    I was privileged to receive an advance-copy of the ebook version of this book. It contains practical, bite-sized ideas of how to make ends meet if it truly is your desire to stay home with your kids but you aren’t sure how it could possibly work. I found myself nodding along over and over again as I came across so many ideas that I already put into practice in my own home. Yet with 100 tips and tricks included in the book, I was also inspired t...

    You Can Stay Home with Your Kids expands on some of the ideas in Erin’s first book, More Than Just Making It. This is a well-organized book with 100 or more actionable ideas for saving or making money. There are eight sections in the book: Curb Spending; Eat Well on a Budget; DIY Household; Entertainment; Shop Secondhand; Health; Houses and Vehicles; and Create More Income. Chances are that if you implement even one of these ideas, you will mor...

    How I wish I had a copy of You Can Stay Home With Your Kids when my three were little. Author Erin Odom is never bossy. She isn't saying that staying home with your kids is the only way. However, if you are a mom who would love to stay home but don't know if it is a real possibility, give this book a shot. Erin will gently encourage you to look at your home and expenses in a slightly different and creative way that could very well make all the di...

    I really enjoyed this gift book from Erin Odum, who also writes The Humbled Homemaker Blog. I have already read her "More Than Just Making It" book on financial freedom, and it was a true blessing to me. This book is much in the same vein, but different in the way it is presented. Beautifully done up as a gift book, "You Can Stay Home With Your Kids" offers practical ways you can eliminate extra spending, tighten your belt and afford to be a stay...

    This is a sweet and encouraging book that I honestly think can apply to all people, not just stay-at-Home-moms. Practical tips and tricks that anyone can and should apply to their lives. There were quite a few tips that I hadn’t thought of before, especially in the saving on healthcare chapter, and who doesn’t need to save on healthcare these days? I like Erin’s non-judgmental way of writing that meets you where you’re at and encourages y...

    Not JUST for Stay at Home Moms! This book is for EVERYONE! I started reading this book thinking it would be more along the lines of a guide for Stay at Home moms in a way.

I try to be fiscally responsible as well as environmentally responsible. This book served as a great reminder of how we can liv...

    This adorable little book is packed full of advice on ways to save money and increase income! While it is geared towards moms that want to be able to afford to stay home with their kids, it is also great for anyone just trying to save money to pay off debt or reach their goals. I have read tons of books about making your money stretch, but this book still gave me new ideas to try out!

    Reading this book was like sitting down with an old friend and a warm cup of tea. Erin provides hope with common-sense steps that you can put into practice right away. I especially love how her “bite-sized” gems of information are divided into easily accessible categories. Erin makes it so easy to go back and review sections you specifically want to brush up on or share with your spouse. I was delighted to discover many home making “secrets...

    As a virtual friend of Erin, I got to read this book before it was released. It is so full of ideas on how you can save money so you can stay home with your children!

    You Can Stay Home With Your Kids! By Erin Odom is a new book that releases on April 10th. I was able to read it as part of the launch team. It was a timely read for me since I am a new stay at home mom and living on one income. It was written in small chapters with practical advice to save money. I personally already used most of her tips. I would recommend it for anyone that is interested in ways to cut costs or to save money, not just couples w...

    When I first wanted to stay home with my son 3 years ago, my husband told me to find a way to make it work financially.

The awesome thing about this book is that these tips and tricks - and many more! - are all compiled in this beautiful, concise, and easy to read book! This was a much-need...

    I received a free copy of "You Can Stay Home With Your Kids" for free in exchange for my honest review. If you like practical books, this one is for you. It's short, sweet, and to the point. It's a very easy read with a lot of money-saving tips. If you're already a pretty frugal person, like I consider myself to be, a lot of the tips you probably already do or have seen on money-saving blogs or Pinterest searches, but there are a couple new-to-me...

    Let me start by saying, You Can Stay Home with Your Kids is written for aspiring stay at home moms, but it is a valuable tool for ANYONE wanting to save money and be a better steward of financial resources.

    I absolutely love "You Can Stay Home with Your Kids"! I live in one of the highest cost-of-living areas in the entire US, so I know just how difficult it is to be a stay-at-home mom in an area that almost requires a 2-person income. Erin's book is chalk full of ideas to implement to make staying at home easier. Not only does she give small, actionable ideas throughout the book, but even just reading through it is bound to inspire you to come up w...

    Perfect book for ANY mom looking for money saving tips! It's important to know that this is not a novel; it's a book full of tips AND action steps for each tip, which I LOVE!

    What I love about this book is that it gives practical, realistic advice and tips for moms who want to stay home with their children. Everything from recipes for homemade, natural cleaners to healthcare options, this book is full of helpful information. What this book is not is how to earn a full-time income while staying home. The last chapter is about earning more income, but the book as a whole is about creating more margin in your already exi...
