Being a stay at home mom for the past 8 years, I have adjusted my lifestyle to a minimum. Whenever I want to buy something, like clothes or shoes or any non-essential stuff, I have to think not once or twice but more than that to be sure I really need the stuff before buying them. Living on one income has really been a challenge and there are days, when I really think of getting a stable job or investments that would bring in some money for the family expenses. I think about getting annuity quote or stocks which could at least help us earn more than what we are earning now. It is part of my goal this year to be able to invest in online stock trading. Hopefully by 3rd quarter of this year, I am already able to do just that.
But aside from that, I have been asking the Lord what else can I do to help out in the area of finances for the family. There has only been one answer and that has been writing. Though I don’t think I am a good writer, I thank Him for the writing opportunities that He has given me. Writing for some online sites have been a good way to practice my writing skills and earn at the same time. I just pray that may He continue to use my skills to bring insight and instruction to others.
Do you have any other suggestions or ideas as to how I can help out my family in the area of finances?
