You Can Stay Home with Your Kids!: 100 Tips, Tricks, and Ways to Make It Work on a Budget is a guide to saving money by Erin Odom, author of The Humbled Homemaker blog.
This book contains tips and tricks for living on a tight budget in order to have more time to be at home. The author states: "God made you to be your children's mother because He knew you were the perfect mom for them...Remember your 'why'."
You Can Stay Home with Your Kids is for moms who want to stay at home with their kids, or for anyone who just wants to learn how to save more money. It is an especially helpful book for homeschool moms and new moms who want to leave the workforce.
This book has practical tips for all areas of your life: Curb spending Eat well on a budget DIY household products Entertain your family without spending a fortune Shop secondhand and sales Provide for healthcare needs Hunt houses and vehicles Create more income The short chapters are broken down into bite-size readings with actions steps. The great thing about the format of the book is that you can scan through it and choose the tips that will offer the most help. I find the section on eating well on a budget to be the most helpful, as this is often the area that takes the biggest toll on a family's budget.
You Can Stay Home with Your Kids is inspiring, and though some of the information isn't new, there are tons of tips and ideas. It's nice to have them all in one compact volume like this in a format worthy of a gift book.
