It might not always be Saturday, but I am pretty sure it is frequently evening time on the show.
I figure Giles is giving them some financial help - indeed he might be bankrolling the entire house - he seemed to have a sweet country pad in England. Way back when we learned about GIles's rebellious youth I always assumed he came from a wealthy and priviledged background - that's what he was rebelling againsts. Also remember that he was a total layabout in Season 4 and was able to survive quite well. I'm thinking he has investments and trust funds and all that kind of stuff ferreted away.
Did he actually BUY the Magic Shop in S5? If so, perhaps there was an insurance payout after the place got trashed by Willow.
And as for Xander - isn't he a supervisor-type? Maybe he just pops in now and then to see how work is going, but doesn't really need to be on-site all the time.
