Thanks Mom for donating $60!  And thanks to Robin for allowing me to charge my registration!! That gives me a few more weeks to come up with See More


I hate doing this, but I need help. I have a full time job. I BARELY make enough money to maintain basic household expenses (rent and utilities) and my car payment and insurance. Groceries happen sometimes if I have a little bit of overtime. So, it's the time of year I dread....registration time. My registration is due in like, a week, and I don't have it. Because my rent is due and that takes almost my entire paycheck. I also need one more tire. I have had to replace 3 tires already in the last couple of months, and my tire pressure light is starting to come on intermittently; which means I have pushed that last tire to the limits. Plus, I got a little crack in my windshield a couple of months ago, and I haven't had the deductible for my insurance to get it replaced. It's now a really BIG crack and if I don't get it replaced soon, I will end up with a ticket. Also, the reason I have had to replace my tires so quickly (I just got them last year) is because I need an alignment. And finally, I live in Nevada, and I am a redhead. I spend a lot of time in my car (I commute from Carson City to Reno every day), and I really need to get my windows tinted. I am pretty sure that getting the windows tinted is cheaper than treating skin cancer. Hold on, let me check my insurance....but seriously, this is the lowest priority item and will only get done if I make my goal and can get all the higher priority items paid for. So here's the breakdown: Registration - $200 Tire - $100 Deductible for Windshield replacement - $100 Alignment - $150 Window Tinting - $200 Which totals $750. Big picture, that is not really a lot of money. I actually bring home more than that every payday. But immediate, small picture...I don't have it and it might as well be a million dollars. Bottom line is, I HAVE to keep my car registered in order to get to and from work. That is my number one goal, and if that is all I get out of this, I will be eternally grateful. I figured I might as well as for the rest since I am asking at all. I appreciate ANY help or even consideration to help. I am not anyone important, I don't have a fatal disease, I don't have some great cause, except to keep my transportation so I can keep my job. I work hard for my money and I know you do, too. Thank you for reading my plea.
