The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Stephanie:
I few years ago I discovered my love for Old Navy. They have nice prices but don't necessarily give out lots of coupons and discounts, so I decided to get a part time job there to receive the employee discount.
I only worked 2 days a month and it was actually quite refreshing for me, it was a nice getaway. I made money and also received 30% off all purchases in addition to whatever sales and discounts were going on. It was just a great way to keep up a nice wardrobe for my son who was only a few months at the time, and for me who was on my quest of losing 80 pounds!
The key is it only being a part time job. Its not meant to overwhelm you or interfere with your life. If they can't work with your schedule and only give you a few days a month then I would say its not worth it.
Also, this isn't something to “feed” a shopping problem, it can be used for everything you need … A job at a toy store for christmas presents, a job at Kohls to decorate your house, a job at Ikea for furniture, a job at Best Buy for a new computer… You can apply it anywhere.
