How To Get Cash Quick When You Need It
Have you ever struggled from paycheck to paycheck? Struggled to make ends meet? Is it sometimes just a matter of days that you need help to get by? Well you are definitely not alone.
How can you come up with money and fast?! Here are some tips that I use – because with four horses I often find myself in a situation where I need money fast!
- Sell some items you have on hand – I have sold on Ebay, Craigslist, Facebook and more. Things you can sell are items you stockpile if you are a couponer, items your children have grown out of, anything you haven’t used in 2 years, clothing, and believe it or not even parts.
- Coupon – you don’t always need to find a way to make money, you can always find a way to spend less. With four generations in our house we are always in search of ways to spend less. Couponing is one way and smart shopping, even without coupons, is another. The best thing that ever happened around our area was us getting an Aldi’s grocery store. So I always print coupons and have some on hand because even if I only save $10 on a trip – I still save $10! Print your coupons here.
- Save all the time – I am not good at saving. If you were to tell me to put $100 per paycheck into a savings account there is no way I could do it. But through online savings programs such as Digit, Acorns and StashInvest – I always have money that I can tap into, that was saved with no effort and without impacted how I proceed on a daily basis. Seem too good to be true? Well it isn’t. Even my bank has a “keep the change” program so whenever I use my debit card, my bank automatically rounds to whole dollars and moves that change daily to savings.
- Apply for payday loans online. This program is amazing if you only need funds available for a short time – for example to bridge the gap for 5 days til your next paycheck. One place to access these loans is PayDayClick.com.
So when you are struggling, sit back, take a deep breath and build your strategy to get cash quick and for moving forward. You have options…
