Bad news at work

December 16th, 2008 at 08:19 pm

Hubby's work not mine. He was told no raises in 2009 and very little bonus. Some folks won't get any. he makes good money and it is our own fault we are in debt but we were hoping for the bonus and raise to get us out of it. Oh well, we can conserve more I'm sure. I have been doing a bit of saving, not much with the holidays but a bit and I can do a bit more. I want an emergency fund that is healthy. Then I want to pay off debt. I am actually putting the same amount in the fund as I put on the credit card. The income tax return will help with the credit card pay off I'm sure and at least there will be some bonus.

    Sorry to hear about the raise but glad he's able to keep his job...so many are out of work just before the holiday. Good for you on socking away something for a rainy day

    I'm glad you got notice of the news too...many people were counting on the money and sounds like it's going to be a tough year for everyone.

    I know raises are low or nonexistent this year. Hopefully next year will be better- I'm being optimistic. I am trying to save more, too.
