You'll find excellent money saving advice in this book!
on September 6, 1999
You Can Afford To Stay Home With Your Kids is a book packed with no-nonsense advice for getting by on a smaller income - the idea being for one parent to stay home and manage the household while the other parent works full-time. It is written in a direct, non-apologetic, and entertaining style. You won't be bored while reading it, but you might get your feelings hurt just a little bit (when you're chastised for buying aubergine towels or some other frivolous item, for example). Which you won't mind if you're serious about converting from two incomes to one. Along with money-saving techniques (which are great even if you aren't planning on trying to stay home), you'll find some terrific tips on what to do with bored kids, neat birthday party ideas, even some recipes for novice cooks. I recommend this book for any mom or dad who is trying to stay home full or part-time - even if you think it would surely be impossible, You Can Afford To Stay Home With The Kids will give you hope. I read it with no such plan in mind - and I've been inspired to think about trying to stay home and see what it's all about!
