  • You say "extra" income, so I assume you already have a job. I see two options: 1. Adjust your lifestyle to what your income is with the job you currently have (so if you decided to get a second job, it would be strictly for savings/getting ahead,). If adjusting to your current income isn't possible: 2. You have to get a second job. Working from home may not be an option. Take what you can get because you can still keep looking.

    If you are having budget issues, I highly recommend The Dave Ramsey Show. Seriously! You can watch it on Hulu if you don't have cable.

  • There is no such thing as the right income. You have to live on less than you make and save a little each paycheck.

  • It's really a matter of budgeting. It's rough living paycheck to paycheck, but you can get ahead. Believe me I know. We are doing better now since I lost my job and could only find a new one if I took a $2.00/hour pay cut. It's amazing what you can make work when you have to. We now wonder where we spent the extra money when I was making more each month because we are still making it now and putting money in savings each month.
