I just got a p-t job (yay!) to help pay for summer/wedding expenses. Although our wedding is really, really small, there are little ‘unknowns’ that are bound to creep up. I will only be working officially for two months before our wedding. So, I really didn’t prepare saving thousands (just hundreds!). 

 

I think working p-t is a great idea, if you can give up some of your time. Even a one day a week job (for 8 hours a day) adds up in the long run.

I have been looking for any work anywhere and haven’t even been able to get a part time job!  I don’t have a lot of retail experience so they don’t want me.

MissAsB: We live in a small town and it took me four months to find a p-t job. I applied for 8 positions and only one called me back. It is very nerve racking!

I have applied to a ton of full-time and part-time jobs over the past few months and had 2 interviews but nothing came of them.

Rather than looking for a retail job, what about just working for yourself? You could always post ads on CL to be a dog walker, plant sitter, house cleaner, etc. When I was unemployed a few years ago, I considered doing this, but then like three days after the idea, I got offered a job (where I’m at now). I went onto some forums and found that a lot of people were making decent money to supplement their income just by cleaning houses and walking dogs. Most of them just worked Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and then they still had Saturday nights free, and all day Sunday.

Also, cleaning doesn’t bother me too much, and I love dogs, so this was an option for me, but it’s not for everyone, which I realize.

ETA: My aunt has a cleaning lady for her house. It takes the lady about two hours to do the entire house (dusting, vacuuming, bathroom, etc.) and she gets paid $50 a week. Not too bad!
