101 Ways to Ease the Financial Strain
Money-saving tips to help parents manage on a reduced income while staying at home with their baby
Three in five working mothers would stay at home with their children if they could afford to. But the prospect of managing on a reduced income can be daunting, especially at the point when they feel they need more money to cover the costs associated with a new baby.
Many books are aimed at budgeting and financial economies, but not at releasing and saving money while dealing with the extra expense of a new child. How to Afford Time Off With Your Baby identifies opportunities to economise at each and every stage, from pregnancy to starting school. It includes advice both on what parents actually do need and what they can do without, ideas for achieving more with less, creative solutions to baby-related spending and ways to generate a little extra cash.
In addition, this hugely practical guide provides checklists and Q&As, an extensive resource section and numerous tips to guide parents through this difficult financial period and help them get the most out of spending time with their young child.
