Help me decide, because I need to make a decision soon and I just can’t figure out what I want to do!
Important background info: I have an 8-5, M-F job with a 5 minute communte. The mall I would get a job at is about 10 minutes from work, 15 from home. FI works in retail, so he’s NEVER home around the holidays. I’ve gotten a seasonal job at the mall the past two winters – I’d probably go back to Bath and Body Works, which is where I worked last year. This is not necessary income, just extra spending money around the holidays.
Pro: extra money (I usually make about $150-200/week for 3 months), something to do when FI is working like crazy, I really enjoy it most of the time (I’m a very customer-service oriented person), employee discount
Con: I HATE it by the end of the season, it’s a lot of work (usually about 30 hours a week on top of my regular job), I have no free time (thus it is difficult to make time with out of town friends in for the holidays, etc)
My mom, FI, and friends all say I shouldn’t do, just cut back on the money I spend on gifts. I just don’t hate it enough to cut it out completely. Ugh. What would you do?
