    Default Having a back up plan...

    Ok, so I have my budget set out so that after june/july there will be no more daycare. I will take 18-24 months off

    Now, I don't WANT to re-open after that time. BUT, I found a back up plan. If we find we are using up the savings, then I need to have some income.

    I could drive a school bus through the school year. It would for the most part allow me to be free through the week for the girls. I'd drive in the morning. It may interfere with some days where they have special activities, BUT I would know well in advance, and book it off.

    It means a later supper, but by then I will have 2 girls more than able to handle that.

    I don't want to, but it's less time demands on my family. And could make it work where I would be free with my days.

    I would be home by 9am. ANd need to be on the road again at about 3. So nothing interfering.

    It could work beautifully.

    I applaud your efforts to do this but... If it was me, I'd figure it all up, do the planning and then ADD an extra little bit. Just in case... or maybe I'm just the paranoid type.
    I saved 100% by buying nothing. Best sale of the year.

    Think for yourself, question everything.

    Russ, my planning includes an extra 6K already..lol

    Like you, I'm a little paranoid. I'll keep at it an extra 3 months to make it work.
