I've been working since age 14, and now I'm preparing to be a SAHM within the next 2 months. I'm having serious issues letting go of not brining in a salary. I've done everything possible to make sure that we have no debt and that we have a chunk of money in our savings account.
After paying off our debt, my idea of a "chunk" in our savings account ended up at $5,000 rather then the 8k I was orginally planning. I don't know if this is a good amount to have or not. We'll still be able to save some mone with just DH working, but i'm afraid of how drastically our lifestyle will change.
Since paying off debt every month for the past 7 months, we've basically been living off of DH's salary alone which has been a good outlook on how things will be after DS is born.
I'm just scared of not knowing how differen tlife will be without me working, and I can't get over it....anyone have any insight to make me feel more confident about this decision I'm about to make?
