I have worked full time since I was 16 years old, so it was a weird change to go part time duty because of a partial bed rest order from the doctor. How weird is it to go from full time to part time, and now back to full time being a mom.
Having a regular paycheck is a wonderful thing. But what happens when that regular paycheck is gone? Things have become tight in our family budget. No longer are we going out to eat every weekend or traveling like we used to. But even though that 2nd income is gone we can still have fun.
When going from a large scale weekend down to a small you can simplify your outing and stick close to home. Save money and have a picnic in the front yard instead of going out, this has been so much better for our family. We have saved over $100 so far by just staying home and eating, plus watching our 3 year run and catch bubbles is hilarious.
When money is tight stick close to home, its so much more fun to just hang out and relax.
