  • Get a job as a waitress or bartender. Have a yard sale. Take old jewelry to sell at a cash for gold store.

  • Did you recently have an emergency situation that took away your rent/utility money and now you are trying to catch up?

    You should talk with a financial counselor. If you are working that much and not bringing in enough to cover your rent, utilities, than it may not be worth it to have that many jobs.

  • I currently work 4 jobs, go to school full time and have a daughter with special needs. Money is too tight and I haven't paid rent in two months and I am behind on my electric bill by four months. I have to choose between feeding my daughter and rent or gas to get to work. I need some serious answers and I have put everything I own up for sale and no one wants the shit. I don't own much. I took all my old jewlry and sold it, even some I got from my grandma that passed away! Very sad, I am out of options and desperate! HELP!

  • Okay but seriously, have you checked in with social services? Salvation Army? Red Cross? Do you have a Lutheran Social Services in Wisconsin?

  • They can help you with your rent/utilities and they can refer you to other assistance programs.
