I'm assuming you work, MilSpousers. I'm assuming you also have hit the unemployment section of the daily paper more than once since getting your fancy MilDependent ID. So what's the first thing you do when the paychecks stop flowing?
In December I will cross that burning bridge and if you've got tips on handling unemployment in an organized and graceful manner, please tell me!
How do you deflect the soul-crushing hit to your self-esteem?
Best techniques on keeping a wild-caught salmon and arborrio rice pantry with zero cash (oh, and did you hear about the Department of Defense fact-finding mission on closing all Commisaries)?
Budgeting tricks for ensuring BAH, rent and/or mortgage/s, car payments, utilities, and student loans all line up?
Hit me up. As a MilNewbie, I could use advice.
