Toyota Cooler Condenser

I have an '89 Toyota Truck, manual V6, and my cooler condenser appears to be shot (no cold air from the a/c and the pulley wobbles). This seems to make the engine work harder, run louder and my oil pressure drops when idling. I cannot afford to fix it right now and my question is; besides the obvious personal discomfort ( I live in Austin), how long can I drive my truck before it starts damaging the engine/electrical(?)/other components linked through the serpentine belt?
