You'll have very uneven wear, your gas mileage will suffer, and it's possible it could affect handling or stability, especially in bad weather.
However, I haven't always had a bunch of money in my life, so in many circumstances I've had to get used tires or mismatched tires just to tide me over for a while. It won't do any permanent damage to the vehicle and as long as you're extra careful in bad weather you should be fine.
If at all possible, make sure you have the same model tires on each axle. Don't mismatch different size tires, and keep an eye out for excessive wear.
