so grad school and a kid have turned out to be very expensive enterprises when combined together, especially in conjunction with financial goals that add up to more than just breaking even every month. i've got a really ambitious budget that involves putting away a substantial amount per month. and for various reasons that's simply not getting done. some of it's frivolous spending, some of it's unavoidable bills (our new insurance is absolute garbage and two quick doctors visits landed us $300 in out-of-pocket medical expenses just like that.)
i've been debating picking up some part-time work on the side to try to plug up some of the holes and cover expenses that keep popping up. anybody have thoughts on flexible options? i've tossed around everything from contracting with uber to seeing if i can land a gig bartending in charlotte a night or two a week when i'm down there, or getting on a lunch shift somewhere.
i've been slowly re-watching breaking bad too, so i'm also open to doing shady stuff.
