I always think about it but I sooo treasure my weekends.  I have signed up on care.com but everyone wants before and after care.  I never get weekend gigs.  We SO need extra money, so my hubs does roofing with his brother on his days off.  Right now we are trying to get extra money for our cruise in 30 days.

My fiance works about 60 hours a week and his commute is rediculous, like 1.5 to 2 hours one way. He is never home, so to ask him to get a second job, I would probably get a really dirty look from him. I am working a full time job and a part time job and go to school full time. I have been doing this since we got together. I offered to pick up an extra job a night or two a week just for the holidays for some extra cash to through towards bills and wedding stuff, but he wants me to use my little free time to focus on school. We are currently at a stand still until I graduate and are just trying to get bills and debt settled so after I graduate we can purchase our home.

I am.  Well, I was a sahm before.  I got a pt job to pay for the wedding.  Before, on fi’s salary alone with bills and stuff, we could barely afford a wedding.  Now we’re actually getting a ‘dream’ wedding.  Still on a tight budget (although fi doesn’t seem to think so).  Still gotta keep saving for the wedding but it’s nice to have some extra to go away for the weekend to relax.

I’ve pretty much always worked a second job… but now that money is defintely going to the wedding & honeymoon instead of general travel, shopping, going out, etc.

I picked up a second job to help pay for the wedding and Fiance has been doing odd jobs for people as well.

I barely can stand working 40 hours a week, so I probably would downsize majorly before I got another job!  LOL
