Working single mom thrifty ideas

I am looking for some advice and ideas about being thrifty and getting things for and done for less. I work 45-60 hours a week, have a 10.5 month old and a baby on the way so efficiency is also important but the $ savings would be huge as a single income household. Thank you.

What areas are you concerned about? Your post is a little vague. I am a parent that works with the family conservancy and they have us pick two areas of the most need and make goals for those. As a parent, especially a single parent, family needs can be overwhelming. For saving money, there is couponing, mass cooking, or finding ways to stretch items. If you are crafty, you can join Pinterest and find ideas on how to make cleaners yourself, clothing, or gifts. I also found a group on Facebook in my area that is a swap and sell. I have bought countless things on there for my kids for $1 or $5. I completely understand working 60 hours a week. I did it when I had my daughter. Feel free to PM me as well.
