I need ideas....

I've exhausted all my resources, I've tried to keep my head above water for much to long as it is.
Other than plasma donation (done that), selling everything (done that) or going on PA (would lose money going this route) what can I do to make so money. My child support is gone, I've interviewed at sooo many places I can't see straight and still haven't found a job. I'm independently employed but nobody is spending....
I really need some fresh ideas. My landlord expects $200 more by Monday and I have nothing! I'm a single mom and already have the best rent in town, moving is not an option. I really need to figure something out. Help me brainstorm ladies!

  • Large department stores are always hiring it seems...the US gov't is also hiring for the census and you can do that whenever your schedule allows, but it doesn't start until April. You must take a short test...the pay is pretty good! Sell some items at a consignment shop...childcare in your home?

  • The Census is a great idea. It's temporary but the pay is great. I know that won't help your immediate situation but it's a start.

    Also, you should look at online jobs, there are some legit ones out there! Earn Money Online
