The part-time gig:
As many of you may have guessed the part-time gig is retail. This is my first time in retail and it is not as bad as I anticipated.

Advantages:
Extra cash
Gets me out the house
Weight Loss (I have lost 10 pounds without much effort)

Disadvantages:
Less time to do other things (sleep, surf the net, sleep, sleep)
More time on the road

Overall, the advantages of the part-time gig out weighs the disadvantages. For this reason, I will continue as long as I can. Oh, the icing on the cake is a 10% raise that goes into effect today, because of a new position.

Lawd child, I commend you for working 2 jobs. I'm so lazy. I can barely stay sane with the one I have now. And I've noticed, the more I work, the less healthy I eat. So knowing me, I'd gain weight if I worked two jobs.

Single Ma before the unhealthy eating habits kicked in I bought some leane cuisine, and some lean pockets. They are fast and on the healthyish side. LOL

Bklyn Diva thanks! I get loads of discounts. The co. I work for has different stores so I get discounts at all of them. LMAOOOOOOOOO

Funky Fresh you might just end up looking like one of the BR manikins. LMOOOOO

I try keep my paycheck and not spend it. Now with the new position am not in the store so am not tempted to buy.

I'm working two jobs also. I notice that I'm less likely to overeat now. I also like knowing that I have two sources of income.

Congrats on the second gig. The two paycheck thing is addictive.
