How many jobs do you have?

Hi all, in an attempt to make extra cash I've just signed up for a 20hr a week work from home job. I do a 35hr a week job Mon-Fri and I also do graphic design with a freelance company (the money's not amazing there though!)

Yet I still wish I could do more :rotfl:

How many jobs do you all have and do you feel it's enough?

    Just one! and yes it's enough. with all the travelling, looking after DS, cooking from scratch and ebaying I don't think I could cope if I had to work any more. Personally I'd rather make more savings. That's just me though and I'm totally in awe of your three jobs! well done.

    I have none at the moment and feel its plenty, obviously circumstances are different as I'm home with 2 toddlers all day and oh may have nights out with his job so the cost of childcare doesnt make it worth working at all - have been there and tried that. However I do do voluntary work for homestart so I'm not completely idle!

    2 - 18.5 hours office job and then as many hours as I can handle on AQA to make up the money. I also do very occasional mystery shops.

    Checking quidco, pigsback, onepoll etc could almost be a job in itself!

    I'm going to job the third job (graphic design) as the money is dire for the work. I agree that Quidco, Pigsback etc (plus all the comping I do) is easily a job in itself....luckily job no1 is quiet and I do it all on company time ;)

    I guess with me the only way I am not actually worrying about money is when I'm earning it :(

    I have one FT job in the office and another FT job at home with the 2 boys aged 3 and 13 months.

    I did take on another job before DS2 was born and it involved working an extra 20 hours - 2 10 hour shifts at the weekend. Needless to say i only survived for 3 months.

    I have worked the odd night in the chip shop but more as cover than being a permanent person. I only did this when i was on maternity leave though.

    I'm ebaying a lot at the moment and I also deliver the phone book and yellow pages but that's only an extra 2 days a year.

    I wouldn't mind doing the odd shift in the chippy again though but OH works nights so i can't get a babysitter

    I work 35hrs as an administrator, but just recently started a cleaning job. I do 2 hours each morning, 6 days a week. I've been doing it a few weeks now and it was bleeding hard at first but I'm adjusting.

    I have to say that the incentive is seeing the funds deposited into my account each week and that I've been able to pay extra towards my outstanding DEBTS - which total over £30,000:eek:
