  • Try going to DSS and see if they have any way of helping. I know here they can help someone in your situation pay utilities. Maybe there is a program for rent. If not Im sure they can give you advice.


    BTW, I don't know where you live but damn 1000 bucks is high.  I'd move.

  • You could try Catholic Charities, or if worse comes to worse, a payday loan,,, could you talk to your landlord and explain the situation?

  • Payday loan is probably not a good idea. You need an additional $1000, not $1000 early. If both you and your husband can sell plasma that could help you get some cash fast. Sell stuff, have a garage sale, offer to mow lawns or shovel side walks (if it's still cold where you live.) Possibly babysitting?

    Call your landlord too and tell him/her that you think you are going to be late and see if you can't work something out. Good luck.

  • I agree with the Anon right above me....sell what you can, talk to your landlord.

    But I also agree with sunshine06, we own a double (a 2 apartment house) and our mortgage is onlt $500, $1,000 for RENT here in Western New York would get you a LUXURY Condo in the "fancy" suburbs, i'd go apartment hunting.

  • payday loans are stupid trust me I am under them and once you do it your stuck and not only that you wait until payday and other bills become due and you can't pay them because you owe the payday loan and if it's not paid by the end of the due date it's automically deposited. I would yard sale or sale uneeded and unwanted items on your local classifieds on the web. GL
