were used to. We are very frugal about spending $ and are living paycheck to paycheck. No I do not go out and spend $ when I feel like it. There is nothing to spend and I don't believe in putting it on credit cards unless it is a absolute need!!! So my question is do you believe staying at home is a luxury? I know I could go and get a job and we could live more "comfortably" but I don't want to leave my children just for the money. I also don't want to feel like I can't enjoy my life because we can't pay our bills. I feel like a spend half the day worrying about money and the lack of it! What is your take?
