When Waking Up At 2 In The Morning Will Save You Money

If you want to save money, get used to waking up at 2 in the morning. It will come and go. But when you wake up in the morning, you will feel less sleep deprived for at least several extra hours.

This is a topic that is rarely talked about. Most probably, you read that your night owls (those who sleep an average of 8 hours a night) will save money by working less but waking up earlier. But this is not the case. When working, the only way that this saves you money is if you have a part-time job. The rest of us just have to go to bed later, which leads to having to buy more coffee. So when it comes to saving money, you should really think about going to bed at the same time every night and try to stay a little later than your friends.

What Is A Part-Time Job?

You are a part-timer if you have a job that has 9-5 hours per day, 5 days per week. If you have a job like this, or if you live an hour away from a place like this, you should consider taking 2 jobs at once. The way this works is simple. Take the job that you work from 9-5 everyday, like I did when I was working as a retail clerk at Wal-Mart. Then just get up, get dressed, grab some breakfast and head to work 6-7 hours per day. This way for at least 8 hours per week, you will only wake up 2-3 hours before you need to start your next job at 6. So you don’t have to go to work earlier, you only have to go to work, which saves you money. If you work part-time, the biggest savings you will want to save are going to be from having to travel to work (assuming your employer offers you the choice). 

What Do You Want To Do?

The first thing you should do is figure out what you want to do. If the answer is “I want to find an apartment that is really really cheap”, the first step is looking into apartments that are within walking or bus distance from home. This will make your commute to work less of a walk of shame. It will get you away from your old work space, and your new office space. If you are lucky, this will get you on a fast rail to new things. 

If you want to be a full-time house wife, have a go at living with your parents. My mother actually was not too happy about me doing this, telling me that I had to get a job of some sort. She was a hard line person and wouldn’t let me do pretty much anything. If you are lucky enough to be offered one of these jobs, take it. You know you want to be doing this. If you don’t, move to LA or do something else that you really want to do. 

What Have You Done?

You have done absolutely nothing. You’re not working the part-time job. You don’t have any other responsibilities. You are not saving money. Everything is going absolutely perfectly. 

What I want to tell you to do is ask yourself, what have you got going on? Did you have one child at the start of the year? Did you have a child at the start of a year? What happened, you had a baby. What did you do? Had you got a part-time job? Did you travel to work? Did you go to a meeting? Did you leave the house? How did you stay on top of all this? That’s a lot of things to consider.

One thing that you can have a look at is what you have done so far this year.
