I am currently in the process of seeking a demotion at work so that I can spend more time at home with my children. It will definitely hurt as far as the financial loss but right now spending time with my children while they're young is more important to me. I'd like to know the easiest or most effective ways any of you ladies can offer, thinking outside the box, on saving money/slashing spending/stretching the family budget. I've already considered the obvious like eliminating trips out to eat, seeing movies in theaters, eliminating non-necessities from grocery shopping trips, etc.Answer Question
If you have cable, cancel it. Learn to love buying second hand (it really is more fun than shopping retail). Here is an article I wrote on saving money at the grocery store; I hope that you find it inspiring: http://www.ehow.com/how_5223945_save-even-money-grocery-store.html

if it all possible go down to one car! Saves insurance , gas, note, and maintenance. We have done it . We can more than afford a new one but we refuse to do it. It is not necessary and it saves money. Cut back on your cell plan.. Next time u take a look at if u have one look at all the taxes on it. Even on each line.
