You Can be a Stay at Home Mom on One Income ebook

You can be a stay at home mom on one income- Becky Mansfield




Here is how this book came to be: 

1- I have been a stay at home mom for 7 years.   (I have a BS in elementary education with a minor in writing and I am a certified play therapist… which is why I write about parenting and kids, for the most part.  I have studied children for over 15 years and I am happy to share everything that I know with you.)

2- I have taken several classes on managing finances, because I am very interested in money management.

3- My husband is an economics major and has worked in the finance field for over 10 years.

4- My Dad has a MBA in Business & Finance and shares many tips with us.

5- My brother is finishing his PhD in Math & Education and keeps us up to date with the newest and latest findings.

6- My Mom (a nurse) has taught me a ton about shopping right!


All of these things combined have made it possible for me to share this with you.   I used to have a webpage devoted to just this… saving money.  I had it for several years, but do not use it anymore (it was before “blogs” were even a thing!)

I have combined all of the ideas from that website, plus all of the new tips & ideas that I have, into one ebook for you.   I have interviewed several people for more advice, as well.


It is the hope of many parents to stay home with their children or simply to have more money to spend on your family and to live financially stress-free, working or not. 
Maybe you just want to start saving now, in hopes of working less in the future.  You could just be looking for ways to supplement your income.  This book will help you with all of these goals.

You will learn so many tips, ideas & secrets to help you save more money & live easier.  The stress of money can be a big one if you let it, so just learn to take control of your money.  Spend less & save more, the easy way!

    Read the book and loved it! Found lots of great tips–especially like your couponing strategy. Included a short review and link to it on my recent article on money-saving tips on Wondermom Wannabe.

    Greta idea. But one thing no one talks about is living within your means. People don’t consider wants vs needs during a purchase decision. “I WANT the 84″ tv but I only need the 24″ tv. But how many bags of ramen noodles do I need to eat to offset the cost?”

    Kids are not cheap (I’m a SAHD for 5 yo twins). We made the conscious decision that I would stay at home and we would have to make sacrifices to our lifestyle (no new cars, fancy vacations, expensive cell phones, etc.). You don’t need all of life’s bells and whistles to raise your kids properly, they are actually better off without them.

    I’m thinking of purchasing your book. My husband became a SAHD this year (not by choice), and he is loving it. I am a teacher (so I don’t make much). However, I’m not sure we can even do it on my salary alone (about $44000). I am just wondering how much your husband makes? I realize this is a personal question, but this book will only be use if it can help us live on only my salary…Thanks. Sounds like a great book.


  1. Thank you- I just got this book and it has been so helpful! I would never have thought of some of those tips! I love your blog & I’m so grateful for this book. Thank you, again, Ms. Becky!
