I suck at asking for help, so I apologize in advance for how awkward this is going to read.
About two years ago I moved out into an apartment and everything was going pretty well, but with the economy going down the tubes my job has been cutting hours left and right and so my income for the last six months or so has been severely curtailed. For the last month or so my savings ran out and I've been living pretty much paycheck to paycheck. Now, I'm moving out at the end of October, so I figured I could skate by okay until then, but alas, life hates me.
My car broke down earlier this month, and fixing it has more or less killed my bank account, such that I really don't have enough money to make rent this month. I am about $250 short and rather out of ideas on where to get it fast. Given that this is the last month of rent I will need to be paying (if I've got this whole thing figured right), I don't really care if I have to go to a payday advance place, because I can pay that off on Friday when my next paycheck comes through, but I was hoping you guys might have some better ideas.
