Does anyone have any ideas lol.. The amount is actually $1600, but I bet I can yardsale and sell the $600. But I doubt I have enough stuff to get rid of than the $600. I picked up every shift at work possible, so I am tapped out there as well. I think dh can get a few extra shifts.. Anything else I can do??
Need to come up with about $1000 quick :(
Start looking on craigslist for people who need childcare. Offer your services for whatever hours you aren't working already.
What are your dh's work hours? Can he get a second job?
Some things will bring more money if you sell them on craigslist or ebay than at a yard sale. Try to sell higher value items individually.
Cut any and all non-necessities immediately. Depending how desperate you are, you could call up creditors (i.e. student loans, maybe even other bills/mortgage/utilities if you've always been on time with them) and ask if you can delay or skip a payment just this once. I don't know how they'd react, except I know student loans particularly tend to be really good about allowing you to do this!
Do you have any services you can offer or products you can make/sell? Any skills (and obviously you'd need the time to actually do it)? Anyone who owes you money or who could pay you in advance for something (babysitting, birthday gift, etc.)?
How about your W2 withholding -- taxes, 401K, etc? Can you reduce how much is taken from your/DH's paychecks for just a couple months?
