Well even though the car is gone... so no insurance, repairs, parking gas we still are not doing well with the budget. So I told dh bring in more $ if you want to spend the same amount but useless spending to that amount shouldn't cut into the family budget for things we need, savings, debts etc.
And I don't want to be without a car forever so we have to start saving as well for that purchase atleast a proper downpayment.

So any ideas?
I suggested that dh could teach a night course, tutor...he's a computer guy but no ability for overtime at work.

I am taking my lifeguarding courses again so I could do that on weekends or nights and not have to get babysitter for three kids (ouch).

I guess I could take in kids after school (a full day child might be too much between the kids now) but I'd really need a car for that.

but mostly since its dh's smoking habit that is blowing 400 a month..sigh..

drug trials are interesting I have seen the adverts but he's a heavy smoker so that usually excludes them.... lol

sales is an interesting thing maybe a job at a computer/electronics type store...but he'd want to spend what he pulled in!
