Newspaper Route?

On Friday nights, we usually get the classified section of the Sunday paper in early delivery. I was just scanning through it, and in great big letters it said they needed a rural route carrier (by car) for this paper in our little city. $900/2 weeks.

Holy crap! $1800 a month?

I showed it to dh and he called to get info - left a message. I'm hoping that he's one of the first messages when this guy gets back on Monday.

If it's in the car, and if it doesn't involve having to put the papers in plastic baggies (it said "tube delivery", which I'm hoping means that the paper goes in the little plastic newspaper box next to the mailbox) -- dh could do this. With minimal pain.

It would mean so much to have a job for him. It's a long story, but he is disabled and hasn't been able to work outside the home, and doesn't get soc sec disability because we were stupid about the laws (some 9 months in court to find that out...). The $1800/month is before expenses...but jeez. I'd be delighted with half of that if it got him out of the house and feeling better about things.

And think of what that could do for our snowball...

Hi there! Just came across your blog, love it!!!

Good luck with the paper route, hopefully that is something your husband can do - $1800 a month can sure put a dent in your debt!!
