Apply online and walk into the place to introduce yourself in professional clothing. This massively increases your chances. What are you applying for though?
Loans: are you paying interest? If yes, use a balance transfer or free balance transfer to transfer the whole thing or a portion of the loan into a place you dont have to pay interest on it. Often times credit cards have introductory 0 percent rates for almost 2 years and if you make payments, it helps build your credit. Banks have these, and so do credit unions sometimes. This is all assuming you or someone willing to cosign with you has good credit which I dont know. That's what I recommend to people struggling with debt IF THEY FEEL RESPONSIBLE ENOUGH TO MAKE PAYMENTS ON TIME AND OR HAVE THE ABILITY TO. If you don't, don't get involved with credit cards since the interest will ruin your life.
If you're really struggling, see about getting into a roomate situation. It sucks and is not fun but it's better than being evicted.
Gas: don't drive frivolously, it seems straightforward but it can save deceptive amounts of money if you plan your trips to be close to one another and not across town and back.
Food: Chicken and rice with lots of spices is cheap. Also spaghetti.
TLDR: I just wrote a semi decent budgeting list, so if you want have a look
safarisamI’ve applied to so many jobs and not one has called me back. I need a second job or one that doesn’t just pay $11 an hour. I can barely make rent and loans, never mind food and gas. How the fuck am I supposed to survive? I couldn’t afford to move to another city even if I wanted to— not that there would be any jobs elsewhere. My boyfriend (and I) are priced out his hometown.
