    Doh Mother of 3, just quit my salary job to be a SAHM - - YIKES!

    Hi all!

    My name is Rebecca and I just gave notice on my salary career - which brings in 60% of our family income - to stay at home with our three boys! I am a little bit of a nervous wreck, but I have faith that with wonderful sites like this one, we can make it just fine.

    Top three items that I am going to learn to live without -
    1. Starbucks skinny caramel macchiatos - I have at least one per working day!
    2. Expensive hair cuts and highlights - any great ideas for DIY at home?
    3. Mindless spending! I buy whatever I want whenever I want it for the most part.

    I hope this will be an interesting journey in converting to a more frugal lifestyle!
    We will see how it goes!

    I want to encourage you Rebecca to go for it. I did the same when my children were in elementary school. Everything worked out and I had a great time learning how to DIY and saving money.

    Rebecca, I recently did the same thing. It was the best thing I could have done! You will find ways to save money especially on this site. We make most meals and I need to concentrate on managing out grocery budget a little more. I think this site has so many good ideas! I've made several of the cleaners and some of the food already! Good luck!
