This is really a question for anyone who has been a SAHM going to a working mom. My kids are 2 1/2 and 2 monts. I haven't worked since Feb. Well lets just say that DHs hours got cut back at work, and he can't find another job. So I have been looking. I don't want to go to work, but we are about to lose our apartment and we are just flat broke. We have cut back on EVERYTHING to try to save money, and its just no hope.
How do I deal with going back to be a working mom again?

You can have a family day care in your apartment. I have done that in the past. I got certified in infant and child first aid and CPR and got my food handlers card, took the class to get my certification and within a couple of weeks I had families that I worked with and children that I adored. It is worth looking into. The daycare agency had toys and small furniture for us to borrow and I got reimbursed for all the day care meals. I did that for many years till hubby got a better job and we had to move. Great providers are always in demand.

The first thing to do is to NOT feel guilty. Don't feel bad if you need to go out and help supplement income for your family. Second, There are maybe things you could do to cut back at home that you don't even know about. Do you clip coupons? Shop ads? Do random things that are un-necessary?
One thing I do from home to earn some extra income is being an agent for kgb_. You may have seen the commercials on tv. Go here and see if you like it.... http://542542.com/agent . I don't get credit for you signing up or trying. There is an assessment test you must pass, but you can take it as many times as needed. You can make an income of around $50 up to several hundred a month. You are paid once per month to your bank account, and yes, I have been paid several times. You can truly make as much as you want, you just have to actually put the time and work.
