Working women do have the privilege to enjoy the perks and benefits of being financially independent, whereas homemakers don’t. It is mandatory for women, particularly homemakers, to save some money for themselves. It is very beneficial for the future, we never know what will happen in the future! The question that arises is how homemakers can achieve financial independence? When the breadwinner of the family is a man then the homemaker is responsible for spending the money on the necessary items. So, a homemaker needs to be clever enough to save some of the money from the monthly home budget and keep it for herself. Start saving, no matter how small the amount is, it’s better than nothing! Homemakers can invest money in small funds which can later become a good amount. Women who get some time after working at home should do part-time work such as taking tutions or starting a home business. Women can also start their own social media accounts and earn as an influencer. There are many things that a homemaker can do in order to be financially independent but they have to be smart and responsible enough to make it happen. There is a sense of regret about not being financially independent in women but there’s also confidence among women to make the right decisions to spend and save for the household. In the end, a woman whether working or a homemaker can do anything.
