The truth is that quite often, we use the excuse of things being “too expensive” without really thinking too much about it to argue against stay at home parenting, but when you really start adding up the factors, there’s much more value there than you think. In the above example, the stay at home parent is effectively saving the household $560 a week. That’s the equivalent of a $29,000 a year job, not much less than my wife’s current salary, and I feel the numbers used in the calculation are conservative.

I love your blog, and very often my days at work go like this…blah blah blabbity blah…oh, a new post at the Smackdown – Yessss. Now get out of my cube so I can read this work-related (wink wink) blog about cool stuff. LOVE. So I’m a mom to a pretty terrific 8 mo. old little man with the chubbiest and mos delectable knees, feet, fingers, elbows, and eyelashes. Good lord, the eyelashes. Seriously…somedays I am tempted to try out some mascara, but no. That’d be wrong, right?. Anyways, I love that you’re making the switch to cloth diapers, mostly because it’s something I’m pretty curious about but am nervous to try. At the risk of sounding like an idiot, how exactly does the cloth diapering thing work? Is it uuber messy? Do they really get clean in the wash? I’m so curious but hesitant to make the investment without hearing firsthand.
You might find that the emotional and practical benefits are worth the sacrifices. If you have time to prepare to be a SAHM you can work toward getting out of debt and start living on one income while you still have two. Bank your income to use as an emergency fund. If you find yourself thrust quickly into making this decision, check out my book So, You’re Broke?: 18 Drama-Free Steps To A Richer Life to learn practical ways to not only survive, but thrive on one income.
I opted to go with pocket-style diapers. (There are 243,793,450,138 different styles and options and I won’t lie, I got so confused by all the lingo on the cloth diapering sites that I gave up and emailed bloggers who use cloth for recommendations.) Pocket-style cloth diapers really resemble disposables — there’s a cute outer shell/pant thing that you stuff uber-absorbent inserts into. They fasten with snaps or velcro or snaps AND velcro and are crazy adjustable — you’ll notice the weight limits tend to run from 15 to 35 pounds or so. (To give you an idea of that range: Ezra weighed 15 pounds by four months, while Noah currently weighs around 33 pounds at three-and-a-half. So they wear the same size. Glorious.) (Noah, despite being on the high end of the weight range, is so skinny that he still isn’t on the loosest snap setting on a medium Fuzzi Bunz, that technically says it’s for 15-30 pounds.)

Give yourself a break: Even the most ardent of cloth diaper users find that there are several circumstances when they switch to disposables.  Traveling can be a real hassle with heavy, wet, soiled cloth diapers.  And there will be some babysitters or other caretakers who are less keen on the idea of the cloth diapers. So, go ahead and take the weekend away or the date night: it’s more important that you take good care of yourself (so you can be a better parent) than that you have a perfect cloth diapering record!
Hi Valerie, There are many different side hustles to choose from. If you have a specific interest in one and there is not already information to help you get started on the site, I can create it so please let us know. As far as scams go, this post will tell you about a few you need to watch out for: https://singlemomsincome.com/top-work-at-home-scams/
I quickly discovered that being a full-time cloth diaperer and being a full-time employee didn't really conflict at all like the predecessors before me had ominously warned; the process just taught me better time-mangement skills.  I still had to do a load of CD-only laundry once every three days or so, and with the assistance of pail liners and the wet bags I sent with my daughter to daycare, it wasn't like I had piles of dirty diapers stinking up my house or diaper bag.  On the days it was time to do laundry, my schedule wasn't altered much.  I'd just throw everything into the washer with a scoop of Tiny Bubbles as soon as I'd get home from work, run the laundry, make dinner, and spend some quality time with the family before my daughter's bedtime.  Then, as my husband would begin getting my daughter ready for bed, I'd quickly throw the wet diapers in the dryer, hang the diaper shells and covers on the clothesline my hubby installed in our laundry closet, and be ready in time for a few stories and our nightly nursing session.  Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that continuing to breast feed is also manageable for the full-time working mother?  That's another story I suppose.
Allow me to be entirely hypocritical here. I actually really dislike the full-day kindergarten program that has recently been introduced in my province, and which is available in various versions in most parts of Canada. Yet even though I’m not a fan, it’s true that this program is popular with working parents and certainly does help to make their lives easier.

Adelaide, I can tell you right now that you are not incompetent! You used the word “well” and “too” correctly. As an employer, I can’t even count how many applications I’ve filed to the back because of poor grammar! (some of you might be thinking why is she on this site if she has her own business… I don’t want to be at my business, I want to be able to pick up my girls from school!) I market for an online store by referring shoppers, but I can’t replace my income yet. Maybe when my student loans are paid! I’m making that my goal!

I cannot thank you enough for the info you provided! I went back to work before my son turned 4. Now he’s 12 & I feel like I’ve missed out on so many summers & just time together because I’m working 5 days a week. I plan to take a serious look at the opportunities you listed and hopefully I can find a way to stay home and still earn an income. Plus, I drive 60 miles a day, saving almost $300 a month in gas alone would go a long way! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
