    It is easy to become too comfortable in a job and get used. (let's face it, we all get used at our jobs) If you have the chance to make a good bit more money, I'd say go for it, as long as you aren't taking too big of a risk of unemployment.

    By the way almost any skill you have is valuable to the right people. Start your on gig today not tomorrow. Don’t know where you live but sites like thumbtack will give you immediate leads and business.

    At some point, you’re gonna need to hire a maid. You’ll need the extra cash.

    If I could do it over again, I wouldn't stay anywhere for more than three or four years. When you move around, you see your profession from different angles and you get to see different aspects of the job. It makes you better at what you do.

    In addition, it's a good policy to move when you feel that you aren't learning anything new. I think the operative phrase is "diminishing returns".

    I think the above are more important than money.
