I am working part-time right now, but it’s not enough hours to pay bills and put money aside for the wedding.  If a full-time position doesn’t open up in the next few months, I plan to work two jobs until I am offered or am able to work full-time.

I am a unit secretary at a psychiatric hospital.  It’s very interesting.

My employee discounts includes a few awesome things I could use towards the wedding.  IE: shoes.com.   How awesome is that?! ๐Ÿ™‚

I can also get up to 3 nights free stay at Disney World.

 I actually got a part-time job and realized I was making nothing. Since I wasn’t home to cook at night DH and I were both eating out so my $8.50 an hour pay before taxes went straight out the window. DH on the other hand did get a second job for a great pay and it worked out for us. Is there anything you or your FI have a skill in that you could use that to make a little extra money.

I’m working two part time jobs now (though I work about 50 hours a week total).  I picked up an extra 3 days a week at an organic food store with the thought of saving all of the money I made from the market for the wedding.

The other, and primary job, I have is at a flower shop.  So I’ll definitely be getting perks out of working there.  ๐Ÿ™‚  Not only do I get to buy all my flowers at cost, but I know how to do them myself so I don’t have to pay labor.  Woot woot!

Mr. Tattoo is a programmer and graphic designer so he is picking up extra requests and I started selling Mary Kay again. FI also quit smoking so we are putting that $3000 towards the wedding.

@RayRayFurious: Gotcha.  Hah.  Well, I DO plan to work two jobs if needed.

Both my FI and I are teaching extra classes for more money to help pay for the wedding.

Oh, our full time jobs are being professors, so in a kind of roundabout sort of way, the perk of teaching extra classes is that our work hours are still within the school calendar, and thus we have preserved our precious breaks! If we took some other part time job, we might be booked over the summer…and then when would we have time for our wedding and honeymoon! ๐Ÿ™‚

@RayRayFurious: Yes, good luck to you.  It’s a damn shame.

@RayRayFurious : I teach English (reading and writing and critical thinking – not literature) and my FI teaches math (mostly calculus). What are you studying in grad school?

In order of if it’s worth it I think that’s different in every situation, figure out how much you will make after taxes and what you will have to give up and if there will be additional expenses associated.
