Family: The sooner the better & options to consider

Here are some things you can do right now to get your family in order:

  • Talk to your partner/spouse and children. Here are some things to talk about:
    • How long can you go without a paycheck … and still pay your bills?
    • What can you all do right now to cut down on expenses dramatically?
    • Is there anything you can do to make money right now … while you search for a new big job?
  • Involve the kids in the conversation if they are old enough to understand. It’s an important life lesson, and if they understand why you’re trimming expenses, they probably won’t bark about wanting new clothes or wanting to order take-out for dinner again.
