I'm setting myself a goal... and it seems a little scary. I want to earn $200 in extra cash, and I want to see how quickly I can do it.
Just the other day Hubby's employer issued mandatory unpaid days off. Essentially a paycut, packaged up in a 3-day weekend each month.
Their hope was that the employees would be happy they had a long weekend to look forward to each month. Yea great, except for when you're already stretched too thin from the previous paycuts. All while the cost of living keeps increasing. (Yes, I'm bitter.)
Anyway, in an effort not to dwell on how much this sucks, I'm trying to kick myself in the butt to see how much extra money I can earn. Yea, this is in addition to what I already earn through this blog, taking paid surveys, and my various other ways of earning online.
So I'm setting a goal of $200, which certainly doesn't come close to the money we're losing, but hey, it's a start. Hopefully I can reach my goal... and get on to setting a new one soon enough.
How do I plan on earning $200? Well considering that I'm a stay at home mom to my two year old and four year old, I don't have a whole lot of options. My degrees in Psychology and in Marketing, as well as my Elementary Ed. background, won't do me too much good at the moment.
Tomorrow I'll post my plan, as it stands so far. I know you'll all be desperately waiting for the details...
