In the first three months we have been able to make an extra $1,185. I’m pretty happy with that. We have to make money in unconventional ways since my work hours are too variable to get a regular part time job and my wife needs to be able to stay home with the children (i.e. daughter number one has missed 17 days of school because of sickness). So to be able to make that kind of money through a couple of substitute teaching days, surveys, blogging, and a few funerals (not a fun way for a Pastor to make money for sure) that is great.
Unfortunately most of the money has gone for medical and car expenses, but hey, at least we had it to pay those bills! Maybe this next quarter we can put aside some money in our emergency fund.
How do you make extra money, and where have you spent it (or saved it)?
