i need money fast

where can i get money fast. i don't think an online loan would work for us as i wouldn't be able to pay it back. does anyone do anything to earn money fast? just desperate. we thought of giving blood but i can't and my husband wouldn't be able to cause he would miss work to do it and that wouldn't work as he makes more then the blood bank would give us. our church i'm sure will help but not that much.

  • Sell whatever you have that you can sell.. Big items and small items.

    Go to a local used bookstore and sell books.
    Go to a local used record store and sell cd's, albums if you have them (some are worth a decent amount) and even dvd's.
    Go to a place like Gamestop/EB Games..etc.. and sell video games, gaming equipment/hardware if you have any.
    Go to a pawn shop and sell computer equipment, stereo equipment, tv's, stereos, etc.
    Go to a jewelery and have your jewelry appraised and then sell it.

    Good luck!!! I hope you are able to come up with the funds you need!

  • Also, call all your friends and people you know and offer to clean house for them, detail their cars, mow their lawns, do whatever you have to do. Also make fliers and post them around town.... if you have a talent like art, paint a bunch of pictures and sell them, make murals for people on their walls... whatever you are talented at... market it!

  • I would do a giant garage sale. If you talk to friend and neighbors, maybe they can donate stuff for you to sell to earn the money. One weekend alone, I earned over $300.00!
