    Hey Guys,

    Well, its been a short week of subbing, so far only 1 day this week. I'm wondering what you guys do for money besides subbing. I'm finding subbing is not paying all the bills and now i have sister's wedding expenses. Just curious how you can afford to live on a sub salary??

    I work two additional jobs

    Hi! I live in a fairly large suburban area within three school districts that are super short on substiute teachers. So I work almost everyday unless I don't want to unless it is close to school vacations then I fall to about three days a week. I supplement my income by working two days a week at a local grocery store and a few nights a week at a local Sylvan Learning Center. So I am quite busy but on the other hand my schedules at Sylvan and subbing are such that if I need time off I just don't take a sub job or I ask for a day off from Sylvan. It works out pretty good for me. But I don't have a family to support. Right now it is just me and my cat!

    I'm 30 and still live at home with my mom. My 83-year-old grandfather and one of my uncles also lives with us. So, the majority of my needs are taken care of by my mom and grandfather.

    I work part-time at Huntington Learning Center and put in 13+ hours a week at times. They pay me $12 an hour so I tend to net a lot when I'm working my tail off there!
