Having been in the blogging world for years (and a mom!), I’ve been aware of The Humbled Homemaker blog for quite a long time. It’s one of the big timers in the “mom blog” arena. Erin Odom writes on all sorts of topics related to motherhood and keeping a home — which can range from managing the family finances to meal planning.
Recently, she has published a book that brings together 100 tips and tricks for a mom to introduce into her home. When implemented, the idea is that the mom no longer has to work outside the home unless she wants to. It’s specifically written toward those trying to stay home but can’t at the present time.
Though no section goes into incredible detail, it’s still a great resource for this group of people. Even if you’re already a stay-at-home parent, utilizing some of her ideas could expand the comfort of your monthly budget. From being smarter with money to finding creative ways to increase income, there’s at least a little nugget (probably more!) for everyone.
This was up my alley in the way that my family and I already implement much of her suggestions or have other creative ways of doing things, so it wasn’t drastically life-altering. But I’m still glad to have it now! Especially so I can point fellow friends to it when related topics arise in conversation. Sometimes it’s better to say, “You know what So-and-So says…” instead of, “You should do it like we do…” 🙂 It’s also a cute, hardback book with a lovely ribbon bookmark, suggesting it would make a great gift.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
