DH wants to move into another field, there is an opportunity but it is just under 55k a year and we would have to move interstate (happy to move)
He is currently on about 110K. But it's a bit "dead end" -if his current role ends (which it could, not the most secure job) then he will be faced with no job where we currently live
The new job is for a council and is an entry level position for something he is interested in.
I am a sahm with 3 kids. Oldest in school. Yes, I do plan on going back to work when kids are all in kinder/ school but I can't earn a lot. Hubby will be the primary income earner
My worries are
Will we be able to get a rental on just 55k? If there is more ftb will real estate agents take this into consideration?
Are we crazy walking away from such a high paying job? Has anyone dropped so much income through choice and regretted it?
Does anyone live well on 55k? We already have to budget
Kinder fees are also a worry, kids will go to state school. Is there any help for people on this level wage or does your wage have to be much lower?
Thanks for any help
