Agree with what has already been said and would just add, it's important to think long term. Getting two part time jobs now would perhaps help to fund your current lifestyle and maybe even give you enough money to save a little... that said, if you can take the time to get the right education to help you get a job in a field that you like and that pays well, it could be well worth it to take a small financial hit now for the long term benefit of a potentially more stable and fulfilling career.

On top of what Michael already said, not all part-time jobs provide full benefits. This can cost you in the long run. Instead, aspire to get a solid full-time job that comes with full benefits and maybe start working on a weekend gig to supplement your salary. Something flexible like Doordash or Uber can be very helpful since you get to make your own hours and work as needed.

Stephanie’s Answer

Agreed with with both Joe and Michael above. Take full account of what you are spending your money on. Without context on what you mean by big-spender, it is difficult to assess but are you spending on wants or on needs. Ex. Frequent dining out at high-end restaurants and bars, luxury vacations, expensive cars, etc. or spending on family groceries, utilities, etc. If the answer is spending on wants, I would first attempt to dial it back in those areas before considering taking on multiple part time jobs. If you do take on additional employment to reach this goal, all of the $ earned from this job should go directly toward it into a separate account and don't touch it. Otherwise with more cash in your bank account, you might just find yourself spending more on your 'wants'.
