  • Do you have any gold jewelry you can sell? Many jewelers will buy, they usually advertise for it, and the price of gold is through the roof right now, its an AWESOME time to sell... as long as its at lease 14k, it can be old broken chains, a lone earring...doesn't matter, they melt it all down. I had a pile of chains and old bracelets that I brought in over the summer, I was hoping to get at least $100 for it and I walked away with $750!!! Seriously...give it a shot, you can always say no and turn around and keep your stuff. Good luck.

  • Ok you should call your landload and explain what happened and you will have the rest of the money that your short in this amount of time. Really just picking up the phone and being honest can just fix this and bring your stress level down. GL or selling your gold just may help.

  • Sell some stuff. Computer, TV anything else you have of value. Next month plan better or try to find a job.

  • Pawn electronics or sell jewlery like mentioned above. That's the only way I can think of making $200 in one day (thats legal anyway)

  • "Donate" your blood plasma at a place that pays you for it. They usually pay a lot the first time - I think it was $90 back in 2001 when I did it. Imho, it's a win-win - you get $$, and hospital patients get life-saving blood plasma. There are some pretty sketchy people in there "donating" though...

  • Sell furniture.

    How about your child father. 

    Ask the women shelter in your area for advice. 

    I saw someone post here that they were selling their blood for cash.
