We are in a relatively good position right now, debt-free other than mortgage, successfully having cut back on our major expenses and generally living pretty carefully. BUT we moved last year to a higher COL area and I have a lower salary....and we do not have enough money on a monthly basis...we find ourselves dipping into savings to avoid going into debt. And this is clearly not sustainable. I work full time and dp is a SAHM. We really need to bring in about $500 extra month at minimum to cover the basics. Does anyone have any ideas? She is a fully qualified teacher, currently homeschooling. She has considered tutoring, and is putting out resumes right now. Just wanted to ask for some help brainstorming, what can we do to make things work...what jobs are compatible with a SAHM/homeschooling life?
Thanks so much!
