The mom.me Sequester Survey

Nobody knows the exact long-term effects of the sequester—the approximately $85 million in federal budget cuts that went into effect on Friday. But most moms can relate to the idea of having to squeeze their own budgets...yet again. As the federal government looked for ways to cut non-defense spending by 9% in the next seven months, mom.me asked the moms of America what they would cut from their household budgets if they were forced to do the same. From Starbucks to date nights, 2,000 moms told us what they would cut in their House (and what they refuse to give up).
