    hi

    I can understand where you are coming from when you say that you need to make money fast.

    If you need money fast then I would suggest a crisis loan from dwp , as you may be able to get a loan from them to get food to stop you from starving this is all dependant on your circumstances but the worst they can say is no.

    if that fails try every agency you can to start making money some pay a week in arears this may give you some time in waiting from a response from the job you have applied for.
    you may find you only get a day or two out of an agency per job but that would help towards your target.

    I hope this helps as nobody in this country should starve

    all the best in your search for work

  • What about bar work? Sorry if this is a stupid suggestion - I just thought they might be happy to take on part time temporary staff and would probably pay weekly???

    what about medical trials? you get £100-£150 a day.
    Remember the time he ate my goldfish? And you lied and said I never had goldfish. Then why did I have the bowl Bart? Why did I have the bowl?

    And liver failure/a growth/dementia:rotfl:

    I saw this student on Working Lunch who said there is somehting called "skipping" Supermarkets liek asda etc... throw out food which they can't sell on a daily basis (operative statement "can't sell" NOT out of date).

    As long the the store doesn't lock their gates at night you are free to go in and take what you want for free. Although this doesn't really apeal to me if they showed it on BBC's Working Lunch then it must be fine to do.

    Sorry I've been too vague!
    I do have a job, full time, am moving to a new flat beginning of jan and after paying for all that and furniture I have nothing left.

    I've applied for a part time job in the shop beneath the flat, its just because of the way the payday fell (19th) and stuff I've gotten all in a muddle. So I will have zilch left!

    You could ask the shop keeper if they'll consider paying you in advance - as you will be living above the shop they know where you live if you didn't show up to work!

    S.
  • Can't you put off buying the furniture then? Or... I hardly dare even suggest this... if it's just a one off problem do you have a credit card to see you through the month? Or an overdraft?

    Is there something you have bought for your flat that you can take back? A piece of furniture/cooker/fridge anything that you can manage without for 2 weeks. I know its not ideal but you could re-buy it when you get paid.
    Bar work is a great idea, you could make a few quid over new year.
    Borrow of family/friends/neighbour (you have probably thought of that)
    Sell something on ebay, put it on for 24 hours, and you should have some cash within the week.

    I knew there was a reason I've not dialled the number yet;)


    it's called freeganism. basically !!!!!!!!!!s who don't understand capitalism, and the fact that supermarkets only exist because people pay them money for food. so if we all just wait for the stuff that gets thrown out, pretty soon jimmy shopowner closes down.

    (not that I agree with wasting food of course)

    I'm at the limit with all my sources and its not a case of putting off buying furniture... I have to have something to sleep on, I've not bought much. Just a bed and something to sit on. Its really hard because of Woolworths closing here allthe jobs seem to be going to those who need them most. Which is okay because I don't want people to starve either
