So with the rising cost of everything from gas & food to the ecomony being poor.... What are you doing to get by? Personally, I've cut back on non-essential things (new clothes, getting my nails done weekly, carwashes etc). I'm also driving my husband's car to/from work because it gets 33-35mpg. In addition, for "extra money," I've been trying to sell my artwork, (www.equibling.com) hand made soaps (www.freewebs.com/handmadesoap) and hatching eggs. Although at this point, I'll just have barely enough money from my artwork sales to renew my website for the next year, my soaps aren't selling because no one is buying them and my birds are just not laying (it's too freakin' hot!) But from what I did sell this summer, I was able to feed them for a few months but not put enough away to sustain them in later months. My husband is all for the bird thing, as long as they are earning their keep...and I'm hoping that once my chicks are older, they will by selling eating & hatching eggs... Anyway--what do you do to make a little extra money?? Anything? I can't imagine I'm the only one who is having issues in that department? Just curious.... Edited...I do work 40-50 hours per week (Monday-Friday). I've considered getting a weekend job, but right now, I'm taking college classes and really have no "extra" time.
