I am due to go back to work at the end of January. I am currently a teachers aide and we obviously dont make that much. I calculated and half my paycheck would be going towards daycare. Also my son gets off early out of school and there is no one to watch him . I dont I would be able to get off early even if I asked. I am so lost right now. I am supposed to be starting school at our local community college but is that honestly going to get me to where I need to be?? UHHHHH I feel lost. Basically I can try to stay home with my kids and take night classes or go back to work and lose half my earnings (about 900 a month on a good month with no holidays) SOMEBODY HELP lolAnswer Question

I used the second income calculator and figured that my working would COST us 7k a year... between pushing us into a higher tax bracket, gas, daycare for two kids, lunches, etc... depressing. I like working but I decided it wasn't worth it.
Its a neat tool. Ultimately you have to decide what works for your family. Consider other things too - are you the provider for benefits? Healthcare from your job? Would you be HAPPY being home? How does your spouse feel about it? Etc.

It's a personal choice. Some people prefer to have a job outside the home, but a home based job is best for others. I would suggest you try it at home for a while and see if you can make it work financially. http://www.freewebs.com/free2workathome/ is my website you should check out the ways I make money at home (free ones)

Would you like to receive a check for $800 next month? Would you like to make your desire to work from home a reality? I did it and you can too. If you are serious about having a career that allows you to spend more time, whether it is, family, spiritual, recreation, traveling, etc... you can have it. You will love the support and training you receive and enjoy sharing this success with others. Visit my site and Start LOVING what YOU do too! http://www.abetteru.2freedom.com/
