I'm going to vist my sister for a while and have no money for anything. Like blankets,shampoo, food,etc...... and I need a few ways to get money. With out spending a dime on anything. I'm going to help my sister with her son and also take care of my child. I don't really want to make my sister pay me, she's family. But Im going to appley for tanf and medcaid. I want to appley for food stamps but my sister already has food stamps, and if I get them or try her's might get effected. Which I don't want to do to her, but will they get effected?

I don't know about the food stamps. Do you have access to a social worker (for example at your doctor's clinic)? They would be the ones that could answer that the best. In profile, there's a link for cashlagoon. It'll pay in 24 hours in your paypal account. I made about 12 bux in 3 days. It's not a ton, but it should help a little. If you don't have paypal, you should gt paypal, it's free (link at the bottom of the grey part in my profile).

the second site that's really good to make some quick money is associated content. it'll pay in about 1 week (but up to 2 weeks). You write articles about what you know and they pay you 3 bux and up for it. The link for that is also in my profile, under "paid within 1 month." Also free to join.

Her food stamps shouldn't be affected even if you're living together, as long as you're sure to state that you buy and prepare meals seperately. It may vary, depending on what state you're in, but that's the way it is here!! I hope this helps, it can't hurt.

You can get foodstamps while living with your sister but you must say that you are (temporaraly) staying at your sisters's house and you and your child buy, cook, prepare and eat (seperately) from her. (It is very important for you to say that as I am doing the same thing and had no trouble at all after SHE, my sister wrote a note about what I said above and then she signed it and dated it! At first they were going to mess with (her) foodstamps when I tried to sign up but then someone took me aside and told me exactly what to do and say and it worked perfectly! We've had no problem for 3 years so far!

What is sisterhood, its just sisterly love, however old you may become you will be known as sisters. Well ofcourse, initially she or any sister in the world will feel bad that you have come home empty hand but that thought will vanish in a moment and you and your kids will settle down happily enjoying whatever is around you, thats why it is called sister's house, no formalities. See you are lucky you have a sister to go to. May be while staying there you 2 could talk and help each other. I love my sister and her home but I cant visit her so easily because the air ticket is so expensive I cant afford.

I only think that it would affect her if both of you lived in the same house. http://youcan-work-at-home.blogspot.com

If you are living in the same household, one of two things should happen: either her food stamps will not get bothered, and you will get yours separately, or you will both get separate amounts. This will depend on whether you tell them that you prepare meals buy, prepare, and eat your meals separately or together.
