So, this is a post I never thought I would be writing. After seven years of working for the same company, Mr. Money lost his job. I think we’re both still in shock and will try to figure out what is the best plan for our family. I am so thankful that we have always been able to live on not a lot of money, so it’s not like we’re going to feel a huge lifestyle downgrade.
I hope he is able to find a job quickly and that it is even better than the last one he had. Benefits would be amazing! Right now we have to pay for our really crappy health insurance ourselves and it’s expensive and doesn’t cover a lot. Better health insurance and a 401k plan would be amazing. While we’re at it, I’ll take good hours too. 😉
I’m trying to come up with some ideas to make money from home for myself. I could start babysitting now that Mr. Money is home to help but after he goes back to work it may be difficult. I am sure I will come up with something that will help. For right now, we’re trimming our budget down to the necessities and seeing how we can save money each month. We had to stop our retirement contributions temporarily too.
I’m trying to stay positive. It’s scary when you are a one income family with a baby and your one source of income is eliminated. 🙁 We’ve gotten through everything before, so I’m confident that we will come ahead out of this and things will all work out just fine.
