At 3.6%, the unemployment rate is pleasantly low, but that doesn’t mean people are making enough money in their jobs. Tons of Americans rely on both their full-time jobs and a side hustle to make ends meet.

Check out: stimulus updates you need to know for summer 2022

Balancing two gigs can be extremely stressful, especially if you’re also raising young children.

The key is to find a side gig that doesn’t feel like work, said Matthew Warzel, CPRW, president of MJW Careers, LLC.

“Something that’s not too time consuming, but also worth the amount of revenue per successful project completion,” Warzel said. “An ideal goal to start with is to first offset all the expenses you’ve incurred since starting, and then focus on small goals. Maybe $1,000 a month…then up to $1,500, $2,000, etc.

And if you have any doubts, remember that no one can hustle like a parent.

“Moms and dads know how to do a task well and quietly if it’s nap time, whether they’re a driver, a short-term cook, a cleaner, a teacher, a budgeter, a personal shopper, a waste management specialist or a human breeder,” said David Attard, digital consultant and web designer at Collectiveray.

With that in mind, let’s explore 10 of the best side gigs for busy, active parents of young kids.

CEDAR FALLS – Tucked away in a residential neighborhood on a brick street is a beloved consignment store that has stood the test of time for just over 37 years.

However, Gilgen’s Consignment Furnishings at 115 W. 16th St. will not reach 40. The owner has decided that his last day of business will be Thursday.

“It’s just time. I’m getting older and it’s the right thing to do,” said Jim Gilgen, 66, of Cedar Falls.






Gilgen’s Consignment Furnishings is located inside the historic building at 115 W. 16th St. that once housed a well-known grocery store.

In the summer of 1985, Gilgen, with the help of her parents, opened her doors in the historic building that once housed the longtime grocery store Hart’s Food Center.

Gilgen grew up in Akron, Ohio, but said her father, Albert, moved his family from Beloit, Wisconsin, to Cedar Falls in 1975 after taking a job at the University of Northern Iowa, where Albert would continue. to serve as a leader. from the psychology department.

The West 16th Street building is well over a century old, having been built in the early 1900s. It’s a place Gilgen literally calls home, as his living quarters are just upstairs.

Cedar Falls accepts no excuses for fireworks set off outside permitted hours after ban lifted

Between noon and 11 p.m. on July 4 and noon to 10 p.m. on July 3 and 5, fireworks will be permitted on private property, not in public spaces like parks or sidewalks.

Asked what has changed over the years, Gilgen said antiques don’t get the same attention they did decades ago.

An antique oak display case that sold 25 years ago for a mere $1,000 – one of his biggest sales ever – would now fetch Gilgen around $300, he said. declared.

On the contrary, the “hot” products have been retro items.

The store has everything on the ground floor and inside its basement, from paintings and furniture to jewelry, toys, flowerpots, t-shirts, mugs, lamps and much more.

A constant has been the many repeat customers and reliable shippers.

“A lot of people enjoyed coming here to get away from everyday life,” Gilgen said. “And it was just relaxing.”

He recalled older people picking up an object, being overwhelmed with nostalgia, and saying, “I remember having this when I was a kid.”

And Gilgen personally enjoyed finding merchandise “that you won’t see every day.”

Since deciding his last day would be Thursday, Gilgen has marked down items and made a noticeable dent in his inventory.

Anything not sold by the end of Thursday will go to shippers.

The store has been open six days a week for decades. Its current hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, but at one point, Gilgen said, it stayed open until 7 p.m.

The 1990s marked a turning point in consumer culture. But with the world in the throes of runaway inflation and Britain enduring a summer of discontent, it feels like we’re living in a 1970s economy.

90s nostalgia has been building for quite some time. Bold logos, which disappeared after the financial crisis, have made a comeback. Burberry Group Plc has even revived its trademark black, white, beige and red plaid, a rehabilitation of the plaid worn by Oasis’ Liam Gallagher in the 1995 music video for “Wonderwall.” Y2K, inspired by outfits from the mid-90s to the early 2000s, is now a fashion category in its own right.

But lately, the clamor for all things 90s, especially the early years, has intensified.

In fashion, the smiley face, a potent symbol of late 80s and early 90s British rave culture, has recently been affixed to everything from socks to designer handbags to clothing. furnishing. The Clarks Wallabee boot, a favorite among ravers and the Manchester band scene, was the sixth most fashionable men’s item in the first quarter of this year, according to the Lyst Index. Bucket hats, which have received a luxurious makeover, topped previous Lyst indexes, which measure searches on the fashion platform and other sites, as well as social media engagement .

