Are You in a Season of Unemployment?


I’m excited to share that I am guest posting at one of my favorite blogs, Money Saving Mom.

Before my husband lost his job a couple of years ago (we kind of knew it was coming), I began looking into couponing to reduce our monthly grocery and household spending. This was when I first came across Money Saving Mom. It all seemed so overwhelming at the time, but I read through all the how-to posts and decided to dive in.

My husband is now employed (Praise The Lord!), but what I thought was just going to be a temporary measure during our time of unemployment is now a way of life for us. I wouldn’t call myself an extreme couponer, and I don’t necessarily chase after every good deal out there. But I realize that when we had very little, how important it was to be a good steward of the little that we had. We have been blessed with more now, but the lessons on stewardship still remain with us today.

I would love it if you could swing by Money Saving Mom. Here is a snippet of my post.

What Should You Do When You Lose Your Job?

When my husband’s job ended almost two years ago, the outlook on the future seemed bleak. I didn’t work outside the home, and we had four young children. One thing we kept asking ourselves was “Will we make it through this season of unemployment?”

Perhaps you are facing this season right now. And even if you are happily employed, it doesn’t hurt to be ready. There are things you can do now to prepare for the unexpected event of losing your job.

  1. Will definitely check it out. My husband quit/lost his job I think thrice already and during those times, I was juggling all the expenses in our extended family ALONE. Whew. I consider it an accomplishment to have gone through and survived that era!
