Any ideas on how I can make some money? We are going to be about 250.00 short this month. That is with cutting everything extra out. No eating out or buying anything that we don't need. I really hate months like this. Any ideas???? Thanks

Put up some posts that you'll babysit on weekend nights for those parents wanting to go out.  You can make $50/night doing it!

This is kind of odd, but how about donating plasma?  I've never done it, so I don't know if it hurts or not, but I know around here they pay for you to do that.

are you a SAHM? Have you tried cleaning a few houses, babysitting, running errands for someone?

offer babysitting services for a few kids on the weekend and keep them over night. You could charge 30-50 per kid and the parents could have an entire evening to themselves.

I keep seeing commercials that HR Block is giving early tax returns, up to $1000. If you are usually due a return, you could look into that.

Try getting free groceries from a food bank and churches, to cut down on grocery expenses this month. Go through your house and see if you have things (clothes, jewelry, books, knick knacks, etc) that you can post for sale on craigslist.com. I'm sure there are many more ways to come up with the shortfall, but that's a start at least! Good luck, I've sooo been there many times and it's scary.

do you know if any churches around you do angelfood??? I can help you find a location??? They save us $$ on our grocieries and it is pretty good this month. .here the ordering is the 10th and pick up is the 17th.. but each place is different... send me a pm if ya want some help finding a location... these sites recieve units f food that are donated depending on how many they sell.. as a way of giving back to the host church... maybe you can get one that is donated???
