    Agree with @brunt 's suggestion about the textbook collecting and reselling. I knew someone who made some needed money from reselling books found at the curb. Not sure that the person made as much as the buddy of a buddy mentioned-he must have his technique down, have a vehicle and know which programs need books the most!

    Sometimes going on walks to look for refundable bottles and cans can lead to random coins or bill finds as well. It's money and you choose when to go.

    Bullet tooth you have amazing writing skills. Even though I felt incredibly sad for your situation I enjoyed your descriptive and colorful way of telling your story. I wish I could give you suggestions of ways to make some money but I was looking in this section for ways of doing that myself BUT reading your story made me see the glass half full. If this was a go fund me page, I'd happily donate a few bucks for that alone.
    It's too late now but with the flooding issue, 311 is a great resource. You would at least get the camera inspection for free and occasionally the problem is due to something on the City side of the property line.
    I wish you luck and hope you hone your writing skills. Maybe find some workshops and get out there, work on the social anxiety and network. There is a creative, funny personality here that comes through even at this bad time in your life. I hope you find a way to make it all work out.

    One thing, have you thought of airbnb? If you have an extra room, that could bring in some extra cash.

    Hey, In this case collateral loan canada would be the best option as you can get instant cash according to the value of your car's title.

    With all due respect, this thread is about making money, not going further into debt. The two are the antithesis of each other.

    Debt is always an undesirable choice of varying degree of bad. But someone who is in a position of needing extra money to get by, any action that increases their expenses going forward is asking for a whole world of hurt.

    Hi there: I admire your spirit of fighting back against debt. Posters have covered many of the possibilities so I only have two to add.

    I dumpster dive on a selective basis. For example, our high school threw out a batch of computers because they were updating their equipment. Nothing wrong with the older ones, and they were salable. My DH and I were hip deep in keyboards for about an hour and scavenged a few complete units which my husband fixed up for a local charity that gives free computers to poorer children.
    I have been a working writer for decades now and I've made a decent enough living at it. It is difficult to start from zero but you can work on becoming a copy writer -- not glamor writing, to be sure, but it can pay OK. http://www.rachel-ingram.co.uk/copyw...ce-copywriter/ If you like to work with words, this might be an option.

    I agree with this post...you have GREAT writing skills! Start a blog! You can do it for next to free if not free, & tell your story! Visit other blogs to get ideas, ones like Mr Money Mustache, Millenial Money Man, Cait Flanders, Budgets are Sexy, half Banked, Biggerpockets, Rockstar Finance best blogs, etc. All may not amount to being 100% usable, but bits from every site you encounter will paint a picture that you can dialogue about to gain your own following! Good luck & be amazing!

    The interesting part in this thread is the list of things which were suggested - one of them sticks out in particular:

    - I would not recommend selling the house in a raising housing market!

    A better strategy would be to use the equity in the house and put it to work constructively.

    With interest this low, it's quite easy to register a secured line of credit against the house and structure a revers mortgage in such a way as to invest the equity in some selected ETF's with the result being a self-liquidating loan or an income producing arrangement which creates more than the amout of the monthly payments on the loan, with the rest of the positive cash flow being available to reduce or even cover living expenses entirely.

    On a few occasions I was able to follow basically the same strategy and put super low interest rate MBNA VISA cash advances at 0.95% into high yielding ETF's for 18 months creating a positive cash flow for the entire duration on a smaller scale than what may be possible by using a more substantial amount of money as the equity in a home or other property would provide.

    Knowing how to assess the risks and rewards on both sides of the equation helps to make these type of transactions relatively safe and profitable.

    maybe look into getting in to data input or medical transcriptions. If you can get security cleared maybe transcription for the crowns office or ppsc.
