I am so excited to be featured as a contributor at CouponsDaily.com. So many of us moms cut coupons, watch for sales and scour the internet for discount codes but have you ever thought about your financial worth as a mother?
I dish it all over at CouponsDaily.com. Here’s a little glimpse:
“Recently I was speaking with a group of moms I mentor about our financial value as moms. It’s not necessarily what our paycheck (or lack of paycheck) says we are worth but what we feel we are financially worth.
As stay-at-home moms, even as work-at-home moms, we often place our financial value much lower than it actually is.
Last spring, Salary.com released the results of a survey of more than 6,000 moms revealing what their top 10 most time-consuming jobs were and how much time they spent on each activity.
The numbers were crunched and an estimate of what mothers would make if they were paid an annual salary was displayed in infographics.
According to this 2013 survey, a stay-at-home mom juggles 94 hours of work each week, which could constitute a salary of $113,568.
Working moms have 58 hours of work at home each week, totaling in a mom-only salary of $67,436 added to their actual salary.

When it comes to money, do you struggle with the thought, “Who am I to think I deserve this?” I hear women say that all the time.
Here are three ideas to consider and help you accept your financial worth:”
