I am sure this has been asked, but I am surely not the only one??? Tell your story...WHY do you work full-time? Do you like your job? What kind of hours? I am 25 years old and like I said in another post, I would basically be homeless if I didn't work full-time, even WITH the combined income (I am married). We recently bought a house, which makes money even tighter, but it's actually less stressful for me, because then I know the money isn't being thrown away (in my opinion). I like my full time job and I also work part time at a golf course (really easy cashiering-type job). My full-time job is at a good time, my shifts are 2-10pm or 4-midnight, so I can relax in the morning But I would work part-time IF I COULD. I mostly take on a full time job because the cost of living is pretty high and I am young.
