I agree with Shawnn. If the field you are working in doesn't require a skill set that puts you in high enough demand to earn enough to support yourself on only 40 hours, you either have to develop a skill set that is in higher demand, and thus pays more, or work more than the minimal 40 hours.
When I began my first business, I worked and average of more than 100 hours per week. It was hard, but over time through marketing, education, and targeted service development, I developed a demand for my skills so that people were willing to pay me more for my time, and thus, I could work less hours to support myself.

Sometimes one must work more than full time. When my kids were little, and money tight, I worked 2 jobs (one full time, one part time, total 60 hours/week) and hubby worked 80 hours/week.
Perhaps its time to get a second job, or pare down your spending.
