A big change is coming

May 15th, 2014 at 07:32 pm

Recently my DH and I made a big decision. We are leaving our current location for a new place. We decided that for non-financial reasons we want to move. However we finances has of course complicated our decision.

Do we move without jobs? Do we move to somewhere that we could possibly get jobs in our fields? Do we take jobs in something different with a lot less pay? Do we move somewhere else a lot less expensive?

My preference is to move somewhere less expensive. I think that we can likely get jobs paying enough to cover our basic expenses and if housing is cheap enough we could manage on a lot less.

We certainly don't have enough to retire early but I am not sure we want to. My DH isn't comfortable with that jump. Perhaps when he's 45?

I guess that's the reason why I'm blogging again now. To document our journey for this big change in our lives. I don't know what the future holds but I am excited.

    When my husband and I decided to move we tried to pick a place where it would be certain I would have high paying employment and people would be willing to hire him since he was in the service.

    He ended up landing a job before I did his job started a day after we arrived in our new state. Scout an area beforehand to see what kind of jobs they have and try applying to a few before going. If possible make sure at least one of you is employed before the move.

    Do either of you work for a big company and have a job that will transfer? That could help too. Best of luck to you!!
