Nothing wrong with that. I've lived off far less. No questions here.

Coupon. Plan budget. I'm in the reserve that's our insurance tri care. Shop only during sales. We shop at once upon a child. Save for family vacations.

Id work if DH only made that much.  If it works for you, great.  That does not cover our bills, much less extras.

um I'm a SAHM also, living in the Maryland/ DC area. My DHs monthly income is about that, sometimes less depending on OT availability. We plan , we budget, we coupon, he bought this house at the best possible time in the worst condition and one bedroom less than it is now. He took $50k and remodeled top to bottom himself, added an extension with the master suite, dining room and laundry room. Added a 2 story garage, a fence, a 800 sq ft deck and pool. It seems impossible yes? But somehow we do it. We take vacations, trips, own 4 vehicles (a vintage mustang, a motorcycle, a new 4 door jeep and my trailblazer) Sure, because he's a FF we do good with tax return but we always make the most of it. We have savings. So that's why it does irritate me when I see people saying its impossible to stay at home to raise your kid because your husband doesn't make enough. Chances are he makes more than mine and we live a pretty awesome life and my kids have had me with them for 3 years now.
