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'.
