Not getting ahead but not sinking

March 13th, 2019 at 11:11 am

No real changes. We have rescheduled the garage sale due to weather. No one will come in the rain...not worth it. No extra income yet. I am contemplating DoorDash (food delivery). I work in a very populated, trendy area and I might be able to work a couple of shifts on my way home. Will it be worth it? Estimated $15/ hour for 3 hours for 2-3 days? And I am responsible for taxes, fuel, and wear and tear on my car? I wish I could just work a pt job with my taxes taken out and no driving. Or I wish I could work 40 hours at my job instead of 35. Which is not an option...already asked. I need to figure something out.

    Hope you can get good weather to have your garage sale.

    You might ask people you know about odd jobs. Sometimes people want someone to come and do something on a one time basis.

    If you are not able to make ends meet working a 35-hour week job, would you consider finding a better paying job? Do you feel you could make more money in your field if you changed jobs? Of course, things like affordable health insurance are important to consider too. Perhaps you have that where you are now. I'm sorry you're having such a tough time.

    Have you thought of mystery shopping?

    Trendsource (https://www.thesourceagents.com/Account/Login) has grocery shops
    Marketforce (https://shopper.marketforce.com/#/login) has grocery, fast food, gas station (and other) shops

    Here's a list of official companies https://www.mysteryshopforum.com/companies/

    Maybe start signing up with the top 15 and see what they have in your area? If you shop for things you already need (gas, groceries, etc) then you can reduce your spending somewhat and earn a little on top of that.

    I write here (http://www.projectbeachlife.com/find-phone-and-web-mystery-shops/) about how to find web and phone shops once you've already signed up with some companies. Again, each shop isn't a ton of money, but you can do them from home and not have to put any money out up front.

    Hopefully the weather clears up. Have you thought about any work from home gigs?
