For many people, it seems that we just about get caught up on bills when another one arrives – leaving us without that financial cushion until the next pay check arrives.

There’s a fix for that! No matter how in the red you may be, there are numerous ways to find extra money when you need it – and it may not be as difficult as you might think.
