Getting fast cash can be as easy or as difficult as you like. Personally, I prefer to take the easy route, but many people do it the hard way. After being down on my luck for so long, I've learned lots of different ways to come up with money when I need it. I'll show you what I've learned in this article.

My favorite way to get fast cash is by pawning stuff. I tend to collect a lot of crap that I really don't need, but may be valuable to someone else. This habit certainly has is pros and cons, but dealing with having a cluttered house is well worth having the ability to pawn it all off on a moments notice to get some money. Pawn shops will buy just about anything, but the things that pay the most are guns, jewelry, power tools, music gear, and bikes. If you have any of this stuff laying around you could be sitting on next months rent!

If I'm low on stuff to sell, I'll turn to a fast cash loan to get me by. Payday loans are a great way to get money very fast. I've been through this quite a few times, so I have a relationship built with a payday lender which gets me more money and a better rate than most. If you're just starting with a payday lender, expect to get around $400 for your first loan with an interest rate of $25 for every $100 borrowed. Each payday lender will vary, but this is a fairly acceptable average.

Relying on payday loans can be disastrous. You'll know the second that you need an extension or another loan to cover the first. It's a dangerous trap that's really difficult to free yourself from. If you feel like you're falling into this trap, take a step back and figure out a way to pay off the first loan that you have out. Do whatever it takes to get that covered, and work your way out from there. Just do not take out another payday loan until you get all of the other ones paid off!

These aren't the only ways to get fast cash, but they are the easiest. Use your resourcefulness and creativity to get yourself paid. It's easy to make money once you understand what skills you have to offer. There's money everywhere, you just have to figure out how to put it into your wallet and not break the law!
