Wow that is a big bill to pay!! Well I could only advice you to to think positive that all of that bills will be paid. Aside from that I would advice that you work really hard to earn that amount. I just just hope that your bills are not due all at the same time coz it will really be a big headache to you but then stay calm at all times. Work it out and when all things are settled make sure that you live below your means so that you would not get into that situation again or at least avoid from getting into that tight situation again.

I'm lucky as my bills all come at various times of the month so we don't have a pile up of due bills all at once. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

i can't think of anything else except these two options... one is to work harder and ask for extra shift from your workplace to earn extra money... secondly, ask for a loan from one of your family member that is willing to help you and pay him/her off when you get a paycheck... that's why i try my best to manage my money properly to avoid ending up in a tight situation... good luck and hope everything will work for you...

i forget to add the most important one... that is don't forget to pray... the power of prayer is enormous and definitely can change things... ask God to open up ways to resolve your problem and He will make a way... God Bless you...

Hi cefaz_21! You're right! Maybe a miracle will do the trick. LOL! Really getting difficult here in our country nowadays, isn't it? I hardly make both ends meet because business is not doing great and the bills are piling up! And you will hear on tv that our economy is really doing great! Illusion or what? Hang on my friend! I pray for miracle not just for you but for all of us! Take care and have a nice day! :)

I have to say that money won't come easily. Perhaps you can try to use a little bit money to buy lottery. But it is too hard to win something. Or perhaps you can use USD10 to buy something and try to sell them via the net. It won't be a big investment anyway, but at least you can try to sell something via the net and make a little profit from it.

Well a prayer right here might help you lol I could suggest a few things that might work for you...one you could try and get a credit card(depens on when the bill is due)and if you can get the credit card you can take it and get cash out of it someway and then go and pay your bill with that and then just pay off the credit card when you get your paycheck...theres another way that you might be able to get some money...if you have any friends or someone that you are really close to they might could loan you some!

Oh no, I had been in that situation several times. Just when I need to pay my bills, my wallet runs out of money. Sometimes it happens after a friend borrowed my extra money then out of nowhere comes out a necessity for me to pay something. But the friend who borrowed my money will say that s/he will pay me in one month :-# Well, what I've learned in life is that our problems have their own way of solving themselves at the right. Even if we worry all night it won't help us. So just relax and stay happy. God bless you, Cefaz!

You cannot have zero money in your wallet, because you never know what will crop up. If I were you, and I don't have any means to get that 5 thousand pesos to pay my bills, I'll just keep my 400 pesos. I'd like to have a little bit for emergency purposes. I know there may be penalties for late payments, but seeing that I won't be able to pay off my bills anyway, I'll just suffer the consequences (interests, whatever). But if I could get a no collateral, interest free loan from my loved ones -- parents come to mind first -- I'd ask them for the loan of 5 thousand pesos and pay off the bill.

Hello cefaz_21, You are giving me a hard time *smiles* Well, it is hard to answer your question. Maybe you should try to borrow from someone close to you: family members, relatives or close friends? But again, if you decided to borrow, you must have a way to pay them back. If not, thing will get worse in a near future. Hope God will help you, friend!

hi cefaz! ^__^ wow. why did you let your bills mount that big?? even if you work 24/7 here in myLot you won't be able to earn that sum. ^__^;; that's a real big problem. maybe you can borrow money from your friends or relatives. or maybe you can sell some of your stuffs you're not using. although I think that's too much. ^__^;; I'm sure there are lots of people who can lend you money. or maybe you can bet on a race or cockfight using your 400 pesos. LOL

Do what I do, file the bill with all the others and eventually it will get paid.

Any chance of asking a friend or family member for a small loan until next pay?

Wow! That's quite much huh? With the amount you have left in your wallet, I think that the best thing you can do is to borrow money from your family or friends. Check which among those bills you have needs immediate attention and work on that. How about part-time job? That would help. Or... if you have some things in your closet that can still be sold, why not have a garage sale? Don't lose hope, you will get through this. God Bless!

I have been in your position many times. Just keep the faith and things will happen for you I think. You have to make them happen most times, but it seems to me that when my need is heavy, I always find a way to make money to get bills paid.
