So I am trying my best to save up at least $1,000 to $2,000 as quickly as possible so that I can use that as a down payment for a car. I’ve already got $500 saved up.
But it seems like it will be October at the earliest and even then, I’m not sure if I will have more than $1,000. I’m gonna have to severely cut back on fun stuff like going out to eat, activities with Boyfriend or Best Friend and friends, etc. I mean, I will not really be able to do anything fun until I save up this money. I also have to buy Boyfriend or Best Friend a gift for our one year anniversary next month and buy him another gift for his birthday in October.
So I got the idea to get a part-time job. But it’s complicated because I start real estate school on the 26th. I will have class every Monday and Wednesday night from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. And occasional Saturday classes from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
And Monday through Friday, I work my normal 9 to 5 job.
So what kind of part-time jobs can I get? Also, I am hard of hearing so that complicates things even further. I cannot work in a loud environment. So it has to be something relatively quiet like an office or a library. I already checked the local libraries though and no one is hiring.
What else can I do? Does anyone have any ideas?
Oh and I do not want to start any “businesses” like Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Thirty-One, etc. No pyramid schemes for me.
Come on bees, hit me with your best ideas, please 🙂

So your availability for this part time job would be the following:
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays from 6-close
Saturday from 2-close (occasional all day)
Sunday all day
Maybe something in retail? At like a dead store in the mall that doesn’t play loud music or get a lot of traffic?
Or perhaps apply to hostess at a super fancy restaurant…they’re usually pretty quiet. Does your hearing affect phone answering? Even though nowadays so many reservations are taken online…that’s kind of a stretch job though.
Do you like children? You could apply at a church day care maybe….it’d probably be just for the Sunday services but could be an extra $50 to $100 bucks a week. Or see if a local church needs office help, they usually have weekend hours.

@QuirkySocialite: I have considered retail but I’m trying to avoid that because in my experience, they always try to get you to work more hours than you can. Plus I was hoping for something a little quieter or less often, because I need to make sure I still have time to study for real estate school.
And yes, my hearing does affect phone answering. I can’t really answer the phone because I have to see a person’s face and read their lips.
I hadn’t considered a church though! That’s a good idea, I never would have thought of that. I wouldn’t mind working in a church day care since it would only be one day a week. Or I could work in a church office and do everything BUT answer phones. That is a great idea, thank you for suggesting this 🙂

@peachacid: I looked into tutoring but the local tutoring centers were looking for people that had a higher college GPA than mine.
