Aw… well it sounds like you’re doing all the right things. I have a problem with people whining when they have the power to change their situation… but when someone is doing what they need to do and its just not working– whine away! Sometimes I think just venting a minute can get the bad thoughts out of your mind and let you move on in a more positive way 🙂

🙁  You’re completely allowed to whine!  Wishing you luck for the future.  You’ll find something in the new town.  The time of year is hard, too.  Most places have just laid off their holiday help within the last few months, but a lot of places hire more help for the summer, so within the next couple of months, hopefully you’ll find something!

I hear you. I had a very hard time finding my job after I got laid off. I got lucky because a friend knew of an opening at her work that fit my degree.

Lots of warm wishes heading your way!

Vent away 🙂

That’s so tough!  I was unemployed for a year and not being able to buy fun stuff was the worst!  Good luck with the job search!

I am in a similar boat. I have a job, but it pays crap. I haven’t been able to buy myself anything fun in a long time either. It gets super discouraging, but I just try and focus on being grateful for what I do have. Way easier said than done. LOL. My guy makes more money than I do, so he can go out to eat lunch and buy fun stuff, but I have to be super careful. The only extra money I do have goes to the wedding, which my parents are paying the majority of. It sounds like you will be in a much better situation next month once you guys move though! In the meantime, have you thought about trying to take on temp jobs with a temp agency or even baby sitting or something? I donated plasma for a while for some extra cash, but it was kinda weird, so I stopped. But I might start up again. lol.

Best of luck to you in your job search!!

@Gingersnap:Have you tried following up with these places instead of waiting for them to call you back? At my current position, I called the manager every other week for 4 months after my first interview. I wouldn’t let any company that I applied to off the hook until they officially turned me down. 

I know it’s hard when you’re looking for work because it’s your #1 priority, but it’s the manager’s #1,000ths priority. Sometimes some persistence really pays off!

@CanAmBride:  This is a great idea.  It’s also how I’ve gotten jobs.

Good luck!  It’s tough out there, but something will come through for you!

@CanAmBride: I was about to say the exact same thing!  Follow-up with those places that said they would call but haven’t.  Taking that initiative should impress them too!

While you’re doing every thing you can to find a job, do you have anything lying around that you can sell on ebay?  I make a decent amount of extra cash selling old clothes, purses, whatever that I would normally give away.  Last month I made $50.
