What Lengths Have You/Would You Go To To Stay Home?

I WOH because I "have to." We bought a house when I was pregnant with our first child with the idea that I would always want to work. We need my salary in order to pay all of our bills, namely our largest bill, the mortgage.

I didn't think I'd have the desire to stay home, but sometimes I wish I could. I don't see us selling the house and moving into a cheaper place just so that I can stay home, though. In fact, moving into a cheaper place would only save us a couple hundred dollars and wouldn't be enough.

I'm not really venting or looking for advice, but I know lots of moms on here (and a few dads) stay home, even with very small incomes. I'm curious to what lengths you went to to stay home.
