Full Time and Part Time at the Same Time

Hello,

I'm currently considering getting a part time job to bring in some extra income into our home. I've thought about it for awhile now but the only issue is my full time job. I have a schedule of 9-5p and sometimes 9-7p. I used to be worried about overload and if my schedule would allow me to work two jobs. Now I don't think I have a choice but to get a second job. I'd rather do something from home so I wouldn't have to worry about childcare. My husband works too but bringing in a third income would be a lot easier for the family. Since we basically live paycheck to paycheck and it's not easy to save money.

Does anyone here work a full time and a part time job? How is that working for you?

Re: Full Time and Part Time at the Same Time

I'm living this right now...I feel like I am rarely home.. it's the missing parties, a son's Prom last month (just wanted to see them!) ... this bothers me the most.... I am handling Ok.. I took on this job not for the money.. but for the health benefits.. if I was in your shoes.. I would do anything / everything possible to tighten your budget - so your life / his life can be less stressful..

Managing your time will be very important -taking on this many hrs.. as much so as managing your money...or it will seem all you are doing is working.. working .. working!

Being too busy can bring it's own set of problems.. my husband tells me I am more grouchy (It's true!)... I had my 1st accident a month + ago.. not thinking, being in a heated rush due to leaving one job.. had to get home cook for the family -had an hour.. then get to my next job ....here I was backing out of a driveway, not thinking and WHAM.. I rammed this ladies hood- jacked it up real nice... sucked big time.. had I not been in such a rush that day.. I bet I'd still have my impeccable record of never causing an accident.. oh well.

A couple old threads here -with some ideas ....
