Yes LL.. will go overdrawn.. just trying to desperatly keep it to a minimum.. looks like it's gonna be ~800o/d at the moment and I'll never get out of that..

There's some stuff I can reduce for next month so that I can start getting out of it again but I need to pay some stuff tht won't wait this month

Are you in London? Doing focus groups for market research used to bring me in some money (cash!) for doing a couple of hours in an evening watching some ads/talking about a new product.

have you been for a benefits check to make sure you are getting all you are entitled to?

MascaraOHara Fri 01-Aug-08 22:37:36

I'm not entitled to any benefits.

Could look into a carboot but lots of prep and would struggle I think to have a stand and keep dd(6) entertained.

Could you put a card in the newsagents and do some ironing when dd is in bed?

Advertise in local shops to do ironing. You can charge at least £8 per hour.

you dont have to prepare stuff for a car boot, just sling it in the car, get a pasting table form someone and dump it all on the table when you get there - they love a rummage! make dd look really really poor (in an oliver twist kind of way) you might get more money off people grin

Sorry Avena, by the time I finished typing you had got there. Great minds think alike eg?!!

Our dds love helping us at the car boot and were okay about us selling their old stuff.

AvenaLife Fri 01-Aug-08 22:47:44

grin I've got just under 1K to magic from somewhere in 5 weeks. It will be hard. sad

No real prep needed for car boot. Best not to price. You offer price - they accept or offer alternative - you don't like it - don't If you think you can get a better price on ebay, then save it. As long as you make your entrance fee you are in profit.

it is amazing what you can sell at a car boot sale, make sure you go to one that is fairly busy - ie Sunday morning one, ask around get recommendations.

there's always the old-fashioned way....

I agree with KM's suggestion of working. I do hope she wasn't referring to the oldest profession though ...
