In between my posts on the Tightwad Gazette II, I am going to post possible case scenarios. It is my hope that it will start a discussion in your families or at the very least get you to thinking about what you will do. Many times we don't want to think about the bumps in the road of life and we would rather stick our heads in the sand and deny the possibility of these situations happening to us. So, let's face those fears head on and brain storm what we will do. Here is the first case scenario:
You are a one income family and the sole income provider has become unemployed. It is estimated he/she will be out of work for 6 to 9 months.
How will you survive? Take stock of what food you have on hand, what money you have in your bank accounts and how much unemployment checks you will receive. Make a plan.
