Laid off Today-asking for advice
Well, my husband was laid off today. He'll be joining the ranks of over 50 and unemployed. We know that in today's economy, this won't be an easy road. The company was acquired by another on July 1st and hundreds were given notice this week-small consolation that he's not alone.
I'm self-employed so without health benefits. Any advice that I could get from others who have been through this would be appreciated. What should we do first? I'm making out a new bare bones budget, cutting expenses etc. We have an emergency fund (hope it's enough), no credit card debt, but we do have a mortgage and car payment. Advice and encouragement would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
