Making Ends Meet as a Stay at Home Mother


This post is sponsored by Ingo Money. All opinions are my own.

Four years ago, I made the decision to quit my job and become a stay at home mother. This was a scary decision, but it was one that I was ready to move forward with.

In order to become a stay at home mother, my family had to make changes in our everyday lifestyle. The cable bill was cut, we changed cell phone plans, stopped eating out and our ever growing list of home improvement plans was put to the side.

Making Ends Meet as a Stay at Home Mother

Like many other families, we quickly found ourselves living paycheck to paycheck. The last days of the month are the hardest, when bills are paid and we don’t have a lot to play around with.

To make this time more bearable, I find a lot of odds and ends jobs to do for friends and family. Some of these jobs include cleaning houses, cutting hair for friends and family and even doing design work for some of my blogging friends.

When the work is done, I’m often handed a check. I don’t mind checks, but sometimes they can be a problem when received on a weekend. The bank isn’t open and any checks that are deposited won’t be available until Monday or Tuesday.

Been there too?

The Ingo Money app can be a lifesaver with those last minute situations when you need your check cashed in minutes.

How does the Ingo Money app work?

Download the Ingo Money app onto your smartphone and enroll a participating Prepaid card. Once you’ve enrolled a participating Prepaid card, just take a picture of your check with your smartphone to send it to Ingo Money.

With a small 1% or 4% fee, you can load the funds to your card in minutes, or if you can wait 10 days to load your funds there is no fee.

Ingo Money reviews all checks for approval prior to loading the funds; if approved, the funds are yours to keep and will not be reversed even if the check bounces. To learn more about Ingo Money, please visit:
