I need a way to make money, other than selling my self. Any ideas?

I can't get a job right now, just because I don't have a "skill" and jobs/"now hiring" suck around here. All I can think of is standing on the corner with a sign around my neck that says "$50 for a good blow" I couldn't bring myself to do that, so I'm juggling bills and trying to get extra cash. I already sold my junk that was worth money, 2000 wat amp, 12" subs, coffee table, car dvd player.....everything we don't use that could make good money. What else can I do.



I did not buy all that junk for the car (speakers, amp, ect.) It was given to my fiance a couple years ago and we don't have the car that they were in anymore. Just for the bashers who say I shouldn't have bought that stuff in the first place if I'm broke.

  • sounds like we are in the same boat! And I was thinking about doing an escort service... instead of the corner thing. Pretty sad when it gets that hard to just live!!! We haven't sold anything just yet but will be selling out couches (already don't have tv's) and they were given to us as well.
    I was also thinking about waiting tables at a nice restaurant so I can get some form of a tip. Otherwise, I'm out of good ideas... I hope you figure it out soon!!! I just wanted you to know, you're not alone!

  • Well I cant say i ever got to the point where i considered selling myself but we have been to the point where we literally just had basics.

    We sold off anything worth anything
    cut way down on everything, like driving, keeping lights on...etc anything to make life less expensive. We even sold our own bed to make ends meet. It got pretty sad for a while. But after that next thing we knew is opprotunities started comming to us and we took full advantage of them. Hang in there. Its temporary discomfort.

  • OK, I feel your desperation. Health and Human Resources, moving in with family members to help out, local food banks, WIC, churches, if you have internet access (which you seem to have) make money or start to online through affiliate programs that have no start up fees that you can advertise. Also networking. What skills do you have? Do you make things? Can you offer babysitting, caregiving or domestic help in your area? Take a deep breath and think outside the box. It is tough and there may be more sacrafices down the road but don't "sell" yourself short! YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN THAT AND THINGS WILL HAPPEN FOR YOU! Been there, not fun but things will change! Keep your head up Mamma!

  • I've considered selling myself, it's not like i'd be cheap!!! Damn, DH and I have already discussed my prices!!! Then we can see about taping and selling porn! We don't want to be RICH just able to live a little better and then we could make it to where I still stay home and take care of my child during the day just work at night after I put her in bed

  • sounds like your DH doesnt have much respect for you if he would discuss how much his wife is worth to sell herself to make money....

  • Times are tough now for everyone. If you can get public assistance then do it, that's why it's there.

  • "Then we can see about taping and selling porn!" No one is going to buy your porn when it's free on the internet.
