Career Women Lead to Wasteful Living

Women who have careers waste money. Many of them have to buy expensive clothing. They have to own their own car and spend money on the gas to get to and from work. They have to spend more money on food since they don't have the time to find the best quality food for less money and fix it from scratch. In fact, many times they have to buy take out food since they are too exhausted to cook when they get home. Then there is the money they have to spend for daycare. The list could go on and on about how much more money it takes to have a career than to stay home full-time and learn to save money instead of spend it.

One woman in the chat room figured out that she was only making $110 per month while she was working outside of the home. She made $1400 to $1500 a month. When she was working, she spent $1400 a month on food. There is no time to fix scrambled eggs with onions, peppers, and a bit of cheese with some homemade bread in the morning, along with a fresh picked orange from the tree in your yard for her family to enjoy. No, she had to eat expensive cereal out of a box which is devoid of any healthy vitamins and minerals. For lunch, instead of fixing a large salad with roasted chicken, avocado, and homemade salad dressing, she had to run across the street to a fast food joint which isn't really food since it does nothing to nourish her body. For dinner, instead of grilling some fresh fish with baked potatoes and yams or some yummy rice, bean, and chicken stew for her family, after finally getting home from a long day at work, she was grabbing a pizza from the local pizza store for dinner along with a couple of sodas. Nutritious homemade meals were only costing her $400 per month instead of the $1400 per month when she worked outside of the home. No comparison in any way. {I realize some of you who work full-time outside of the home make every effort possible to feed your family healthy but many do not. Fast food joints started going strong when women left their homes for careers.}

When a woman works outside of the home, she has no time to garden, hang up clothing outside to dry, make her own non-toxic cleaners, clean her windows and home, find the best prices, go to garage sales, nurse her baby full-time, use cloth diapers, learn to sew, cut and color hair, and a multitude of other things full-time wives and mothers are able to do. 

Our government wants to spend more money on daycare so mothers can leave their homes and work. They are very good at wasting other people's money. They have no wisdom. It is much less money to encourage mothers to learn to live within the money their husband makes and live frugally. 

Working at home full-time is not only healthier for the family, it is healthier for the women in every way. If you are working full-time, keep track of all of your expenses for a month. Subtract that from what you make plus the taxes that are taken out and you will probably find out it is better to learn to live frugally and within your husband's income than have a job outside of your home. After all, a penny saved is better than a penny earned for a mother since your children need you way more than any job needs you.

But godliness with contentment is great gain.
