I've left my abusive
DH, I've gotten myself a job, I've started finalizing the divorce process. He didn't let me work for years, and he made decent money, was very demanding with what I cooked for him and how things were done. I start work Monday, the kids and I move into our new place in a few weeks - staying with my parents for now, it's not available quite yet. Money is going to be VERY tight.... and time management and stuff.... I'm getting a little overwhelmed. They are both young, one is 6 one is 2. I'm used to doing stuff during the day.... prepping dinner, etc (granted they were not simple meals), doing laundry during the day, etc. Can any of you wonderful working ladies give me any advice on time management? Kid friendly cheap recipes? Stuff I can make in advance/ bulk? Ways to save money? Food I can take to work? Quick breakfasts all around? Anything like that. I'll get home around 530pm with them.... makes me nervous getting all this done.
Also, trying to lose 30 lbs... so I don't want to eat junk all the time, but of course.... they always want mac n cheese!
Going anon for this one for now....
ETA: I do have a crock pot... probably should have put that in my original post!
