On 60 minutes last night they had a story of how more and more women were opting to quite work and become 50's housewives.
As a mother who made the decision to quite work and stay at home to raise my children this did not seem like such a big deal.
What is the big deal is that, these women were saying that since the husband "worked" all day it was here responsibility to look after him and pamper him as he paid all the bills.
This is where I got upset. I do look after my husband, he works hard and is a good provider for our family and he always has been. But! I work very hard in the home too.
As for him paying all the bills, yes he earns the money but I budget and make a little go a long way.
Its the homemaker that can make or break a budget, and no matter how much or little money you have, even if you spend just $10.00 more than you have coming in you will be in big trouble at the end of the year.
That $10.00 a week you send on credit will add up to over $500.00 a year in debt!
So for all the women, and men, who stay at home think of your budgeting skills as money saved is money earned.
So how much can you earn this week.
