Landed another part time job.
I am going to be a product demonstrator at local grocery stores.
You know the person that gives out samples of products and tries to get you to impulse buy the product with a coupon.
I start this Saturday and hopefully if all goes well I will be able to do a couple of these a month.
All of this money is going for the Hawaii fund.
If I do just a couple a month that will be an extra $100-$125 a month.
