From the Author - - Have you ever considered tossing your Daytimer and staying home full time? We thought about it for years and, finally, we each took the leap from two incomes to one. We were certain that we would miss all the extra money, but in fact, we didn't. Once we got home it became clear that most of that second income was eaten up by the cost of working. And this included not only daycare, traveling expense, but the small hidden costs such as, lunches out, convenience foods, and take-out meals. We were shocked to realize that all the while we had been slaving away at our jobs, we were only adding a small dollar amount to the family budget.

I am having a very relaxing morning. It is so quiet and peaceful in the house. DH is at work, DS#2 is at work, and DS#3 is at accelerated summer school. So, I am home alone. I love summer. Otherwise, I would be at work too.
Today our family is saving by:
- hanging laundry to dry
- washing what few dishes we have dirty by hand....not enough to run the dishwasher
- signing up for Kraft First Taste where you can try new products from Kraft.
- The four of us will be working the baseball fields tonight - umpiring, scorekeeping, and concession stand which pays us cash.
- Swimming in our pool for free exercise and recreation
I hope you all have a frugal day as well! I would love to hear about your frugal day. Just post a comment.
