Money Saving Tips


money saving tips a growing listI have been an at home mom since month 9 of my marriage (yep honeymoon baby). From the day those two lines appeared on that pregnancy test I knew I wanted to stay home with my children until they left the nest. I have always brought in a bit of cash by selling things we no longer needed or doing some other side business but the number one way I have added to our family financially so that I could stay home was stretching every penny of my husband’s nursing wage to the maximum.
