If ft job pays 2x more than part time one then I still vote #2. You will learn to be organized. Pt jobs still suck your time and have 0 upside potential [ Reply | More ]

Need more info. What is dh's salary? What's the actual salary difference in pay between these two jobs? Do you have a good after school program for dc and what does it cost? Do you even need benefits? Does Job 1 have opportunity for advancement or moving o full time later if you want? Are commute times and stress levels equal? [ Reply | More ]

The government job will be relatively low stress and manageable. After a little time, you could probably negotiate to 8-4 and then 7-3 depending on the job. Read about the pension - it won't be trivial [ Reply | More ]

That's what I'm leaning towards. I'm currently work parttime now but the hours were not favorable. The government position offers more stability. [ Reply | More ]

We have a higher HHI and 3 DCs in public school too. I don't think she has a good deal at all. Even if what she pays from private school seems low, it's a large percentage of their HHI and irresponsible. They don't save a penny and their DCs will be saddled with debt when they go to college.

I don't think she has a good deal and I don't think TT ES is worth 11K at that HHI but frankly I know many families where 2nd income comes from a job like Administrative assistant, office manager erc. There are jobs in NYC that pay 100-150 and don't require much of a skill set. They could be 250K+ HHI but she takes it easy [ Reply | More ]

I don't disagree, but I also think they're being foolish with their spending. Living paycheck by paycheck isn't smart when you have other options. They could save 11k / year immediately. [ Reply | More ]
