My rent is due on January 1, 2013 and I won\'t have a paycheck until a week afterwards

PLEASE he, Virginia

I was laid off two months ago and I had been looking for a job since. I finally found one, but I don't start until next week. I've gone through my emergency funds. I won't have enough money to make my $625 rent. There are other bills that need to be paid, but I'm the most concerned about having a roof over my head, the rest can wait for my first paycheck. Our landlord refuses to extend the due date. I don't have many personal items, so I really don't have anything to sell. I'm just having a really rough time and I just need to get over this one hurdle to make it. Anything will help. Thank you!
