Looking through last year’s archives, I ran across two posts which are particularly relevant at this time of year to us and all other families with teachers. The posts are:
I wrote these because many teachers and adjunct professors (Micah) don’t earn a regular salary but are instead paid during the school year. If they don’t take summer work, this has a huge impact on how they and their partners manage their finances. The posts contain my thoughts on ways to handle budgeting and debt repayment.
If you’re a teacher or seasonal worker who hasn’t yet worked out a way to manage your income, check them out. They may be less useful since this is the beginning of the off-season, but I hope they’ll prove helpful in the long run.
