How can I come up with $200 before Monday 1/25/10?

My storage is overdue. And I cant find a job, I dont qualify for ANY assistance. I sit here everyday and search the web for any job possible that I might be able to do. It has been 6 months, everyday the same thing. The stress alone is enough to drive me nuts. I dont want to lose my furniture clothes and memories. I had to put them in storage because I lost my house. I am desperate! Please any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. God Bless.

  • Tried the jewelry thing, they only want to give me pennies for a ring with over 1CT diamonds. Anybody in Bmore need their house cleaned? Thanks for the ideas ladies....I am registered with to do housekeeping and babysitting. Everytime I apply for a position, I get no response. Unless they are 1&1/2 hours drive with two toll booths each way and they only want to pay $10/hr. I would burn that up in gas and toll fees.
    I need a miracle!!!!!

  • Ok, this is only gonna help a little, but besides what everyone else mentioned you can sell your old dvd's at the pawn shop for a dollar in most cases...sometimes $2...I did that and got $25 last month...

  • Go on Craigslist in your area, under 'Gigs', go to 'Domestic''ll find people needing all sorts of services like their houses cleaned, their elderly parents needing rides, babysitting jobs etc...good luck hun~!
