The Most Profitable Part-Time Job for Single Moms

Bartending is by far the most profitable part-time job for single mothers.  Despite what you may think, it is a fact that bartending will provide financial stability for broke single parents.

Mom Bartender's Make Lots of Money
Yes, take it from someone who is a single mother, full time student, and part-time bartender herself.  Tending bar provides my family with enough money to cover rent, all other bills, food, clothing, fun stuff, and even enough for savings. 

Some may be turned off by the idea of single moms part-time bartending because of some social stigmas or stereo-types associated with bartenders.   These views are outdated and don't merit judgements in today's day and age.  We are 21st century women providing for our families the best way we can, what is more courageous than that?  You are entitled to your opinions, but try to keep an open mind and let me explain why bartending is the most profitable part-time job for single moms.

Pay for Text Books with Amazon Mechanical Turk

The Internet offers many creative work possibilities for broke college students.  One such creative work possibility is Amazon's Mechanical Turk.  Amazon Mechanical Turk is a great money earning opportunity for college students and single parents alike.  Personally, I earn enough money with MTurk to pay for my text books.   

The average College Student pays anywhere between $300-$500 per semester for text books.  This is a HUGE personal expense a for a single mother such as myself.  What's worse is that there is no layaway or pay as you go option for text books.  Students must pay in one huge chunk.  I have discovered an easy way to save up money for college text books and cut your out of pocket expense in half. Now I'm sharing the secret with you.

Save Money for Summer Vacation

Summer is fast approaching and dreams of vacation are dancing around in the heads of college students and graduates alike. Manys dreams of vacation will be dashed upon the rocks of reality when they realize how much a vacation actually costs!  Vacations are a luxury item, not a need. 

Personally, I have not been able to afford a vacation in over 6 years, but this year will be different.  This year I have the extra money available to spend on a much deserved vacation.  The best part is, I'll be paying for the entire trip with the extra money I've earned and saved.

Cut Costs by Shopping out of Season

I firmly believe that no one should pay full price for ANYTHING! 

During my personal quest toward an even more frugal lifestyle, I have learned that 90% of the time, there is a coupon, promo code, discount, sale, or clearance price that may be applied to an item; reducing it's full price.  If you wait long enough for this to happen, you can reap some hefty savings. 

An Item will NOT stay the same price while in circulation simply because of supply and demand.  When suppliers supply too much merchandise for an item that does not equally reflect the true demand for that item, we end up with fabulous places like Overstock.com.  Stores like TJ Max, for example, sell dresses at least 50% off the original ticket price. 

Is the 50% off dress 50% less the quality it once was when it's price was at 100%? NO WAY!

I recently strolled through Walmart's after Christmas inventory and found everything I needed to wrap presents for next year at 75% off the original price.  Sure I'll have to store it until the time I need it, but I would much rather spend a little money now and store the item VS waiting until the week before Christmas next year and have no other choice but to pay full price. 

I have been using the "Save & Store" method for my clothes shopping with great results.
