    I have an overdue water bill. They are scheduled to disconnect my water at 8 AM. I am completely broke with buying Christmas for the kids and all. Article writing has been so slow this week. Does anyone know of any other ways that I could get paid today? I don't have time for affiliate marketing. I need the money today. I tried offering a buy 3 articles get 1 free to my clients, but so far no bites. I guess everyone is broke this week. I just can't imagine trying to do Christmas without water.
    Thanks!

    My rate for the special is $1 per 100 words. My normal rate is $1.25 per 100 words. There is a minimum of 500 words for the buy one get one free special.

    Samples and feedback

    They won't take a minimal payment? Most water utilities are required to take them and make arrangements.

    It's not a water company like AquaAmerica, where they would accept partial payments and arrangements.

    It's through the city so the bill must be paid in full. The last 3 Christmases that I have lived here, they have given everyone until the first week of January to pay their December bills. According to my neighbor they have been doing it for 23 years. I guess they're not feeling the Christmas spirit this year. I know, my fault for depending on them to follow tradition and do the same.

    How on earth do you have a $108 water bill? California or something?
    I live in a 6500 sq ft house with 3 other people and never had paid more than $60 (total)

    Showers, laundry, cooking, water for dogs, etc... That includes a 10% late fee. And if I don't get it paid by 8AM there is a $50 disconnect/re-connect fee. YAY!

    The water bill is expensive. I'm complained about it several times to our landlord. I really do believe that there is a leak somewhere. I've expected the basement and haven't noticed anything, but I'm not a plumbing expert.

    Before we moved here our water bill was 50% cheaper. Another reason why I want to move.

    If anyone has any more suggestions, I would be soooo soooo appreciative. I've been up all night trying to get the money. Since I wasn't able to find anything, this means that I've been working on ChaCha. Which brings me an average of $2.25 an hour, yay! But as someone mentioned desperate times call for desperate measures.

    I've been trying to sell my Squidoo lens creation on DP as well. There's a lot of people interested but no one has ordered yet. :( I wish Fiverr would pay out sooner. When I list my article writing service on there I'm always busy. But I don't have the time to wait for them to payout.

    I would say sell some stuff you don't need anymore on Craigslist. Though that may not be quick enough..

    I did list some items. So far I haven't received any responses. I think people are concentrating on buying gifts right now. :)

    By soulmate do you mean my husband? If he had the money, then the bill would be paid. :) I don't have much family, just my immediate family including my mom and siblings. Now of them are in the position to be able to help either. Thank you though for the suggestion. I just wish I could do it.
