Question by luvmybaby: Should stay-at-home mom expect help with her bills from fiance? Or is that asking too much?
I am stay-at-home mom, NO income. My fiance (baby’s father) agrees that it is best for me to be at home with our baby. I have not worked in a year, and have gone through all I had saved. He pays all the bills, rent, food, etc. We have a nice house and comfortable life. I have some bills every month that until now i have managed to pay on my own (insurance, phone, some others). Right now my account is overdrawn, and I am very depressed about money. I can’t even go buy a candy bar on my own. Is it too much to ask him for help with my bills and some spending money (I am very frugal, not for expensive items.) He takes good care of us, and I am appreciative, but flat broke.
Answer by Gods_Gift_2_Women
Get a job, instead of making your fiance pay all the bills, women wanted equal equality so go out and get yourself a job to help bring home the bacon. You did state he is paying all of the bills, rent, food, etc, perhaps you should get a part-time job to pay for your novelties that you desire, I.e cell phone, internet, food, clothes, etc…

Question by labellemere: Let’s hear from the Frugal Moms and Dads-let’s talk grocery bills?
By cooking all meals, reusing lots, clipping coupons and hitting sales, I have been able to feed my family of 8 for as LOW as $ 110 up to $ 180 a week.
Tell me your family size and what your weekly grocery bill typically is and how you shop!
Answer by lbhietala
Wow, under $ 200/wk with eight to feed. You’re pretty good.
I jumped into scratch cooking in a big way. It turns out that a lot of that stuff that’s so easy to make because most of the cooking is done at some anonymous factory, isn’t all that good for you. So: fresh veggies, flour and sugar instead of cake mix, water instead of soda, etc. During the winter when prices for fresh veggies become unreasonable, it’s nothing to rely on canned foods: three cans and a meat and boom: done.
Basmati rice is a great complex carbohydrate that actually adds some flavor to the meal, unlike plain white rice. It’s more expensive, but worth it. And it’s still cheaper than some alternatives.
Most of the coupons I see are for ready-made foods, so I don’t touch them generally. Finding a fabulous price on something like that would be too tempting.
At my house we do what we call “planned-overs,” where we make way too much tonight with the specific intent of using it to start tomorrow’s dinner. So, spaghetti tonight starts with way too much sauce…but the leftover sauce becomes topping for homebrew pizzas tomorrow, and leftover sauce from that, PLUS leftover toppings from the pizzas all goes into chili the next night. They’re all different enough from each other that they don’t feel like leftovers at all.
Also, there’s the kids. Two teenage boys in the house can keep the fridge empty for you, believe it. But raising them from the beginning with no candy means never having to buy candy – but woe betide you if the fruit bowl runs empty. Fruit actually costs more than candy, but the kid is getting decent nutrition and if he stuffed himself on apples and oranges all day and has no room for dinner, well, I’m not going to be upset about that. If he were full of Snickers bars I’d be annoyed, but instead he says, “I liked the Gala apples this time, but the Fujis were a little mealy.” How many modern kids do you know that even know there’s more than just red and yellow apples?
Typical per-serving costs at my house run between $ .95 to $ 2.15. That $ 2.15 is a sumptuous spread that usually includes a steak, three fresh veggies and a drink – the kind of thing you shell out $ 8.00 or more for at a restaurant.