And just this week, Beyonce released her single “Break My Soul,” featuring the bouncy beats and piano riffs that are characteristic of house music. Some of the tracks from Drake’s new album “Honestly, Nevermind” are also reminiscent of dance tunes from the era.

It is perhaps the fear of recession that drives today’s obsession with all things the early 1990s. The period was characterized by a dismal economy and skyrocketing unemployment. large scale, although Beyonce’s track is more an ode to the Great Resignation than a wake-up call about layoffs. Caution about the global economy is certainly growing. The latest forecast from the New York Federal Reserve puts the chance of a recession, or “hard landing,” at 80%.

And yet this anxiety comes against a backdrop of joy at being able to socialize again. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why the euphoria of the early 90s dance scene resonates.

While the harbingers of recession are flashing, the immediate problem is inflation, at its highest level in 40 years on both sides of the Atlantic. As Mohamed A. El-Erian has pointed out, the current situation mirrors the 1970s, with its winter of discontent, stagflation, real wage resistance and strikes. The similarities don’t end there: The S&P 500 index is on course for its worst first half since 1970, while the prospect of gas rationing in Europe this winter resembles power outages in the previous era.

There are also signs that the decade is making its way into consumer culture.

Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, has long incorporated 1970s design codes, such as wider trousers and lapels, as well as bold prints. But there are signs that more bohemian and sleazy aesthetics are gaining traction.

Just look at the outfits worn recently by Harry Styles, many of them from the brand owned by Kering SA. This week, Gucci unveiled a collection with styles with resolutely 70s accents.

Other relics from the era have popped up, including wide leg jeans, crochet and patchwork. Online searches for rattan bedroom furniture at UK department store John Lewis are double what they were a year ago. There are even crossover hits from the 1970s and 1990s – platform shoes (high on the Lyst Index) and clogs can be found everywhere from Versace and Hermes International to Christian Dior’s collaboration with Birkenstock.

Meanwhile, world-renowned music group Abba are making a comeback with their Voyage 2022 tour. They’ll be playing as digital avatars, giving the 1970s a very 21st-century feel.

Consumer-facing businesses expect the economic outlook to deteriorate this fall as energy costs weigh heavily and pandemic-related savings are depleted by a summer of travel. It’ll be worth watching if any other ’70s trends pop up in stores, restaurants, and streaming services. Flares and fondue, anyone?

Perhaps consumers’ reluctance to embrace the period as much as the 90s and early 2000s is because the 70s was simply the decade that style forgot about. Even today, fashion looks inspired by the era are difficult to achieve. Moreover, for Gen Z, the 90s represent an almost mythical happy place, before the perils of social media. That might explain why they want to go back to it rather than the 70s. The price hikes and blackouts are a lot less fun.

Wearing multiple sweaters to stay warm this winter and having to buy Lidl’s cheapest toilet paper will be bad enough. The prospect of doing so in a shiny bell-bottomed jumpsuit is even more horrifying.

The cleaning experts at One Crazy House have put together a list of items people can use to help with the dusting process.

One of those items happens to be fuzzy textured chenille socks.

At first glance, oversized chenille socks might seem like just what you need to keep your feet warm and cozy.

Turns out they’re actually pretty good at something else, too.

Fluffy chenille socks come in handy when it comes to dusting your furniture and floors.

If you run out of Swiffer dusters, you don’t need to rush to the store to replace them.

Fluffy chenille socks can be slipped over the bottom of your Swiffer and used instead.

All you have to do is wash the socks when you’re done Swiffering and reuse them in the future.

Cleaning with socks instead of Swiffer dusters is also a smart way to save money.

Each time you buy a box of 18 Swiffer dusters at Walmart, it will cost you $13.37.

A pair of fluffy chenille socks are $4.99 at Walmart and can be used over and over.

Collectors of vintage advertisements look for bright colors and eye-catching graphics. And who would have more vibrant colors than a dye company? Few people buy fabric dyes outside of craft projects today, but most families wore homemade clothes in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Clothing was made to last, and items were often repaired or remade several times before being retired. People bought dyes for home use to make their own clothes or to give old clothes a new look.

Diamond Dyes, a prominent dye company circa 1900, is known for its advertising. Their business cards, advertising brochures and showcases are particularly popular with collectors today.

