I have tried to notify my friends on ATS of this, one at a time, but the "flood control" is making it rough.
Seeing nowhere to post this specifically, I chose this section, but mods may see a better place...
A note to my friends:
As of Sunday, we (my fiance and I) will have to be out of where we are - the people we have been staying with, doing domestic, organization and yard
work, will need the space for a friend who is in the same boat as we are (unable to find work, would be homeless).
I am sorry they had to choose. I am sure it was a difficult choice for them.
I will try to make it onto ATS when I can, but it is likely to be rare.
I thank you for your friendship and look forward to better times.
You might try the temp agencies, and day labor places til you can
find a good job.
Donate blood or plasma if you can.
Post an Ad on craigslist that you are looking for a room, and looking
for work and see if someone can work something out with you.
Get the sunday paper and and circle all the jobs you could do
if your life depended on it, then apply for the ones you think you
could tolerate out of that group.
Get a few supplies and go door 2 door with 1 story businesses and offer
to wash their windows for $5 - 10 cash.
Once your good at it you can do it in 20 - 30 min. and if you get
established with a few places it can turn into some decent money.
I knew a guy that was averaging $15/hr cash doing this and
he worked up to about 20 hrs a week worth of work, and it
made him over $1,000 a month part time.
If your in good shape and you get the good squeegees you can
do it pretty quick.
Also to save money apply for food stamps, and contact your
local equivalent of the jesus house for one hot meal a day.
If you do make some decent money try to refrain from getting
a place right away, and look hard for a VERY cheap way to live
with what is coming in the economy soon.
As bad as it is now, things are soon to get worse due to the
500+ trillion derivatives nightmare that is coming.
Consider getting a towable RV camper to park someplace VERY cheap.
My friend got a 24 ft. camper on craigslist for $1,100.
Any bills and or credit cards call them and tell them you are
homeless and they will not be getting any money for awhile.
Get a phone book and call all the local churches and ask them
if they have any part time work, or could ask their members
if they need any part time workers.
If you want any more advice email me at onsiterepair[AT]yahoo.com.
Good Luck !
