Help me out with a post about maternity leave? :)
« on: Apr 04, 2014 @ 03:03 PM »
Hi everyone!
I'm sad to say my maternity leave is almost up and I'll be back to work soon. I've been thinking about writing a post about financially surviving maternity leave but I could use your help putting it together. What tips do you have for living on a budget with an extra mouth to feed? I'd like to hear from you whether you had a short leave or if you were lucky enough to have a lengthy one. I'll update here once I get it all together and posted.

Thanks :)


Come see what we're up to!

Did you receive help?  Anyone bring you dinners or run any errands for you?  I would include ANYTHING that saved you even a cent.  I had to use my vacation time to cover my leave, which only covered half.  We basically used up all the gift cards and freebies we got.  I did a little trick with my baby shower gifts, we returned anything that was duplicate or didn't want and used it for things we DID need.   Hope this helps!
