Need to make $100 for an ipod touch
Ok, so I'm really excited about the new 4th generation ipod touch that just came out, and none of my friends have it. I have never had an ipod exept for an ipod shuffle I got for Christmas a few years ago. I found it just about useless without a screen, and the whole "shuffle" thing didn't work out like I thought it would. So, now I'm going to get a 32gb 4th generation ipod touch. The problem is, I'm $100 short. I actually do have $100 more and then some, but that's in a stock account and I need all the money I can get in that. Unfortunately, I didn't get accepted for my job application to the local ice cream shop at the beginning of the summer, so all of my money came from grass cutting. That actually pays really well, at least at the beginning of the summer. All in all, I made about $700 over the summer, which I was planning on putting toward big purchases later on, like a car and gas for the car, and flight school. Unfortunately, once it wasn't worth it to walk around the neighborhood with my lawnmower and ask people if they wanted me to cut their grass, I stopped, and so did the money. I stored most of it in a bank account before I could go crazy and spend it all, but now I have exactly $200 that won't survive to the car... but I can get a job next summer. Or cut grass and get past that $1000 mark that I've never gotten to. So fortunately about $575 is safe in the bank and stock accounts, and with a recently found stash of money in my desk, I have accumulated the $200 I just mentioned. My parents are unwilling to help pay for it, so I'm on my own. I'd like to know if there's anything I can do that can get me $100 in a week or less... any suggestions? And please don't say ask 5 people for $20... somehow I don't think that will work.
