Quoting Mama Lizzy :]:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" That sucks. If it makes you feel any better, ... [snip!] ... a 25-30 min drive...BUT anywhere else I would probably make like 3 dollars less an hour sooo...would it be worth it?"
I have a lot of my own bills, so it's going to be hard for a bit... but I'm hoping that my probation officer will let me off early next month which is -$50/month, and with using some random wifi without a password that showed up (
) has dropped my cell phone bill from like, $150 to $75 (ATT and their damn limited data), and I need to hassle Eric again about refinancing my car so maybe the payments will lower. but until I can get all that done I'm only saving about $75/month on my cell phone, and who knows when the wifi will disappear lol so I just don't know how long it will last with all of my expenses on top of his AND the expenses of a new baby. we did save a $150 gift card to buy buy baby that we got at my shower, though, for "just in case"
though I do keep reminding him of this fact that I found: "couples with new babies spend average $7,000 just in the first year on diapers and wipes, formula, and child care."
and I'm eliminating all
of those. (well, at least knocking it down to maybe $300 up front for diapers, and as long as nothing goes wrong BFing)
I would say that the gas money would all depend on how well your van does on gas... bc I mean if that's really the only place you drive to and back, I don't think it'd be that big of a deal... It's not really that
much gas even just from my apartment to your house, which I believe is farther.
and with an extra $3/hour, I'd think that more than makes up for gas expenses. Especially since there you'll more than likely be able to get the hours/days you want/need since you worked there for so long before.
