How you can make quick cash, when you need it most!


As a college student, I am always in need of money, for school, bills, housing, etc. Stressing about money, is never something someone wants. In always need of cash, I have multiple things that you can do, to make that payment on time. And no they are not going to take months to earn you money, you will be getting cash in hand, same day!



Trust me, there are clothes in your closet that you have not worn in months, maybe years. So, what better way to make some spare cash, than by selling your clothes. Plato's Closet is my go to place, to sell my unused clothes. Plato's Closet also takes more than clothes. They take, shoes, accessories, and purses. So clean out that closet, and make some cash! And, Plato's closet accepts both women and men clothes. Just know, that you will have to leave your items to get appraised, and then based on your items condition, brand, and need, they will let you know how much they will buy your items for. And then off you go, with cash in hand, and a clean closet too! Check Plato's Closet out here:




Look around you, there is bound to be something in your room or home that you are not using or need. Make some quick cash off those items, by using selling apps on your phone. Apps like, 5miles, Offer Up, and Let go, allow you to post and sell items through their app. Just snap a picture, price/describe and then post! Have Facebook? Then utilize their own selling application, Facebook Marketplace. Similar to selling apps, Marketplace also allows you to post on your feed. You never know, someone you know, may want what you are selling. All these selling applications, allow you to safely message through the app, without ever having to give out your phone number.



You are not only helping yourself, by making money, but you will also be saving and benefiting someone else's life. Find your local plasma or blood donation clinic, and schedule an appointment. Your 1 donation of blood will save 3 lives, so why not donate your blood. Just be sure to eat and drink plenty of fluids before hand. And maybe take a driver, if this is your first time giving blood or platelets, as you may get ill after. And with platelets you can make up to $300 a month! So schedule your appointment to give now!

These are just a few, things I have tried or done, when in need of cash. So, if you are ever in need of money, try one of these 3 ways to make fast cash.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
