Since my son arrived I’ve spent little to no time searching for bargains. My sleep schedule is still pretty wacky so I’m doing my best just to keep things afloat. I also LOVE being with him and don’t want to waste time driving around town to save a dollar or two. The fact that it’s cold and flu season gives me one more excuse to not venture out of the house. After all, it doesn’t make any sense to purposefully expose him to the sick folks filling their prescription at CVS or Rite Aid. Maybe I’ll change my thinking once the warm weather of spring rolls around.

From reading your blog, I know that you are a very clever, money-savvy lady. You have the ability to live on one income. Stay at home. You will find the means. Go to the library and check out "The Tightwad Gazette" and read how Amy did it. Going back to work will only make your life a rat race. Lynda

I have to say for me the experience has been the exact opposite. I quit my job when my daughter was born in August and have been staying home with her full time. Since we no longer have my income, I've made it a focus to save money any way I can (even when sleep deprived). I tend to make a list once a week of the places I want to hit and then leave the baby home with my husband. It's a great way for me to get out of the house and him to get some bonding time with our daughter.
