12 Weeks-$3,500?

April 2nd, 2007 at 01:01 pm

The surgeon said that it would be best to schedule Princess' second operation about 12 weeks after this one. So, I'm generating a list of ways I can start getting the $$ together to pay for the second total knee replacement. Thus far, I've come up with:

-my mom's (since passed) Danish Modern Furinture on Craigslist. Too heavy to ship through ebay, I think.

-new full figured bras on ebay from my now defunct business

-more books on Half.com, ebay, or Craigslist

-whatever else I can find (CD's, plus sized clothing, etc.) on Craigslist

Turn in collected cans for deposits.

Start doing massages again p/t. Need to build back up my clientele. I have a friend in San Francisco (about 2 hours away) who says he can schedule 4 massages in a day for me to do. At $65 for an hour and 20 minutes, that could start to make a dent in the cost of the operation, if the set it up on a regular basis. That makes for a very long day...4 hours drive there and back, an easy 6 hours of massaging including setting up between each client. That's about $26 an hour total, not including cost of gas or materials (creams). Hmmm, gas up and back should be about $30 now with the rise in prices, so $23 an hour.

I'm going to call the pet rescue organization and see if they can help at all. Then I'll go out to the city animal shelter where I adopted my other dog and see if they have any connections to help me out. It was also suggested that I get ahold of the local pet stores, PetSmart, PetsCo, etc. and see if they know of anything. I'll let you know how it goes. Maybe I should change my $20 Challenge into a $3,500 challenge?

That's all I can come up with at the moment. All help is appreciated.

    Can you do massages on Saturdays? Maybe if you could do six on a Saturday it would have less expenses to get there.

    I see that you are single. Can you cut your grocery bill in half for the next twelve weeks and eat as simply and cheaply as possible? You might be able to get a few hundred from that, unless you already eat as simply and cheaply as possible.
