Re: What Lengths Have You/Would You Go To To Stay Home?
We've always planned for me to stay home. For us it was the only lifestyle we would want. So yes, we lived in a really really crappy apartment for a while, then moved halfway across the country to a cheaper area (nowhere near family) to be able to live in a little nicer place and still live on only DHs income. Most people would still consider our house (duplex, actually) too small and not very nice. I don't care though, it's what we can afford on one income and me working full time is not something we ever want to do. We live very thriftily and for a while had only one car. We'd do almost anything for me to be a SAHM. (I am working towards getting my doula certification, but that's because I want to do it and it will be very very very part time. More like a hobby for me.)
