Long story but DH has a job offer on the table after almost 6 months of unemployment.
The downside of the job is that he will have to travel and I will need to stay home with the kiddos. Until his training period is over this will put us at $700 net/month deficit (he gets paid less in training than for the actual job).
What can I do to bring in the difference? We do live in an Urban area so this amount is not absurd (less than a month's rent).
Other things that are helpful to know: I am due mid-July with #2 and will work full time until then. Anything I do needs to be "on the side" right now or part - time at home starting mid-end of August.
Here is what I have come up with so far:
(working on getting paying gigs - just time consuming)
-Before/After school care for 1 child when the school year starts
(makes me nervous because I can't 'secure' this until mid-late August)
-Ask my current job if I can work from home doing marketing
(haven't proposed this yet and wouldn't have considered it in the past but feel the need to now, don't know when the best time to approach this would be, thoughts?)
Any other ideas? During DH's unemployment we have used up the majority of our savings. If there are things I can do now to stash some money away I would love that!
Thanks for your input ladies. Frugal mom's unite!
(Also we are down to the bare minimum on budget: no TV, no home phone, Aldi grocery shopping, etc. DH's training salary will cover our entire cost of living the $700 outstanding a month is debt
