  • We own a Carpet Cleaning business. DH also is still a door to door salesman for Verizon Fios (it's good money), but since we;ve landed a few big commercial contracts and we are bidding for others we are considering leaving Fios by Summer.

    I sell on ebay when I have time, but that's usually for my own personal ebay spending money!

  • Oh and since the carpet cleaning business bores me, and I don't want to manage it forever I just started taking Nutrition courses and I hope to become a certified personal trainer in the Fall.

  • My DH has 2 jobs, he's a mechanic & a security guard. I work as recruiter for a staffing agency. My DH also gets a little income from the GI bill for going to school. It sounds like we'd be doing pretty well, but we have so many freaking bills from when we were both unemployed and was not receiving any income at all (not even unemployment), 2 years ago, we racked up a lot of debt, so now with all the money we have coming in, we are still struggling.
