As my maternity leave ended and we crunched our numbers, it became clear to my husband and I that we’d be saving more by me NOT returning to work outside the home . But being a Stay-at-Home-Mom wasn’t a financial option for us, so for a number of years I became a Save-at-Home-Mom: clipping coupons, changing my shopping routines to become more savvy, and taking advantage of being able to cook & clean during off-peak hydro hours. I (happily) spent a great deal of time and energy doing what I could to save a great deal of money and resources to help support our family. I have since transitioned into a Work-from-Home-Mom and still use the same time and money saving hacks so that I can maintain a healthy work-family time balance. I hope that this blog will provide some insight and inspiration to other families who are looking for ways to Save-at-Home!
