Comment: I gave up on finding a full-time job.

(See in situ)

I gave up on finding a full-time job.

Looking was a full-time, unpaid job and for the chance to have a job that might go overseas in a few months and have to start over? Putting the kids in childcare, gas money, etc. I'm not saying the expenses wouldn't work out to put us ahead financially, but the exhaustion and early grave aren't worth what amount it would put us ahead. I put the effort that would go into finding a job into cooking healthy meals and making this home work out more frugally. Again, not because a full-time job wouldn't work out financially, but because spending so much time looking for one means I can't make this home work out frugally enough to survive on one paycheck.
