After far too many years of being unhappy in his job, my husband recently decided to look for work. He toughed out terrible hours and a maniacal boss for as long as he could, and I was actually the one who recommended he make a change. He was no longer himself when he got home from work, and I couldn’t stand to see him so miserable day after day. It was a tough decision, because he’s more than likely going to need to take a pay cut in a new role. He has been with his company for a very long time and has moved through the ranks significantly. There’s no way a new company will be able to match his current salary unless he takes on an equally stressful new job, and I can’t bear to let him do that. It’s been tough but we are doing our best to save money wherever we can. I’ve stopped shopping for anything I don’t need, and I shop sales whenever I can. We also discovered a ridiculously easy way to save money—by switching energy providers! I didn’t even know it was an option until a friend recommended I visithttp://www.shopelectricityratestexas.com/texas-electricity-rates/Texas/H/Houston/ and check out our options! The process of making the change was super easy, and we had to make no effort at all to save the money every month. I know that money will come in handy when he finds his new job. I can’t wait to see him happy again.
