Welcome to Weekend Job Dot Org! There was a long period of time in my life where I was struggling to take care of the basic necessities of life. I was stressed. I was working 50 hours a week, and even with the overtime I was still an anxious wreck, because quite frankly the bills were getting paid but I was riding the line every time. I had to be careful about even getting fast food.
That is a ridiculous way to live, yet so many of us do it. Me and one of my coworkers became best friends in our financial struggles and we were constantly scheming up ways to make more money. We’d sit at McDonald’s or Burger King and stare out the window and dream up all kinds of ideas to make money. Of course, we were pounding out overtime during the week, so any more work we did had to be weekend job.
The Dream and Nightmare of Weekend Jobs
We would go on our lunch break at work and dream up a part time job we could tolerate. We thought about borrowing a truck and collecting pallets, collecting cans, borrowing weed eaters and mowers and starting a lawn service, etc. We had so many ideas. We could start a business, or we could join one. We could invent something, or sell someone else’s invention. You’d think we’d be too tired by the weekend to persevere into another job, but we were determined. Nothing was going to stop us from climbing out of the hole we were in. We were good, honest, earnest, hard workers. It would work out for us
Are Parttime Jobs the Answer?
Let me go ahead and toss out a real solution. We all know that trading our time for money kind of sucks, but we don’t really have other options. Part time work or night job is all we can do. We should do that to help out with the immediate situation, but please consider working on your resume and getting your qualifications together, otherwise we will always be stuck at the same level of income. You have to raise your worth in the workforce. But in the meantime, definitely consider that weekend employment.
Welcome to the Site!
Thanks for coming by. This site is a collection of all the crazy ideas me and my buddy had on those all too short lunch breaks from our factory job. We weren’t able to pursue all of them, but I figure that you guys will find something you prefer and go after it. Read them all and see what fits your style the most and could be done with the least effort using what you already have. A job search is a pain in the butt, so try to make it as painless as possible.
Night and Weekend Jobs Can Be Fun!
Consider some of your hobbies. If you get real creative about this, you can actually integrate your relaxing hobbies with your after-hours jobs to make sure you aren’t miserable the whole time. For instance, do you like to hunt? Imagine this, you’d be sitting in a tree stand on the weekends anyways, right? So why not do it a little extra, and take the meat home and slice it up and make beef or deer jerky. Do you realize how much you can sell jerky for? Right there is a great idea to make sure your extra jobs don’t absolutely suck. What else can we come up with?
Don’t Be Miserable at Your Job
There is no reason to hate your life for having to work your way out of a financial hole. You can figure out ways to earn money while having fun. Are you a teenager? Get a job at a local arcade or skatepark. Do you like to read and learn? Tutor children or take a job at the library. Are you an elderly person who loves to work on their arts and crafts? Then why not knit and crochet blankets and quilts and sell them. Some quilts can be sold for unbelievable amounts of money.
You see? Just be creative. The solution is out there. Don’t automatically default to something that would make you unhappy. You are in control of your life, but you must take the reigns and force it to go where you want it to go!
