  • When you find out let me know... you can try pawning if you have nice things to pawn (we don't) Or a title lone BUT be careful with that because you do have to pay it back and the interest sucks.

  • sell what you can. If it is not a necessity in life ie/ ipod, extra computers, tvs, cameras & even cars you don't need it. do you have gold jewelry? gold prices are still pretty good and you can sell it to most jewelry stores not pawn shops.

    call and try to negotiate your bills they may be willing to work with you or extend your terms. Good luck

  • To be very honest. If I was about to lose everything the tv would sell, the computer would sell, any electronic gadgets would sell. My fridge would stay because of food. Sorry but you do what you got to do even when it sucks.

  • I know.... I am conteplating selling my laptop... And hubby was out of work for 2 months and just got back and we got his first paycheck today.... so the bill companies have already extended to about our limits... And I dont think we will lose everything... mainly our car... and that we NEED because hubby has to get to work somehow. We have borrowed from everyone we can while he was out of work... we are virtually tapped out...

  • Is there anyone who needs some babysitting? Any friends of yours you could offer to do that for? Tell friends to inform friends of friends if they need a babysitter or someone to house sit or pet sit or anything like that?
