Losing a job is not a pleasant experience. The reality is that there are things that have to be done regardless of what the job loss situation was. Daily needs have to be met.
Tips on survival if you lose your job.
There are steps that you can take to make your job loss less burdensome.
Have some savings to make it through until you get another job.
This can take the stress out of having to have a job immediately especially if it’s hard to find a job. Try to keep a reserve for this occasion.
Lower your debts.
The less debt you have, the less you have to worry about when you do lose your job. Trim back your lifestyle until your debts are taken care of.
Trade skills for goods and services.
You might have a skill that can be traded for something else. Check a site like craigslist to find out what people need and see if you can work with them in exchange for something else. You have nothing but time after a job loss.
Have some food storage.
It’s always a good idea to have some food stored because you never know what’s going to happen. If you have some food storage, then you know you have something to eat. It’s best to store food that you normally eat as opposed to dehydrated rations that don’t really taste that good. Even as little as a 30 day supply can go a long ways on a limited budget. If you are a hunter or fisherman, this can be another source of food.
Small gardens can replace much of the food you eat during the summer and some of the food you eat during the winter. They do take a little bit of maintenance, but are worthwhile. You can fall back onto you garden as another source of food.
