    I need some way to make money, mhm.

    And I know you people have your ways so I need help. There aren't really any jobs around right now, and even if there were, I don't have a phone at the moment to have anyone contact me so that's out of the question until I can make money for my phone to turn back on. I also need money for groceries, as I have none, and internet/cable which I also have neither. I might have ~$3 in my bank account, lol. Any and all serious suggestions are welcome. If you have some sort of sarcastic comment to add, please please please keep it to yourself. :c

    1) Get a phone number from Google @ http://voice.google.com
    2) Use this number on your resume/applications. Employers will not be able to reach you, but can leave a voicemail for you to see and listen to anytime at http://voice.google.com
    3) You can call employers back from Gmail's inline phone app. Free calls to anywhere in the USA.
    4) Check your voicemails daily.


    In the meantime, in terms of money, unfortunately a lot of things when it comes to neopets require some initial investments i.e shells, unregs, account lists, etc. You might indeed be able to get some of these for free from kind souls, but I don't think it's really worth the effort to try and wheel and deal as a main source of income until you're set up and have plenty of money to invest. What I would recommend is contacting the local temporary agencies or day-labor agencies in your area. The pay is nominal, but usually day-labor pays in cash and you have that satisfaction of being paid everyday. Most temporary agencies will find you work faster than a regular job search, and most pay weekly. It's really all about what you're looking for and moreso what you're willing to deal with in order to get paid. A friend of mine bartends and puts up with the noisy rabble from the drunks but on a good night she's pulled in $300-400 in tips alone because she knows how to manipulate the men. Nothing sexual, just flirty. You could try your hand at something like this, or really anything.

    I wish you the best of luck, but it's on you for the effort and to stoop down to the jobs no one wants to take for the base income. (I flip burgers when I need money ASAP and I'm inbetween jobs, I don't put myself above anything.)

    I didn't know about the google voice thing so thanks. I've gone through a temp agency before and unfortunately the only jobs around here are factory jobs. I did one for a few weeks. It was...awful, to say the least. I actually passed out the first day. o_o I've been applying at fast food places but no hits yet. I've been applying at every job that pops up that I have the ability and qualifications to do. Which is basically a high school degree, lol. I've just transferred to a school in my hometown so that I could work and live at home while going to school to cut back some costs.
    Thank you very much! <3


    Also that fiverr thing is interesting, though I don't think I have anything creative enough for that but I'll look into it, if for nothing more than lulz.

    I'm in college and have more than my fair share of friends in similar situations to you. I have no idea where you live, but have you looked into plasma donation? Where I'm at, you show up and donate for an hour and you get paid $30 on the spot. Plus you can do it twice a week, so that's over $200 a month for hardly any time at all. If there is a university near you, check and see if they are looking for guinea pigs for any studies.
    And finally, a quick google search can help you find any governmental/local assistance programs that may be there to help you out, assuming you qualify.

    Good luck, hun. I'm sure things will be looking up soon!

    Plasma donation is indeed viable if you can deal with the light-headedness or if you do get light-headed. Me, I'm an ox. Didn't phase me at all, but my friend passed out thirty minutes after we were done hehe.

    Personally, I work at a gym, but I pick up shifts as a cocktail waitress/bartender, when I am need of money. You could also try telemarketer, event girl etc.
    Even a newspaper delivery thingy or something would be good. If you don't mind the embarrassment, you could always become a advertiser (basically they will dress you up in weird costumes and you'll have to go around and advertise for whatever they are selling. A friend of mine did this and even-though it wasn't fun, she earned a lot of money from it, so I don't know).
