Son’s Birthday – Need Cash Fast

My son was turning thirteen and at the same time, I’d had to unexpectedly replace the battery on my car. Since I’m a single mom, it really hurt me in the pocketbook when I had the extra car expense come up at the same time I was trying to save up for my son’s birthday present. As I ate lunch with a co-worker and spilled my worries out to her, I told her I wished my son’s birthday was only one week later because after my next paycheck I’d financially be OK again. I just didn’t have enough money this week to stretch between the car battery (which was a necessity)  and the birthday present. She asked me why I didn’t go to a cash until payday store and get a loan until the following week when my next paycheck came.

I’d never considered borrowing cash until payday but when she mentioned it, I realized that it was a great idea. I went to a local store that I passed on my way home that evening. I was so easy. I was approved right away. All they did was verify my employment and told me the money would be deposited into my bank account by morning. My son had a great birthday. He loved his present. I paid my loan back the following week. It was a great idea to get a loan to tide me over. Now I know what to do if I get into a tight financial situation again.

Have any of you been in such a situation? Care to share your adventures? Please do…
