30 Something Moms 30 Something Moms
My family is more than struggling in the financial department. Dh was out of work for a year and that really hurt us. I know we are not alone in this situation, but sometimes it feels like we are.
So here's the situation. I have two jobs - one where I work Monday & Thursday 5-9 pm; one where I work Sat 8 - 7 & Sun 10 - 6. I've been offered a third job where I will be working Monday - Friday 7:45 - 2:15. My question is this - do I work all three jobs and be thankful for the extra money OR work the two weekday jobs to have the weekends off OR work the full time weekday job and the part time weekend job to be home every week night by 3:30? Decisions, decisions.
Please advise me. :)

Which ones pay more? I'd have a hard time choosing between having weekends off or being home for dinner every week night, myself.

The weekend job pays more, but it is also further away.

I've been at the weekend job for four years...it would be so nice to have the weekends off.

How much is each job paying?

You could work all 3, as long as you can get a few days off every other week or so.  I worked a job for a year and a half where I worked 9 hrs a day 6 days a week, 7 during the holidays.  I was mentally and physically exhausted during the holidays.

Could you switch the hours on the weekend job to every other weekend off, and work those evening during the week?

Like  PP said, take the job at your daughter's school until you get caught up. Then dump the weekend job once things get settled. That's what I'd do. 

Or try to find a whole new job that offers benefits and good hours.

I agree.

If I were you take the weekends off to be with family and some relaxation from working.

  I would say, have the weekend off to spend times with your hubby and your kid(s)
