Manifesting Money 

Make extra money with a part-time job or side hustle.

This post was originally made last year, and my own situation has changed since then. But the information is still solid. The holidays often bring extra bils or responsibilities, and an extra side hustle can bridge the budget gap. Read on: Another side hustle I started another job last week. I signed on to do janitorial work after hours in a nearby company. The job starts right after my childcare position ends in the afternoon, and I arrive back home after 10 pm.
