Quoting min.:" I have some questions for you. This is my goal in life and I'd like to know more about how it works for ... [snip!] ... have? Do you buy most things from second hand stores? Do you wish you were a working mom? Do you get government support? TIA."
What does your husband/boyfriend do for a living?
He's a coal miner (night shift)
Did you have to alter your budget by getting rid of cable or other extras?
Nope. We actually both had two jobs before DD was born & he got hired there. He got hired the day she came home, & I was able to stay home with her. He makes more money now than both of us were bringing in then. So technically, we have more extras. But we don't have cable, just netflix, simply because it's pointless for us to have.
How many vehicles do you have?
We own a Jeep & a Grand Prix. Looking into getting a new car & selling the Grand Prix & keeping the jeep as a work car.
Do you buy most things from second hand stores?
No, we just usually go to Wal-mart for groceries, cleaning supplies, etc.
Do you wish you were a working mom?
No. I love being a SAHM. It's what I was meant to do.
Do you get government support?
