In our family, my husband is in charge of all the monthly bills, from the electricity, water, cable and telephone. Me i am in charge of the food and tuition fee of our daugther.Or if any of us is short of cash we share our money. How about you, how do you manage your family monthly bills in your house?

I'm a stay at home mom of three children. So my job mostly is to take care to the kids. My hubby works full time. I get his paychecks on friday. I cash his check and pay all of the bills. I also do the house cleaning, and cooking. As well as making sure the bills are paid, and the kids are taken care of.

It is a choice whether you stay at home or you work. Caring and serving your family is also a great job that cannot be paid-off. Nobody can pay you for satisfaction you made, great job. and good luck to your family.

The fulfillment of having a responsibity is different that having nothing. I suggest that you try helping in just little way so that you can feel what it feels like doing.

Caring for your son and your family is already a big responsibility, i will salute you for being a hands-on mom to your child. Unfortunately i have to work for a living because i am the breadwinner of the family.

I'm a stay at home mom so my hubby pays all the bills. If i have saved a bit from pocket money he gives me, or if i make $$ through odd jobs and or online surveys and stuff, then i tend to share it with my son.
