Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie har varit att undersöka hur ensamstående mödrar upplever vardagen vid knapp ekonomi. Uppsatsen är baserad på kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer. I studien har sex stycken ensamstående mödrar och en socialsekreterare med ansvar inom försörjningsstöd deltagit. Resultatet visar hur de ensamstående mödrarna blir påverkade av samhälleliga konsumtionsmönster som är tydligt normbildande av vad som uppfattas normalt. Kvinnorna beskriver hur svårt det är att hantera vardagliga konsumtionsmönster i en strävan att tillhöra det normala. Studien belyser även hur konsumtion är ett sätt att visa vem du är och hur detta påverkar familjer med knapp ekonomi. Kvinnorna upplever ett inre utanförskap och försöker genom olika strategier minimera stigmat.
