How many of you are currently going through the struggles of finding work or have recently went through those struggles?

How did you cope financially while you looked?

I'm currently looking for work but luckily my husband works full time so we aren't struggling.  It's so tough out there.  I feel for everyone!  Good luck and I hope something comes your way.

My husband has been working only part-time for quite awhile now. 

We have cut our bills way down, and just try not to spend anything.

My husband works full-time as well, but it isn't paying all the bills. Thank you though. =)

I just got a job Monday. I had training today. I'm going to be a preK teacher. As for coping, we weren't (we just did without and mil was giving Dh gas money just to get to work) and still aren't till I finally get paid.

My hubby and I both work full time. Right now we aren't having any issues. Things can always change though.

My husband and I each work part time.  We are always looking for something better, but what we have now is more than we did for 3 years while he was out of work.  Luckily I have a great mother in law that lets us live with her (we pay rent) until we can buy a house.  Things are tight, but we manage and have what we need.  Luckily our rent includes utilities and we just have to buy food, gas, and we pay for insurance,  groceries, cell phones, car pmts etc.  We both also go to school, so hopefully the market opens up a bit as we complete our degrees and we can both get decent full time jobs!

It is so hard to find a good job.  I just applied for three different positions I really wanted and thought I was perfectly qualified for, and didn't even get a phone call.  It has made both hubby and I question if we should even keep bothering to waste the paper and stamps to apply!  Good luck to everyone looking, I hope things start looking up soon!

We have been lucky not to have to deal with any of that yet.
