      My mom is an accountant and she sees a lot of people who work their butts off to be dual income families and if they would actually LOOK at the numbers, they are bringing home less than $200 a month (if that). She had a client who the wife had a part time job and told her that they would have MORE money if she quit!

      These are things that people don’t think of:
      cost of clothes to do the job and dry cleaning (if needed)
      lunches out
      coffees, etc while at work
      gas to get to work
      lower tax bracket if they make less

      The client quit her job, got to stay at home with her kids (which she wanted anyway) and they made more money the next year because of it.

      The calculator is a great resource!