Tefal sale at Grassroots’ Club offers up to 85% off kitchen utensils and electrical appliances

After years of cooking the family’s favorite meals and doing most of the household chores, not only is mom tired, but her oft-used appliances have probably started to wear out as well.

Image courtesy of Tefal

While Mom’s trusty wok and vacuum cleaner have kept us well fed and our rooms spotless for all these years, it might be time for an upgrade.

Fortunately, Tefal is hosting a warehouse sale at the Grassroots’ Club, offering huge discounts on various kitchen utensils and appliances like steam irons and vacuum cleaners.

With discounts of up to 85% and some items for as little as S$5, you could end up walking away with a huge loot not just for mom, but for yourself too.

Here are some of the items on offer that you can get your hands on for sale.

Wide range of kitchen utensils for meals worthy of a Michelin star

Although we love to eat out once in a while, there’s just something about mom’s cooking that makes her number one in our hearts.

Since her beloved woks and pans are probably all stirred and scraped, mom would surely appreciate some shiny new kitchen utensils to prepare her famous dishes.

This Clear Cook 5-Piece Cookware Set includes a stockpot with a glass lid, wok pan, frying pan, and spatula, so mom can get the full upgrade.

Tefal Clear Cook 5-Piece Cookware Set – S$45 (up to S$190)

Each item has a durable non-stick coating inside and out, so cleaning up oil and other food residue doesn’t require superhuman strength.

The pot and pans also have TefalExclusive Thermo-Signal technology, which indicates when the ideal temperature to start cooking has been reached.

Mom is too expert at overcooking anything, of course, but having extra help never hurts.

Multi-functional rice cooker saves time and prepares many dishes

Pots and pans aside, a must-have item in every Asian household is the humble rice cooker. They don’t make them like they used to anymore, and in this case, that’s actually a good thing.

While we’re all grateful to Mom’s old rice cooker for giving the family years of fragrant rice and porridge, today’s rice cookers can do so much more than that.

The Fuzzy Logic Mini Rice Cooker has not one, not two, but 11 functions to help mom cook a full dinner with just one appliance.

Tefal Mini Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker – S$60 (up to S$179)
Image courtesy of Tefal

As it can be used for steaming and reheating, Mom can prepare meat and vegetables as well as reheat dishes she has prepared in advance.

It can be programmed to delay cooking for up to 24 hours, so if mom has a busy day running errands, she can stick a dish in there and cook it just in time for dinner.

Less time spent cooking means more time catching up on the latest K-drama together, so we consider this an absolute win.

Compact baking machine for perfect desserts after every meal

Once mom is done preparing the main course, it’s time for dessert. After all, every hearty meal should end on a sweet note, but baking can sometimes be a battlefield.

In addition to taking longer, mom’s buttercake can still go up in smoke thanks to hard-to-control factors like a slight miscalculation of ingredients or inaccurate oven temperatures.

Tefal‘s Cake Factory Delices is a baking device that comes with five programs that automatically adjust baking time and temperature. No more opening the oven to a puff of black smoke or biting into undercooked dough.

Tefal Cake Factory Délices – S$99 (up to S$459)

With it, mom can easily make brownies, cakes, muffins, meringues and milk desserts. She can also choose to switch the machine to manual mode if she wants complete control.

If you’re bringing the kids for some quality time with Ah Ma, the Cake Factory Delices offers the perfect opportunity to turn baking into a fun and safe family activity for toddlers with its easy-to-use controls and handles. cold. .

The thrill of making your own treats from scratch will definitely beat the sugar rush you get from consuming them.

2-in-1 handheld vacuum to grab dirt and dust from every corner

Once the work is done in the kitchen and everyone has a full stomach, it’s time to tidy up the place.

Vacuuming is a chore that can weigh heavily on mom, depending on the size of your home and the weight of the machine.

Being the meticulous housekeeper that she is, Mom can often spot dust as soon as she walks into a room and wouldn’t want to miss a single spot.

With its lightweight frame and versatile design, the Dualforce 2-in-1 handheld vacuum meets mom’s needs for quick cleaning without tiring her out.

Tefal Dualforce 2-in-1 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner – S$110 (up to S$299)
Image courtesy of Tefal

It can be used as a cordless vacuum cleaner or as a handheld vacuum cleaner to navigate all kinds of surfaces at home.

