I graduated college two years ago, was unemployed for a year, but now that I have a full time job, it seems like the student loans and bill payments are still a little suffocating. I've been thinking about money for a few months now--thinking of what I can cut or reduce from my budget--and now I've been thinking of ways to subsidize my paycheck. A couple of hundred dollars a month would be nice, but even fifty bucks a month would be a hell of an improvement. Right now I'm just on the cusp of being in the black.
Once things settle down with my life in a couple of weeks I'll put out a general call for commissions, but I'm not expecting much to come from that. I'm a writer, and I know what writers are worth, so I'll be charging 1/2 cent per word. I don’t have a very large following in the furry community, so I doubt story commissions are a viable and reliable source of income, even if I do manage to get a couple of bites from it.
So, here’s my question to all of you who have opened this journal article: would you be so kind to share some advice on how to make a few dollars more each month? Even advice on how to spend a little less would help.
Thank you in advance for your advice.
