Six figures for SAHMs

U24840832 Of course we all know that the work mamas put it on the home front is priceless.  But.  CNN just released its 8th annual survey of what SAHM's would make if they were actually paid for their tireless, often thankless - but of course (mostly) very rewarding work.  Ready to hit the mall, mamas, with your $117,000/year?   Not surprising, of course, given the overtime!  And WOHM's would earn an extra $68,000 for their at-home labor.  Bring it on.  Makes our '08 economic stimulus check pale by comparison.  What do you think?  Useful exercise?  Off the mark?  You really can't buy love?

Hmmmm.....I wonder what a single WOHM who is a homeowner is valued? I don't "hire out" yardwork, most landscaping, gutter cleaning and minor repairs; its all DIY at my house.

what i want to know is how do i turn these numbers into CASH????!

in some ways this is encouraging. but it also frustrates me more that i'm "earning" that much but can't afford to get a new bra that fits, ya know?
