Sooo, as a lot of you know, I've been working two jobs for two years. It's been really rough on me physically and emotionally, so my doctor and therapist have suggested that I leave my retail job. I make enough money at my substituting job to get by, and I was only keeping the retail for extra spending cash for myself. This week is my last week. I'm not too stressed out about the switch (though summers will be more difficult just because I won't have income), but I've run into a snag.
See, the way my paychecks work with the schools is I fill out a timecard every month, and then at the start of the next month, I turn in my timecard. I don't see the payment for that timecard until the end of THAT month. So I don't see my paycheck for September's hours until the end of October. That's fine, except there's going to be a gap between my last paycheck from the craft store and my first paycheck for the school year.
I planned for this and set money aside, but it's basically only money for bills and such. No spending cash. It's not like I'll be in desperate need, but I would like to have a supplemental income during the next two months just to feel more comfortable.
What does this mean? I'll be doing some commission flash sales (small batches of commissions), opening up my etsy store again, trying out selling small adoptable designs, and who knows what else. I'll be making sale posts occasionally, so keep an eye out for those. I would really appreciate any support you guys can give me during this transitional time (emotional especially!) and if you guys have any ideas for sales I can do, please let me know! I will most likely be doing glittery badges, doodle portraits, and pixelart, maybe some watercolor paintings if I can manage.
In non-money news, this have been great for me and I have no real complaints. I hope you guys have been doing well!
