Hi, my husband got laid off from work, am a stay at home mom. What should I do now? Need to make about 2k every month to pay bills and debt, where should I apply? I don't know what to do super stressed? Am in NJ if that helps me in getting directions. Thanks for help in advance.

Hope you save up for a rainy day fund that will last at least 3 months in case of situations like this.

If not, sell your stuff and/or dig into your credit cards.

Totally unrelated but you sound like a bot on craigslist in the personals.

but anyways, if your user name is any indication, i'd say tune down frivolous spending and try to save any way you can. Apply for unemployment and maybe both of you guys can get jobs. uber is another thing you can think about doing.

I guess your husband could try to find a new job? Just a thought. Maybe you can get some part time work in the evening instead staying at home all the time.

Condolences. The best advice I can give is to ask your question on other forums. There are plenty of forums geared towards unemployment and how to cope. They will offer helpful advice and be supportive. SD is simply not that kind of forum. It's not SD culture to be sympathetic or supportive.

File for unemployment, cancel/stop all unnecessary purchases (cable, phones, etc), find a new job.

This assumes you are like most of america who doesn't have an emergency fund.

When my wife got laid off, I told her not to be a lazy butt and go to work. I got laid off last April and I started looking in a week. And yes, I have my rainy day fund then.

Probably sounds like a bot because he's scamming people.

Here's a similar thread from last year
