Life has become increasingly stressful for many stay-at-home mothers as a result of today’s uneasy economy and high gas prices. Many mothers are staying home more due to the high cost of gasoline and they are feeling more isolated and frustrated as a result. Some moms are efficiently streamlining all of their errands into one marathon day to save on gas. They are also shopping online more instead of hitting the stores and are missing the contact with other people that shopping would normally afford. And some women have resorted to eliminating date nights, eating out and even preschool for their children.
Have you changed your habits because of the economy and the cost of gas?