Its high-performance lithium-ion battery gives it a runtime of up to 45 minutes, while an integrated LED light will be a great help in removing the smallest particle of dirt under furniture or low-light areas.

Even if you’re just planning to give it as a gift to mom, you might find yourself “borrowing” the vacuum cleaner more frequently once you see it in action.

Steam iron for easier and faster laundry sessions

Once the floor is spotless, it’s time to take care of the fresh laundry.

With such a pile of ironing to do, it’s obvious Mom is using a more durable and powerful steam iron that makes it easier to stamp out the creases.

Thanks to the continuous steam output of the Easygliss Plus steam iron and its powerful steam boost, it will be able to tackle stubborn creases with less slippage, even on thicker fabrics.

Tefal Easygliss Plus steam iron – S$35 (up to S$109)
Image courtesy of Tefal

Once the water is poured in, mom can start ironing almost immediately thanks to the iron’s fast heat-up time.

You won’t have to worry about buying her a new iron soon after, because the Easygliss Plus’ soleplate is durable and scratch-resistant, so mom can use it for years to come.

With such ease of use, even you can help with the ironing once in a while.

The warehouse sale is 3 minutes walk from Yio Chu Kang MRT

The items highlighted above are just a small fraction of what to expect at Tefal warehouse sale. You can also browse the ranges of non-stick cookware, blenders, laundry care products, vacuum cleaners and cookware.

Depending on what time you’re there, you’ll find different items priced at just S$5, including the Blendforce Blender + Grinder (up to S$89.90), the Pocket Power Hair Dryer (up to 32 S$.00) and the Cookware Expertise 16cm Saucepan (UP S$89.00) during specific time slots.

Tefal Blendforce 2 Blender + Grinder – S$5 (up to S$89.90)

If you’re planning on really splurging on something for mom, you can expect the Top Spenders contest, where the top two customers who spend the highest amount on a single receipt each day of the sale will be rewarded with over $1. 000 S$ value of price.

To qualify, all you need to do is shop around and submit your receipt.

Give Mom Time and Convenience

When we give Mom practical gifts like these, what we’re really giving her is time and energy savings.

As mom ages, these are undoubtedly two of the most valuable resources she has.

A gift for mom is also a gift for the whole family, especially when you manage to ease her burdens and make her smile.

Who knows? Perhaps the process of teaching him how to use all of his new “toys” can also be a golden opportunity to bond.

This post has been brought to you in collaboration with Tefal.

The complaint alleges Costco executives’ fiduciary duties to Costco and its shareholders in compelling Costco to abuse chickens through inhumane practices in violation of the law and with full knowledge of their wrongdoings. But the plaintiff shareholders are not looking for money. What they want is for Costco executives to be permanently banned from continuing to force the company to raise its chickens in the allegedly illegal way. They also seek access to Costco’s chicken farms from time to time because the plaintiff shareholders believe it is necessary to ensure legal compliance in Costco’s chicken farming practices. In addition, they want executives to reimburse Costco for all damages and liabilities (such as fines imposed by government authorities) that may arise because Costco broke the law, as well as court costs and legal fees for plaintiff shareholders. .

As reasonable as all of this may sound, it may nevertheless be a huge demand on Costco and its other shareholders, some of whom, presumably, have invested in Costco based on its current business model, which takes into account the fact that Costco has invested hundreds of millions in its current chicken production system, the legality of which is in issue here, via Law Street Media. A victory for the plaintiffs could mean a better life for the chickens, but if Costco’s ability to continue charging $4.99 per chicken depends on this system, changes are required. could spell losses for Costco. That said, here’s why Costco’s stock may be particularly resilient among retailers.

This Free Dump Day collection is limited to furniture, appliances, tires (limit 9 per load) and other large and bulky household items. No building materials, business waste, electronic waste, mattresses, hazardous waste, treated wood waste or asbestos of any type will be accepted. Clean California Dump Days are open to all area residents.

This is part of a series of Dump Days planned for Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake and Mendocino counties. Future events include the communities of Crescent City and Blue Lake. Don’t forget to secure your cargo.

Dump Day events are held to advance the Department’s goal of keeping California’s highways and waterways waste-free as part of the Clean California initiative.

Visit the Clean California website to learn more about how Clean California is transforming communities with free dump days to keep trash from reaching our roads and waterways. For general questions about this event, please contact Ryan Madraind at (707) 498-5174.
