I have started to think about our tax check and what we are going to do with it. I had it all set till last FRi when DH called me and said they are doing MASS lay off and he wasn't sure if he was gong to make it. We found out Monday that he was ok but at this point we don't know for how long. He has already started to look for a job but he is at a hirer pay scale and they are hard to come by.
Quick back ground, DH was laid off most of last year after working for a co for 6 years. He was out of work for 7 mo and found the job he has now. In that 7 mo we got into so GOOOOOOOD CC debt. I am bound and determined to get out of it in the next few years. ALSO we have no saving.....
So here is my questions....
With not knowing what is up with his job do we but all of our tax money into saving?
Do we pay off 1/2 of our debt and but 1/2 in saving.
We were planning on buying a new couch ( YES I KNOW BUT WE REALLY NEED ONE, we needed 1 last year and said we could hold off 1 more year) and putting the rest on a CC
Instead should we put the $$ we were going to spend on the couch in saving till we know what we are doing and then add the rest to CC?
AHHHH I am so confused!
Thank you for letting me pick your brain AGAIN!!!!
