I've decided I want to do something to make a little extra "cushion" every month. And I'm not talking about my ass (believe me, I've got that area covered), I'm talking about money.
Being a teacher who is married to a teacher does not exactly mean that el dinero is pouring in. Each month we get a set amount, and we only get paid once, on the 25th of each month.
First of all, let me just say that getting paid once a month totally sucks. Couple that with not getting paid very much once a month, and we've got problems.
I know that I helped to create the lack of extra cash problem myself: KK and I did buy a house that was a little over our price range, but we figured we were investing in our future, and that decision was not one that I regret or feel uncomfortable with at all. I've got a gorgeous home that I can raise lots of chillens' in...I just want a little bit of some extra money to actually buy something for me once in awhile. I mean, you should see my bras and underwears, they are not doing a sufficient job at this point.
So friends, what should I do? I don't want to actually work at a physical 2nd job, like a bookstore or something. With working on my master's degree and teaching, it's just not feasible for my sanity to have to leave one job and go to another.
I want to do something that I can do from home, or sell something, like MaryKay (not really MaryKay, I'm not the face of makeup or beauty) but an at-home sales rep or something. I'm looking to make around $500 a month. Something that won't take up too much time, and doesn't require a constant commitment. I am very friendly and outgoing, and would feel comfortable doing just about anything... I just need some ideas to get me started in the right direction.
It better be good too: seriously, you do not want me to start posting pictures of my horribly neglected underwear drawer.
