Re: More financial advice sought
Sorry I keep posting, but this is one of my favorite topics.
You want to raise some cash quickly? Sell all that crap you bought racking up the credit card debt. In the case of the original poster, sell anything you have that has some sort of value.
I'm not suggesting you sell the bed and sleep on the floor, however, most of us have stuff that can raise cash, even if sold at a loss.
While it's not the cool place it once was, Ebay can be very helpfull for selling off stuff. Get a paypal acount, a small postage scale and make friends with the local pack & ship place. You'd be shocked how much money you can raise selling off nick-nacks and collectables that you never even look at anyway. A good friend of mine put a reserve note up for auction thinking he'd get $20 for it....ended up getting $1500. That's extreme obviously, but you can move a lot of items and you never know how much they will raise.
If you bought a $3000 TV, sell the thing to a buddy for whatever you can get. Use some of it to get a $200 tv and use the rest to pay off debt.
Have a garage sale. Even if it only raises a couple hundred bucks, that's money you didn't have before. Pawn some things.
This is a bit more long term, but whatever you can't sell, give to Goodwill and keep the reciepts. Deduct the items from your taxes next year. It doesn't do much to raise cash now, but it will reduce your taxable income later and thats less you have to send the Governement.

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
