Sharing a household with another single mom

One of the latest ways for single moms to save money is by finding another single mom as a roommate. With two incomes for one household, many moms find they can afford a larger house, or a house in a better area with a superior school than in the neighborhood they could afford to live on their own.

If this is an option you would like to consider, check around with friends to see if they know of a single mom who might be receptive to the idea. They mind be able to think of a fellow mom who shares a similar personality type who might be receptive to the idea, even if it had never occurred to her before.

There are also roomate finding services that might be able to assist you, including some that specifically cater to single moms.

If this is an option you would like to consider, be sure to take your child's feelings into account if the mom in question has kids your children just do not get along with, particularly if they will be sharing a bedroom. But that said, these kinds of situations will often create lifelong friendships, for both you and your kids.
