Have you checked out Baby Budgeting? Becky Goddard-Hill is the author of How to Afford Time Off With Your Baby and Baby Budgeting is her blog. Both the book and the blog are packed full of useful advice for balancing the family budget for mums who want to take a career break to spend more time with their young children.
What I like about Becky is she’s determined that she will not only balance the budget but that her family will have fun doing it. So she’s turned what could have been a few years of penny-pinching into a really positive lifestyle where mums can enjoy their family time, see more of their children’s grandparents and and build the a community that wouldn’t have been possible if they worked full-time.
I also admire the way Becky leapt into blogging – she’s grown her readership incredibly fast and was a finalist for The MADs (Mums and Dad bloggers) Awards last year. She ‘s never afraid to try new things with her blog, which is why I was great to see her in this video…
Plus it’s really nice to actually see Becky because up until now I’ve only known her by blog and email! The video has some useful tips for budgeting with a family, including the recent changes to the UK’s child tax credit and child trust fund, so it’s well worth a watch.
Becky may be taking time off with her babies, but she’s got all the qualities of a true mumpreneur!
