  • I think too many SAHM's put they do laundry 40 hours a week. I have done the SAHM calculator and my salary was much lower and I actually keep my home spotless, cook from scratch and do everything. I only do laundry 7 hours in a week. I spend at most 8-10 hours in a week cooking. I think if women were honest on the calculator they would be like me and the actual work time would be 25-30 hours a week with a salary of 40k. I am home but I don't clean all day and since most of the moms on here are on Cafemom all day they are not working that much either. I love being a mom and am not so insecure I need to inflate my value to my family. I am valuable and you cannot put a price on it.
