Any good money raising ideas?

The transmission on my car is about to go and that is my only way to make money!!!! So since I do not have enough money to pay for the repairs upfront I am reduced to asking for help to pay! I was told if we were lucky it might last 2 weeks! Any good ideas?

  • Also check around with the local mechanics to see who might be able to help you out before your car dies by arranging for a payment plan to pay for the repairs - places are more likely to work with you when they see that you are trying to keep your only way of making money and that you want to keep working by having the car, and that you are planning ahead.

  • Sell things you no longer want. Either at a yard/garage sale, on Ebay or at a consignment shop.
