If you already have a job, Go back to school to get a better job to earn more money. If you are in school, get a second job. Or look on www.craigslist.com for work.....

x2. One of the biggest problems in America today IMO.

Sell your body. Or drugs. Or sell your body for drugs and then sell the drugs.

hey, wait a minute-what is this little square plastic thing in my wallet-doesnt it allow me to buy stuff just by pushing it through some little machine and bam, the part is purchased
only down fall is that you get a rectangular white envelope in the mail after so long wanting a check
why cant we just use the plastic thing and forget about it and enjoy our parts

Umm no, possesion? But maybe try starting your own business. Offer a simple service or sell certain items.

You might try delivering Pizza. I wouldn't suggest you try to make a career out of it, but it's OK for 3-6 months.
My son made $40-50-60 a week in tips. That was 15 years ago. I would guess you can do better than that today.
If you have any, DESTROY your credit card(s). If you can't afford to pay cash, you can't afford it.
For every $1,000 you buy on a card, you pay back about $1200 or more.

, but i wouldnt destroy the card, i only use mine if i know ill pay it off at the end of the month-no interest that way and you dont have to carry alot of cash on you, i use it for fuel-if you do destroy your card though, dont close the account because that actually looks bad on your credit
and as far as the pizza thing goes, that racks up alot of miles on your truck real fast

Run guns, easier than drugs, profit margin about the same, Punishment if caught is less.

If you have that kind of self control, that's fine. Most people don't. I have 2 cards myself. One is a gas company card and gets me $.10 per gallon off at the pump.
The other I've had for over 20 years with the same bank. I only use that one when I travel. Hotels, rent a cars, etc. For everything else I use my debit card.

Actually just the opposite is true. Credit officers look at how much credit you have available. The thinking is. If you have several cards,
even if some of them haven't been used in years, you might possibly go out and max out all your cards after you get the loan.
If you closed an account on your own, it shows up on your report as "Account closed at Consumer's request." and there's no problem.
If you were forced to close the account or had it closed because of bad payment history, that's what looks bad on your rating.

That all depends on where you live. If you live in/near a small town with only 1 or 2 pizza places, you might end up piling on the miles.
Rideabike lives just north of Orlando, FL. A very large urban area. There's probably a pizza place every few blocks.
So it's unlikely any delivery is going to be more than 2-3 miles each way.
So unless you're making 20-25 runs per night, very unlikely, except twice a month on payday, you're not likely to drive more than 25-30 miles per nigh. Probably less.
The easiest way to find out is to go to a few places and talk to the people that are doing it. They'll tell you how many miles they drive per night.
