Hello, I don't know if I will get any responses, but I guess I will try anything. I am going to be low on bills this month. Luckily, I was able to settle a credit card debt, which is great =) but I am going to be short on other bills. This really has nothing to do with the other, it's more because I lost my second job.
Anyway, in order to pay everything I need about $338 in the next two and a half weeks. It would be best for me to have more for food, gas money, etc. I already borrowed all I could,which is how I got this amount up to what it is.
Does anyone have any ideas at all for me? It's important for me to be able to pay as I doubt I will be able to play catch up next week.. I'm so upset over losing this second job.. I didn't even make that much there but i guess it added up :'(




Well this takes some work but how about lawn mowing? My Son has started mowing lawns this summer and it has been one of the easiet things to do, he really walked around our neighborhood, knocked on doors, offered to mow, he sets his prices pretty low, however he is only 15 and to him its still money no matter how small...But folks have been very recepctive, almost "happy" to see him at the door. I think so many folks are busy working and doing extra sport type things with their kids, the grass is the last thing they want to think about...Just a thought.

Thank you for your advice, I'm not sure how well this will work as I live in the city and most people around me don't have yards or grass! But I can check to see if maybe it will work in a family member's neighborhood or something.

Do you belong to a church? Sometimes, members need help around their house(s), such as garage & attic cleaning, heavy duty house cleaning, and are willing to pay for your help. One person helping another. Because you are a member, they tend to be more receptive.

Hope this helps.

Talk to the pastor, he might know of people who need assistance and can link you.

We use this in our church. Especially our senior (65+) members, like having people over to help them. It gets the chores done, gives them company, and allows the helpers to make some extra money. Everyone wins!
