Amanda Bynes has a plan ... she wants to sling drinks.
Sources connected to Amanda tell TMZ ... she wants "a normal life," and she believes working in a bar would achieve that goal.
Amanda says she's well aware of the obvious impediment -- she attracts so much attention it would be hard to function as a bartender.
As for why Amanda is even thinking of getting a job ... she desperately needs money. She doesn't have access to her $5.7 million fortune because of her conservatorship, and only gets between $50 and $100 a day. As for what she wants to do with the money, aside from getting an apartment, she wants plastic surgery because she thinks she's ugly.
We know 2 people from The Canyon Treatment Center -- where Amanda went for rehab -- have reached out to her and offered her a place to stay.
