Not sure if this is for real?? There are plenty of opportunities out there for the taking. If you're that bad off, it might be time to take a break from internet access, and other amenities.

Check craigslist for temp jobs. Plenty of entry-level jobs last time I looked.
Hubby got a job stocking shelves at walmart for a while thru Craigslist.

Id be careful of loans..If you cant afford your bills now, adding a loan payment on top of that will be tough.
That said, there are payday and title loans everywhere.
Personally, Id recommending getting another job rather than a loan.

In the last week I've seen no less than 5 "now hiring" signs. One at a UPS store. Few fast food places. Etc. Get another job. Do NOT get one of those short term payday loans. That'll set you farther back and ruin your finances even more. They're a sham.

Of course then they were only .99.

Been times where that .99 burger was too much. Had my fair share of ramen noodle and foodshelf bread. I can look back and laugh now but boy oh boy did that suck.

I don't know about now, but not too long ago, you could get 10 packs of ramen noodles for $1. LOL. Noodles, hot dogs, hamburger meat, and chicken really help to make your money stretch. Angel Food is also helpful, but the food is kind of nasty.

I would say one of the easiest jobs to get is a non-commissioned/unarmed security job as long as you don't have a criminal record. You can take the test at the security company doing the hiring and immediately start working after you pass it. Security companies are always hiring and they don't have high standards.

Didn't take long for that one to pop-up.
I guess I'm the only one that has friends with internet access

The internet is even better than the classifieds these days when it comes to looking for a job and networking. The internet is also accessible for free at the library or any place with a free wifi hotspot.
